It is around 150 days until Christmas and nobody gets more excited about this countdown  than Charlotte Garvie, the Christmas expert and owner of The Christmas Decorators, a UK-wide franchise. 

ince taking over the business in 2017 Charlotte has become renowned for creating stunning and high quality festive displays for clients across the North-east, Dundee and Edinburgh who want to embrace the magic of Christmas.

Working with her dedicated team of elves from her workshop in Banchory, she spends the majority of the year coming up with creative ideas and bringing together samples, before sourcing decorations and installing them. Her projects include everything from designing beautiful garden lighting to embellishing a ten-bedroom house from head to toe.

She explains, ‘When I had my daughter, I decided to take some time out from my busy role in the events industry to find out what I really wanted to do. The reason I got into this business is I used to put five trees up at home so I thought it would be a great idea to make it a business. I did some research and found The Christmas Decorators and I loved what
they did.’ 

Prior to buying the business in 2017 Charlotte worked in high profile events for nearly 20 years. Past events that Charlotte has had a hand in include the 2007 Free at the Dee open air concert in Aberdeen, Aberdeen’s Hogmanay Street Party from 2004 to 2008, a number of high profile corporate dinners and conferences and pharmaceutical sales conferences hosting 1500 delegates over five days.

She and her team are now starting to prepare for a busy few months as commercial and residential clients start to call on their services. Although much of the year is taken up with the design and conceptualisation of ideas the installation period is only 8 weeks long. During early November Charlotte and her team mainly install commercial clients with residential homes starting at the end of November and running right through to 23rd December. Her bespoke service includes design, installation, maintenance and removal.

As Charlotte points out, ‘Our service is both magical and seamless, just like Christmas should be.’
