Country Living Christmas Fair London 2018

by | Nov 11, 2018 | Decorations

Just a few mere weeks after moving to the UK in 2016 I found myself just a block from my new house at the Country Living Christmas Fair – and it helped me adjust to this new culture, and this new City. Now, an annual tradition – I’m happy to share with you some of my favourite booths and decorations from the fair itself.

This year, I even took part in THREE Crafting workshops (and will share the awesome how-to’s in an upcoming post. First, here are some of my best and most favourite photos from the event, which is held every year at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.

Some of my favourite Stalls where there, and I just love the Christmas decor and ambience. I always try to do my best to not go overboard with the shopping. Funnily enough I almost usually buy the same things, visit the same stalls, they’ve become my annual favourites.


The giant Christmas Tree, the music, the mulled wine – and all the fun festive decor ideas is just the perfect way to kick off the holiday season.

I’ll be publishing some Christmas Crafts soon that I did at the three workshops at the fair – which ends today in London. However, you can still visit their Glasgow or Harrowgate fairs until the end of November – see more on their website.
