When I first did a post on Heidi’s nursery (very close to a year ago, when she was born) I kept mentioning it was her temporary nursery because we were renting at the time (and the walls were a very vibrant blue which I hated). Until we had moved into the house we were building I never felt that her room was as I wanted it to be… so here it is her ‘real’ nursery, finally! Before we go any further, I must share with you a You Tube clip from a TV show called Portlandia. I haven’t seen this show (or even heard of it, until last night), however it was brought to my attention by a friend who was over for dinner. This particular clip is called ‘Put a bird on it’ … Whilst watching it all I could think about was Heidi’s nursery – enough said (for now)… Portlandia – ‘put a bird on it’
It was time to change my Christmas decorations, so I started a Pinterest Christmas board for inspiration. I then waited until we moved into our new house to get a feel for the place before I bought anything. I think I have everything for the new look this year it’s not on a tree, or decorating a table… Yet! I am getting ahead of myself, but I thought I would give you a sneak peak anyway… I am really happy with the combo, and love the fresh and cheery colours.
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.
