Christmas Styling Tips from Victoria Whitelaw
Christmas Day is upon us but there is still time to infuse your home with impeccable festive style. Today we provide you with a few tips to take your holiday season home styling to the next level.
Traditional & Classic
This year we are loving a traditionally styled Christmas, whether that be shimmering gold, silver and glass, or combined with a pop of classic red. Keeping your Christmas décor neutral means that you can easily add a touch of colour to change your theme in years to come. Mix a variety of finishes and textures for added depth and warmth.
This year we are stocking the most stunning phalaenopsis orchid blooms which are hand-dyed a vibrant shade of red. These beautiful blooms add a hint of luxe to your fresh Christmas arrangements. Gorgeous potted poinsettia plants in velvety red or white are the ultimate in traditional Christmas style and they look superb abundantly potted en masse at your front door.
It’s no secret that here at Victoria Whitelaw we adore the warm glow of candlelight. No event is complete without masses of flickering candles instantly setting the mood for a cosy atmosphere, and Christmas time is no different. Group clusters of chunky pillar candles of varying sizes down the length of your banquet table and burn a delicious and inviting festive scented candle at the entrance to your home. Tuck warm twinkling fairy lights into the branches of your fresh or faux tree with Christmas giving you the perfect excuse to have them lit all hours of the day and night.
Don’t stop at just an immaculately decorated tree this year. Continue the theme throughout your home with a bespoke door wreath and stunning garland on your mantle designed to perfectly complement your chosen theme. Have your door wreath styled with baubles to match your tree and complete with beautiful scented cinnamon sticks and dried orange slices.
Christmas is a time for giving and wrapping gifts for special family and friends is always a pleasure. Of course, your beautifully wrapped gifts should always match each other and complement your holiday season home styling. Try a beautiful textured paper with wide grosgrain ribbon simply but effectively finished with a cluster of fresh spruce and a wooden gift tag.
Continue the festive theme to your dining table for an impeccably styled feast that your guests will always remember. A favourite design of ours which is sure to impress is a stunning thick garland of luscious foliage and fresh blooms styled down the length of the table and cascading over each end on to the floor. A simple way to enhance your table styling is to finish each place setting with a festive napkin dressing designed to match your fresh table arrangement, such as a cluster of cinnamon sticks combined with a sprig of holly and tied off with a gold ribbon and name tag.
We would love to see you down at our store which has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland with all the trimmings. We can help you select a gorgeous gift, install a full-size fresh pine tree in your home or take care of your complete festive home styling this holiday season.
