The Christmas Branch 2019

Updated: May 13, 2020

Its now been 3 years and counting that this branch has been suspended above our dining table and each year at Christmas time I have the challenge to give it a little make over. Throughout the year it often has a new look for celebrations such as Easter, Halloween and Birthday parties, but its daily look is quite simple. Just the branch and little round glass tea light holders. The thing I love most about this branch is that I can go to town on the decorations, knowing that it is out of reach of little fingers and offers a gorgeous focal point to a dead ceiling space above the table. 

The majority of glass baubles were removed to make way for some greenery!  I decided to give the branch a bit more life and colour this year, so have added eucalyptus to its branches along with a few peacock feathers, to soften it up. The branch is suspended across two parallel beams that support the ceiling in this room, hung using strong twine string. 

I was delighted when Laura Ashley asked me to collaborate and do a blog post on the branch's makeover this year, especially when I saw their stunning jewel toned decor. Just look at those colours, detail and sparkle! 

The baubles I have used are all from the Peacock Feather range alongside the Jewel Tassel decoration. I also added three of the gorgeous Frosted Green Tree Candles and the Frankincense and Clementine candles to the table tray along with a few green baubles, for that extra festive touch. 

And here it is, branch 2019, looking all festive and feathery, with its beautiful Laura Ashely jewelled adornments. A magpie's dream!  The eucalyptus foliage will dry in the lead up to Christmas, but retains it colour, so still looks good, it usually lasts well for about a month, then turns more brown. I can't wait to sit underneath it with all the family on Christmas day!
