Happy Winter Monday.

DH and I had a great Christmas Weekend.  On Friday evening we went to Chatsworth House for the Twilight Visit around the rooms dressed for Christmas.  Each year they have a different theme and this year is “Around the World in Eighty Days”.  Warning this is a picture heavy post!!!!


This is one of the two trees in the official Dining Room.


I always love this room.


The Dining Table with the Delft china on.


The Blue decorations on the tree echoing the blue Delft.


My most favourite rooms of all the Anti-Library and Libray at Chatsworth.


The tree in the Library was all golden.


I would be quite happy to live in this room all the time!!!


One of the Bedrooms decked out from China.


Above – this could be Norbert from Harry Potter!!


A very wintery painting in the anti-room of one of the bedrooms.


These rooms were dressed for Japan


This tree and the room dressed for India.


This is an Indian bed spread made of silk and beading.


The Oak Room decorated with a country theme.


The private Chapel with the Nativity and floating candles, again very Harry Potter!!!


The Hallway dressed with views from Canada.


The entrance with the “Around the World in Eighty Days” theme.


Unfortunately we did not get any pictures of the house outside as it was pouring with rain yet again!!!!  We got a drink and mince pie when we were in the Great Hall and there was a string trio playing Christmas carols.  It was a lovely evening and all the real fires were lit in the different rooms adding to the visit.

Tomorrow I will show you where we went on Saturday.

Happy Monday everyone.

Hugs, Susie xx

    That is simply amazing!!! I wonder how many people and how many weeks went into creating that wonderland!!?? And how long it will take to bring the rooms back to normal!! What is an anti-room?? Like the entrance to the room?? Anti-library leads to the library?? How far is Chatsworth House from your house? I put up the Christmas lights outside this weekend after cleaning the gutters…does that count? LOL
