Welcome to our christmas blog - The place to be inspired by all things christmas.

Christmas Fiesta

It’s an absolute delight to share with you our collection of bright, fun and playful Christmas décor which we have named, Fa La La La Llama – A Christmas Fiesta.

 

Inspired by the beautiful bright colours found in South American homewares, this collection is perfect for those looking for Christmas décor that is casual, relaxed and easy to put up and put away.  We believe it is the ideal Christmas décor for outdoor celebrations such as at parks, the beach or poolside.

Decorate your sideboard – Christmas Fiesta style!

Let’s start by introducing you to 2 of my favourite new friends – our Boy and Girl Llama stockings. Let’s call them Larissa and Larry Llama.

We absolutely love these little fellas, the detailed appliqued design is amazing. We loved it so much we created a matching cushion so that you draw this fun design onto your lounge or any chair in your home.

Like all our stockings, you can have these personalised with any name and glitter colour that you like. Simply let us know what you’d like when placing your order.

The stockings are hung with our plain chrome stocking hangers and then we’ve simply added a llama ornament to carry the theme onto the top of the sideboard.

We have dressed the top of the sideboard with a rich antique gold metal Christmas tree and nestled two llama ornaments below. We’ve then included a couple of glittery Christmas trees to complete this gorgeous vignette.

Colourful Christmas Fiesta Florals

Our Christmas Fiesta wreath has as its base a plain Christmas wreath, this one is our Majestic Pine Wreath. We’ve then added pom poms, ribbon and our fabulous personalised plaque in rainbow glitter.  Our personalised plaques are so versatile, you can hang them in the middle of a wreath like this, hang them on your door or simply on a wall. The centre of your wreath can also be adorned with a stunning star or any other decoration of your choice.

We’ve added some real personality to an otherwise plain garland by incorporating personalised Christmas baubles. What a wonderful way to make everyone at your Christmas Fiesta feel welcome.

Above the bauble garland we’ve hung the poster we have designed especially for the Christmas Fiesta collection. It is just adorable and like all our posters, you can download it for free.

Set the Table for Your Christmas Fiesta

Throwdown a colourful table cloth, or perhaps you could use a towel or rag, pull up some comfy cushions and use all the colours of the rainbow to set your table.

We have incorporated an 8cm Shatterproof Personalised Christmas Bauble as part of our place setting as well as one of our Abracadabra Magic Bon Bons.

The simple centrepiece of two glittery Christmas trees is all that is needed on the table to provide some variation in height, however we taken the table up a notch, quite literally, by creating a canopy above it using pom-pom garlands and chrome seed lights.

Finally, we’ve hung some simple honeycomb paper decorations to draw the eye to the centre of the table and add a real fiesta feel.

Not your Average Christmas Tree

We have chosen a pair of simple white branch trees for Fa La La La Llama – A Christmas Fiesta and brought them to live it with a few simple tree decorations including felt stars, hearts and baubles as well as pom poms, tassels and these cute wooden llamas.

Be sure to carry the Fiesta into your present wrapping by trimming them with lots of bright satin ribbons.

Get creative and crafty for your Christmas Fiesta

We had so much fun adding a touch of Fiesta to our Christmas décor using pom poms, tassels and ribbons.

Our pair of cute plush sitting and standing Llamas, look so comfortable sitting among the trimmed basket, with their cute little pom-pom beanies ready for the party to start.

 

Now for those of you that don’t know how to make a tassel, like me, be sure to visit the Make & Create section of our website to see how you can easily make your own tassels and some great ideas for how you can use them. It’s fun, high impact and yet super affordable.
