Complete your entertainers dream with; Fiddle leaf figs, Mother-in-law’s tongue, Boston Ferns, Bamboo Plams and old favourites like Peace Lilly’s. If you’re after something a little different but still exceptional go for a creeper like devils ivy.

Outdoor Furniture

Having enough seats for everyone is a must for any entertainer. Likewise, avoid using unreliable and dated furniture this festive season. Having places for your guests to lounge and take in the breeze while being in your home will make any occasion memorable as well providing a great retreat for anyone looking to escape the buzz.

Get Cleaning

This one undoubtedly a no-brainer. In nutshell remove clutter, give everything a good wipe down and make sure your bathrooms are clean. Bonus points for grabbing an extra rubbish bin to help with that extra load.
