I have got a little carried away with Christmas decor this year, my four year old daughter is so excited by Christmas, its not hard to get caught up in all the excitement too, though I do love a bit of festive decor, so any excuse really...
The wreath is up on our newly blushed door, I am so happy I went for this pink in the end, it adds such a nice warmth to the entrance hall. I made this wreath from scratch with moss and wire as a base and built it up from there. It is quite simple this year, usually I add ribbon dried oranges etc
With an 18 week old puppy and a 2 year old in the house, the christmas tree needed to be in a room that could be shut off. It is usually always in this room, so instead I got a branch from the garden and hung it from the ceiling with some pretty baubles and snowflakes. I have had so many compliments on this and as it is unreachable no damage can be done!
I really struggled to find a garland that would go up the full length of the stairs, so had to use three in the end, luckily I got a good black Friday deal on these and any excuse to get honeycomb balls out, I had these already and love the colour pop against the black bannisters...
This style wreath was a first for me, I love all the scandi style ones that are out there at the moment, so decided to make my own and a few extra as Christmas gifts too. This is made out of preserved flowers and foliage, so should last a few years. Its always so nice to get back into a bit of floristry with my www.harpersbloom.co.uk this time of year! I set up Harpers Bloom a few years ago, but it has been taking a bit of a back seat lately, as my focus has been on interiors.
and finally the tree, which unfortunately has already had a few casualties! All glass has had to moved a fair bit higher up...
The blue room is starting to look festive and full of sparkle, just waiting for the tree... I couldn't resist putting these beautiful illuminated boubles, trees, stars and hearts out a few days early this year, to get us all in into the Christmas spirit. There is nothing more magical than lighting for children at Christmas, my daughter and sons little faces when they saw these...
I have always loved decorating mirrors, as the reflection doubles up your decor giving a striking layered effect especially when ilumintated. The picture below only has one heart and two trees, but it gives the illusion of six.
These Christmas shapes from one.world are all battery operated, which is amazing, no wires in sight. Last year I had a couple of similar stars that needed a socket and it was a nightmare trying to find a place to hang them without the endless lead making a prominent feature.
Now to get that fire roaring and think about the rest of the house and the Christmas tree, which has to be in this room too, so it can be shut off now and then from the puppy and my 20 month toddler, who would both have a field day if they got their hands on it! The rest of the decor in this house will need to have height.
I love the month of December and the warmth and cosiness it brings to all interiors you can't beat a bit of sparkle...
