After all my posts in which I was talking about my Christmas enthusiasm, a post about my Christmas decoration was meant to arrive sooner or later. And here it is! Last Monday, I picked up a Christmas tree. Which definitely sounds much easier than it turned out to be, haha! Last year, I picked up my tree by bike. Which obviously didn’t work out. So this time, I went by foot. Only, the garden center is a 20 minute walk from my house. So about 30 in case you’re carrying a tree which is as big as yourself. Typing this on Wednesday night, I still feel my neck and arms. Oh well, I guess it was a good work out then. And the tree was totally worth it! It’s the biggest tree me and my boyfriend have had since we live together. So I also decided to get some new bigger ornaments. And I’m glad I did! It makes for a nice combo with the smaller ones. Next to the tree, I hung a ton of other Christmas decoration in our home yesterday. All the little lights make me so happy! We like to have dinner with all our regular lights off, and only the Christmas lights and candles on. So romantic! Anyway, this post contains 16 (!!) photos of my Christmas decoration. Maybe you can get some inspiration from it for your own decoration, because there are also some (very simple) DIY-ish thingies in there. And otherwise it’s just fun to look at! I hope you like it! :D Did you already get your Christmas decoration up?
Christmas decoration in the living room
I like to add a bow on top of my Christmas tree! I think it’s such a cute finishing touch!
I got a wooden disc to use as a candle plate. This gives such a rustic feeling! Also, I bought the gold candles new, and got the red ones for Christmas last year from my mom. So I decided to mix them up!
I’m so in love with the Eiffel tower marquee light! Already have it for a few weeks, but it’s also great as Christmas decoration!
Fun DIY idea; cut a few little branches off your tree and put them under a glass bell. Add a few small Christmas ornaments, and you have another Christmas decoration!
On the door of our storage. Very interesting ;-)
And the lights I had been looking for since forever! Finally found them at Sostrene Grene! I love them so much!
Another simple DIY: tie a ribbon around a phase, fill it with small branches off your Christmas tree, add some ornaments, some small lights, and you’re done!
Waterfall lights next to our dinner table.
Christmas decoration in the bedroom
Yep, I actually got a duvet especially for Christmas! When I stumbled upon it on the Hema webshop, I just had to have it! And I even got it with a discount! It’s appropriate for Christmas, but it’s also very chic I think, which I like!
And last, but not least, these lights are hanging above our bed!
So, what do you think of our decoration? :D And did you get yours up already? I’m very curious!
