The magical quality of fairy lights should not be confined to the Christmas tree. Indoors and outdoors, candles and flares can shed new light on the perfect family Christmas. I love Christmas and always decorate the outside of the house – it sort of spills out from indoors,” says Victoria Suffield. Three years ago she and her husband, Phil Webb, left their jobs in an art gallery and marketing and moved from London to a Victorian cottage in Dorset where, since the birth of their sons, Christmas has become even more of an event. The decorations are not high-tech or modern, but have a homely quality. Some things, like the shepherd’s crook lanterns and eight-wick block candles, come from Suffield’s shop. Add to these a few home-made additions and a generous mix of electric fairy lights, and you have the makings of a dramatic display. Writer winnylee@btinternet.com
