It’s December, it’s cold outside, we’ve had the first few frosts and we’re officially in the run up to Xmas. Eeek I’m so excited!
This weekend we bought our brand new Xmas tree, a 6.5ft snow effect beauty because, well, they’re just so pretty! I love the idea of bringing a bit of winter chic inside the home to add some style to the decorations.
Of course you’ve probably guessed she’s a fake one, I’ve always had fake Xmas trees and like that they’re adaptable and you don’t have to worry about all of the mess – total bonus if you’re a mum!
I simply had to go shopping for some new decorations as I wanted to really focus on a white & silver winter chic theme. I ventured all over town with Ollie in tow trying to find some sparkly gems to adorn our tree. Turns out there’s a lot of tacky out there but you can get some great high street bargains if you root about a bit. I got our silver beads and star lights from Poundland – total bargains!
Of course having a two year old I didn’t want to get any expensive or delicate decorations as I’m fully expecting the bottom half of the tree to be destroyed by the time we reach New Years. So I stuck to the high street.
Here’s a few pics of my favourites:
Totally love this soft star from Wilko’s I thought it was nice to add some blue touches to bring out the winter wonderland theme.
I think this might be my all time favourite tree decoration! I got a pack of three from Paperchase, if you like something stylish and a bit different they have a great range of Xmas decorations.
I got these beautiful silver baubles from TJ Hughes, they were meant to be two packs (3 in a pack) for £5 but at the checkout they were half price.
I think it’s nice to spread a bit of Xmas and winter chic around the house so when I was in Poundland I also picked up these mini white trees and some star fairy lights. They look really lovely all lit up and great value for just £1.
So there you have it my few tips on where to grab a Winter wonderland bargain this Xmas to add to your decorations. How are you styling your home this season?
