miss b loves.......decorating the Christmas tree

Mulled wine, candles scented with cinnamon, orange and cloves, mince pies, Christmas music - the perfect ingredients for an afternoon decorating our Christmas tree............ 

Last year's burgundy and gold theme brought lots of compliments and it coordinated well with the décor so I decided to stick with this colour scheme but mix things up a little. Each year I can't resist adding to our collection of decorations and this year was no exception!  I just had to buy some glittery court shoes........

 

I love to hang modern decorations next to old favourites - a sparkly shoe next to our very special  wooden tree ornament which we bought a few years ago whilst visiting Bethlehem.




More shoes to add a
touch of glamour and sparkle!

If only they were my size!



 


Almost finished .........




The tree is up!
  
and our traditional (and now very old!)
fairy is on the top! 



Favourite decorations around our home..........

We Three Cute Kings


Father Christmas - the old one
 and the new
           

Mr Snowman - ready to greet
 our visitors

Two weeks to Christmas!

  23. Sounds good miss b! The tree looks lovely. It's been a long time since I have used gold at my place - this year I've gone for white - maybe next year can be a little more glittery!

    So nice of you to stop by to visit me.
