I’m not quite finished with all my Christmassy blog posts
just yet! I wanted to show you all of my decorations and pretty festive things that we’ve got up around the house. We put your Christmas tree up the first weekend of December, but I kept on adding to it as I kept on buying new things.. oops! It’s finally finished now and I’m so happy with it.
I think it looks much better than last years (although I’ve lost my favourite gingerbread man decoration!) and it’s really full and mostly coordinating with the Nordic red and white theme. All of my Christmas decorations are bargain buys and even our Christmas tree was bought in the sale a few years back, although admittedly we could do with a new one. Here’s my photos…
The decorations are from a mix of shops; mostly Home Bargains, Poundland, and DotComGiftShop. The candy canes were only £1 for 6 from Tesco, and the stuffed felt owls are from Dunelm.
These were all from Poundland; the cottage tealight holders look beautiful lit up, and I put the star shaped fairy lights into the star dish.
My new winter bedding is super cosy and homely! The bedding set was £16 from Primark, and the tartan fleece throw was I think only £3. I added some new wintery themed cushions including the stunning red owl cushion
which matches my old purple one! It has snowflakes on the patchwork fabric and it fits in nicely. The red fairisle knitted cushion
features Christmas trees and reindeer and is really comfy. I also have the new reindeer cushions from Dunelm, one big
and one is mini
! I love my new bed layout!
I put some Poundland fairylights around my headboard on my bead which look so lovely when they’re all lit up.
I also used some Poundland fairylights to make this light up jar. It’s a really nice feature as it glows all around my room. The jar is a big pink Kilner one and the lights are battery operated so I sellotaped the battery pack to the lid so you can’t see them.
This felt Merry Christmas garland is from Poundland and I’ve hung it up in our dining room.
I love this little table we have in our dining room. I’ve decorated it using a vase of old twigs and turned it into a mini Christmas tree. I’ve also put some nice knitted ceramic candles on the table, and my family of metal reindeer. Don’t they look cute!
This little sign was only £1.49 from Home Bargains.
We have quite a few little Christmassy nik-naks on our mantlepiece, including a cute little tealight cottage which was from Poundland a few years ago, as well as some reindeer tealight holders from Dunelm. The Noel garland is old from DotComGiftShop and the floral pink reindeer head is from Flamingo Gifts.
And finally, this is my big Santa sack! I’m keeping all my pressies in it (which I still really need to wrap up!)
