We kicked off the Christmas season in style yesterday with our festive Christmas Vignettes event at Kildare Village. An instant sell-out success, tickets were snapped up in less than 12 hours by our 50+ attendees who travelled from across the country, from as far as Co Mayo and Northern Ireland.
Kildare Village put on a beautiful spread of gorgeous dessert bites displayed on afternoon tea stands, alongside bubbly, tea and coffee to welcome guests and start the afternoon off right.
Events and experience stylist Kate O'Dowd joined House and Home editorial director Kirstie McDermott to talk us through our five Christmas Vignettes, featuring gorgeous, simple and quick ideas that you could easily try at home to get that beautifully styled look that's a little alternative while still being totally achievable.
With styling tips and tricks to impress guests no matter the event this festive season, Kate had created inspiring vignettes with something to suit every room, from how to dress your mantelpiece without going overboard, to a fun idea for the kitchen that wouldn't look out of place.
You can catch up with some of the tips she offered on our Instagram highlight here!
The best part of all? All the products used on the tables, including the scents, were available to buy at the Village from stores including The White Company, Villeroy & Boch, Penhaligon’s, Molton Brown, and Le Creuset.
Every guest received a Rituals product, a copy of the November/December issue of House and Home, and a VIP Card offering an exclusive discount to use at Kildare Village - the perfect way to kick off an afternoon of Christmas shopping!
