A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WE HAD THE AMAZING OPPORTUNITY

TO COLLABORATE WITH MARK TUCKEY FURNITURE TO CREATE OUR PERFECT CHRISTMAS DAY TABLE SETTING…  we loved it so much, we wanted to share it with you again… here’s what we did + how you can recreate it

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!
