Living in the southern hemisphere and being able to celebrate Christmas in the summer opens up so many opportunities when it comes to entertaining. Outdoor functions are not only considered but also encouraged. With long sunny days and clear blue skies who wouldn't want to be outside with family and friends enjoying the festive season.
Event styling for large groups can be a little daunting to begin with.

Thankfully there are companies that can be hired to help out with most of these things. Jump onto the Internet and see what's available in your area and don't be afraid to outsource where possible.
When it comes to picking your theme, its good to look around at your environment and bring in pieces to compliment it. For example, if your venue is near the beach, consider colour choices like blues and whites for linen and furniture and add in splashes on colour with bentwood cushions to give off that Hampton's vibe.Covered Linen hire has some great carousel strip cushions and matching table runners that would add to these feel perfectly.
Having the option of cushion hire is great. Companies have warehouses filled with rows and rows of cushions. So whatever colour, shape, size or quantity you are after, you are sure to be able to find it. Best of all, being able to rent linen means It will be delivered and picked up right from your doorstep.
