Getting your home ready for the festive season
As party season fast approaches this year, some of us will be looking at different ways to create the perfect entertaining space to host the end of year festivities in style. Whether you are a first- time buyer celebrating your first Christmas in your apartment or a large family finally catching up with the extended family, here are some ideas to make your existing space the perfect holiday abode.
Hosting your first Christmas Dinner at The Gade, Hemel Hempstead
The one- and two-bedroom apartments at The Gade are spacious and ingeniously designed to maximise space with an open- plan layout to ensure that your friends and family can enjoy your first Christmas dinner with you in your new home. The integrated kitchen appliances make cooking the Christmas roast easier while the open plan dining space is the perfect lounging space post-dinner.
To maximise the space for your festivities, consider changing the layout of your kitchen/living room to place the dining table closer to the kitchen which will give you more space to relax and entertain afterwards. You could also consider opening your balcony doors and adding some outdoor heaters to your balcony to continue the party outside for post dinner pudding.
Going all out at The Villas, Cambridge
If you are planning to enjoy the company of your extended family this year, then The Villas at Knights Park is the ideal setting for a big Christmas bash. The spacious open plan kitchen, with French doors overlooking the private gardens, is the perfect social space to cook and entertain at the same time.
Consider allocating separate dining spaces for the adults and children to ensure a positive atmosphere where everyone can have a good time. A few party favours including party crackers and personalised colouring books will go down a treat with the children. The spacious homes, which also includes five bedrooms over three floors with additional family and living rooms, provides plenty of space for all the family to stay over and enjoy the whole holidays together.
Rooftop entertaining at Fish Island Village, Hackney Wick
If you are looking to do party entertaining differently this year, then the rooftop gardens at Fish Island Village might just be the unique setting for a truly special Christmas this year.
Available to all the residents, the spacious rooftop gardens can be decked up to your desired décor to offer your guests and families a special experience. Consider creating an ambience with candles and fairy lights to highlight the canalside London views. There are plenty of local businesses in the area to consider ordering your Christmas party meal if you are going for a maintenance free holiday this year.
