It's made a real feature of our dining table too as it's now a divider between the lounge and the conservatory (as well as the sliding doors). I like filling the table with candles, flowers, pictures and other things to bring cheer to the room. Of course in a few weeks this will be full of more candles, wooden reindeer, glass bottles with holly sprigs in and other Christmass-y treats! Decorating the house and getting a tree is one of my favourite things to do in the Christmas period, it's so much fun putting your own touches to a festive theme.
Currently, our dining table and mantelpiece are filled with the most beautiful collection of engagement cards. We are truly blessed to have so many amazing friends and family who have sent kind words and wishes. We have been so touched by the outpouring of love and the sheer thoughtfulness we have been shown. It makes me smile every time I come into the room. You may have spotted my beautiful R print too which is taking pride of place in the centre of the table - isn't it gorgeous? It's by Lucy Loves This - her hand pulled typographic prints are sold in Liberty in London as well as lots of independent shops and online retailers. The animal alphabet prints are by far my favourite - I realise they are probably more at home in a child's bedroom but I think they look great in a grown up house too! Tom has been eyeing up the T print too so it might end up under the tree if he's a good boy! I think they're such good value for a framed print and there are tote bags, teatowels and other prints on the site that would make great Christmas presents.
