A wreath is a good start to your festive backdrop as you drink, eat and party the night away! Add some tinsel and other decorations to complete the festive look.

Light the way!

Encourage your guests to take a stroll into your backyard before the party begins by putting out enough lights. You can be creative with this – use lights of different styles to add effect by featuring different parts of your garden.You can also use special lights to attract mossies and other insects away from your patio area.

Things are looking up

Hang candlelit lanterns. This can create a magical atmosphere, just perfect for the holiday season. You can also hang lightweight ornaments to create the perfect mood – just make sure your lanterns is strong enough to carry your ornament plus high enough to be out of the way. Use citronella candles as a mossie deterrent.

Flower decoration
