JUST ADD SPARKLE
Make anything festive by adding a little sparkle! If you don't have Christmas cookie cutters handy, work with whatever shapes you have by sprinkling with edible glitter. You can also add interest to your place settings by dipping objects, like the pear above in gold paint.
There is no doubt that one of the best things about Christmas is the familiar feeling of a family gathering. While wedding cakes are generally immaculately iced to perfection, Christmas cake looks far more tantalising when they look like they have made by a loving home cook. We love the undone look of these cakes, particularly the roughly piled summer fruits that make for easy and delicious toppings.
DECK THE TABLE
Add another level of special to the occasion by going all out with the table setting which will make any meal all the more exceptional. Create an interesting centrepiece by running lush greenery along the table and embellishing with fruit, flowers and candles. To make it even more festive, add extra tree decorations to your centrepiece or lay a bauble, bon bon or candy cane on each plate.
Christmas in Australia is all about laid back summer gatherings. The light and airy decor of the table setting above (featured in our latest DIY Magazine) perfectly embodies that. Australia's native fauna is celebrated in the beautiful centrepiece and is also used to inspire the rest of the decor. Gum leaf cookies and gum leaf place cards adorn the settings and the washed out red of the flowers is picked up in the napery. It's the picture of casual cheer, just like an Australian Christmas!
