When planning your décor, keep in mind to strike a balance between lighting and centre pieces. While lighting is mostly about making sure the ends of your fairy lights reach the switch board, creating centre pieces can take a little more time. Alternatively, you can create centre pieces out of fairy lights allowing a little show of light and shadow to bring the mood.

When doing your décor, you want to tap into all your senses which includes sights and smell. You need not turn your apartment in to a potpourri but then again scented candles around the apartment helps.

Placement of the pieces is also important. Make sure you have lighted piece in each room even if you do not drape the wall with light.
