Christmas Table

As Christmas is now just around the corner, I thought I'd share these festive table images with you. They are from a shoot I styled for The Simple Things magazine using only products from their online shop, The Stuff of Life

The images are by the super-lovely photographer, Emma Gutteridge, who I tend to find myself working with more and more these days, which is a joy.

I worked on this shoot a few months back, when the Christmas products hadn't quite reached the shop shelves, so I had to be rather creative - such as using some beautifully patterned paper to make crackers. I guess it goes to show how you can create a festive table with everyday bits that you probably already have. Just add plenty of greenery (eucalyptus smells divine), battery-powered fairy lights and some candles and you'll have capture some of that Christmas magic.

All products are available to buy at The Stuff of Life and instructions on how to make the crackers and place cards are featured in the December issue of The Simple Things, out now and available to buy in all good newsagents or here.
