THE SEASON TO COME TOGETHER

THE SEASON TO COME TOGETHER

Christmas is a time of joy, love, and togetherness. While many celebrate this special holiday indoors, there is a unique charm to celebrating Christmas in your garden. With seasonal decorations and romantic elements like an open fire, the garden can provide the perfect backdrop for creating memorable moments and fostering a deeper connection with the season.

Imagine entering a garden filled with sparkling lights, colorful decorations, and the scent of pine. Where the table is set and the smell and sound of a bonfire warms you and your guests for a Christmas celebration like never before. To plan a successful Christmas celebration, during the coldest season of the year, we have created short list with fun and useful ideas to make sure it will be a gathering to never forget.

 

Top 5 tips for a tailored outdoor culinary experience:

  1. Incorporate the best of winter produce into your menu, such as roasted root vegetables, Brussels sprouts, and hearty winter greens.
  2. Consider a festive barbecue with grilled sausages, kebabs, and vegetable skewers, offering a casual and interactive dining experience
  3. Start the meal with a comforting soup, like butternut squash or chestnut soup, served in cozy mugs to keep guests warm.
  4. End the meal with indulgent desserts such as warm apple crumble, spiced gingerbread, or a decadent Yule log cake, accompanied by freshly brewed coffee or hot cocoa.
  5. Offer warm, spiced drinks like mulled wine or apple cider, filling the air with aromatic scents and adding a cozy touch to the gathering.

 

Top 5 tips to ensure everyone stays warm!

  1. Offer cozy blankets and throws for guests to wrap themselves in. Place them in baskets or display them on chairs, allowing guests to grab one whenever they feel chilly.
  2. Set up an enclosed seating area, with products such as the Mirador 111 series pergola with pull down screens to give protection against the rain and drafts while creating a cozy environment
  3. Use warm-colored string lights, lanterns, or candles to create a cozy and intimate ambiance. The soft glow will not only add to the festive atmosphere but also give off a subtle warmth.
  4. Consider placing heat sources like heated lamps or heated seat cushions on chairs to provide additional warmth directly to guests.
  5. Consider the timing of your party. Plan it during the warmer parts of the day or early evening when temperatures are milder.

Celebrating Christmas in a garden is a special and magical experience. It lets us enjoy the beauty of nature, use natural elements in our decorations, have outdoor gatherings, and feel more connected to the season. Embracing the holiday spirit in a peaceful garden will be our recipe for creating lasting memories this year.
