A Christmas Jumper
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a novelty Christmas jumper – the more retro and kitsch the better, and if it radiates signs that it was knitted by your Gran then you have really hit the nail on the head. Keep warm this Christmas with some stylish yarns. We will be digging ours out this Friday in time for National Christmas Jumper Day.
A Splash Of Colourful Nostalgia
Christmas is a time for nostalgic sentiments and childhood memories, traditions that grow out of our own personal memories and histories. Make sure you incorporate some of these into your Christmas this year. Fill your tree with nostalgia and some vintage glass baubles.
Moving on from the nostalgic theme and appealing to those creative sparks.. wrapping presents, one of the joys of Christmas, (maybe in some cases not so much). If you’re not such a fan and wrapping is not for you, here are a few ideas that can make it abit more interesting. It’s always fun to recycle what you have around the house and be creative with your present wrapping, I know the paper doesn’t stay on very long once the exchange of presents has taken place, but they will certainly look pretty under the tree and stand out above the rest.
A table centre piece is a must on Christmas day, here are a few creative ideas to impress your guests on the day, nothing too extravagant; just simple but effective.
If you’re a little short of space on your table- use space above to hang tissue paper decorations and baubles using pretty ribbons or vintage fabric from the ceiling, hanging them at different heights is really effective and makes a lasting impression.
Or just use an old jam jar, fill it with water and some foliage and berries and as a finishing touch add a floating candle, so simple yet effective.
A chunky candle can look really effective with some simple decorations wrapped around the base, just attach a strip of card around the base of the candle with a glue gun and attach the pine cones to this, again using a glue gun. Or you can adapt this using holly, berries, buttons, ribbon – whatever you can lay your hands on – it will look beautifully stylish.
Hope you have your own unique, stylish Christmas, filled with nostalgic sentiments, creative ideas, sentimental tunes and extravagant Christmas yarns.
