I am glad today to be able to share Christmas at Basildon Park this year with you! There are lots of photos, but I have tried to group them by the different rooms so hopefully you will get the idea of how each room looks from the different photos.
This year things have been done a little bit differently, because the house is now open all year round, some of it has to be shut off during the winter to allow the cleaning and conservation to happen. So this year Christmas is only on the first floor, but it does mean that the team have been able to really go for it!
Hopefully you will enjoy this little tour and it will get you in the Christmas spirit. It certainly did it for me!!
Starting off at the front of the house.
The Entrance Hall makes a great entrance to the house!
Then we go through to the Library. You will adore the book tree in here!
The biggest tree is in the Staircase Hall. Doesn't it look grand and imposing! Slightly smaller than some in previous years, but it suits the space much better I think!
The Dining Room is spectacular as always! Definitely one of my favourite rooms in the house!
Not of course that the Octagon Room isn't beautiful too!
Then our second to last room, the Green Drawing Room. If you remember Lady Rose's Wedding from Downton Abbey you will have seen some of these beautiful flowers before. We reused them!
Even the 1950's Kitchen has a touch of Christmas to it!
That is the tour for this year! I do hope that you enjoyed it. If you are near enough to visit I really would recommend it. I know that I am biased but I visited last week with my friend Selma from Eclectic Home Life and she loved it too, so I think that you will!
