A “Warm Welcome” for Christmas

This post is my entry to the Turtle Mat Christmas Blogger Challenge, where the brief was to create a “warm welcome” for Christmas – it could be for the doorway, living room, or dining room

So I chose to create a welcoming Christmas living room theme.

Christmas is a magical time and I wanted to try and capture that.  If it snows on Christmas Eve, then it is even more enchanted!  So I chose to base my theme around the Winter Wonderland Turtle Mat design, which is a gorgeous snowy woodland scene.

Having recently looked at some of the beautiful paper sculptures by Su Blackwell, I had images of Narnia and the Snow Queen in mind.

Have you seen them?  Aren’t they exquisite…

Together with the Winter Wonderland mat, they formed the inspiration for my room scheme with snowy decorations, tealights glowing in zinc crowns and woodcutter-style cottage holders, as well as cosy soft furnishings…

Enchanted Forest-Inspired Living Room

So even though it may be snowy and cold outside, inside you’ll find a warm Christmas welcome with a glass of mulled wine or some hot chocolate and a big roaring fire!
