Christmas without decorations is like Shrove Tuesday without pancakes. Just plain wrong!
My parents house is a Santa’s grotto at Christmas. It is full to the brim with decorations. But each year I seem to add more and more to my collection, so by the time I’m their age I will have my own Santa’s grotto.
Although this year I might blame Julie who started Five Under £5, for the influx of new decorations in my house. Julie made a comment on my post last month, that maybe we should do ten under £5 for Christmas. Challenge accepted Julie!
I seem to be drawn to decorations made out of natural materials, and on my tree my decorations are white, silver and gold.
- Hanging heart B&M Stores £1.00.
- Gold star tree decoration John Lewis £2.00
- Wooden star decoration Next £4.00
- Merry Christmas wreath John Lewis £4.00
- Noel decoration Wilko £1.50
It’s not Christmas until I’ve had a nose around the decorations in John Lewis!
One thing I hate at Christmas is tinsel. Each to their own, but it’s not coming near my tree. Instead I use garlands like this beautiful gold one I picked up in Matalan for £3.00.
The ‘Be Merry’ sign was also form Matalan for £3.00.
I absolutely loved these wooden Christmas trees from Wilko. They are only £1.00!
The ‘Joy’ sign was £2.00 from a gift shop in the New Forest.
And finally I picked up this awesome Christmas jumper garland from Paperchase in their sale last month for £4.00. It’s instantly my favourite decoration. I love it!
How big is your Christmas decoration collection?
Five Under £5 was started by Julie at Rainbeaubelle. You can read all about it and get inspired by lots of other posts on her website.
