Our house at Christmas pretty much resembles Santa’s grotto. We have the ‘Magical Ice Forest’ in the hallway, the classic red, green and gold cosy Christmas in the living room and then Santa himself stands in the kitchen, singing and dancing every time we walk past. Decorating is what I look forward to most. Getting the tinsel down from the attic, hanging the wreath on the front door and just remembering the old, forgotten decorations that we put up and love year after year. There are always new decorations that I want to buy and have to resist, either because we already have so many or because certain aspects of our house limits us to what we can have. So for today’s Blogmas post I thought it’d be fun to create a wishlist of all the Christmas decor I’d love to own.
I would love to have a classic, Christmas garland draped over the fire mantelpiece. They look so pretty and festive and really add a cosy touch to your home. I love that this one is pre-lit with warm toned lights and the pine cones make it very rustic. One day I hope I’ll own a home with a fireplace so I can decorate like this.
How cute is this doormat from Dunelm?! Anything that has a picture of Santa in his red suit I want haha. It reminds me of my childhood and the ‘Santa stop here’ signs we would put out in the garden. We do already have a festive door mat that I love, but I really want this one too and at only £6 it’s a complete steal!
Again from Dunelm is this gorgeous picture of New York in the Winter. I’ve always wanted to go to New York at Christmas time, it looks so magical! Having this hung up in the hallway will definitely create a wintery atmosphere, which will fit in perfectly with our snow forest theme!
Every year I tell myself I’m going to buy one of these but I always forget! I feel like this needs to be the year I actually buy one. I think they’re very sweet and traditional and it reminds me of primary school, as we had one in class that we would take turns to light every morning.
This acrylic crystal stag and snowman from John Lewis is really pretty and something that’ll give you that festive feeling whenever you see it. I feel like the stag is just so majestic and something that people will admire as they go by. Plus the snowman is just so darn cute with his top hat so I’d definitely have to get both haha, there’s no way I could pick one!
Last year my boyfriend got me a little crystal Santa and Reindeer decoration from Swarovski and I adore them. They’re very cute and extremely pretty! I was browsing a Swarovski store a few weeks ago and came across this adorable little elf and really wanted to add it to my collection.
I currently own two Christmas cushions and I want (need) so many more! I love this ‘Let it Snow’ light up cushion from M&S and Tesco currently have loads of choices. Cushions are so cosy and I’m really into the ones with quotes on this year. So I think I’ll have to add a few more to the living room soon.
That is everything on my Christmas decor wishlist for this year! Is there anything you’re wanting to give your home that magical, festive feel to it?
