Christmas Pavilion

with 4 comments

 

Before Christmas 2014 fades away to a mere memory, I wanted to do this post both as an personal event in my SL and as a decor project. It was the first Christmas that I shared with my dear husband and friend, Arrchie.  I wasn’t even expecting us to be in SL over the season what with our RL family obligations and all that, but it turned out that we spent a lot of Christmas together enjoying each other’s company and the company of SL friends and family – it was an amazingly joyful time 🙂

We decorated the Pavilion for Christmas as it was the only suitable empty ‘room’ we had at the time. Here’s the first Pavilion post. I think it was about 3 quarters full by the time we got everything in.

There was a wonderful amount of decor available over Christmas, both from events and special offers. The Homes & Gardens designers were on top form and on the LTD blog we were posting non stop every day 🙂  I’m a funny ole sod but I always start with a fireplace! My inspiration initially came from ‘!! Follow US !!’ with one of their seasonal fireplaces and from then on it was easy.

Here we are Christmas eve cuddled up on a beautiful cream leather sofa from Warm Animations – love her original animations – plus teddy sitting on the arm. Various decor from Floorplan, Cheeky Pea, N4RS, Storax Tree, Chez Moi, Bazar and Alouette. Don’t think I’ve missed anyone out but if I have, humble apologies.

A big part of Christmas decor is to do with feasting. I loved this Christmas tea set from Robin Sojourner – a long time teacher and designer in SL.  It gave out tea and cakes and was very popular! I’m going to be forced to get a less seasonal set now as I miss its ‘host with the most’ qualities. Also the way steam rises from the teacups you’ve just poured out. It’s those little details that go towards making a great decor piece.

No Christmas room is complete without a tree. This beautiful decorated Christmas tree by Tartessos Arts came with extra gifts and a train set that went around the base of the tree – most impressive and low land impact, too. It also contained light effects, snow effects and animations. The beribboned mistletoe from Chez Moi had numerous kiss animations attached and that was also rather popular 🙂

Here’s a couple of my favorite Christmas decor items. Firstly, the reindeer carousel from Alouette. When I interviewed designer Scarlet recently for LTD she said this was one of her favorite pieces and that customers have derived a good deal of joy from it. Not surprised as I still have it up. We can have reindeer all year round, can’t we? The other is from Storax Tree and it’s one of Kate’s felines on mats. But this time – he’s cuddled up on a Holiday rug. Extreme cuteness!

That’s all for now. Cheers, m’dears 🙂
