How to host a fun and fabulous Christmas Lunch

The festive season is traditionally a special time for catching up with friends and family. And with so much of 2020 spent physically distant, this year it feels more more magical than ever. With this in mind, we've decided to share our tips on how to host a fun and fabulous Christmas Lunch.

THE TABLE

A Christmas themed table can be easy to create. Choose a classic silver, white and natural palette to let the vibrant colours of the food and drinks shine.
Add ambience and interest with beautiful floral arrangements, candles and napkins wrapped with a Christmas branch, cinnamon stick and twine.

THE DRESS CODE

Keep it stylish but relaxed so your guests feel cool and comfortable all afternoon long. Linen is perfect for wear during the Australian Summer with its all natural, self regulating qualities. The Circlyn and Pocket Dresses and Linen Cami and Wide Leg Pants are fabulous Christmas lunch looks.

THE FOOD

Light and local produce will be a hit with your guests. Combine fresh vegetables and grains for a delicious salad. Glasses of sparkling water with lemon will ensure guests stay hydrated.

THE FINER DETAILS

Surprise your guests with fun elements such as a disco ball hanging in the space and interesting vignettes as conversation starters. Spray a dried palm leaf with Dulux Dura Max  in silver for a different take on traditional Christmas Decorations.

Be sure to utilise your outdoor space. Add cushions and throws to seating for extra comfort and style. Post lunch cocktails in the sunshine will have everyone smiling.
