I always have various Christmas themes going on across our the rooms. Some of them continue year after year and I add newness to them. Just like my wall hanging tree. This is it’s 4th year and it’s a more traditional look this year. I’ll have a photo on Instagram very soon if you’re intrigued about my 2018 version.
The tree in the sitting room so far has always been a real one in the 3 years and 4 Christmases we’ve been here. This room though, as those of you who follow me know, is a very colourful one. The colour scheme evolved in here and includes silver, gold, teal, turquoise, lime, purple and hot pink. It’s a riot. I’ve really let myself go in this room and I’m pleased to say everyone does love it. Even Mr B!
For that reason it will can take some quite kitsch, colour pop baubles.
I’ve got a couple of flamingos on there. This one in the collage I know I bought after Christmas last year but can I heck remember where from!
The animal print and sprinkle topped ones were an impulse purchase from River Island just this week. I was taking something back and they were hanging by the checkout queue .. reduced to £3.00 each. What’s a girl to do? I’ve searched online but they are gone ….
The colourful little pinata bauble is by Paperchase. I got mine on a Black Friday discount code from Asos when I was shopping for the boys. It’s low stock their site is saying but it’s also still on the Paperchase website.
The turquoise peacock was a steal for about £2.00 from Home Bargains.
Close up of the animal print bauble … I love it! Apologies for the grainy photos, though .. the light is not good in this room and the one grumble about my iPhone camera is it’s not the best in low light. I’m due for an upgrade in the new year.
Introducing Woody ….
We have Buzz Lightyear and an alien from Toy Story, too hiding in amongst the branches. Their colours work well with this theme and add a sentimental touch as they are getting on a bit from when the boys were small.
The turquoise sequin peacock was a steal for about £2.00 from Home Bargains.
Two more from the River Island ‘while standing in the queue’ haul and are still just about available online …
These are both quite a substantial size and are stunning. The family think my bauble obsession is worse than ever this year!
What about you? I bet you all top up each year, too, right? I also like giving baubles as Christmas gifts. There’s nothing nicer than the memories they conjure up of who bought them or where they were from when you dress your tree.
We only just managed to get the tree up this past weekend. A week later than usual but life is just so hectic at the moment.
On A Side Note …
I’m excited to be flying the flag and championing the midlife demographic by announcing that I’m through to the voting round of UK Blog Awards 2019. How flipping brilliant is that? I’m in the lifestyle category and somehow in the fashion category .. I’ll take that though. Not complaining!!
Anyway, this stage involves a little bit of help from you to vote for me 😉 Just click on this link below and use the ‘Vote Now’ button.
Thankyou in advance beautiful people xo
