I won't have many Christmas posts for you this year as I'm a busy new mommy, but here is my home decor for Christmas :) It's a little pathetic but we build more each year and I'm definitely going to be assessing after this year because I think it's pretty pathetic ;) I'll make one of my 'famous' lists for next year, get out early and stock up on what I think will add some more Christmas cheer to our little house :)
As it's baby's first Christmas I haven't had much time to decorate or much money to get more decorations, or even get out to the shops to look!! Also, I don't have room to store all our decorations so more just isn't an option at the moment until I figure out a better storage solution than cardboard boxes and plastic bags!!
|Light up Santa (lights can flash or stay set)|
|Hanging ladder with Santa's|
|Close up of our personalised decorations from 2013 and 2014|
|Our kitchen set up! Train lights up (we need batteries and a screwdriver ;))|
|Mini White Christmas Tree with baubles, and our three 'homeless' snowmen!|
|Our fireplace in the sitting room - full of new baby cards at the mo ;)|
|New decoration for Alex's first Christmas from his Nana|
|'My First Christmas' stocking from Mothercare - gift from Aunty Bethany and one of our stockings :) Held on the mantlepiece by snowman and Christmas tree from Dunnes Stores.|
|Our Christmas Tree, wrapped presents and new tree skirt (from Primark)|
|Tinkerbell Tree Topper from the Disney Store - poor Tink lost her wings!|
We also have a big tube of different blue shaded and silver baubles which I normally put in a vase or hang strategically around the house but I'm just not that bothered this year! Also, I bought a floor mat with Santa and Raindeer on it from Primark but I haven't been able to find the right place to put it so it doesn't get filthy dirty from shoes!! lol
Next year I hope to get:
A garland for the mantlepiece or in front of the TV.
Some sort of outdoor decoration/lights or window stickers or something to make the front of the house look Christmassy!
A personalised family decoration with baby, mommy and daddy on it!
A few more different decorations for the tree! We mainly have baubles, a few stars and we also have glitter covered acorns but I hate using them because glitters gets everywhere so it's very annoying :/
With a baby who is more than likely going to start pulling at decorations next year I will have to be smart with what decorations we use and where we put stuff. I'll worry about that next year ;)
Lots of Love
