Quirky Decorations For A Colourful Christmas Tree | My Home Vibe

Quirky _Christmas _Decorations

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 …

Large bright pink metallic bauble .. now only £3.00.

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.

    My husband was forced to stop making fun of my Christmas ornament habit this weekend. I went out to our detached back house to pull a couple more ornaments to make the wreaths on the front gates a little blingier, and opened the door to a room full of smoke! I’d discovered an electrical fire at its very early stages, before it could do permanent structural damage. He now admits that my ornament habit is perhaps a good thing! Tell your man that ornaments can save houses.

    I love that you still have Woody and Buzz in amongst all those amazing colourful new baubles. The tree looks lovely, very in keeping with the room.

    Love your colourful decorations. Our tree is similar with lots of colour and every year I add something new. The last few years I have tried to purchase ornaments when on our city breaks so we have a ‘New York cab’, a ‘ German Beer Drinker’, a ‘ suitcase with Prague’ on etc. The ornaments have become a real talking point.

      Oh it’s fab collecting on your travels isn’t it? I have one from Crete in there somewhere. I like the sound of yours though, Jill .. fun xo

    Voted! (good luck madam – v hopeful for you). Loving the Christmas baubles – we have no tree (yet), the daughter is probably due back Monday from her studies in Bristol (although her plans change hourly), and no tree is allowed until she is here – she likes things “tasteful”… seriously, seriously what is the point of a tasteful Christmas tree (in other words no flamingos allowed, although I may sneak one in to annoy her 🙂 )

      She’d be no good in our house then if she craves ‘tasteful’ 🙂 Sneak one in, sneak on in!!! Thanks for the vote, too, Juliet xo

      It would be fab just to make the short list, Melissa but there’s tons of amazing competition. Would be fab if someone from our demographic though so I’ve placed my votes!

      Thanks for the bauble and tree love, honey xo

    I totally love your style! I wish I was brave enough to break away from the rules! I try to add colour to my outfits but as far as decor comes its white, black or grey!

      I never realised how much I loved colour so much until we moved to this house 3 years ago. Weird that isn’t it? xo

    Fabulous tree! The peacock looks so much more expensive – you could have claimed it was from Liberty and I would have believed you!
    I like to add two or three new tree decorations each year but there are some family memories that always have to go on the tree whether they match the decorations or not.

      It does doesn’t it, Annette? Some seriously good bargains everywhere no matter what size budget. I was talking on my stories yesterday about how the memory ones are on the tree, too although some are buried deep or round the back!!

      My wall hanging tree has quite a few of the nostalgic ones on this year, too.

      Hope you have a lovely Christmas xo
