It’s beginning to look a lot like…
I’m so excited to put this post together. Christmas is a great time of year and I love decorating my house for the festive period. I’ve been dying to show you the finished results, and have resited posting all over Instagram for the moment. Our house is quite small, so I limit which rooms I have decorated for Christmas. At the moment, I limit to the living room being the main spot and a few other decorations dotted throughout the house. The plan is one day to have a big house that I can pretty much decorate every single room. That’s the dream I will have one day.
For now, let me talk you through the living room and how I have decorated it for Christmas…
This year, I went for a seven-foot tree rather than the usual six-foot. I think it suits the room quite nicely. We’re lucky enough to have tall ceilings in this house, so the room can take it. This tree was a bargain from B&Q, not exactly the tree of my dreams but it will do for now. I love the darker trees, I think they look more realistic than the brighter colours.
I love a simply decorated tree, so I like to finish the tree off with warm coloured lights and baubles. My lights are from John Lewis, they bring the same ones out every year. I’ve had them for a couple of years and they are so reliable. When you’re doing up your Christmas tree, warm lights are a must-have. They are cosy and inviting. Much better than the white lights.
Bauble wise, these are a mixture of The White Company and Homesense. There are so many different ones, that I’ve linked them all down below. Some aren’t available anymore, but I’ve linked similar ones that I hope will help if you’re wanting to do your tree in a similar style. My star on top of the tree is from John Lewis, sadly no longer available.
Finally, with the tree, I finished it off with a wicker skirt, also from The White Company. I think it helps gives the tree that cosy feel, as well as finishing off the tree. No one wants to see the legs on an artificial tree. I love how it gives the tree a rustic look, in keeping with how else we have decorated for Christmas.
Our Christmas garland on our mantle is my favourite thing in the room. It was a labour of love and I had so much fun putting it together. The main base of the garland is from B&Q, with the eucalyptus from Homesense that I cut up and stuck into the garland. I finished it off with dried oranges that make it smell amazing, as well as adding colour. Creating a garland is so easy, but if you don’t fancy creating one yourself, this one from Amazon is very similar.
The garland is finished off with Sven, who was a Homesense find, I would urge anyone to go to Homesense and check out their Christmas range- it’s amazing! Sven looks over our Christmas stockings and the rest of the decorations…
Finally, we have the finishing touches. I love having snacks out on display during the festive period. I love the idea that guests have things to snack on whilst I’m making them a cuppa. This plate is Rifle Paper Co from Anthropologie. Their new range is amazing and I so badly want to invest in some more plates.
Finally is the scent. Come November I am constantly burning candles across our home. The love of my life is the Winter candle from The White Company. It smells amazing and I get a pillar candle each year. I also have a huge collection of Neom Organic candles. Their candles are some of my favourites and their new festive range does not disappoint. Their big Christmas Wish candle is my new favourite.
And that is pretty much if for how I decorate my home for Christmas. Below is a list of the baubles that I have used/ want to use on the tree, I honestly cannot recommend them enough. They are such good quality and look amazing!
