Now that they are all up it's starting to feel a lot more like christmas at home. Well they are nearly all, there's a few bits left to do including some stockings I'm making myself (complete with jingle bells!) that need the tops putting on them but other than that it's pretty much done! We don't have much, we've only been leaving together for just over a year and this is our second christmas living together (6th as an actual couple though which is rather scarey!).
I'm a bit particular when it comes to my decorations. For starters I have to do the tree and you can't just chuck everything on it needs to be balanced. Oh and everything has to be red and gold. No exceptions, my colour scheme is red and gold which in my eyes just screams christmas and that's final... no other colours are allowed to sneak in no matter how cute the decoration is!
So now do you want to see some pictures? Of course you do!
This completely gorgeous chap was bought a little earlier on this year when christmas decorations first started appearing in the shops again. I couldn't resist him he's soooo cute! He's actually meant to be a tree topper I think but they had him sat on a stair rail like this in the shop and I thought he'd be just perfect for our stairs.
The majority of our decorations are in the living room and are all kinda grouped round the fireplace as I always find that fires remind me of christmas anyway.
This has got to be my favourite photo out of all those I took, I love these Baubles anyway, they are so lush and opulent and there's just something about this shot that I really like!
This beautiful wire angel is also meant to be a tree topper but I thought she was just perfect for my fireplace (along with the cool metal reindeer I bought last year - no photo of those but if you look carefully at the shot with the fireplace in it you can see them on the other side of the mantel piece).
And finally the bauble tree, I picked this up this year and it's to go in the dining room as something a little bit different. It does however break my rule of only red and gold as the tree itself is silver... but that's not the actual decoration is it? Afterall my big tree is green isn't it... Or am I just making excuses now and before I know it I'll have a multicoloured chirstmas!
