Our Christmas Home Decor 2019

Nothing makes a home feel cosier than when it's decorated for Christmas does it? This year we decided to decorate for Christmas on December 1st and it was honestly so lovely to start December with what was a really lovely festive family day. 

The day started with advent calendars and Christmas cards for Ethan and Logan. We played Christmas songs all morning and had my Christmas cinnamon candle burning. And then we pulled all of the decorations down from storage and made a start on making our home feel Christmassy! 

I won't lie, previous years of Christmas decorating haven't always gone smoothly. It always takes longer than we think to get the whole house decorated and energy levels start to dip after the past hour. The boys are 4 and 6 this year but in previous years when they've been younger, we've had our fair share of meltdowns amongst the mess. 

But actually, this year was EXACTLY how I had always hoped Christmas decorating as a family would be. The boys were so interested in helping us decorate and they did it so nicely. Everyone was in a great, festive mood and we all added our own touches. It was just one of those really nice family days and my heart felt so happy. Christmas is so much more exciting with the boys. 


I've uploaded a Decorate For Christmas With Us as well as a Christmas Home Decor Tour over on my YouTube channel, but I thought I'd also share a few photos here of our home decor too!

 The boys helped put all of the baubles on the tree and they did such a good job!

 Trying to put the star on. (It nearly had the whole, tree over but we got there in the end, haha).

Logan found this Santa apron in one of the boxes and wanted to wear it whilst decorating, he looked so cute!

 I am so happy I bought some festive bedding this year! I got it from Dunelm Mill for £12 and I love it!

christmas books, christmas books for kids,
 We've also changed up the books on Logan's bookshelf (though these books belong to both of the boys) and we added some fairy lights in both of the boys' rooms.

 All ready for Christmas!

Have you decorated your home for Christmas yet?


 Thank you for reading.
