The festive season is a time when you’ll be welcoming more visitors than usual. They’ll be dropping by with gifts, coming over for Christmas lunch or dinner and around for catch-ups in that awkward week between Christmas and New Year’s.
Because of that, you’ll want to make sure your home looks its best and is dressed for the holidays — but not in a tacky way, of course. You can still have decorations that convey the holiday theme, without them being gaudy.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite pieces that fit that bill. From green-trimmed side plates and linen napkins, to red and gold ornaments, these are the decorations that after Christmas is over, you may even want to keep out.
Forget the cheesy wrapping paper, and opt for paper with quality art instead. Available to buy or complimentary with a House of Lita purchase, this paper features artwork by Australian artist Annie Everingham.
