Christmas setting with Belgian designed festive ornaments and trinkets


Dear readers, Christmas time is coming our way and we do have to start thinking about our Christmas decorations !

If you would love to impress your guests with a richly adorned Christmas tree this year, you absolutely will love the Christmas ornaments designed by the Belgian company Goodwill M&G.

Goodwill M&G designs and makes gorgeous seasonal decorations and accessories that are sold all over the world.

Today I take you to the house of Jean-Paul and Isabelle Meus, the owners of the Antwerp based company Goodwill.

Every year the family Meus enjoys the ritual of dressing their Christmas tree and decorating their home, by opening their treasure boxes full of glass baubles, figurines and trinkets, collected over the years.

The red walls of the entrance hall are the perfect backdrop for the ten-foot tall Christmas tree, which is dressed to impress.

The dining table is covered with a rich velvet cloth. Isabelle Meus painted the chairs in eye-catching colours.

The table candle-holders are chosen to match the dining room colour palette.

Florist Vincent Moens designed this festive artwork, which is a cluster of branches wrapped in moss and wire and hung with glass icicles.
