The Weekend Before Christmas

festive bunting

Nearly there! Christmas is less than a week away but this year I have been struggling to feel properly Christmassy, perhaps because of the unseasonaly warm weather. That is until this weekend when I recieved a festive package from White Stuff with a lovely tunic and some Christmas goodies which definitely got me in the Christmas spirit. The Ho Ho Ho bunting is probably my favourite Christmas decoration ever and definitely beats a bit of old tinsel, although we have plenty of that too.

White Stuff clothing are made from high quality ethically sourced materials. They are also members of the ethical trade initiative. White Stuff also donate 1% of their profits to local charities as well as time and material support. I know I will be getting lots of wear out this tunic.

It is a family tradition for us to get a new Christmas decoration for both of the girls for the tree each year. Over the years we have built up quite a collection of Christmas decorations which are also contributed to by grandmas, friends and teachers at school aswell as some homemade ones. The children usually decorate the Christmas tree with the help of Mr S to untangle the fairy lights. I don’t like a Christmas tree to look too neat and tidy, I much prefer a really busy mish mash of colour and different decorations which is quite lucky as that is how it always turns out. The branches of our tree are practically creaking under the strain of all the decorations!

These lovely little fellas from White Stuff are the perfect addition to our ‘interesting’ Christmas tree. I am particularly in love with the mouse in his cute little scarf.

Do you like lots of decorations on your Christmas tree or do you have more of a minimalist aproach?

I have had a lovely post Christmas weekend, spending time with family and friends. What have you been up to the weekend before Christmas?
