I am combining today’s post with a WFMW post. If you have not been here in a while, welcome to my world, and welcome to my attempt at daily blogging about Christmas until 24th December. If you don’t want to miss any of it (!) please subscribe by email or feed. If you have even more time, read back through my other December posts. Thanks!
Tonight I am sharing how I have used some bells and baubles to decorate for Christmas. I rarely seem to add baubles to the Christmas tree, but often display them in a tall vase. You can see what I did with them last year in this post.
I am pleased with the effect, and will probably do more like this next year, maybe as a centre piece for the table on Christmas Day. For this year however, this bowl is on my hearth. This is my Works for Me Wednesday post.
I did say I did not tend to use baubles on the Christmas tree, but I had forgotten about this mini tree, which I bought in the Next sale last year. A bit more modern and trendy than my usual sort of Christmas decor, but I like it!
Another favourite christmas decoration are bells, and the kids love to play with them, especially while singing Jingle Bells.
I have a few bells on both the kids tree and the “good” tree, but I also chose to display some in wine glasses. These mini bells I purchased in The Pier.
And I love the festive red of these ones.
So what decorations do you like to use?
Today was a busy hectic day with helping with snack at the Nursery School, school pick-ups, eldest child had party at the swimming pool, meeting at school about a forthcoming school trip, then the whole family back to the Nursery School for my son’s Christmas “concert”. It was not really a concert, but can’t think how else to describe it. It was lovely, with the Christmas story being read, and some Christmas carolls sung, followed by hot chocolate and shortbread.
Planning a quieter day tomorrow. Hope you can come back and join me then.
