Stonor house

A wonderful time

For generations the Stonor Family have delighted in decorating Stonor House for Christmas each year.  For the last four years they have opened the doors of Stonor for everyone to enjoy the decorations which are put together with the Head Gardener and Park team and well-known and gifted florist Sue Bailey West.  The decorations change each year and in 2019 Stonor will be decorated for 'A Candlelit Christmas'.

The process of decorating Stonor for Christmas starts many months ahead, with holly, mistletoe, sweet scented pine and other greenery carefully selected from the estate to suit each year’s theme.  It is then cut before the birds get to the berries and placed in water to await transformation into beautiful natural Christmas decorations.

For A Candlelit Christmas, Stonor will have been made ready for a wonderful Christmas candlelit evening party with open fires roaring, candles just lit and a magnificent 20ft Victorian decorated Christmas Tree in the Gothic Hall laden with sparkling decorations gathered from the family’s travels around the world.

This year Stonor has also teamed up with ‘Country Homes and Interiors’ Magazine, the UK’s premier magazine dedicated to modern country life and style, whose stylists will direct the decoration of The Blue Dining Room to showcase their own interpretation of the Candlelit Christmas theme.
