our christmas concept:

We wanted to create a table that wasn’t traditional ‘Christmas’, but had elements of the season. So we went for an over abundance of peonies {my faves which are only around at Christmas time}, pink Reindeers and a ‘glitter gold star’ theme.

We kept the peonies cut short, {so guests could see each other across the table}, and scattered them down the entire length of the table in different sized vases. We created ‘deconstructed bon-bons’ with super-cute crowns and star headbands, and little chocolate treats in the Uashmama bags, placed on everyone’s plate – the serviettes were tied with bakers twine and featured a little pink reindeer…and so we didn’t cover the amazing Mark Tuckey table, Mel made ‘placemats’ using an outline of glitter washi tape.

Finally, to get all the senses going, I placed gorgeous Maison Blanche ‘Australian Christmas’ and “Buttered Popcorn’ candles down the middle of the table – which smelt amazing!
