Win a Dimplex SP9 Fire
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.
So if you are hosting your first Christmas, watch this video to get some tips on what's hot this cool season when it comes to decorating. From handmade placemats in festive shapes to table runners, from using wreaths inside as wall decorations to plug-in heaters by companies like Dimplex, it's possible to make your home look great without spending a fortune.
As if that wasn’t enough Dimplex are giving you the chance to win one of their stylish and trendy SP9 plug in heaters to make sure you'll be cosy this winter. To be in with a chance of winning, answer this question...
