Hi friends! I’ve always adored luxe Christmas style and always aim for this style in my home when decorating for the most wonderful time of the year! I have tried traditional colours but I can never seem to resist glitter and sparkle. (What can I say.. black, white & glitter have power over me!)
So I was super excited to style this Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoot! When putting the mood board together, I instantly had a vision in my head and just ran with it. Growing up in the UK, most years I woke up to a wonderful white Christmas and it truly did make Christmas. Having lived in Australia now for 12 years, I must admit, swopping the snow and minus degree temperatures for sun and prawns isn’t quite the same so the opportunity to recreate a whimsical woodland Christmas setting was the perfect theme for me.
As soon as Ellana (Sweet P Cakes & Cookies) recommended the location for our shoot, I knew it was perfect and that’s where I drew my inspiration for our color palette moss, rose gold, silver and white. Add in five gorgeous little fairy models and voilà we have a magical setting.
Getting caught up in every little detail, I’m truly in my element, so it was nearly effortless to create a festive Christmas setting like this with decor items supplied by these amazing vendors (see below).
First, I styled the Christmas tree with lots of silver & white elements, and then placed in some greenery which complimented the forest them which was our backdrop. I think a beautiful tree skirt is the perfect finishing touch. Then, I styled a low setting table which was set up for a Christmas feast! This was so much fun and I added lots of elements and layers across the table. The shoot took place right on dusk.
I also used some large silver and rose gold orbz balloons and added some ribbon so they looked like large Christmas presents. You can style these under your Christmas tree and they are perfect for photoshoots just like this and for any theme.
Now the real magic happens! Drum roll, please. Enter, Sienna, Ava, Ivy, Grace & Alice! The girls had so much fun hosting this winter woodland themed Christmas, running through the forest and enjoying these stunning sweet treats. Their magical flower crowns are perfection and they also had little foral bouquets.
I hope you enjoy looking at these stunning images captured by Anita Elliston Photography, as much I enjoyed styling this Christmas setting.
Have a wonderful Christmas xx
