A magical Christmas at home
A fairytale Christmas is all about sparkling decorations and spicy scents. Find out how to create a luminous decoration filled with stars and bluish tones for your tree and table, which will radiate a warm, fairytale glow in the winter darkness.
Decorating your tree for a magical Christmas
Choosing the right tree decoration is a crucial step in creating a magical atmosphere in your home.
What colours should you choose for a magical Christmas tree?
Choose a gold and blue decoration to bring a burst of light into your home and create a magical atmosphere.
What decorations can I use to give my Christmas tree a magical feel?
You can also add glitter to give the impression of sparkling snow, adding a touch of enchantment to every corner of the room. Finally, with a shiny star at the top, your tree will illuminate the room with a celestial glow.
A carefully chosen Christmas decoration will immerse your loved ones and guests in a magical atmosphere.
For a magical Christmas, choose table decorations that reflect this mood to create an enchanting atmosphere.
Place a magnificent floral arrangement and candles in the centre of the table, for example. These can be placed among fir branches to create a soft, magical glow.
To create a magical Christmas table, add a few touches of gold to evoke the magic of the season and a touch of warmth.
When it comes to table linen, a deep blue tablecloth will evoke the starry skies of a wintry night for your guests. What’s more, this soothing colour will create a calm atmosphere at this festive time of year.
It’s also the perfect setting for the enchanting aroma of spice-based dishes that will awaken your guests’ senses. The result of decorating your table will create a truly enchanted atmosphere.
Our menu ideas for a magical Christmas
The Christmas festivities are the perfect time to create magical dishes with the flavours of Christmas spices. Meat glazed with spices, pan-fried scallops or, for a vegetarian dish, courgettes stuffed with spiced mushrooms and butternut fries are particularly evoking .
For dessert, try a homemade gingerbread, flavoured with a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Serve it in slices or in a festive shape using cookie cutters, to create gingerbread stars for example.
If you want to decorate your sweets with icing or edible sprinkles, opt for Christmas spice biscuits: cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
These spices are the heart of your menu, as you can use them in all your dishes, sweet or savoury.
To accompany these sweet treats with a hot drink, the Chaï latte is the ideal beverage for tea lovers. Made with black tea and spices, this gourmet alternative is easy to prepare at home.
For a caffeine-fuelled recipe, a Pumpkin spice latte will put you in the Christmas mood with its pumpkin syrup and spices.
How do you make a gingerbread latte, the magical Christmas recipe?
The gingerbread latte is a soothing hot drink. Made with coffee beans, vanilla, milk and ginger, it will add a spicy flavour to your festive celebrations.
