We built Tyde London around creating the most memorable experiences whether home or away. Not only uncovering hidden destinations, but also giving you the unique products to create 'wow' moments. So this Christmas our founder Clare, shares some of her tips to create the perfect setting for your guests and put a little 'wow' on their faces!


 1. The Table


2. Bring Fallen Nature In

Make a showstopper hanging centre piece for any table or room, rejuvenating fallen branches. Clean and dry them out, before hanging with string from hooks to suspend. 

Decorate with baubles and fairy lights to give some atmospheric sparkle!


3. The Festive Cocktail

We love a festive cocktail to start the afternoon in style! Try our favourite Mistletoe Martini, or if cocktails aren't for you, then just as effective are the simple ice cubes full of festive flavour - freeze pomegranate, cranberries and rosemary and add to a glass of fizz or your spirts for a subtle twist.



4. Canape Surprise

After a brisk winter walk, when the mulled wine is warming, serve some stress-free cold appetizers as a culinary surprise. These are low prep so you can make ahead of the day, or prepare while mingling with your guests in the kitchen. They're too delicious not to pull out!

  • Bree & Cranberry Crostini 
  • Melon, Prosciutto Ham, Mozzarella and Basil Sticks
  • Orange & Chocolate Delights with coconut, pistachio or walnut.



5. Thoughtful Wrapping

Make wrapping more thoughtful - use left over fabrics and a bit of nature to dress your parcel, or use recycled paper and sketch your own personalised designs! Recycling old newspapers give some character whilst being mindful of the environment - and don't forget your host gifts...dress up a simple bottle of wine with some foliage and gift tag tied in string, its so effective and stress-free!



6. Stocking Fillers Full Of Love

From hand-painted puzzles from our unique brands, to the softest cashmere and  jewellery made by artisans in Tanzania and Peru - Give a gift with a beautiful story behind it from Tyde London...




Now its about YOU...
