1.Invite guests with a well-dressed tree, hanging garlands and creatively wrapped gifts. Look at nature for inspiration such as eucalyptus branches and leaves,
driftwood and shells, rosemary and holly from the garden.
2. Decorate your backyard with summery accents that encourage lounging around in your outdoor space by providing comfy chairs, beanbags and cushions.
Don’t forget the banana lounges and hammocks for a ‘siesta’ after the Christmas feast.
3. Entertain families and friends by setting up fun activities for all such as cricket on the lawn, games in the pool and making festive mocktails and cocktails.
4. Set the scene for a laidback lunch with a relaxed Australiana table setting using linen tablecloths, white china and beautiful glass wear. Create
a handmade centrepiece out of eucalyptus branches and pinecones.
Now, all that is left to do is fill the table with your favourite festive treats (either cooked at home or prepared by a Melbourne catering company) and celebrate!
