"Each Christmas, we gather the year's well-loved party decorations and use them to dress the tree as a spirited reminder of the year that's been. This year, we'll host a family paper craft session to make our decorations. Style-wise, it'll be abundant in colour and pattern, topped with a little (ok, maybe a lot) of sparkle."

It's bright and beautifully balanced with loads of family-friendly Christmas activities to get everyone involved!

"I tend to keep my Christmas styling airy and bright so this year, I'm incorporating tonal whites, creams and silver with fresh gum and pinecones scattered into the mix. I always have a Christmas scented candle burning, so as soon as you walk in the door, there's no mistaking that the season is here! I'll be layering the table with lots of textural white and natural table linen, dressing it with silver and white baubles scattered through a real gum garland."

"After years of white subtle decorations, Christmas this year will more fun and colourful. Bright decorations and handmade drawings will feature on the tree and, for the table, I'm planning on painting an abstract design onto some old fabric for the tablecloth. I'll also sprinkle in some fruits and florals for an exuberant and delightfully haphazard effect. I can't wait to make a beautiful mess with loved ones."
