Stacey Solomon was one of the first celebrities to start the trend of decorating front doors in a lavish manner.

The Loose Women star pulled out all the stops for summer with a floral display, and then swapped it for her autumn offering, which she previously said she purchased during a "mid-life crisis". Well, at least it's cheaper than a sports car!

Now, she's taken down the autumnal hues of orange and brown to make way for her December masterpiece.

The front door is now adorned with multiple Christmas trees, reindeers, bows and baubles.

Of course, a front door that beautiful is the perfect backdrop for a new family photo. She gathered long-term boyfriend Joe Swash, 38, their one year old son Rex and her sons Zachary, 12, and Leighton, 8, for a snap for their photo album (and Instagram!).

As most parents know getting the shot isn’t easy, and Stacey described having to wake up her sons early and get them into matching outfits to create the image.

The 31 year old wrote alongside the photo: “Walking In A Winter Wonderland. Hello December… The winter door is finally finished. And this morning was the most beautiful sunny December day I’ve ever seen, so I woke everyone up really early just to put our matching outfits on and take a picture.”

The mum of three used smart tactics in order to get the boys posing. “Luckily it was something different from the everyday school run and I had advent calendars to persuade them so they were on board," she explained.

She also shared close ups of various parts of the display on her Instagram story, and gave a behind the scenes insight into how she put it all together.

This included adding snow to everything, and placing the lanterns and trees in position. Although little Rex wanted to clean the snow up – his mum's tidying habits are clearly rubbing off on him!

The decorations looked just as beautiful at night, so the family also went outside in the dark to have some fun together.

Stacey shared sweet photos of her sons playing together.

She ended the post on her Instagram feed by summarising the difficult year we’ve had and thanked her 3.8 million followers for their support.

“It feels like December has just come around in a flash but at the same time this year has hardly 'flown by'," she said.

"So I just wanted to say… It’s been really awful for so many over the past months and is still so hard for lots… I’m so sorry for all those who have struggled and for all of the heartache and loss of this year. I’m so thankful for you all.

" Every single message, bit of kindness, the laughs and the tears. You made this year such a special one for us so far, and we couldn’t have done some days without you. Love you to the moon and back. from Me, Joe and ALL of our boys.”
