It’s no news to you all that I really love the whimsical Christmas colours of red, white and lime green as I have used it for so many years, both in my own home and in the store. So it’s no surprise we have given this favourite colour combination a revamp for 2020 with a theme simply called – Whimsical.
Whimsical is all about cheeky elf fun.
Our tree and garland always begin by lighting them. We added balls, finials and candy canes all representing this fun colour combination to our tree. Then we built up the larger pieces like drums, playful posable elves, red & white Poinsettia flower picks and finished with a bigger elf as the topper.
I love that you can move away from the traditional decor with a fun theme like Whimsical and have no real rules to what you add to the tree. The use of oversized items, that are usually table top decor pieces creates such a sense of the story you are trying to tell, so the elves are easily tied into the back of the branches with pipe cleaners.
We lit the mantle garland using multi coloured battery lights which enabled the white shatterproof baubles to glow in the light reflected for a completely new look for night time and to finish, our whimsical table setting brings all of the elves elements with candy cane decorations as the table settings and finished with our designer Patience Brewster cake stand and lid to hold delicious Christmas treats to share.
So festive and so much fun.
