1. Interactive Fun: Encourage interactive fun with eco-friendly colouring placemats! Kids will adore these, and it's a fantastic way to engage their creativity & possibly get them sitting still for more than a few minutes!

2.Nature's Touch: Elevate the table with nature-inspired centrepieces like pinecones, evergreen branches (such as pine, spruce, fir, cedar, and cypress trees), or even some good old small potted plants. These elements will add eco-charm and festive hues to the setup.
3.Go Green with Style: Spruce up your decorations using recycled or upcycled items—like colourful glass jars filled with twinkling fairy lights, fun DIY paper ornaments from recycled materials, or playful fabric garlands repurposed for a festive touch.
