The Christmas Count Down is on . . .

Six Weeks to go!

Well we are firmly into the countdown to Christmas now with less than six weeks to go! Whilst most people may have just started getting through their festive ‘to-do’ lists we have been busy preparing here at Liv’s HQ for the last couple of months!

Shop Transformation

You may have noticed that our very clever team have transformed the shop into a magical winter wonderland, using our gazebo to showcase all the amazing Christmas decorations and ornaments Liv, Kate and Gina sourced way back in January of this year!

Window Shopping

We have also recently re-dressed the windows, Kate has styled a beautiful nordic Christmas Tree and dining table perfect for a hygge gathering.

Sensational Scent

And in the last week Gina and MC have installed a huge fir backdrop behind the till which has filled the store with the beautiful scent of pine . . .that mixed with the gorgeous pollyfields scented dried fruits is just insane – if Christmas were a smell then this would be it!

Dream Team

At the beginning of the week the team limbered up and flexed their muscles to unload a huge container of exciting and new stock which we can’t wait to fill the store with!!

Shop ’til you Drop

And that is all just in time for our exclusive Christmas Shopping Event, this Thursday 23rd November at 17:30. There are just a few tickets left now, so if you’re lucky you can get your hands on them here. We will be treating you to some festive refreshments, goodie bags and discounts . . .we can’t wait to see you there. We might even brave blasting the Christmas Spotify playlist (it’s not too early is it?!).

A Little Something I Made Myself

Finally, if you want to impress your friends and family as you welcome them into your home this season, why not join us for our first ever ‘Everlasting Wreath’ Workshop?! You’ll learn how to create a bespoke faux foliage wreath and we will provide nibbles, cheer and all the kit you need to build your creation. As those compliments come rolling in about how magnificent your door wreath is from visitors you can nonchalantly remark “Oh, you like my wreath?!” “No, no you can’t buy it from (insert preferred luxury department store), I made it.” <casual hair flick>. Get your tickets here.

Happy Christmas Shopping lovelies. Tra la la la la, la la la laaaa x

Behind the scenes – it’s photoshoot time!

If you follow us on social media, you may have seen that we had a little photoshoot with all of our lovely stock recently!!! Over two days, we took over a lovely old house in the Coleshill countryside and filled it with everything Liv’s!

Our manager Kate, assistant manager Gina, in-house photographer Lou, business owners Liv & MC and of course Betty the Shih-poo all went along to build, style and photograph lots of furniture and accessories for our website.

Take a look below for a little inside look at how things happened over the two days – go team!

Liv’s meets Heather from Feather & Flourish!

As some of you might know, we have been holding a series of creative workshops here at Liv’s over the past few months. It’s been great to see our little shop space being transformed in the evenings and used for creative events – there’s a really different atmosphere once we shut the front doors!

One of our most popular workshops so far has been the chance to learn Modern Calligraphy with the wonderful Heather Martin from Feather & Flourish. If you haven’t already met Heather, we thought you might like to find out a little bit more about her… take a look below for some questions we put to Heather about how she started her business and her inspirations!

Win an Nkuku frame!
