If you’re but a pauper looking to create a “perfect” Christmas, one of even Royal proportions, where do you turn?

You could track down bachelor Prince Harry partying in Las Vegas, or make your way to the gates of Buckingham Palace.

Or you could simply pull out the latest edition of the Party Times newsletter and read the “10 Tips for a Perfect Family Christmas” offered by famous royal sister-in-law, Pippa Middleton.

While big sister Kate, the duchess of Cambridge, will be spending her first married Christmas at Sandringham with husband Prince William and the rest of the Royals, Middleton says she, and you, can have a perfect Christmas, too.

The No. 1 tip from Middleton, whose family’s “Party Pieces” online party supply company publishes the newsletter, is to make a good first impression, something she surely learned when she stole the show at Kate and William’s April wedding in a form-fitting bridesmaid dress.

After that, the royal-in-law’s suggestions range from the timeless – baking holiday cookies and creating a Scandinavian gingerbread house – to the modern,  doing your Christmas shopping online.

“Have guests met by a beautiful red berry wreath and windows decorated with silver snowflake cut-outs, reindeers and Christmas trees using snow spray,” she writes in the magazine. ”At this time of year everything seems to gleam, so fill your house with lots of tiny lights such as green Christmas fairy lights.”

Middleton’s offer of holiday cheer even leaves readers with two extra tips to give your holidays a “few special touches.”
