Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Christmas Show


In December last year I was asked to take part in the Christmas tree challenge on Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Christmas TV show! It was such an exciting opportunity and I was really looking forward to seeing what the production side of a TV show was like.

Raise the Roof Productions were amazing. Such a cool, energetic team of people who made us all feel comfortable from the start. We filmed at Blenheim Palace- a monumental country house situated in Oxfordshire. The palace is quite literally one of the most breathtaking places I have ever visited in the UK. It’s huge! and the grounds are like something out of a story book.

My fellow contestants in the Xmas tree challenge were: Lin Warwick an incredible visual merchandiser, Sarah Puckett is the owner of Puckett’s Pickles– an award winning pickle company based in Yorkshire and the WINNER Rika who is a Finnish creative who makes her all her own clothes in the most incredible fabrics and styles. It was tough competition!

Then there was Kirstie- she is so fabulous! Funny, smart and so confident- I kinda want to be her when I grow up…

I don’t know what my future holds but I certainly want it to include more TV! Watch this space 😉
