Christmas Decorations 2018

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.
