Christmas dinner is one of the most important meals of the year. 

Everybody gathers together, enjoy the dinner and communication with each other.

 How would you decorate your table for Christmas?

There is plenty of ideas: hundreds of shades of colors, patterns, centrepieces and various tableware.

Make it traditional – red and white or brown, enjoy something fresh and modern – rose, light blue, green.  

don’t forget of gold and silver – these are regal colors! 

Take beautiful and holiday tableware – with stamping, patterns and of different colors and with Christmas inscriptions.

Add some colors, fruit and pine-cones on the plates to decorate them and the napkins.

Put a corresponding centerpiece onto the table and enjoy your holiday dinner!

When decorating for the holiday season many people remember to decorate the yard, the Christmas tree and the mantle

You want your family and dinner guests to be transformed into the holiday season mood immediately upon entering the dining room.

Decorating the table for the Christmas dinner is a great way to make the day even more memorable

Tanzania’s Pemba Island has become the first in Africa to put up an underwater hotel room. An investor in Pemba Island is taking offering Swedish-designed leisure beneath the sea in a bid to cash in more millions from the rich.
Manta Resort has opened a plush hotel room beneath the Indian Ocean. At the cost of $900 (Tshs. 1,485,000) per night, you can share your world with sea creatures including fish.
Manta, which operates a 16 bed-room resort, hopes to cash in undersea tourism, which is relatively new in Africa. The facility has already become an important attraction to tourists, especially divers.
Designed by Genberg Underwater Hotels, the three-storey structure is built using building materials that allow it to float. Located about 250 meters offshore, the room is submerged 13 feet below sea level. The room also has plenty of windows to allow guests watch fish and other sea creatures swim by. Above the water, two additional floors provide an airier atmosphere, including a terrace perfect for sunbathing by day and stargazing by night
The bathroom and a lounge area are at sea level. At night, spotlights under the windows attract and illuminate squid and octopus -- a more reclusive crowd than the daytime sea life. The entire hotel can also be raised above the water in event of an evacuation or for repairs,  it can be towed somewhere else.
The management was quoted saying six people have already slept in the room since it was opened on November 1. Manta opened its doors in August 2008 with 16 rooms. The underwater room makes these 17. Pemba is renowned for being a great diving spot with a plethora of sea life to be found.

The Marks & Spencer Christmas 2013 ad  brings Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who also designed the successful “Autograph” lingerie line for the retailer, British actress Helena Bonham Carter and male model David Gandy into the spotlight. The new campaign is focused around a fairytale theme, encouraging viewers to "Believe in Magic & Sparkle".

According to Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, M&S' executive director, “the advertising is a modern epic where fashion meets fantasy – bringing to life much loved fairy tales with more than a sprinkle of high glamour”. The new ads are meant to be a change in the label's strategy, as the retailer's profits have continued falling for the ninth quarter in a row despite recent high profile campaigns.

The label hopes to engage a younger audience by taking the campaign online and asking fans to choose the name of the adorable dog Rosie Huntington-Whiteley chases in the new ads, by choosing either the name “Magic” or “Sparkle”. “It's all about interaction and a conversation with our customers. Digital is the fastest way to be in that conversation and you are going to see us doing more of that,” Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne stated.

Marks & Spencer ads seem centered around the renowned British model, since her fast-paced adventures set the tone, the new campaign cleverly targets different types of customers, emphasizing the idea that anyone can find something worthwhile in the label's stores. 

The complex new ads highlight a great variety of products from the brand, from accessories like handbags to food by making a seamless transition between the different options presented.
