December is here and festive time has started. I have heard that we are expecting a white Christmas this year in London. From what I know, this has only happened four times in the last 51 years! So I am praying for a white Christmas. Just thinking about being home and watching the snow fall makes me feel all loved up. Like every year, I make an effort to decorate the house and welcome the snuggly festive season. This year I haven’t managed to do much- just a few decorative setups to make the house look Christmassy.
Decor 1 – Golden sparkly pine cones display.
This is a very simple decor idea and kid-friendly too. To create this setupp
- Get some pine cones from your local flower shop or order them on Amazon. FloristryWarehouse Pine Cones 4-7cm 1Kg (x 55) Dried Natural
- Get some metallic gold paint and gold sparkle from a hobby/craft shop or Amazon. DecoArt Americana Acrylic Metallic Paint, Glorious Gold
- Involve the kids and ask them to paint the pine cones. The painting does not have to be perfect because we will cover it with gold sparkle. 100G MIXED GLITTER NAIL ART CRAFT FLORISTRY WINE GLASS
- This a very simple decor idea and you can use the decorated pine cones in various ways. I have used it as my Christmas dining table centrepiece.
Decor 2 – Small Christmas Tree Set up
If you’re fed up of picking out pine needles from your floor after the festive season, then Christmas tree in a pot is worth considering. I bought mine from our local florist. I personally do not like artificial Christmas trees and have always bought real ones. This year I wanted to try a compact option and create a mini Christmas set up. After personally trying both big and small Christmas trees, I would advise to set up a big tree to get a grand look and potted tree for a mini, hassle-free decor.
This year I plan to decorate my table with red and gold Christmas theme. Both are very rich colours and create a royal look. Everyone has their unique way of decorating and this is my take on table setup. On actual Christmas day, I will add more candles and use Christmas crackers.
I hope you managed to set up your Christmas tree and had fun decorating it. I would love to see your tree pictures so do share it with me on social media. And finally, this will be my last post for this year and I hope to see you guys soon in the new year. Till then have a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year. Keep shining and stay fabulous.
