We are in the dark days before Christmas, with real Dutch weather. A little bit of once or twice and mostly wind and rain. Time to create a ‘Christmassy’ restaurant! In September we always give an overview of what we have spotted in the previous Christmas period for inspiration. Below our colleague Max van Oeveren has made a list of small examples up to the great Christmas tree at Claridge’s Hotel in London and special Christmas decorations, as inspiration for hotels, restaurants, bars and of course for at home.

This is the last article on Horecatrends for this year. We wish you a warm, cozy holiday season and lots of inspiration and happiness in 2019. For those who have to work in the hospitality industry, we wish you many nice guests!
