Creating Christmas!

 Christmas is undoubtedly my favourite time of the year EVER. Last year we bought our first house, and the most exciting thing was being able to decorate it how we wanted! I knew I always wanted a tree which had snow tips (until I now have one and realise how MESSY they are, blimey!). The tree was actually from Homebase. I've checked the website and they haven't re-stocked this tree this year, but, there are some very similar ones available. It's a 7ft tree and I just love it!

All of our baubles are either white, silver or grey. We got the majority of our decorations at places like garden centres, The Range, B&M, and they were all so reasonably priced. The star topper is from Asda, but that was a last minute mad rush buy, and I'm not too keen on it still.

We have some gorgeous red and white striped stockings which hang over our 'fireplace', These were also from Homebase. Super cute.

The bauble with my name on it and the gorgeous glittery bauble box are made by my friend Lorna. She honestly makes some of the most gorgeous products I have ever seen. She runs Pebbles and Pearls through Facebook and can personalise almost any item you ask. Check out her business here!

I managed to pick up the cute Christmas countdown board and the gingerbread man sweet tray (which is obviously covered in celebrations because let's be honest, Christmas is incomplete without them!) from a pop-up store. The store is based in Norwich in Norfolk, and is a temporary Christmas store. It had some of the most festive stock. I have seen some similar things in general home stores like B&M, so you may be able to pick up something similar!

I also managed to grab some silver standing tress from the same shop which you may be able to see on my coffee table. On our small windowsill we have a bauble tree decorative which I picked up from B&Q and this came in a variety of colours.

On our little dining room table I have a Gingerbread shaped cage which is filled with potpourri. This was from Asda, Although it isn't online, I have seen it in lots of stores, so keep an eye out for this! And next to the Gingerbread man is a beautiful rounded vase with detailed holly and acorns covering the outside. I have filled this with acorns and berries for a festive touch! (Again from Asda, they honestly do the best Christmas homeware!)

And last but not least I have my favourite selection of Yankee Candles to fit in with the Christmas festivities! We have Black Cherry in the kitchen which is so gorgeous and honestly smells like Christmas in a jar! Now, in the living room we have the Yankee Christmas Treats. This is a candle that is part of the Asda Yankee range. This candle was discontinued last year, and I was genuinely heartbroken. It was one of those candles that was lit the whole year round. This year Asda have released a Santa's treats. It's a good dupe and very similar. It's a sweet vanilla baking smell. So bloomin' good!

I hope you have enjoyed my house decorations for this year, I would love to see some of your decorations. Don't forget you can now find me here on twitter!
