Alex Polizzi's Christmas Fix

Seasonal special. Alex Polizzi imparts all her tips on making the home into the ideal Christmas space. She also meets people who make a living from creating a perfect Christmas.

Alex Polizzi, the queen of immaculate taste, has spent years preparing the perfect Christmas in her role as an hotelier. But in 2013 she's planning on creating the perfect Christmas in her own home and in doing so she imparts all her tips on how to transform your home into the most sumptuous, stylish, perfectly Christmas space imaginable.

As well as drawing on her own knowledge, in this one hour special, she also meets some of the people who make their living from creating a perfect Christmas year in year out. From the queen of present wrapping, Jane Means, who trains staff at many of Britain's top department stores, to Paul Dart, who creates the lighting designs for Christmas lights in many of the country's cities.

Learning display tips from window dressers and how to perfect the ultimate Christmas table from an events company employed by The Savoy and the Royal Courts of Justice, Alex takes viewers behind the scenes at some of Britain's most iconic institutions as they gear up for Christmas.

She solves common Christmas decorating problems - like how to light your tree and make presents look luxurious - and she shares the secrets of five-star Christmases, showing that with a mix of intelligent buying, and by reusing things you already own, this year your Christmas can be more stylish than ever.
