15.12.2011- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Thursday, 15 December 2011

I have to confess, I'm a little bit behind with my Christmas preparations this year. All of my presents are bought, but my cards are yet to be written out and the tree is still waiting to go up. I'm slowly but surely feeling more festive, and am confident that the decorations will be finished this weekend. After watching this video of the beautiful Lanvin tree being installed at Claridge's Hotel, I'm feeling pretty inspired to recreate some of Alber Elbaz' quirky Christmas magic in my own front room:


I can't work out whether the video is amazing or a bit creepy (considering I've got a lifelong fear of ventriloquist's dummies, the animated faces are a bit scary!), but the tree itself is stunning. And I'd love to go for afternoon tea with mini-Alber...how amazing does that raspberry macaroon look?

Are you prepared for Christmas? And what do you think of the Lanvin tree?
