A little bit of a shop makeover

We have been having so much fun in the shop this week. 
These mischievious creatures turned up yesterday and if I give them a chance they will whip up a storm here in the store.
I am forever finding them scattered through the place, hiding in trees, peeking out from behind a just never know where they are going to be.

At the moment there is stock arriving nearly on a daily basis and that means we get the opportunity to fuss around with the trees and playing around with the colours. 
The trees change on a regular basis.
This is one that a couple of elves and I have been working on during this past week. 
A great way to use ribbon .... keep an eye on this tree as it will change....

This is our peacock tree.  Again we are trying to use different things in the tree to give you alternatives to decorating.  Here we grabbed some netting and just flowed it from the top to the bottom.  Keeping the colours simple on this we only used green, peacock blue and purple.  However, there is always a place for some silver and gold somewhere.

This is one of our most popular colour trees. 
It is still a work in progress and will look totally different by the end of today. 
We are mainly using champagne and brown in this tree with a lot of follage.

We are not just about trees though in at The Christmas Beetle, we also love our yummy food.  Here is just a sample of some of our cake stands and resting on top is a cookie jar. 
Red and white are fantastic colours to bring out at any time of the year but with the cute little candies on them these will work up a treat during your Christmas celebrations and the cake will look devine resting on one of these stands.

Looking forward to showing you more photos soon,
Mrs C xxxx
