A little tour around my Christmas Grotto
Why hello to all you beautiful people! It’s December and I have to say, this year has gone in a flash.
As soon as the 1st hit we were getting festive. That started with a trip to see Father Christmas at the school fayre. Followed by our towns annual light switch on. I love all the little stalls and even stopped for a slice of cake. Then, of course, decorations, letters to Santa all alongside some classic Christmas tunes at the weekend.
I had a Twitter poll recently that said you guys are only 50% festive and I can’t have that!! So here is a little look at the decorations we have this year to get you into the Christmas spirit.
Let’s start with the bookshelf….
I have tinsel and trinkets aplenty, I have elves and snowglobes galore!!
Santa (me in my house, sorry for the ‘Santa’s not real’ spoiler) has his naughty and nice indicator. My favourite pieces, however, are the Christmas Tree candle, never to be lit and our musical snowglobe (heart eye emoji).
Next, we Have our fire are which I am in love with.
The tiny little hat is Doug the Pugs (aka shmeegle lol) and I just love how cosy this little corner is. All the twinkling lights, frosted tinsel and glowing fire is just so relaxing and snug.
These are my shelves that I have. I will buy some battery LED lights for the rather un-twinkly set. But my particular faves from here is our first ever elf and also the cactus pot! Plants can get festive too!
Another twinkly nook with cute homade crafts.
Our elf door!! This door ‘magically’ appeared last year and has again this year! Last Christmas Eve an Elf came through it with a Christmas Eve box for the boys. They were very excited to see it return and I’m sure they’ll be just as excited to receive their box this year.
This is our Christmas wreath. We live in the countryside and found this to be so pretty, simple and fitting. I love the pine cones but how it glitters too it’s 100% Country festive.
Finally, we’ll move onto the Christmas tree and ours is a bright, happy tree with lost of colour. We have lots of eclectic baubles and each has a special one that goes on every year. Also includes a light up flashing star it is boarding on gaudy but that’s how like a lot of things (lol). Mine is the gingerbread man as I am year round obsessed with them! With Microlights and tinsel galore I love our tree this year.
As you can see my house is well on its way to becoming a grotto. I have to admit that I didn’t even share ALL my decs with you just my lounge. I also have more crafts to do with the boys to add! Do you go overboard like me? Or are you a minimalist festivetarian? Let me know in the comments below and I hope this got you feeling festive.
Lots of Love,
