The first weekend of December is always the most special for a little Christmas elf like myself because in our house its tree time! In one short weekend, our house transforms from an everyday home to a wonderland of fairy lights, glitter, sparkle and Christmas cheer!
Pride of place in our hallway is the Christmas tree, but while many people opt for colour schemes, or at least some sort of order to their decorations, we have a mismatched tree of memories. Every time we go somewhere, we buy a tree decoration, so our tree reflects our family to a tee, while it may be the nightmare of Christmas perfectionists! Of course, at least half our decorations are Disney!
Next to the tree is my Christmas grotto, filling the remaining space under the stairs, and the threading of our (now fairly raggedy) holly tinsel up the banisters is a long-standing tradition in our house!
And all the free-standing creatures..
We always hang decorations from the ceiling in our dining room, and this year Mum and Dad bought these gorgeous glass balloons which I’m obsessed with!
And another new addition from Disneyland Paris this year!
I’ll be sharing more Christmas decorations on my Instagram account, mainly because I could take up several blog posts with all the photos I could take!
Is your house looking nice and festive?
