Thursday 26 November 2009
It's quite easy to overload the house in the festive season with tinsel and baubles, but often it's the small and subtle touches that have the biggest effect on houseguests. And if you're hosting your first Christmas, the pressure is definitely on to put on not just a healthy spread, but also keep the surroundings stylish and sophisticated.
With distant relatives visiting for the festive season, they will either criticise or compliment you on the Christmas trimmings – not only of the turkey, but also the dining table, lounge room, and anywhere else they'll congregate.
