The month of December is by far, my most favourite time of the year.
Dragging the Christmas decorations out of the loft and decorating the house with Maddy is a very special few days.
Now she is older (almost 15!) she insists on playing her collection of Christmas music and loves the process of decorating as much as me – and for the most part, the boys leave us to it.
Last year, in January – I had picked up some new tinsel in the sales – pink tinsel. Some of my most favourite decorations are ones that I picked up in the clearance section of a Tulsa boutique, beautiful whimsical candyland decorations.
It has been an idea in my head for years that I would like to decorate the whole Christmas tree in a candyland theme – and pink tinsel seemed to be the first step.
After Christmas I will shop the sales with that theme in mind and over the course of the year think about how I can make decorations myself.
