1920's Christmas Attingham Park Mansion National Trust

Some of your may recall that I volunteer at my local National Trust Property Sunnycroft, an Edwardian Villa and neighbour to another Shropshire National Trust property Attingham Park and Mansion.

As local volunteers we were give the opportunity to enjoy a preview of Attingham Park mansion all dressed up for Christmas. Styled in a 1920's theme with beautiful soft lighting, it was very atmospheric and very Downton Abbey.  Hats off to the volunteers that dressed the rooms, there were an extensive number of beautiful Christmas trees and floral arrangements throughout the mansion.

The dinning room looked spectacular, the table set for a beautiful party and a several Christmas trees along with a display of period 1920's costumes. They were not your average tree decorations either, many of them were decorated to an unique theme. The tree in the library was included with berries, feathers and deer antlers. I am sure they must have quite a supply of these as the mansion in set in the grounds of a deer park. The tree in the boudoir was covered in dried flowers including large hydrangea flower heads, this tree was much admired by the ladies that create the flower arrangements at Sunnycroft. Sadly I do not have a photograph of this, it is a small room with many people.

There were so many beautiful Christmas Trees, which must of taken a great number of hours to dress. But I know they will be much admired by the thousands of visitors over the next few weeks. The afternoon ended with a sing song of Christmas carols in the picture gallery.

Be sure to find some time this festive season to visit and enjoy the beautifully dressed mansion at Attingham Park. Or of course Sunnycroft which is on a much small but no less grand scale.
