the simplicity of christmas decorating

Deirdre Brennan - Thursday, December 20, 2012




My philosophy for Christmas decorating inside or out ... keep it simple, less is more and think elegance above all else !!

Colour is fine, however work with the one theme or colour palette. It is always a good idea to give some thought or reference back to your existing interior or exterior colour scheme when choosing the colours for your decorations. 

Have fun !!



The Country Trader Extravaganza

Deirdre Brennan - Monday, December 05, 2011


What fabulous fun was had by all at The Country Trader Extravaganza.  Billed as the Greatest Show on Earth, it was all of that and more.  The Circus theme had everyone in the mood from the minute you entering the big top with all the entertainment that goes with it !!!!

In addition to the ever expanding collection of divine antique pieces....large and small, the massed Christmas decorations were breathtakingly beautiful and hard to resist. 

Very festive indeed....not to mention the most beautiful Christmas pudding I have ever tasted (very similar in flavour to the one I make but somehow twice as good when you haven't slaved over it yourself....or was it the accompanying Moet & Chandon!!!!)

Geoffrey Clark does nothing by halves....ever.
