Can I be really real with you right now? My flat is the least festive looking home at the moment. You see, I’m preparing to move, whilst having a wedding invitations production line going on my living room floor. Decorating my flat for Christmas really has been on the back burner this year!
I’ve been thinking about ways to give my flat a subtle hint of Christmas, as I just don’t have the time nor the bits ‘n’ bobs to make it look all out festive. There are some great ornaments for decorations in the shops right now – and the best thing is they’ve already started to be reduced!
Fatface have some great ornaments to give the hint of Christmas and I was lucky enough to be sent some recently. I particularly love their little snow house ornaments, which would be great on a Christmas tree or even just placed ontop of a mantlepiece. They also have some lovely hanging hearts and stars (I already have a few of these hanging in my flat!), which make a very easy decor piece. You can hang them on your windows or door handles and they look fab!
As well as Fatface, if you live near a George at Asda store then definitely pop in. I saw they had a lot of their Christmas decor reduced in price and they have such a wide range I’m sure you’ll find something to suit your style.
Candles aren’t exactly ornaments but some can look great on display. I’d suggest a great Christmas candle. I love three wick candles from Bath and Body Works, but as those are difficult to find in the UK (although I have found them here) I’d recommend Yankee candles.
Alongside ornaments, having some festive food at home definitely adds that ‘Christmassy’ touch to your home. I’ll admit it and say that I do have a box of mince pies opened on the kitchen side already. I also popped into my local M&S food store and picked up their gingerbread house kit to build at home (here’s a similar one from Waitrose). It was only £5 too, which is great! Oh and I was recently sent some Fatface chocolate Brussel sprouts, which were surprisingly very tasty!
I’m on the hunt for a really good Christmas mug. I remember seeing one in Asda which I may pick up, but there are also plenty of options online (this one caught my eye!). I also picked up a gorgeous silver sparkly travel cup from Starbucks for £12 recently. Last year they released a gold version, which I also bought!
All in all it’s quite simple to add some subtle Christmas touches to your home. Have you gone all out this Christmas or kept it subtle this year? Let me know below!
