This is it folks. We’re standing on the threshold of December. The festive season is nearly upon us – and I, for one, am ready to embrace it with open arms. Christmas: come on in. The Great Tree Dilemma is currently the hot topic du jour in my house. We have a very enquiring, exceedingly mobile 15 month old. We also like our trees to be BIG. Chances of him pulling it over? Do we sally forth regardless or get something rather smaller and raise it up? Once we’ve solved this minor issue, here’s how we’ll be decorating…
The White Company is Christmas as far as I’m concerned. This year, I have my eye on the mini pomanders (I am easily drawn towards a Christmassy scent) and these delicate white bells. This bauble has a festive sentiment of which I wholly approve – and quite frankly, who doesn’t want a gilded pineapple or two hanging on their tree? I love decking my home with the white paper snowflakes from RE – and these ‘snowball puffs‘ are pretty special, too. You can personalise these blackboard baubles from Cox & Cox – and whilst you’re there, do check out their festive collection – these copper and white baubles are heavenly and this advent calendar would last for years. The wrapping section is well worth casting an eye over – if only for inspiration. We’ve already discussed my pom pom preoccupation – so this is nigh on irresistible – although stars are always a winner and this says exactly what it ought to.
