The Christmas Decoration Dilemma

Deciding on a Christmas decoration theme can be quite stressful…. the colour combinations, themes, shapes and patterns are endless. It is hard to know where to start.

Do you stay traditional? Introduce some different colours? Change your decorations to be a little more modern, hand made or something that represents your personality a little more?

We are hosting Christmas this year – 13 adults and 2 toddlers… so I have started thinking about the table setting, menu and decorations.

Seeing as we will be having a coastal Christmas in our new home, I was thinking we might theme the decorations accordingly… turquoise, silver, white?

If you are mulling over how to decorate your home or the tree this year, I have collected a selection of my favourite options below (I am also building a Christmas pin board on Pinterest.com) to help get the creative juices flowing – or perhaps some egg nog could have a similar effect – up to you!.
