The Styling the Seasons challenge for November was to produce a seasonal flatlay, that is, a photo taken from above. I’m a big fan of the flatlay, and most of my Instagram pictures are taken like this, so I really enjoyed this month.
The lovely pots, split oranges and dried limes were from an early festive selection from Wild Damson, while the berries and foliage were
hacked cut gently from a tree in someones garden overhanging the pavement. I mostly use fake berries for arrangements in the winter, because while it’s nice to go out and find those lovely plump ones, they soon turn all shrivelled and sad – and I’m far too lazy to keep changing them every few days.
The next Styling the Seasons will be December, which I’m particularly excited about – I’m heading off to some of my favourite shops over the weekend to find some lovely little bits and pieces ready for festive decorating. I think we’re going to go for a real tree this year, if I can persuade Ali that picking up pine needles every five minutes isn’t really all that bad!
