I am back today to share with you lots of images from some recent shoot I put together for Fete Press Magazine all about my Christmas table.
It has been fun putting together this years Christmas for my family and seeing as I had to prepare for this shoot back in October it has been on my mind for some time! I also was able to share these ideas at the recent Working Mums Masterclass Presentation where I spoke about My Christmas.
You will know from my inspiration board a few weeks ago that I am using gold and pink this year. Pink always seems to creep into my decorating somewhere and Christmas is no exception. I am not one for the traditional green and red Christmas so I generally have pink with another colour.
I have used a natural coloured cloth here with my traditional white crockery and then added my colour in the decorations. The fabulous pom pom and bunting decorations are by Samantha from Dunne with Style.
The decorations look wonderful on the tree, on top of your cake or attached to the wall. I have also used the pom poms as a feature on my cutlery.
The pretty pink hobnail cups were also a great way to bring my colour in on this table.With my sweet tooth a cake and some other desserts are always going to take centre stage on my table and this stunning cake was made by Dewi from Sweet Bloom Cakes – a delicious three tier Neapolitan cake that tasted as good as it looked!
Flowers are such a beautiful touch on any table – the arrangements were made by Rebecca from Petal and Pod who always does such stunning work. I do like flowers in white vessels so that you don’t see the water and the footed bowls I have used here are perfect for this sort of thing.I wanted something different to add to the place settings so I used these great reindeer and star tags as decoration and added a fluro pink luggage tag to add my guests names. The Reindeer and Star tags also can be written on so they work well for place settings as well. They also can double as a great take home gift for your guests.
I hope you have enjoyed a sneak peak at what will be happening at our house for Christmas this year.
