You have finally moved into your new house and decided to have a house warming party. You invite your friends and they decided to bring you gifts to help you decorate your home. Some of the gifts they bring may require you to consult an interior designer because you have absolutely no idea what to do with the gifts. However, here at Gloob.in, we can help you get creative with some of the gifts that you receive.

Plants

Whether you receive real or artificial ones, you can make the best home décor with them. Live plants have the ability to add an aesthetical value to your home. They however require a lot of attention and care if you want them to stay fresh. If you receive artificial ones, then you may have just saved yourself a lot of trouble. These plants require less attention and most pets cope well with these plants. Some people believe that pets are less friendly with live plants.

Baskets

These items are ideal for setting up table centrepieces. They can be used to hold fresh fruits or flowers. If you receive baskets that have been woven with a variety of colors, they can be used as wall hangings. On the other hand, they can serve the purpose of being decorational as well as functional. They can be used to serve bread on the breakfast table. This way, they become both decorational and functional.

Paintings

Paintings can add value to your room depending on where you place them. They can highlight a wall or a certain place in the room such as the fireplace. They can also be used to accentuate the color of a wall. They can be creatively used to bring out the different aspects of a room. Some paintings look best when illuminated under natural light. Depending on the paintings that you have been given as a gift, you can use them creatively.

Flowers

These can be used creatively by using decorative flower vases and placing them as centrepieces. If they do not have a strong scent, they can be used at the dinner table. This is because strong scents may put off your guests and ruin their appetites. In other cases, the strong scents may overwhelm the aroma of your food. You should also be careful not to have flowers that are too tall as centerpieces because they can distract your guests from having a conversation. Besides, it would seem very uncomfortable to have a conversation with someone over dinner and they have to peer over the plant in order to see you.

Tablecloths

These can be used to decorate your kitchen table. If the cloth is plainly colored, you can throw in another cloth that has a bit of decoration on it so as to add a little bit of life into the cloth. In addition, you can have a tailor and have it embroidered with a variety of designs. This is also likely to add a little bit of ‘umph’ to your tablecloth and attractively decorate your kitchen table
