Christmas QuestSome people may want to punch me right now but I'm already starting to prepare for Christmas. Dave and I have always been lucky enough to spend Christmas at other people's homes. When I was single, I basically went wherever my mum and dad were. This year we're having Christmas at our place!
I'm in charge of decoration and atmosphere and Dave is in charge of the food (phew!). I've pretty much decided on a winter wonderland theme with splashes of colour - which basically means lots of white background stuff and some multicoloured accessories. The table in this picture would be perfect! Pity it's about £500.
I love snow and I think these have got a pretty modern feel to them. I plan to concentrate them on a corner of the window. I should mention athat the space I've got to work with is very small. It basically consists of one rectangular shaped room about 5m by 3m (my living room). I live in a tiny flat and it's quite funny we're considering having six people for dinner here at all - but I'm up for the challenge!
I would have preferred smooth and shiny rather than glittery but I think these will look great on a white tablecloth.
Now, as I am not made of money, my quest has led me to many things that I've had to pass up along the way. I love this wooden reindeer advent calendar. It has little drawers to store treats.
Not only is it hard to find multicoloured baubles this year but it is also hard to find multicoloured Christmas crackers. These would be perfect but at £40 for six, they're a bit too rich for my blood.
Whew! This turned into a mammoth post. Thanks for sticking with me. I'll update with more ideas as they happen.
