This year has gone so fast and Christmas is only 2 days away. I usually like to spend weeks dreaming up new colour and decorating schemes, thinking about the menu and deciding on presents, but this year my usually well-laid plans have gone out the window! With guests coming to stay and lots of exciting new changes in store for 2015, I have been left behind and caught up in the busyness of this favourite season! In a mad rush to add some festive cheer before our annual Christmas party, I dived into boxes marked "Christmas Stuff" and literally pulled out everything that did not require untangling. Here's what I came up with. It took me 1.5 hours to unpack, group and style. Hope you enjoyed our quick & Fast Christmas decorating.... next year will be better..... or different.
Image 1: Baubles (one accent and other in complimentary tones) in a well-loved hurricane.
Image 2: Rudolph (chic and sophisticated in acrylic)
Image 3, 4 & 5: Nativity Scene, mirror with willow wreath and mercury heart all work together and take pride place in our entry.
My Mum bought all 4 girls our very own collection of Willow Tree nativity (probably because she noticed missing angels and baby Jesus' over the years)
Image 6: Table centre piece. Mercury tea-light holders and red berry springs. Doesn't get much easier than this!
Image 7: Coloured baubles in a cake stand. Tip: Turn lid up, fill baubles- then add the base and flip carefully.
From our house, to yours; may this Christmas season be a happy & safe time of celebration with all those you love dearly.
