Having recently moved house and with everything all still a bit chaotic I wanted to pick one room in our new house that I could decorate for Christmas and could really go to town on. It is the first time we have a home that has a separate dining room, so I decided to make the most of it and decorate it for Christmas, it would also be the perfect place to host our little Christmas party.

I loved my homemade curtains I made in Laura Ashley fabric that used to hang in my old bedroom but thought they would look great in my new dining room to add a touch of glamour, so after giving the dining room walls a lick of fresh white paint, purchasing a new curtain pole from Laura Ashley we hung up our newly shortened curtains in the dining room. Now I could start thinking about decorating for Christmas…

The curtains have a lovely forest theme with birds and branches and the fabric is woven with lurex for a bit of sparkle, so inspired by our curtains I chose to go for a snowy white sparkly enchanted forest theme this Christmas in a colour palette of white, silver, cream, vintage dusky rose pink with a hint of gold.

When I saw the lovely Christmas tree candles and hanging bird cages in the Laura Ashley Christmas collection I thought they would be perfect to decorate my window with. I started by making pretty beaded garlands in my Christmas colour palette to hang the bird cages from and attached them to the top of the window frame with Command’s clear decorating clips which can easily be removed later.

Having placed the candles on the window sill and looking at the window from the inside and out I decided I needed to get some height on the candles so they would look just as good from the outside as in. I placed them on small white cake stands which gave them the height I needed and to add a pretty soft glow to the base of the trees I used the Laura Ashley mistletoe lights which I draped round the cake stands. To finish off the look and give it an even more snowy white look I attached snowflakes stickers to the window. I love how it turned out and it fits perfectly with my enchanted forest theme!
