CHRISTMAS!!!!! Yay! I love christmas! I love the time with friends and family, waking up Christmas morning and digging into presents, eating way to much but still having room for one…ok two servings of Mum’s chocolate banana mousse but what I love most about Christmas is the decorations!!! I usually start in about September thinking about what theme I will have for the year and start researching ideas that will go with my theme! Garlands, tree ornaments, oh and the wrapping! Can’t forget the wrapping! I just love giving beautifully wrapped gifts and seeing them all pilled up under the tree in perfect cohesion! Its just so festive! I get little thrills when the Ikea christmas catalogues arrives in the mail! and this year’s hasn’t disappointed!
I was very excited to see that Ikea will be stocking loads (well they were until my mum and I visited a couple of weeks ago) of decorations that fit this years theme of “Rustic meets vintage charm”!
Here are some findings that have inspired my “Rustic meets vintage charm” theme!
I am actually making some tags inspired by this look using gift tags I got off ebay and these awesome letter stamps I also got off ebay for $5! Will throw up some pics when they are ready!
So, are you all feeling inspired?
What style will your halls be decked in this year? Traditional? Colourful? or all out Tacktacular! Would love to hear (and see) what kind of christmas bomb will be exploding at your place!
Hmm so now i have the decorations and wrapping sorted…….I should probably buy some presents to actually wrap…………….
