It's exactly a month until Christmas! Well, even closer when this post goes live. Who's excited?
If you're not feelin' the Christmas vibes yet, I suggest you get yourself into a Tiger store near you ASAP. I dunno what it is about that shop but as soon as the festivities line the aisles, I become a sucker for anything seasonal buying Santa pegs, christmas tree socks and tinsel. Last weekend an impromptu visit to Tiger, snapping up every santa glittery thing in sight cued a wee crafty Christmas evening at my place later that eve, glass of rioja and some Christmas Lindt choccies in hand.
I made some pom poms from tissue paper, ready for hanging with invisible thread (once it's December mind, when it's officially ok to do anything decorative) and I also spent the eve creating a pinterest board of Christmas ideas to get in the festive spirit. It was so much fun. Start one too, start one too!
Anyway, it's usually around this time in November that the family debate between 'real tree or fake tree?' starts, and we begin to buy all the little trinkets to make the house and Christmas tree look extra special. I thought I'd share some things that I'm excited to hang on my tree this year, and add to my house to spread Christmas cheer.
If you're looking for cute decoration ideas, you've come to the right place ;)
Did you see my recent instagram post armed with presents as far as the eye can see? Well here are some sneak peeks inside a few of those, courtesy of my friends at Edited in Brighton (more about this AMAZING brand coming in a post very soon).
Christmas really had come early that evening! Check out these fantastic bright silver reflector baubles in all different colours from Edited's Christmas collection. They are the glittery pop every tree needs to look extra special this Christmas, and I think they'll spin real nice once hung on the branches, catching the light.
Can you tell I can't wait to get decorating?!
In fact if you're on the market for quirky decs to jazz up your tree, Edited have an unmissable selection in stock... Look, it's a Christmassy sausage dog :)
They also have a really out-there FAB selection of neon baubles, that look really cute all piled up in my glass vase ready to jazz up the decorative fireplace or kitchen counter. I want to add battery-powered fairy lights inside for extra wow, but love how it looks as it is. Such a cool focal point to the room during the festive season, and a great idea for when you have baubles left over or fancy a different colour scheme in different parts of the house.
Another Fifi finest - has anyone ever thought to put cute gift tags as paper decorations on a tree? - thank me and my bright ideas later. Ha. These quirky little gift tags from Edited are too nice to write all over. I want to keep them for myself, so I've decided to hang several on the top branches to give a my tree a 'handmade' feel :)
But wait, before you go off and splash cash on the most wonderful time of the year, just look at how adorable the sausage dog gift tag is when not used as a Christmas tree decoration! I'm in awe.
*squeals with excitement*
It's the little things. I love Edited.
