Full Swing

I love to admire finer details and at this time of the year, with the festive spirit in full swing, I probably find the small things more impactual than the grander gestures.

Whether it be the tiny sequins formed upon your dress to create a pattern or the winter blooms upon your place settings, the best way to make a memorable experience for yourself and your guests this Christmas is to focus on the little stuff. I’m looking forward to making individual place settings for each of my family for Christmas and decking my halls with one off unique finds that I have picked up out and about.

I would love to hear your Christmas ideas this year!

Merry

I have been fighting the urge since mid-November to start the festive posts, and now that December has graced us with it’s presence I can now roll out the inspirations!

Here’s a little taster of the beauty that I’ve been collating over the past few months and more can be seen on our Festive Beauty Pinterest page.

Wishing you all a lovely week!

Wow Factor

I can’t resist a room that offers the ‘wow factor’ from the moment that you enter the room, and this collection of images definitely caught my eye! I think Christmas is the ideal opportunity to inject your personality and to add decoration that makes the month of December not just memorable, but special.

Whether you fire a touch of neon into your festive celebration with neon wrapped candles or adorn your tree with baubles of shocking hues, here is a little inspiration to get you in the colourful mood…

Table Style

There is nothing more satisfying than creating a well laid table for festive parties. When out walking, it’s easy to pick up inspiration for styling the perfect table, and vases of winter foliage dotted along the centre of the table or fallen branches can add instant glamour to the setting.

I love to tie ribbon to the stems of wine glasses and roll napkins up with brown string – all of these touches are inexpensive to achieve and can be used over again, what ever time of year.

Happy Thursday!

Pedal Stool

This has got to be the cutest christmas inspiration I’ve seen yet. Put your festive figurines up there with your silver tray by encasing them within glass cake stands and vintage bell jars…utter perfection, in my humble opinion!

Will you be putting your deer on a pedal stool?

Wrap Up

One of my favourite parts of Christmas is wrapping the presents. It’s a brilliant opportunity to go all out with your creative inspiration and give a gift that is not only beautifully presented, but also a touch hand crafted.

I’m a big fan of ribbons (I even have a ribbons drawer!) and think that recycling is ideal when it comes to gift wrapping. This year I plan on wrapping my presents in news print, using neon ribbon knotted in large bows and stitching my gift tags myself.

How will you wrap yours?

Jazz Up

It’s December! As it’s officially now the month to get festive (and not feel bad about doing so!), I thought I’d start the week with a little festive inspiration for your homes.

Whether you love to go overboard or keep things subtle, Christmas is the perfect time to ‘jazz up’ your home…

Starry Light

I this twinkling fairy lights are ideal for adding instant festivity to your home. You can go as subtle or over the top as you so wish, and can drape the string of glowing beauty over your mantlepieces, through bannisters…the choice is endless.
