Decking the Halls Ahead of Time

Most of us object to the displays of Christmas tat that start to grace stores before summer has passed. But unless you take the perfectly valid position of ignoring the festive season altogether, some forward planning and preparation can mean that this holiday retains its specialness as a family time without being tainted by commercialism.

As up to twelve people are due to descend on our house and motorhome(!) I'm looking for ideas to make the occasion special. I was passing Southwesterly, my favourite Dartmouth gallery, and was taken by the wonderful driftwood trees in the window. I thought I'd share these in case anyone else wants to head down to their local beach and gather the materials to replicate this chic idea.
