From the Archives - A Vintage Inspired Christmas

A little backward glance again to the Christmas 2011  issue of Heart Home mag. Joanna Thornhill, stylist extraordinaire and a regular contributor of the magazine, created a wonderful vintage wonderland for us. This pretty display of baubles is a great idea for those of us that don't have quite enough room for an actual tree. She used a selection of flat decorations and removable 3M Command strips so that no marks were left on the wall. Perfect for renters too.

Never one to stay with the conventional, Joanna then encouraged us to play with scale with our presents and to wrap them in ribbon. The only trouble is, they are far too lovely to unwrap!

She then added a little wonderland to the tea-table. Apples were adorned with glitter and little ceramic animals were used instead of placecard holders.

As ever, this is a theme that will stand the test of time.
