A woven wreath of hellebores, amaryllis and seasonal foliage makes a lavish backdrop when placed over a fireplace against a plain white wall.

Arrange cuttings of red amaryllis and double hellebores with eucalyptus seeds and foliage from the garden.

Create an elegant yet informal dining room by combining natural striped linens with a striking floral centerpiece. Add twinkling tealights in brass dishes, pine cones and quirky pomegranate cutlery.

Prepare a plate of festive fruits, quince jam, cheeses, crusty breads and crackers on a craft board for guests to help themselves.

Gather foliage from your garden – from dried ferns and seed heads to teasel and ivy – and combine them to make festive arrangements or wreaths. Or you can use them to add a decorative signature to your wrapped gifts.

A slatted back chair serves as a handy side table in a room with limited space. For a thoughtful touch to welcome visitors, add a simple bouquet of flowers and a small gift.

Heavy velvet curtains, a thick rug, and an armchair draped in a cashmere throw provide a cozy nook where guests can enjoy coffee while opening presents.

Dress up a guest bedroom with natural linens, crisp white cotton pillows and colorful velvet cushions to complement a pretty floral wallpaper.

Make custom gift tags or parcel tags for a more personalized gift. Cut pieces of white cardboard and glue them onto flower shapes from gift wrap. Drill a hole in the center at the top and thread the string.

Match your packages to your festive color palette by wrapping them in leaf patterned papers.

Bring a sense of occasion to a hallway with some festive flourishes: a handmade paper star; a vase overflowing with hellebores; twigs strung with paper balls; and shiny bowls of jewel-like fruit.
