Every year I host a small and intimate Christmas brunch for my girlfriends, and it occurred to me that given the current situation with Covid- 19, it would actually be the perfect post to share as it would work well as a setup for small social bubbles.
Many of us are choosing to stay home more. Many of us have no choice but to stay home more. Our circles are smaller but now more important than ever to us.
So why not make the best of it and make the little moments we do have count!
If you are looking for some ideas for your Christmas tablescape I may have some inspiration for you... especially if your a fan of Christmas nutcrackers and pink things
Yes, you did read the title correctly! I decorate our bedroom for Christmas every year! The way I see it, the more magic the better!
So I thought I'd share with you some tips on how I create this festive vibe.
There is something about a cozy, twinkling, warm, and magical bedroom around the festive period that I absolutely love and hope you will too.
Usually during the festive season I am too busy traveling and running around decorating when I do finally get home finding any and every possible room, tree, door or free surface I can get my hands on that I don't actually have the time to share the finished decorations with you... unless its on Insta story's!
Last year was a perfect example of this, Months of work and barely any blog posts!
As the self-proclaimed queen of Christmas... at least in my circle, I am. I'd hope I know a thing or two about decorating Christmas trees! On average, we dress 7 trees each Christmas in our home So if nothing else I get ALOT of practice.
With all of this practice, I thought I would pass on my learnings. Some of which are forged in the fire (my friends will never let me forget the time my Christmas tree fell over, fully dressed onto a ceramic floor taking some of my most beloved decorations with it)
I wanted to very quickly pop on here to wish all of my readers a very Happy New year. It's been a hectic Christmas for me with one thing or another (another being the 10 Christmas trees we seem to have committed to this Christmas!!!)
Christmas, to me is about celebrating with friends and making time to appreciate each other. So we get some of our favorites together, and have a Christmas soiree. This year we hosted an afternoon tea.
For last years Christmas tablescape I really tried to challenge myself not to use pink. Pink is my absolute all time favorite color and I naturally just reach for it no matter what i'm doing.
That said, I also really like to change things up and make things look completely different. After all life is too short to do the same tablescape twice!
Seeing all of you're favourite people at Christmas can be really hard as everyone is so busy shopping, decorating and visiting family as well as living life in general. If you're not careful you can miss out on time with your closest friends. This is why I always try to plan a brunch or a lunch so I don't miss out on time with my favourites at such a special time.
Last year I invited some of my girlfriends from Spain to a very pink and girly afternoon.
After a super productive day Christmas shopping in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, (if you haven't been shopping there you should definitely check it out) we headed to the Christmas markets. Because is it even Christmas if you haven't been to the Christmas markets...
