Christmas is round the nook and most of you would be preparing in a variety of ways. Kick off your holiday prep with our list of five essential tips that simplify the Christmas season and also add instant festive cheer.
1. Kitchen equipment
We’re beaten with the darling tools used for baking Christmas goodies to perfection. Few essential items include measuring cups, whisk, brush, sifter and a big sharp knife. Our best pick of kitchen accessories are the very handy mixing bowls that make hefty Christmas cooking so much easier.
2. Cake and cookie supplies
Gorgeous metallic and colourful moulds upgrade plain-Jane treats to foodgasmic goodies. While cake corers are serious game-changers, a clever changing from standard cupcakes is our winner, the Daisy floral mould. They make cake display so pretty and delightful!
3. Christmas Décor
We like to reuse everyday items for something more decorative. Mason jars! They are the biggest joy this season. Here are some quirky ways to get creative with them. Display as vases or tea light holders. Or fill them with foodie fragrances of cinnamon, oranges and fresh rosemary for an aromatic ambience. Or serve desserts and drinks in them or only ‘gift in a jar’. You’d agree these jars are trusty, inexpensive and fab activities to liven up the Christmas spirit!
4. Your own X’mas mantel
Votives/Red, green & gold candles & stands/photo frames – Make your mantels or tables Christmassy beautiful with glistening displays. Sparkle with gold candles, shimmering votives, lanterns and floral displays amongst a red, gold and green theme. Glittering candles get special attention!
5. Christmas bar-scape
Stock and decorate your bar carts with these essential products and see your party come to life. Cool bottles, coasters, party straws, tray, ice pail, drinks, decanter, lime wedges, juice and fizzy drink crates, ice crusher and fresh flowers. Glasses, clearly our heroes, start great conversations!
These beautiful objects delight us throughout the season. Happy prepping for Christmas.
