I tell you one of the best things about having your own house, decorating for Christmas! Now I have always been a big fan of Christmas, one of those people who’s festivities start as soon as Halloween is over, but that feeling has multiplied tenfold now I get to decorate my own home.
The real mark of Christmas for me is the tree, my Mum has always been the person to trim the tree at home, but this year it was down to me and Matt. Maybe I put a little too much thought in to it (I even had my own Pinterest board) but I eventually settled on a gold, silver and bronze theme.
We decided to get an artificial tree as opposed to a real one, as I didn’t want to deal with pine needles falling all over the floor, and also they all looked a little bald this year. I got mine from Homebase in the black friday deal, so I got an additional 25% off. I also got the majority of my decorations from Homebase, they were such great value (some even as low as £5.99) and then styled it up a little with some statement ones from Matalan and the cutest Etsy shop called Design by Cat.
I finally topped off my tree with this black and white ribbon bow I picked up from eBay and also matched this with my wreath.
I’m completely ready for Christmas now! 18 sleeps to go…
