Tonight on The Edit, we invite you to our little LENZO Christmas Party - giving you a peek at the faces behind the brand, as we celebrate an amazing year in + out of the office. We teamed up with talented photographer Jess Nicholls, and got some of our favourite suppliers on board, to turn the gorgeous Establishment Studios into a winter wonderland!
We were inspired by Nordic design - and our subdued palette was expressed through our DIY element of painted tree stumps and pine cones, using shades of Greyology 1 + 5 and Pale Mushroom 5 from Haymes. We scattered these everywhere -from the table tops to the floor, and even incorporated them in the #TOODIEFOR green chandelier by Tori Allen Events, who provided us with the greenery for the day.
Furniture specialists Dann Event Hire jumped on board, and provided us with their latest #onpoint range. From the wooden bar to the concrete table top, we were in love with the Scandinavian elements the furniture brought to the shoot. We then added a LENZO touch (you know we love to have fun) with jumbo Belle Balloons, which looked super sophisticated with the addition of trailing holly.
To treat ourselves this Christmas, we indulged in the deliciously unique Veuve Rich and it's various mixers. We continued the European theme by warming up with some Polish Nog cocktails - #YUM! And we were feeling very merry by the end of it.
The bespoke stationery was designed by Love JK, who even customised wrapping paper with our very own faces - a cute idea to make gift giving just a touch more personal! This is now available through LENZO and is definitely a #TeamRecommendation! We loved it!
We made our children's table e extra special for Annie, Lucy and Marley with gorgeous goods from Illume Partyware. If you love mixed metallics as much as we do, be sure to check out their latest silver + gold range - perfect for the festive season. We are especially loving those striped napkins, which sure came into use with all those sticky treats!
To finish off the kid's corner, we incorporated a flowing canopy from My Little Teepee and the coolest lights from Mini Marquee - a perfect gift for your little one. The kid's looked like little angels in their crisp whites and accessories from Pumpkin Patch. They instantly became attached to their new furry friends, and the distraction was much needed as we quickly topped up at the bar...
And of course, it isn't Christmas without desserts and as always, we let our sweet tooth get the better of us and we went all out! In A World of Cake created #THOSE foiled cookies and specially curated the yummiest handmade chocolates we have ever tasted. A. T Bakes provided us with the marshmallows, cupcakes and gingerbread men. The LENZO team are still so upset that we didn't get to try any of these little ginger cuties - as our kid's went straight for them and they were gone in minutes!
One of our favourite additions was the One Two Trees - that are a great (and sustainable) alternative to your regular christmas tree! We decorated these with beautiful Christmas decorations from West Elm (sparkly hashtag ornament anyone?!)
Since we #CLEARLY aren't models, Tyla Miller gave us a helping hand and made us look pretty for the day! We also added some extra sparkle to our Christmas Day thanks to the gorgeous jewellery by GMS Silver. We are in love with the vast range these talented girls stock - trust us when we say you will be seeing more of them to come in the near future!
For clutches, we just had to stop at LENZO favourite The Daily Edited, who were lovely enough to customise a pouch for each member of the team! We also decked our feet out in sandals from Bared Footwear, whose comfy shoes are perfect for those days where you are running around like a mad hen! And trust us - we were!
And we know that although gift giving is one of the best parts of the holiday season, it can also be the most stressful. But never fear; the latest member of the LENZO team William and Watson Co certainly have your gift giving needs covered, with the most gorgeous hampers. Dear partners, they are on the top of our Christmas wishlist...
Once the shoot was a wrap and our sugar highs faded, we were ready to wander off home and went to sleep knowing we would be doing this all again in a months time for the real big day...
Merry Christmas lovelies!
Love LENZO xx
