Christmas has come early

This week Christmas has come early.  Its August and I have been continuing with my styling but this time on a Christmas theme.  Its often the hottest time of year that I do the Christmas shoots for magazines which always feels a little daft.  Yet again I was in a London house and this was the wreath that I did for the door.

The house was in some beautiful greys and so I wanted to compliment it using eucalyptus as the greenery with some classic roses and the soft pinks and greens of hydrangea.  I really enjoy unusual wreaths and often like the use of vegetables or fruit in them.  Artichoke can often be a good choice as the purple and the spikey leaves can compliment the softness of the flowers.  Also pomegranate is a good idea as they are very much a Christmas fruit with a really lovely red colour and wonderful shape.

Be bold this Christmas and do something crazy.  Its a fun time of year so its nice to reflect this in your wreath.  Don’t be scared!

Look out for my styling and paintings in January’s issue of Homes and Garden (UK).

  1. Really beautiful, Alice. We have a lot of grey in our house. I must try something along these lines. Can you remind us about Jan edition of Homes and Garden.
