Is it safe to start talking about Christmas yet…?? Hell yeah, we’ve reached mid-November with only 39 days to go until Christmas Day! I don’t know about you but I am already looking forward to the festivities ahead, no doubt this is because it will be our first Christmas in our new house since the build.
Last year, Christmas wasn’t much fun whilst living in a damp static caravan with a husband, 2 boys, 2 dogs and 2 cats, all the while 7 months pregnant! We ended up escaping it all and driving the width and breadth of the country to see our family and stay in their homes. I am confident that this year, Christmas will be a whole new experience for us. The luxury of living in a new, warm, dry home is enough for me to be super excited.
Previously, our house was fairly traditional in style so I decorated it with very traditional Christmas trimmings, using colours such as gold, red and green. Now, however, we have a much more contemporary home and as such, I am on the hunt for new Christmas decorations that will work nicely with my new decor.
My plan is to position the Christmas tree in our open-plan living space, where we spend most of our time as a family. To tie in with the colour scheme, I am going for silvers, golds and blues. Below are a few of my finds that I thought I’d share with you all. Hopefully, this will get you in the Christmas mood!
