More Christmas at Basildon Park

As I said last Sunday, I am not doing any Advent posts this year.  Instead I am sharing the photos that I have taken this year at Basildon Park.

Enjoy this weeks selection!







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.

  1. I must try and make it to Basildon Park to see it dressed for Christmas - just received a Christmas card with a picture of it too that was also a reminder.

  2. Christmas roses are quite a different decoration but go so well. It must be fun helping out there at this time of year. x

  4. Pretty tree. Roses and burlap go together nicely.

  5. Wonderful images, Amy!
    Often I think that Christmas in Britain is the most Christmassy of all... even though it's rather nice in Finland as well.
    Ah, that brought to me mind: remember to vote for Saara Aalto! ;)
    Have a happy new week! xx

  7. Aren't the Trust doing well, Amy, opening the houses at Christmas like this! It didn't use to happen, except where there was something exceptional such as the wonderful garland in the great hall at Cotehele in Cornwall. We went to Saltram the week before last and each of the rooms that have been decorated (not the main ones because work is being carried out) are wonderful. The theme is children's stories, and they have room depicting Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, the Mad Hatter's Tea Party from Alice's Adventures I Wonderland, and Narnia from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. It's all quite magical (and I've done a blog post on it, if you care to pop over, scroll down and have a look-see.)
    Basildon is a lovely house, I'd love to be able to visit it, but sadly we're a little too far away.

  19. What a beautifully decorated tree! Nothing beats a real live tree to showcase those beautiful decorations. I (sadly) have a fake tree, but it's not too bad. I love seeing Basildon Park at Christmas ... you are a lucky lady to spend your days surrounded by such splendour.
