Decorating the House for Christmas
The funnest time of the year is when we all get to bring trees into our homes and dress them. And each year creates opportunities to buy new, beautiful decorations that you can store away and bring out each year, until you have a collection of ornaments that really mean something to you.
This year, after wandering into Selfridges Christmas Shop on the fourth floor in London, I was immediately ready for the Christmas festivities. I got far too excited over all of the shiny, glittery decorations, personalised baubles and Santa sacks, and decided then that I had to buy some of my decorations from Selfridges. If you haven’t been in there already, you definitely should have a peek, especially if you’re not feeling ready for Christmas yet. It’s so pretty and magical!
Anyway, buying my decorations from Selfridges was exactly what happened, and I wanted to share all of the pretty pieces I picked up, just in case you need to buy a few more festive decorations! Here are my beautiful festive finds…
Mixing a number of shapes and tones, primarily whites, silvers and a touch of coppers, created a bright and fresh, Christmassy finish without being the traditional reds and greens. I love these tones together!
Placing ornaments and decorations around the house is one of my favourite things about Christmas; it really doesn’t have to be all about the tree. I adore having small candle holders placed here and there, and lit up every night in the evening to cast beautiful shadows across the room. So festive!
I’m in love with these really unusual hanging decorations! They’re totally unique and something to catch your eye on the tree.
And for those little festive extras, I picked up a few more pieces for wrapping, an advent calendar, paper straws for Christmas Parties and some crystal stars for wrapping around door frames or for window ledges
What themes are you loving for Christmas this year? I hope you’re all enjoying December!
