Dressing Kew Gardens for Christmas

This christmas I was the assistant dresser at Kew Gardens, it was a fantastic project and got me feeling very festive! We worked through the snow and at times it got extremely cold but we powered through and everything looked fabulous!

The style for this year was gold and silver with a sprinkling of fake snow (not that we needed it!) The areas we dressed were the orangery which is a beautiful glass building where we hung 6 wreaths in the windows. We also dressed a huge tree for the entrance and also created wreaths for the forn and back gates of Kew. We sprayed lots of balls silver and put them together in bundles to create larger balls. Fingerless gloves, scarves, and wooly hats galore!
