Here at outré creative we follow four golden rules for unfailingly effective decorating.
- A Friday 4pm finish. Decorating must be awarded a respectful hour and a half of attention.
- Mariah Carey at full blast. Love her or hate her, she is undeniably the reigning queen this time of year.
- Reserve a minimum of twenty minutes to untangle the fairy lights. It doesn’t matter how neatly you coiled them up last January, they’re guaranteed to be a knotted ball of despair at the end of the year.
- Now, many people profess to possess this talent in interviews and sporting events, but never is it so important as when you need to distribute decorations evenly around the tree. At this time it’s critical that each angle is covered by some one you trust, who will be honest and tell you that there’s way too much gold on one side or a sparse and neglected area.
On that note, I’ll bid you farewell and wonderful weekend ahead. It’s feeling like a mulled wine kind of Friday isn’t it?
