I am one of those people that you read about on Twitter and Facebook – y’know the ones, they’re usually being complained about by everyone else for getting their Christmas tree up mid-November and being FAR too jolly about the festive season.
But I just can’t help it. I love this time of year, and I just don’t care who knows it. Bring on the disapproving looks from neighbours as the twinkly lights sparkle away in my window, I love decorating for Christmas.
And I’m making the most of it, because I know as Ada gets older, she’ll turn into one of those kids that doesn’t want the decorations up until after her birthday because “it detracts the focus”, and she’s born six days before Christmas.
Along with my Comfort Works IKEA sofa covers, I was sent a lovely little selection of their new Christmas accessories. They are absolutely up my street; mostly a combination of scandinavian styles, minimalist designs, and of course, lots of gold!
My heart skipped a beat when I saw the marble and gold coasters especially – so dreamy. The little gold star snack dish is perfect for storing festive treats too, and making sure I don’t go too overboard!
I’ve mostly stuck to a pink, white and metallic theme throughout, except for my beloved vintage baubles adorning the tree. Speaking of which, I went real for the first time this year and I am so happy with it – I don’t think I can ever go back to my faux ways!
How have you decorated for Christmas?
