Today I would like to share a blog about our Christmas at Ednovean Farm as we prepare for the festive season.
From wreaths to Christmas trees, from lichen encrusted branches to ritzy table settings. Please join me for a little Ednovean Christmas inspiration.
Five inspirations in my Christmas Blog to you
The traditional Christmas scent
Christmas always starts with a Christmas wreath and no, I’m sorry, I have to admit that I didn’t make one this year. The winter days have been just too short as we approach the winter solstice. Nevertheless I found a gorgeous traditional wreath that gave a comforting waft of Christmas pine, every time we went into our home.
Glass baubles and Christmas tree
Ours has pride of place in our Dining room again this year. However I nervously broke with my own tradition, to invest in some new delicious contemporary glass baubles.
I do feel guilty about the felt and hessian selection though and Charles keeps muttering about a touch of red! Take a look at them in last years Christmas Card to you!
A little bit of Nordic style
For our hall I prefer and delicate woodland feel and last years potted tree has grown on well. I think it may be able to do one more year before becoming too tall but I’ve looked it up and it will grow to massive proportions! So beware that sweet little tree nestling in your trolley is has designs on taking over your whole garden. As it is, I think I’ll restrict the feeding with miracle grow next year…
A winter enchantment
The autumn gales brought a beautiful old Hawthorn tree down. It was richly encrusted with lichen in soft delicate shades of green and full of woodland promises. We managed to salvage a branch for our guest sitting room Just perfect to give it a little winter enchantment to our home and just in time for the winter solstice.
Putting on the Ritz
Table settings at this time of year are all about putting on the Ritz and whilst at Ednovean farm we only serve Breakfast I thought you might enjoy a tablescape from our Dining room for festive inspiration. Our supper table mixes vintage family keepsakes cut glass with foraged fir cones candles and roses.
Our Christmas card from Ednovean Farm
Our Christmas card this year was a snap I took from our lawn when the snowflakes swirled around me as Perranuthnoe slowly disappeared into the snowstorm. That moment was so still and silent as I stood cocooned in that strange white world. It made a lasting memory forever to share with you so I’m glad I made the effort to go out into the cold one last time that day, to record the scene.
Perfect for a Christmas promise and wish to send to you in years to come.
Finally we would like to wish you a wonderful Christmas. I know for some it can be a difficult time and our thoughts are with you all
A very Happy Christmas from Christine and Charles
