Wonky baubles? Read on...


I don't know about you, my poppett, but, when it comes to Christmas, I'm *far*more interested in atmosphere, than whether every bauble is perfectly in place.

Who cares whether the lanterns are slightly skewiff or if the red on the children's pictures doesn't exactly match the felt decorations? 
Alright, I do just a little bit...

But what really matters to me is that it should all feel hugely festive. 
A wonderfully happy celebration.

Like a King's birthday party.

Oh Sarah, I totally agree!! Atmosphere is my number one thing. We celebrate "Three King's Day" at our house, so we get to celebrate something totally devoted to Christ's birth.

One of my favorite Christmas carols is "Tis the Birthday of a King."

Merry Christmas in your festive home.

Atmosphere is everything. Lots of ice candles, snow lanterns and the smell of Christmas tree and hyacinths does it for me. So pleased to have found your lovely blog!

Agreed! I think it's important to have a certain degree of 'realness' to a Christmassy Decorated house - After all, no one's perfect and Christmas is just a big King's birthday celebration!!
