At the weekend hubby and I spent the time getting the decorations ready for Christmas. I like to have it done early so you have it longer to look at. I am sure some of you can’t agree more with me on that.
Especially when it is a hassle every year to get the decorations down from the attic. This was hubby’s job this year with me being 31 weeks pregnant. Good excuse.
Let me start off with the Christmas tree…
This had to go into the kitchen this year because I invested in a good book shelf which is taking up the corner of the Christmas tree now. But really I like the way where it is now. So cosy. Our Christmas tree is always decorated with silver and red baubles. That’s the theme every year. At the top we have white lights and at the bottom multicolored ones.We don’t put anything on the top of the tree actually. I have never even thought about it. Looks more natural without it in my opinion.
Then there’s the mantel piece…
Decorated with little Snowman and Santa figures and some lovely lights going across. Of course the stockings can’t be missing.
This lovely candle I added on the last 2 Christmases. My mum gave it to me. I love it. It is a battery operated candle. I added a few pines and some little bits onto it and 2 reindeer’s around. Cute isn’t it?
The only thing I haven’t done so far is put the lights on the tree outside and on the door. This was planned for today but we are expecting a very bad storm. It is battering down right now actually. So hopefully by the weekend I will get a chance to put those up and show them to you, too.
Have you put your decorations up yet? I’d like to see you pictures. If you have blogged about it, a link would be great, too.
