My Christmas decorating style is pretty simple. I’ve plan to overdose on fairy lights and scattered t-light candles everywhere. I also love to decorate with mossy branches, ferns, foliage, mistletoe, berries and wreaths. It’s all very natural and woodsy.
As you know, Gem oversees all of our faux botanicals and makes the most stunning wreaths – I love mine so much I actually keep it above the fireplace all year round. My Christmas wreath I usualy update with copper string lights for Christmas, but it’s definitely not going anywhere come January!
THE BUILD UP
I love how festive London looks for the season – it’s constantly inspiring. It conjures up a truly magical Dickensian Christmas, and nowhere more so than the food markets. I adore visiting Borough market in the week leading up to Christmas, and queuing outside Neal’s Yard, The Ginger Pig and Monmouth. The market food shopping is my absolute most favourite thing to do – it feels so festive and abundant. It's always quite fun to add a splash of colour to the day to. Check out the Hemsworth bouquet below...
I prefer something jazzy to most Christmas tunes if I’m honest. I’m famous in the office for being a bit of a Christmas music-phobe (they’ve been playing xmas tunes upstairs all month!) but I stick with my favourite French radio FIP for most of the season.
I am such a foodie. I love pottering around the kitchen at the best of time, but at Christmas I spend even longer. I love trying out new recipes and this year I am all about Nicolas Vahe.
