Colourful Christmas

Fancy something different on your Christmas tree this year? Here’s a few alternative themes, still in keeping with the Christmas spirit just adding hits of colour and fun with exquisitely detailed tree decorations. I love the “Swan Lake” inspired tree below, styled up with satin ballet slippers and a frothy pink tutu.

These are shots I styled for Wyevale Garden Centres using their fabulous selection of baubles, decorations and Christmas trees.

A Stylish White & Green Christmas

The countdown to Christmas has begun, so it’s time to set up your own show-stopping Christmas tree. Here are a few Christmas trees dressed with a selection of white, glass, silver and green decorations and baubles. I had great fun styling and setting up these shots for the Wyevale Garden Centre shoot, way back in May. We shot five different Christmas themes and below are some of my favourite shots from the day.

Do Christmas The White Company way.

When thinking of The White Company, words like elegant, stylish and chic springs to mind. Over the years they have stayed true to their style and yet every season they inspire us with even more beautiful items. I have yet still to meet the person that does not just love The White Company. Although that it’s true that I’m a self obsessed colour addict and would choose colour every time, I always find myself wondering into their stores and wishing my home could look like this. And who am I to say that grey, silver and white are not colours after all?

Below are their new items for Christmas, in store now but you have to be quick, everything is selling like hotcakes!
