Craft party inspiration

We are so excited that Sunday sees the first Styling the Seasons event to thank the gorgeous bloggers who helped us launch the monthy styling challenge in September. And what could be better than a craft party at Liberty of London? Eeeep! So excited.

Charlotte and I have decided  to challenge our guests to make some Liberty print Christmas decorations that they can then feature in their December Styling the Seasons posts. So, I have been trying to find some inspiration today to help me decide what to make and I had to start with the Liberty Craft Blog, obvs.  There are going to be lots of crafty bits and bobs from the wonderful The Homemakery, as well as a big pile of Liberty fabric, so the possibilities are endless. I contributed to Liberty’s Christmas campaign last year (I made this advent calendar bunting) and there were also some other really beautiful projects so I’ve pulled them together for a bit of inspiration…

What would you make? I might wait until tomorrow to decide and get some inspiration from the ridiculously talented group of ladies who will be attending. Watch out for the hashtag #craftingtheseasons to see photos of the day and we are very lucky to have Katharine Peachey photographing the event, too, so there will be plenty of lovely photos to follow.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
