The Lodge Barn gets a sparkly Christmas makeover

I am a big fan of Christmas and the rustic feel to Preston Court means its a great canvas for natural looking festive decoration.

This year I foraged in the garden and picked up holly with red berries, fur tree, variegated ivy, twisted hazel, hydrangeas and pine cones. I found some Hazel poles also from the garden and used these to create the formwork from which everything else could hang. I used a small amount of gold spray to pick out a little bit of shimmer on some of the leaves and then added some warm white fairy lights.
