This year I bought my very first Christmas tree. Look at it! It's so tiny, it's so "being little".. but I needed some bits and bobs to decorate it, as well as a few extras to make the rest of the room look Christmassy.
And that's where John Lewis comes in. Their Christmas decorations range is full of beautiful things, and I chose a few to get our house looking suitably festive!
I wanted to keep the tree very simple with a gold theme. I don't really like a whole lot to be on it. I chose these little battery operated lights* so that they wouldn't overwhelm or weigh down the tree, then some thin gold tinsel* and a beautiful sparkly star* to finish it off.
We have quite a lot of bare walls in our lounge, so I thought this super cute pom pom garland* (which is now half price!!) would cheer up one of the walls a bit. I hung four of my handmade stockings underneath too, as we don't have a fireplace to hang them! How cute does this wall look now?!
Finally, I picked some bits to make a wreath for our front door. To the wreath frame* I added few offcuts from the tree, some leftover tinsel, and these gold pine cones*, as well as a little leftover wire and ribbon from other projects.
It's pretty messy, but that's how I like it. Since the crazy gales we've had, it's looking slightly worse for wear, but that can easily be fixed with a little more wire!
Have you decorated your house for Christmas yet? Where did you get your decorations?
