This is one of my smaller Christmas village displays, showing that you really don't need a lot of space to create something that looks quite impressive and imposing. The village has been laid out on the top of a cupboard, although to make more room for the layout, I used a substantial piece of old kitchen worktop as a base, covered with artificial grass. This extra depth meant that there was plenty of room to do some landscaping at the front, including a choir singing in the gazebo and an ice skating pond / rink to one side.
In the centre is a single plastic mountain, which is a useful way to create tiers of height. The flat platforms mean that it is easy to position the houses, while there are holes in the mountains so that any wires can be neatly tucked out of sight. Although I used lots of Christmas trees of various sizes, I placed the rotating Lemax Majestic Christmas Tree at the front, where it formed a really festive centrepiece without dominating the layout too much. A quick spray of fake snow was a finishing touch for the display, making it look nice and frosty.
