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.
I stumbled across this rattan screen about 4 years ago. It was 7.30am, I was driving to work… my attention was drawn to a skip sitting outside a house in our street. Sticking out the top of the skip was a small portion of this rattan screen/room divider – It looked promising! So much so, if stopping to check it out meant I was late to work, it was a risk I was willing to take. With years of experience under my belt, I would call myself a seasoned collector of junk from the footpath or skips. Even with that label clearly tattooed to my forehead it doesn’t make me feel any more comfortable about fossicking through other people’s junk. This morning was particularly awkward with a spectator sitting on the front porch of the house next door… monitoring my swift stop, reverse, park, inspect, grab and squeeze!
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.
