Country Style

Back in September Country Style asked if I would like to come up with some Christmas decorating concepts and style a Christmas story featuring our house. They asked for lots of decorating ideas for the home and tabletop….as you can imagine the request just made my heart sing…. I have never met a table I didn’t want to decorate…

I worked with my florist and friend Anneliese Gomez of Hacienda Flowers on the wreaths and floral displays…. I asked Frank Creates to make a beautiful Christmas banner….

My wonderful friend and assistant for the shoot Sally O executed lots of craft and decorating concepts…. Christmas really did come early for Sally O and I…. Pattypan garland, music sheet crackers, monkey fist rope decorations…

I asked Lachlan of Flour & Chocolate to make this beautiful cake…. he really is a genius …

…He also made this one too…. which Sally O and I modified to include a snowflake…

These are natural beeswax name cones which I filled with muscatels … I have made them for years…. they too will be on our Christmas table this year… you should make them … they look super impressive… yet are so so super easy…

The ‘How To Make’ guide…. I share all my tips and tricks on how to make the little DIY personal touches for Christmas decorating… that is what makes Christmas special for me.. all the little considered special touches…

It is such a beautiful issue, you should put your skates on and buy a copy…. Many thanks to Jared Fowler who shot the beautiful feature and the team at Country Style… plus all the suppliers who loaned gorgeous pieces for the shoot….

P.S… and look where I popped up… on the contributors page… Christmas sure did come early…

  1. Woo hoo! I put all of my love into the Christmas shoot I’m not sure there is any left for Christmas itself. Thanks so much for letting me come along on the journey. So exhausting but well worth it all when you see it all in print! xx

  2. Kara, it looks nothing short of amazing. All your hard work paid off. Well done on such a great achievement!! (Ill need mum to pick me up a copy – I’m sure it’ll never get to me, but mum would love it!)
    Hope you have a stunning Christmas with your loved ones near.
