Beckhams spend thousands on Christmas decorations

20 December 2013, 07:10

London -  Victoria and David Beckham have spent £50 000 (R850 000) on Christmas decorations.

The couple reportedly called in prestigious department store Fortnum & Mason to deck out the mansion they are currently renting in west London and the lavish festive makeover took two days to complete.

According to heat magazine, Victoria, 39, and David, 38, didn't waste time untangling Christmas lights or picking their own tree, as the couple had a creative director who "visualised the concept" for their gold and white themed display.

The elaborate decorations include three large Christmas trees, two smaller ones and a number of designer accessories that reportedly "look like diamonds".

As well as the Fortnum's makeover, Victoria, 39, also ordered her personal assistants to scour stores in fashion capitals such as New York and Paris in a bid to find the perfect decorations such as specially commissioned Lalique baubles and Swarovski crystal stars which cost £1 500 each.

Victoria was determined to make the house as Christmassy as possible for the couple's kids Brooklyn,14, Romeo,11, Cruz, eight, and Harper, two, and decided money was no object when it came to this year's holidays.
