A couple of weeks ago in this Feeling Festive post, I gave you a sneak peek of some gorgeous little trees and Scandi-inspired decorations I was using in an upcoming Christmas-themed shoot. I can now tell you it was for the latest issue of BNZ GoodHome, for which I had a lot of fun styling an outdoor table that had been built onsite by fellow GoodHome contributor and builder John Cocks. The perfect DIY solution when you're hosting the Christmas Day festivities, it costs less than $100 to make, and will seat an extra 12 people. Post-Chrissy, it would make a great outdoor work table or office desk! Find out everything you need to know here.
Choosing a relaxed, Scandi-style theme for the table, a highlight was getting to use the exquisite new range of dinnerware by Father Rabbit, who also provided the gorgeous trees, decorations and Star Trays. I'm sure many of you can relate to gathering up all the chairs around home to accommodate extra guests, so I decided on an eclectic mix that included four beautiful Citta Design Oak Spindle Back Chairs. Retailing at $320 each, there is a special deal running currently where you can purchase them in store for $990 for a set of four, or $1,440 for a set of six!
Blue skies and sunshine all around, I hope the weather turns out to be as gorgeous as this on Christmas Day!
