When we spied this take on an Australian Christmas, we couldn’t resist the need to share it with you. There is something special about Australian Christmas decor that is different to the rest of the world, the colours are more muted, the textures and fabrics more natural. the play of our Summer, that hardy blooms. The combination? Something that is uniquely Australian and truly beautiful.
The team, with Sophie Timothy Photography behind the camera, and stylist Jessica of Eclectic Creative worked her magic to create her vision, a Christmas table that was simple, effortless and paired back.
The linens were topped with beautiful crockery, each guest welcomed to their seat with a personalised gum leaf, hand-lettered by Pepper Eve Calligraphy with festive-inspired cookies by Sweet Mickie. Australian summer blooms – wax flowers, flannel flowers and eucalyptus sat in different-sized vessels, beautifully styled by Kim of Make It Beautiful to be the star of the show.
Jessica added treat lights and sweet kraft paper packets (tied up with string of course) to finish the look.
“With an abundance of summer sun and the unique native flora and greenery we have on offer, I was inspired to create a textured and natural festive Australiana tablescape to inspire others” she says. “The key is laid back and effortless styling using a neutral overall palette with an eclectic mix of natural pottery and ceramics.”
