Are you pondering if you should get a artificial Christmas tree, one from your grocery store or going on a trip out to the bush to collect the perfect tree which ends up being patchy and way to big for your living room? Next comes the decisions on what lights colour or no colour? The options are endless and it can be stressful.. we get it!

One thing you wont have to think about this year is how to seat your entire family at a table which sits 4. Skip the crammed dinners and get together at the Mirador this year for a one in a life time experience!
