The Best Luxury Christmas Finishing Touches

Published on December 16, 2021 by Rebecca Hinshelwood

With Christmas around the corner, the number of things to think about may seem endless. Eventually, though, you arrive at the finishing touches. Those little extras that elevate the celebration from sleigh ride to winter wonderland. If there ever was a time of year to make that extra luxury effort, it’s now. So what are the best luxury Christmas finishing touches that will make the difference for your season this year? 


Whether you’re a keen festive decorator who cracks open the decs in November, or you prefer to save it to Christmas Eve, a touch of luxury in your decor goes a long way. 


White pillar candles are always festive, and create a wonderfully opulent atmospheric lighting. They’re a simple and classic finishing touch for Christmas.


Bring the outdoors in with some fresh greenery. From festive branches and garlands to potted poinsettia, keep it simple and your arboreal finishing touch will give you a fresh and comforting ambience. 


Spices and citrus are the background scents that will make either your home or a luxury serviced apartment feel truly festive. A clove studded orange or cinnamon stick are easy and natural ways to build the atmosphere.


Choose the pick of London restaurants for your festive luxury dining. If you’re staying in a luxury serviced apartment in any location across the city, you’ll be within a stone’s throw from delectable dining. 


Céleste at The Lanesborough 

As well as the “Festive Menu du Jour” and “Peggy Porschen Festive Afternoon Tea” Céleste are hosting grand New Years events. Even just a visit for Christmas cocktails will make the most of the festive indulgence that is on display here.


Launceston Place 

The festive tasting menu at Launceston Place features turbot and venison. With its commitments to seasonality and sustainability, you can be sure of the freshest dining experience. A hidden gem of Kensington.


Berners Tavern

The ambience at Berners Tavern is ideally placed for Christmas, as it’s historic, opulent and glamorous. Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton has constructed a one off Christmas menu that is seasonal and a surprise!


Hosting a festive reception is the perfect occasion for an extra dash of luxury. Done well, both you and your guests will enjoy the relaxation and festive joy of adding finishing touches to your entertaining.

Chef Service

Call on a luxury chef service to minimise workload and maximise social time. There’s no more private luxury dining space than within your serviced apartment, so make the most of service this Christmas. 


Keep themes understated but consistent. Drinks should be decanted, and lighting warm. For events at a luxury serviced apartment, make the most of the fully equipped luxury kitchen and dining spaces.


Construct the perfect festive soundtrack of classics that will reflect the mood of your event. For stylishly retro soirées, look back a Century for some 1920’s and 30’s vintage glamour. 


Choose some select events to keep the Christmas spirit running high. London is a beautiful city at this time of year, with plenty of festive luxury in its offering.

Ice skating

You simply can’t beat going ice skating in the salubrious surroundings of Somerset House. Enjoy the chill and return to the warm comfort of your luxury serviced apartment.


For fans of a classic, Matthew Warchus’ acclaimed production of A Christmas Carol is playing at the Old Vic. While those who prefer a modern twist should try Matthew Bourne’s vibrant Nutcracker at Sadlers Wells.


From last minute gifts to a little extra for yourself, or just to soak up the atmosphere, visit Covent Garden’s Christmas Village. Easily accessed from luxury serviced apartments in any area, this will top off your perfect Christmas.


The most festive treat of all is one of comfort, especially when it’s cold outside! So if your festive season needs to be topped off with some true comfort and relaxation, there’s no better finishing touch than a luxury serviced apartment.
