Don’t be a flamin’ galah this festive season … embrace Australiana!
Tired of singing, “Let it snow”, while wearing a summer singlet? Warm woollen sweaters and cozy cups of eggnog may look magical on movie screens, but for down under dwellers, the climate dictates a different kinda Christmas!
1. Select a summer colour scheme
Celebrate with a shrimp on the barbie and a festive colour scheme that sings of an Australian summer this Christmas. Swap traditional red and green for bright bursts of coral, aqua and lemon yellow - pretty pastel tones plucked straight from our sand and surf.
For Aussie fauna fans, find inspiration this Christmas in our furry and feathered friends. From silvery snow white and gorgeous grey marle made famous by koalas and cormorants to marigold, cream and peach taken straight from our pelicans and parrots, design a Christmas colour scheme that’s demure or daring!
2. Create a true-blue table
Our appetite for Australiana is insatiable at the moment, with adorable Aussie décor like this popping up all over the shop. With Christmas memories made over meals, ensure you table setting is a feast for the eyes alongside your mouth-watering tucker with beautiful bonbons, plates and platters inspired by Australian pets and plants.
3. Embrace a ridgy-didge tree
From a colour scheme inspired by Aussie fauna, to a Christmas tree rooted in indigenous flora! Forget Canadian forest pines, American fir trees and foreign poinsettias this Chrissie - opt for an Australian natives installation straight from our own backyard.
The resplendent star of our recent LENZO lunch, bask in the beauty eucalyptus branches with a tree made from foraged foliage this festive season. Complemented by beautiful bottle brushes and banksias on your tabletops and bars, why not give gumnuts on a potted gumtree a go!
4. Go for green and gold gifts
Celebrate Australia this Christmas with gifts inspired by, or made in, our great southern land. Support local this Christmas and complement Santa’s presents under the tree with Australiana gifts or locally made treasures.
5. Keep the kids in mind
Before guests arrive, gather the teenie troupes to help dress their own Christmas tree in pretty pastel proteas and delightful Aussie décor. Fit for a dashing dingo, complete the super cute composition with dining table dripping in Australiana baubles and Christmas crackers to keep them occupied mid-meal.
With the end of year just around the corner, let LENZO take party planning off your Christmas list! Get in touch to have us help you host a fair dinkum Aussie do, or shop all things Australiana from the comfort of your couch on The (merry) LENZO Marketplace.
Until next event,
AMP UP THE AUSSIE AT CHRISTMAS WITH LENZO!
