Keep children entertained with Christmas Eve bakingEveryone knows Christmas cookies fresh out of the oven are the ultimate indulgence, and they will make your home smell delicious. If you’re planning to bake on the 24th, get your baking ingredients and equipment organised in advance. Ensure you have enough flour, sugar, sprinkles, decoration, yeast, baking powder and anything else you may need stored in an easily manageable system.Colour-coding and labels are particularly useful (and fun) if you’re going to have lots of little helpers in the kitchen.

A pendant light, whether lit by a bulb or candle, is a wonderful way to change your room style and add a festive touch to your lighting without having candles on the table. If you have a pendant light over your table, consider swapping the shade to something festive over the holidays, or hang lanterns for a similar effect.TELL US…Do you have a favourite tradition when it comes to your Christmas table setting?

Highlight the boldRed isn’t the easiest colour to live with in a kitchen, but at Christmas, it’s surely a must-have. So if you’ve gone for a plain scheme but splashed colour on a kitchen island, now’s the time to really play it up. That means choosing everything from crackers to candles in a matching hue. Use foliage – whether real or fake – to take it down a notch, add a touch of gold, and you’ve got the perfect Christmas room.
