Home for the Holidays !

Where has December gone ? I cannot believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve ! We are pretty much ready and the last couple of days I’ve been able to catch up on the last of the preparations.

This year I was inspired to go for a vintage theme after my love of Meet Me In St Louis. It’s one of my favourite Christmas films and a must watch for me on Christmas Eve !

From the off I knew the tree was going to be an issue. The girls are 19 months and into everything so I knew this year my perfect tree wasn’t going to happen.

Here’s my perfectly decorated top half of the tree ! (Good job we went for a big tree !) and the post twin destruction reality shot !

There are lots of wooden decorations, candy canes, berries and cinnamon sticks !  I made the girls a little decoration out out wooden shaped baubles,  I also popped on of the believe bells on the tree !

The little ice skating decorating was our tribute to the theme ! I love those vintage skates !

I think wreaths and garlands look so festive,  so I wanted to incorporate them into this years decorating, I dotted garlands around the house and made dried orange and clove slices to decorate them.

We we have a shelf above our bed and I love the look of the garland among the fairy lights and I used another garland in the kitchen.

The rest of the house has a cozy feel with lots of throws, cushions and vintage accessories !

I love how Christmassy the house feels , I’ve had lots of candles burning, mulled wine mulling and old movies playing. I’m all ready for a Merry Little Christmas !
