I had planned to do a speed decorating video of me doing the tree but it didn’t quite work out what with the absolutely hectic end to last week so I thought I would share some pictures and tell you where I got some of our Christmas decorations from in a post instead!
I decided to go with a white and silver theme this year. It is one I have wanted to do for a while and I really love how it has turned out! My tree is fake, it is from Tesco and is pre-lit. This year I decided to not add any extra lights and I think just the simple white lights look perfect with the decorations I have added.
The boys received these silver name decorations as gifts (Riley has one too but for some reason the photo didn’t load). Then I had to make sure their first Christmas ones were on there. They both have baby Mickey decorations which came from Disneyland Paris.
I love these decorations and they were only £1 each from Wilko. I had seen the same ones in another store for £3.99 each, the plastic was a little tougher on them but otherwise they looked exactly the same. I thought these were super pretty though.
Asda did a huge set of white and silver baubles and it was only £4, such a bargain. It had glitter, plain and other designs which were prefect additions to the tree.
These two were also from Asda and were £1 each. I really love the silver one and it looks great on the tree, especially with the lights on!
This silver unicorn was from Primark earlier this year. It was in the home sale section and I grabbed it as I thought it would be perfect for the Christmas tree.
These snowflakes were also from Asda. It was a pack of eight and they were £!. I didn’t add the strings, I just popped them in the tree and they stay stuck by themselves.
I visited one of those Christmas pop up shops in Derby City Centre a couple of weeks ago and got these decorations from there. I really enjoyed getting lots of different textures of decoration for the tree this year. With the simple silver and white colour scheme I think the textures make it look really special. There are six of the jingle bells and they really do ring!
These baubles are part of a set of six, which are all in white and grey and feature a reindeer deign. They were from B & M and I love that they are hung on ribbon too.
The silver stars were some that I got a few years ago, but I added the white ones as well this year which were from Asda. I believe there were about five in the packet and I think they look lovely.
Aside from the tree I have a few other bits to show you. These light were £1 each from a little shop which sells everything in Halifax. They are actually from Tiger, which is a shop I have recently discovered in Derby and I love! I got three but need to replace the batteries as only one worked from the start and that has now given up too! The bulbs flicker which give a nice candle like effect. Our light box is now displaying festive messages and some of our Christmas teddies are also on display on the bookcase.
I was super excited to get some mistletoe this year, and it was only £1 from Asda. I have hung it in the doorway between the hallway and living room. Lots of Christmas kisses this year!
Both of these (the vase and Potpourri) are from HomeSense. The vase has housed an Autumn candle on our coffee table till now but I have added this Christmas scented potpourri which smells amazing!
The boys stockings are also up and I have added their Wilko Blox Calendar which you may have seen me post about on social media already. Super fab and fun and it was only £8, so very impressed! There are also some Christmas candles about the place. I got some scented Christmas tree sticks and have a couple in the tree to make it smell lovely too. I picked them up from Poundstretcher and there are about 8 in there so I can replace when the scent wears off.
So that is how our house looks so far with the decorations. I hope you enjoyed this post and are enjoying Blogmas so far. I am posting every day of December till Christmas and if you haven’t seen it already you can see day four here
