Decking the Halls with Louisa Grace Interiors: Creating A Rustic Vintage Christmas

Decking the Halls with Louisa Grace Interiors: Creating A Rustic Vintage Christmas

At Mad Lilies, we're not just about flowers; we're about creating experiences and memories that linger long after the petals have fallen. Last week, we had the pleasure of collaborating with the fabulous Louisa Grace Interiors for a photoshoot that embraced the charm of putting a rustic vintage twist on your Christmas decor. The result? An adventure in understated yet colourful ways to dress your home that perfectly captures the spirit of the season. 

Working with Claire & Jamie at Louisa Grace is always a joy, not least because we do the shoot at their wonderful Chipstead Location House and get a sneak peek at what Jamie's up to in the workshop, but also because Claire has such a talent for styling a room or setting in a way that's slightly quirky and different yet instantly inviting and homely.

The Brief

What does a Rustic Vintage Christmas look like? How do you create a Christmas style that embodies the spirit and nostalgia of family gatherings, from times when the decorations and ornaments spoke of natural materials hand-crafted with traditional themes?

We were looking for colours and textures that prioritised a feeling of warmth and welcome over glitz and glam. The soft glow of twinkling lights, the rich aroma of cinnamon and pine, and the unmistakable warmth that only the holiday season can bring.

Mixing Magic

Claire, as always, worked her styling magic, infusing every corner of the house with a rustic vintage twist that felt like a journey back in time. From ornaments made with reclaimed wooden and industrial pieces to antique baubles that told stories of Christmases gone by, the decor was a nod to tradition with a modern flair. And Alison, of course, mixed in the Mad Lilies magic of bringing nature indoors with stunning wreaths, floral arrangements and table centrepieces that complemented the rustic charm.

You can read all about Claire's styling ideas for Christmas in her blog, but while you're here, let us tell you more about the Mad Lilies approach to adding some magic to your Christmas home this year.

Christmas Wreaths & Garlands – A Festive Welcome

We'll start, unsurprisingly, at the front door, where you're greeted by one of our sumptuous Christmas Wreaths. Crafted with care and adorned with seasonal delights such as Rosehip Berries, Scented Pine, Cinnamon, and Orange Balls, these wreaths are not just decorations; they are invitations to come indoors and embrace the joy of the season. Each wreath tells a story, weaving together elements of nature and craftsmanship that make them a must-have for your festive decor.

Christmas Table Decoration: Where Elegance Meets Tradition

No Christmas gathering is complete without a table adorned with by a variety of Christmas Table Decorations. Imagine elegant centrepieces that seamlessly blend tradition with a touch of contemporary flair. Our carefully crafted arrangements add a festive touch to your dining experience, making every meal a celebration of togetherness.

Christmas Wreath Workshops: Creating Memories Together

Our Christmas Wreath Workshops have been a resounding success this year, having almost sold out in record time! Participants have had a wonderful time discovering the art of wreath-making, guided by one of the Mad Lilies florists team. From solo crafting enthusiasts to mums & daughters and groups of friends together, the enjoyment shared during these workshops has been a great way for everyone to bring in the spirit of Christmas, proving that the best memories are made when people come together to create something beautiful.
