Final visit to Basildon Park for Christmas

Today I have the final grouping of photos that I have to share from this years Christmas at Basildon Park.  I hope you have enjoying coming along and seeing what the house looks like.








I hope you are enjoying a peaceful Advent.

Amy

p.s. just to clarify and in case you are new here to my blog, I am a volunteer Tour Guide at Basildon Park, they know that I exist (because I work there!), but I post about it because I want to, and all thoughts and opinions are my own.

  4. Dear Amy, It is always special to have a look at Basildon House, and the Christmas decor is as splendid as ever. I don't think you can beat deep green and red for Christmas. The red roses look so lovely, as do the red fruit (apples?). From time to time I get into pink, blue, and other Christmas themes, but this year, I'm right back into the red, green, and a dusting of fake silver and snow! Merry Christmas Amy. x

  6. Looks really lovely Amy. I really must get along to Polesden Lacey today to see their decorations especially as my son delivered a 15 foot tree for the hall and others for elsewhere in the house and grounds. Very misty and atmospheric here, just like Great Expectations! Hope it clears tomorrow as I will be driving to deepest Kent to collect my daughter for the holidays. I have a feeling she is Christmassed out as she has been working at the Canterbury Cathedral shop and has eaten three Christmas dinners already.

  10. It is all so charming that I am sure Basildon's Christmas visitors have been blessed to see it. Have you ever used any of the decorating ideas seen there? I like the dried fruit slices and used to know how to do it using the microwave.

  19. Thank you for more Basildon photos, Amy ... you can never post too many for me, I love the house and its architecture, furniture, ceramics, textiles and paintings. But then, I'm much more an architecture and décor fan than someone who knits or crochets, as I can't do either - I'm a duffer when it comes to anything remotely crafty (Ok, I've been called crafty in my life but not at making things, har, har!) But any time you want to post about Basildon, that's fine by me!
    I posted about Saltram House near Plymouth a couple of weeks ago, I love these NT properties that now remain open and decorated for Christmas.
