For many of us, this weekend will be the time that we fill our homes with festivity – choosing the tree, bringing decorations out of their boxes, and searching the stores for new beautiful ornaments to decorate our homes with. This year, Charlie and I decided to invest in some beautiful traditional Christmas ornaments, the types that you bring out year after year, and fortunately for us, John Lewis had a dazzling selection to choose from, including some beauties which had already gone down into the sale.
We opted for a mixture of gold and white Christmas Tree baubles – our tree is a colourful selection of ornaments which each hold treasured memories, and the extra sprinkling of white and gold gave the tree a more luxurious feel.
We also chose a few baubles and ribbons to decorate a garland which we decorate our stair banister with, as well as an unusual jingle-bell wreath ornament (just £3.15!), and matching white and gold party crockery in preparation for our annual Christmas Jumper party!
Finally, we decided to treat ourselves to some new lounge additions to add a cosy and warm feel to the living areas, including a small selection of faux fur cushions and a sumptuous throw perfect for those chilly evenings.
I’d love to know which of these are your favourites and how you are decorating your home for Christmas!
