Christmas 2018 | At Home + Beyond


Christmas decorating is a fairly pared-back affair at home, with the tree and a few select festive pieces here and there.  Some of my favourite decorations are our dried floral wreath hung above our downstairs shelves, and the paper ornaments on our String shelving. 

As much as I loved our Nordic Spruce tree last year, it was a struggle to keep it looking fresh for the big day in our summer heat. I had in mind to try out a potted tree this year and as luck would have it, Bloom Social kindly gifted one to us. I was worried that the kids wouldn't be happy with the down-size, but I think they're more preoccupied with the presents under the tree! And hopefully I can keep it alive during the year so it will continue to grow. Here's a glimpse of it alongside my incredible Jo Malone London Advent Calendar which has had me counting down is heavenly fragrant style this year. 

For the gift wrapping I had planned on using white Kraft paper but I had trouble finding some. Luckily the brown paper is still a classic, especially paired with black ribbon that I hoard during the year. I've also been enjoying the Nespresso festive coffees, A Taste of Paris, made in the new matte white Creatista Plus Machine

And from far away, I've been admiring the beautiful Christmas inspiration from Danish brand by Lassen. I thought I would leave you with this beautiful imagery as some final inspiration for the big day.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas break. I'm very much looking forward to recharging the batteries and spending time with family as we head in to 2019, ready for another exciting year ahead! 

Thank you all for your kindness and support this year. Happy holidays!
