Christmas Preparations - DIY wreath

I thought I would share how I have prepared the house for the festivities! 

Decoration

This year I made another wreath for our door but this time for the inside. You really can add anything you like to your own DIY wreath and its super easy! I collected together old Christmas decorations and vintage brooches to add a unique edge to mine. My auntie gave me a selection of holly which had yellow berries to match in with my colour theme in the room already. To finish off I wired in some battery operated fairy lights.

We opted for a real mini tree to go in the big open space we have ready for the wood burner and I just added fairy lights and a turquoise star on the top.Elsewhere I highlighted areas with more battery operated fairy lights which as you can see from the photos really make the place feel so christmasy and cosy. Oh and the large wooden star in the window adds a focal point! It was super super cheap from Asda!

Festive food and drink
We organised a little festive get together with some friends so I thought I would also share a few photos from that too. We set the dining table up with plates of nibbles and a little bar area in the kitchen adding fairy lights behind the bottles to make it look extra festive and merry! 


I would love to see how you decorate for Christmas so be sure to link any blog posts or Instagram profiles below.I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and I am looking forward to sharing the start of the kitchen makeover in the new year.
