Deck the Halls

Finally! We have had our decorations up for weeks…but now I can finally show them to you without feeling completely crazy.

We had to buy a big tree, as our little 4fter looked a little lost in our big house living room.

I was also very excited about having a mantel to dress!

I used baubles, broken down faux foliage candle surrounds from a musty box at Mama Pigeons, bits of old gift bags, real fir cones found in the countryside, heaps of beads and some reindeer (flat and glittery!).

To celebrate the new tree and the new house, we decided to buy some special baubles as well as some more regular ones. I love having ‘special’ baubles and bits for the tree….you get to relive the memories every year when you dress the tree. Some of our bits are my parents tree decs that I can remember loving as a child. I adore the mix of old and new, bought and handmade.

What is the favourite thing on your tree? Do you top with an angel or a star?

We are star people….
