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.
It took a visit from mum for me to realise there was a fig tree in our back garden. I’m not completely ignorant to plants, but our rental has a rather large garden (it got lost behind the gum trees), and I have been pregnant the entire time we had lived in the house, so haven’t been getting out into the garden as much. The fig season was around the time Heidi was born (March/April), however for some reason our figs ripened a little later than that.
