Deck the Halls! How do you decorate your house for Christmas? Every room or just certain ones? Do you have any special decorating traditions?
Now I'll hand over to Claire who'll be sharing her inspiration for today!...
A big big welcome to Documented December, the start of our festive series of blog posts counting down to the big day.
As a team we have been preparing for this for a while behind the scenes, and for me it will the first year that I participate full, and am really looking forward to having that daily record as the excitement gradually builds.
As I said as a team we have been preparing and I cannot tell you how excited some of the others members of the team are to get going....LOL! Be sure to check in with us every single day, where they too will be sharing and letting us in on 'little snippets' of their Christmas.
Now I have to admit that my decorations don't go up until about 10-14 days before Christmas Eve, and I can't tell you the ear ache I get from my husband every year wanting them up sooner....LOL! Its all in good fun, he knows I will never budge on that, and I expect the constant asking.
The wait is worth it though. We are lucky enough to have two family rooms, so that means two christmas trees......perfect for as I get to decorate a traditional tree in the golds and reds and a collection of olde worlde ornaments that have collected and cherished over the years. The second tree tends to be a real tree because I love the fresh tree scent, and generally I decorate in a more modern style with cooler colours - this year I fancy icy blue and white......hehe actually the more I think about it the more excited I get.
Thank you for stopping by today, and be sure to join Clare tomorrow.
