An SV Christmas Affair

Yallingup, W.A. – Christmas DayFor me Christmas has always been about nature, art and bizarre Christmas Trees.

There is not one year that has gone by where I have not had a bizarre Christmas Tree to open gifts from under. Having a mother that is an art teacher, a father who is an architect/jewellery designer/sculptor and step-mother who is an artist it was never going to be any other way. This year is no exception, the one above is a modification of a sculpture my father did for a project decorated by my step-mother.

The following five images were taken on Christmas eve and they set the scene for the surroundings I am in over the Christmas break. Some were bought and some have been designed and made by my dad.

I love it how the tree stump looks like the arm of this sculpture’s body.

It is always my job to set the table and I know it sounds boring but it is one of my favourite activities of the day.

A Kangaroo and Joey came to visit us and say Happy Christmas, how Aussie is that!

Polly gets a wash before the guests arrive. My step mother uses old fashioned ‘Marthas Wool Wash’ on her as Poodles have little lambswool overcoats.

Edible wild Hibiscus flowers dropped into a glass of Champagne make your bubbly that little bit more special (or as I prefer to say it makes it an SV drink!). This stylish beverage idea can be enjoyed at any celebration and looks even cuter with a drop of the pink Hibiscus syrup added. You should be able to buy it from any good gourmet store.

My gorgeous cousins Pascale and Emily share an SV moment after the family cricket match.

 

The highlight of the evening – My step-mother’s amazing Trifle.
Two huge pavlovas, 7 punnets of strawberries, 8 kiwi-fruit, a litre of custard, a litre of whipped cream, 4 cans of tinned fruit, 6 packets of mini swiss cake rolls and voila!

After dinner and dessert whilst the boys played frisbee in the dark I got a shot of my cousin Madeleine. She is a pretty chic little girl. I have always loved a bolero and this one in silver is very cute. Her flats remind me of some done by Gucci a few years ago.
