We love Christmas and I’m fortunate in that I have some great people to help me getting this monster up and decorated. If I didn’t have the help I’m certain we’d not have this size of Christmas tree. It demands a lot of decorations and I’ve always been completely dictatorial about what is allowed on and what is not. Most of our Christmas decorations are from Denmark and a considerable percentage is from Georg Jensen. I love the annual arrival of this year’s design. We have it hanging in the window of the Breakfast room for the first season, so we can see it properly, but after that it get hung in various parts of the house, including the Conservatory.

Wishing you all a happy Christmas and here is hoping that 2015 brings a wider and lasting peace throughout the world!
