Living Etc - - AGENDA -

It’s not just the bulbs light­ing up Har­rods that are set to daz­zle this Christ­mas. The shop­ping icon’s Cir­cus col­lec­tion is ev­ery bit as spec­tac­u­lar, brim­ming with more shim­mer­ing, sug­ary-sweet dec­o­ra­tions than you could stuff in a striped mar­quee. Ex­pect carousel or­na­ments decked with Swarovski crys­tals and se­quin-strewn baubles, all washed down with glit­tery pop­corn and can­dyfloss decs. Tak­ing to the stage are ring­mas­ter, hare and ele­phant dolls by Alice Mary Lynch, each hand-stitched from vintage tex­tiles and trea­sures. Got the buzz? We round up the best of the big-top adorn­ments on page 29.

6ft ar­ti­fi­cial moun­tain spruce tree, £285; Alice Mary Lynch an­gel tree top­per, £250; tree dec­o­ra­tions and baubles, from £10 each; Alice Mary Lynch Hare in a Hoop or­na­ment, £995; and Alice Mary Lynch Ring­mas­ter Rosco Lion, on chair, £995, all Har­rods
