A Christmassy Update

This weekend we (finally!) got round to setting up our Christmas decorations. I would have done it on the 1st of December – or sooner – but we always get a real Christmas tree, and since our little car is too small to pick one up ourselves, we had to wait til we could get someone to take us to pick ours.

After about four hours (I kid you not!) deciding on a tree, we took our 8ft beauty home to decorate! Here it is in pride of place in our living room bay window.

I love making the house feel Christmassy, and each year I find myself adding a few extra pieces to our collection, either for the tree or to put up around the house. here are a few of my favourite little Christmassy bits.

I got this one last year super cheap and love it as a bit of a little show piece for our tree.

I picked these up a few weeks ago in Sainsburys for about Β£4/5 each and absolutely love them. So cute.

I love anything to do with reindeer and these glittery ones were from the pound shop! Such a find. This banner is also a favourite – I love how christmassy it makes our living room look.

I have so many decorations for our tree that I love – from little bits I’ve had for years, to ornaments bought for me from loved ones

Have you got your decorations up yet? Do you have any favourite Christmassy pieces?

    4 hours? Wow! Although it does look like it was worth it, your tree is lovely!
