I 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.
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.
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.
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.
Do you decorate your home?
