{5 weeks to Christmas} Christmas Decorations

Countdown to ChristmasI love Christmas decorations! I wish I had an unlimited decoration budget – I would buy all the things – even the silly little peanut bowls with Father Christmas on and Mother and Father Christmas salt and pepper cellars!

We put up our tree last weekend and the few decorations I have, I know it is early but we are away for most of December and I love having it all up. Jack had the best fun decorating. Kiara was trying to control him but she eventually gave up and the tree looks chaotic but there is beauty in chaos.

My mom makes Christmas decor very special and very personalised.

We each have our own personalised stocking and place mats. Friends who join (with enough notice) also get their own handmade place mate which is super special.Christmas Decorations|HarassedMom (2)

While I was going through photos I found this little Father Christmas at my moms house – I think it is a toothpick holder. Clearly I get my love of all this Christmas from my mom.Christmas Decorations|HarassedMom (6)

Decorations don’t have to all be bought, I have boxes of baubles that I use to decorate around the house in vases, on cake stands.Christmas Decorations|HarassedMom (3)

I have, over the years started collecting tree decorations. I was in Woolies a few days ago and they have some really really lovely ones in store at the moment but most of mine are from markets or little craft shops when we have been away.

    My absolute favourite thing to do is to decorate our home with Christmas decorations. I always make myself wait to the first weekend of December though – perfect way to get us all in the Christmas spirit. Have been thinking of getting personalized stockings this year.

    Love Christmas time! And I decorate my house as well. Hubby sometimes gets so cross for me because I make him get to all the hard to reach places to put decorations up. Ha!

    Yes I do decorate. Nothing over the top but enough to feel festive. My only trick is I refuse to pay exorbitant prices so I always wait until after Christmas to buy decorations for the next year. That way I avoid the mad rush and save some money (actually a lot) win win
