Around the fire is where it all happens over Christmas here. It is where we gather to exchange gifts; lift our champagne glasses to exchange best wishes; talk into the small hours with loved ones home for a few days; it is where we spend lazy afternoons with a book and a sleepy dog. The fire is simply essential.
I love dressing up the fireplace whatever time of year, and for the holidays it can really sparkle!
Here I used white renonculas, white broom (that smells divine), and some I’m-not-sure-what sprayed silver. A piece of florists foam sitting inside a silver tureen an assortment of candles and, as they say in French, “le tour est joué” – the deed is done.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my christmas flower ideas and that your home is looking festive too.
