This will be Hubby and I’s fifth Christmas living together and our second in our little family home, after four years of the same tree and decorations I’ve decided to change it up a little. As always I’ve been spending some (a lot) of time over on Pinterest getting some inspiration so I thought I’d share a little post of my favourite ideas.
For the past few years our tree has been decorated with black, silver and Nightmare Before Christmas Baubles. This year I know I am going to keep my Disney baubles (they’ll never go) but I also wanted to have a more wintery feel to our decorations. I love the early dark nights and cooler days of Winter so I want to celebrate this with our Christmas decorations this year.
I adore the cosy feel of this Scandinavian style Christmas decor, the white and grey is so simple yet inviting and sophisticated, unfortunately we don’t have a fireplace in our home now we live in a new build but I could definitely see ways of incorporating this style in the way of throws and blankets.
Although I’m not usually a fan of tinsel, the fluffy white tinsel in this instantly had me thinking of soft white snow and I love all the animals hiding amongst the decorations.
This little animal wonderland is just gorgeous, I’m loving the slightly ‘rustic’ feel and think the Owl Tree Topper adds a little something different and special. With two small children I definitely want to have some fun elements in the decorations and adding a few cute animal ornaments could do the trick.
I’m really drawn to the darker colours in this Nordic Christmas decor, it really looks like a cosy Winter’s night in. This could really achievable with just a few dark blue or grey baubles and a soft fluffy rug too.
The blue and brown in this is a pleasant twist to the usual white winter wonderland, living in the South West we rarely get snow so actually this feels truer to Winter for me.
We have now treated ourselves to a few new decorations and Christmas tree. I cannot wait to put it all together whilst enjoying a delicious hot chocolate and listening to some wonderful Christmas tunes and I’ll definitely be sharing the finished result on here too. Willow is now asking daily to put up the tree so I can definitely see a few small Christmas decorations appearing over the next couple of days and weeks before we go full on Christmas mode with the tree.
Do you have a Christmas decor theme and when is it acceptable to put up the Christmas tree in your house?
