Although, decorations aren't able to be purchased online this year, we have created some lovely gift edits to hopefully inspire you and help you find the perfect present if you aren't able to come and see us.
Our 'Gold Artisan' theme is a celebration of all artisanal crafts. From intricate gold leaves to Indian inspired, filigree stars, this theme will dazzle. Using delicate pieces with cut out patterns and prints is a great way of adding texture and interest despite the limited gold colour palette. Moreover, using burnished candle holders and and sparkly fairylights also brings in warming tones and depth to this style.
With a focus on sustainability and care for the environment, our 'Natural Materals' theme features many familiar textures and raw materials which highlight the beauty of the natural world. Pure and elegant, minimal and light, simple shapes and silhouettes capture a Christmas that celebrates the wonderful outdoors and brings the outside in.
This exciting Christmas theme celebrates beautiful design and craft with Kashmiri hand painted decorations, Rajasthani fabric stags, hand printed paper chains and papier-mâché stars. Bring fantasies of opulence into your home with ornate mini glass baubles in clashing jewel colours.
Become captivated by a lustrous and enchanting woodland, where intricate etched glass, sweet pears and burnished metal acorns create a decadent atmosphere. Inspired by nature, deep shades of the forest are encapsulated in antique smoke coloured baubles and glittering pinecones all suited for the season of dark nights.
A charming collection of delightful characters; tobogganing mice in knitted jumpers are joined by bristly badgers, it really is a theme that encompasses the nostalgic fun that winter brings.
