Style Di­ary

How our sea­sonal but swel­ter­ing two days panned out!

Style at Home (UK) - - Promotion -

Tues­day, 9.30am read­ers Hay­ley, Vicky and lucy meet the Style at Home team for a day of styling with Wilko, M&S and Ge­orge Home. af­ter a quick brekkie, it’s straight into a wrap­ping work­shop with ex­pert Nee­lam.

11.30am Next, the ladies get fully im­mersed into dec­o­rat­ing their trees – sift­ing through boxes of baubles, reams of rib­bons and piles of parcels. Tem­per­a­tures soar above 30 de­grees, but we’re in fes­tive spirit with Michael Bublé croon­ing in the back­ground!

3pm It’s time to start pho­tograph­ing the ladies and their fin­ished trees. First it’s hair and makeup and a quick dress change be­fore their ‘lights, cam­era, ac­tion’ mo­ment. ev­ery­one looks fab!

6pm We all head to the ho­tel for a quick recharge and to meet to­mor­row’s ladies – emily, Ta­nia, Claire and alix. Next it’s onto a nearby res­tau­rant to en­joy a Christ­massy din­ner, com­plete with crack­ers and party favours!

Wed­nes­day, 9am Hay­ley, Vicky and lucy head home, but to­day’s read­ers join the Style at Home team for their glitzy day of Christ­mas magic and dec­o­rat­ing a tree in their own way.

10.30am Nee­lam shows how easy it is to adorn parcels with pleated folds (turn to page 24 to see her ideas). Then the ladies start styling their trees us­ing Home­base, pound­land, Dunelm and Wye­vale Gar­den Cen­tres’ tree decs.

1pm It’s yet an­other boil­ing day, but it doesn’t stop ev­ery­one get­ting in the mood – sip­ping on bub­bly and nib­bling on mince pies! all the trees are look­ing fab­u­lously fes­tive adorned with pretty dec­o­ra­tions and twin­kling fairy lights.

3pm When the looks are fin­ished, the ladies get ready to stand proudly with their sparkling trees. Once again, it’s been a bril­liant day and a com­plete suc­cess, and the over­all looks are su­perb! Turn the page to see all of the fin­ished trees – we hope you like them!
