Of Amara’s four Christmas trends for 2017, none is more opulent than Midnight Jewel. The ultimate sophisticated Christmas party look, Midnight Jewel exudes glamour at every turn and is an excellent choice for those looking to dine in style over the festive season. Fabulously regal, yet effortlessly stylish, Midnight Jewel offers rich tones and gleaming metallics to transform interiors into luxury wonderlands. The LuxPad takes a closer look at the trend for some glamorous Christmas party inspiration…
Dine with Decadence
Midnight Jewel’s selection of tableware serves as the perfect glamorous Christmas party inspiration to create a sparkling festive feast. Every Christmas party in the home can benefit from a sophisticated injection of the trend’s colors inspired by the hues of peacock feathers, emeralds and sapphires in rich petrol blues, deep greens with hints of purple and magenta. If you are looking to host an opulent cocktail party over the Christmas period rather than a sit down affair, invest in serveware to display canapés and light snacks as opposed to formal place settings. The key to a cocktail party is of course the cocktails, so serve yours in style with dedicated glassware for the occasion and the Midnight Jewel trend also includes gem encrusted glass charms and unique stirrers for guests to easily locate their glass throughout the night.
For more formal gatherings or even the big day itself, more time should be spent perfecting the table as it is where guests will be spending the most time at the party. Getting the basics right will go a long way to creating a luxury table setting. Tableware can be layered to form a sophisticated look including charger plates and dinner plates with bowls placed on top. These can either be used for the first course or swapped with a smaller plate upon serving. A table runner forms a focal point for any dining table, drawing guests eyes to the center where you can place striking decorative displays. Table decorations can range from simple candle holders glowing with tealights or pillar candles, to ornate ornaments and floral arrangements.
For Christmas, table presents are certain to delight your guests and what better gifts for your dinner party attendees than an ornament for them to add to their own festive interior collection? The Midnight Jewel collection has a vast array of indulgent decorations for your Christmas tree which make for fantastic table gifts and they will also help to infuse the trend onto your table.
Set the Tone With Opulent Decorations
The Midnight Jewel Christmas decorations are the ultimate in ornate festive design. Shimmering gold sits effortlessly with rich jewel-like colors perfect for creating a sparkling Christmas tree look this year. Winged creatures from peacocks and hummingbirds to bees and dragonflies take center stage when they are perfectly interspersed throughout the tree. The classic bauble has been made even more decadent too with Art Deco inspired patterns embellished with glitter, sequins and gems.
Ornaments, garlands and wreaths are other fabulous ways to incorporate any festive scheme into the home which helps tie the tree in with the rest of your decor. Whether suspended from doorways, intertwined with banisters or placed on a coffee table, these additional accessories will infuse a Christmas feel in other areas of the home. The Midnight Jewel trend also includes a selection of faux flowers and stems to update any floral displays around the home with a festive touch.
Final Finishing Touches
As with any Christmas look, Midnight Jewel can be subtly incorporated throughout your existing decor to really bring your home to life this season. A selection of glittering jewel and sequin embellished cushions will add festive flare to beds or sofas, whilst no mantelpiece is quite complete at this time of year without stockings in soft velvets and metallic embroidery. Velvets and silks are excellent materials to accompany the Midnight Jewel trend as their indulgent textures and rich colors sit beautifully alongside the decorations, and can be utilized through cushions, throws and even bed linen to tie the entire look together throughout the home.
