Even if it might be the dream of many to have a white Christmas, there are some great advantages to celebrate the holiday season in Mauritius. Warmer temperatures, longer days and stunning sunsets, now is the perfect time to create a great outdoor area, fire up the grill, and chillax with family and friends. Do you know any better way to celebrate? So, let”™s bring the party outside! Here are some tips on how to dress up your outdoors for the season and make it ultra welcoming for your special guests.
Please have a seat!
First things first: you need a beautiful table for all your celebration spread. A rectangular table is better when you are hosting big family gatherings as it can welcome more people. Choose simplicity as it will always look elegant. For a dinner alfresco, this gorgeous table made of teak is just perfect and can be complemented by different styles of chairs. You can easily decorate it by adding greenery and coloured candles for a festive centrepiece.
Set up the sceneÂ
If you have a veranda, well make it the most beautiful space of your home, as the weather is not cooling down, and being inside is more refreshing than hosting indoors. Make sure you have an adequate number of seating options available for those who want to kick back and relax. Then, what about the decor? Add style and colour with a few hand-picked vases, which you can leave empty, or filled with beautiful flowers. You can either choose vases with colours that match your lounge or completely different, for an eclectic style that will attract the eye.Â
Dress up the walls
A stylish round mirror or even two or three next to other will look stunning and will dress up your wall wonderfully. Also, mirrors make the space look more spacious, reflect the light and multiply everything, making your party even bigger!Â
Make it cool
A beautiful water feature such as fountain is a great addition to your outdoors. The soft sound of water has the most calming and refreshing effect in this hot weather and will transform your place into an oasis. Stone fountains have a very zen feel about them and provide an instant feeling of relaxation. From simple linear forms to curves or Buddha faces, you will find the one of your dreams.Â
Let it be light!
Let beautiful lighting lead your guests down the garden path this season. Design and style go hand-in-hand with these beautiful lamps, that can be placed anywhere. Light is primordial to set up the mood and these beauties will create a very intimate atmosphere. Use floor lamps to envelop dull corners of your terrace or garden in a cosy bubble of light. Don”™t forget about candles, which make magic happen everywhere they are placed. Choose stylish candle holders that will stand out and complement your festive decor.
