This morning Hirsch’s Springfield invited some special ladies to the store to have an intimate session with Michelle, from the Décor Store, and learn more about how to create some magical and stunning table settings for Christmas, and some ways to brighten the home up during the festive season.
Some tips Michelle gave included:
A dash of colour
You can use a base colour such as brown, then add colours, such as red.
Give your table a theme
Having a theme for your table makes it easy and fun to decorate. The choices are unlimited, and you can really go to town with a theme.
Will you be inside or outside, will it be during the day or an evening event. For outside tables, you can use a table runner instead of a whole table cloth, but you can also use a crisp white table cloth, which will be stunning with your display.
Lighten the mood
Candles make a big difference, they create a nice atmosphere. Be aware of using scented candles, as it can interfere with your senses.
Remember to keep it green
Greenery can come from your garden, so you don’t need to spend a fortune on flowers.
Recycle, reuse and re-purpose
When choosing decorations for the table, choose items that can easily be used in a different setting and function
The centre of Attention
You don’t want your centre pieces too big that guests cannot talk to each other. Mason jars work well down the centre, because you can decorate beautifully without blocking guests.
Take a seat
Chairs, it is nice to put something on to give a festive feel, people tend to forget about the dining chairs.
Thank you to Michelle for taking the time this morning, the ladies really enjoyed the session, and we received much positive feedback on all the events held within the store!
We aim to keep our customers happy.
