Set the scene for a dazzling event witha customised feathered wreath.
Create a riot of pattern and texture in the hall with cascading iridescent decs and a fabulous peacock feather print.
Don't forget the pooch..
Dress your tree with unusual shapes and eye-popping colour.
Sprinkle some star dust.
Dipping feathers in glitter is a sure-fire way to add more glitz.
To create a Christmas-in-the-tropics vibe, layer-up palm prints, leaf motifsand swathes of fluttering butterflies.
Let the butterflies flutter across the walls for a fun flash of colour.
With a tree made entirely out of paper, up the luxe factor with marbled walls, exotic animals and lashings of gleaming gold.
Let the party commence.
Creature comforts add colour and shine.
Clash vibrant hues for a carnival of colour.
Take your cue from Santa’s travels and show off festive favourites from across the globe in a series of spectacular displays.
Make it an avian-themed advent countdown.
Create a festive vignette with bell jars and baubles.
