Getting ready for Christmas: Rustic Red

Christmas Tree Decorations Set - £15.00 - Next

Christmas Bunting - £10.00 - Next

Yesterday I took a day off to decorate the house with my mum. We watched Love Actually (the best Christmas film in my opinion) and spent hours and hours sorting through all of our decorations and putting the tree up. I also decided to decorate my bedroom and thanks to these lovely decorations from Next, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in there too!

After spending hours looking around the shops on Sunday, I finally found the perfect Christmas decorations in Next. In the end I decided to go for a rustic red theme and the set of baubles I picked up from Next for £15.00 fit the bill perfectly. I absolutely adore the little heart shaped baubles and love the little red bells too.

I have to admit I did get a little carried away in Next and also end up buying some Christmas bunting, festive Christmas candles and an adorable reindeer, who we've called Morris. With the addition of a set of gold heart and star fairy lights and some glitter covered pine cones (bought from Next a couple of years ago) my room has ended up looking so festive and cosy...I love it!
I'm also planning on doing a little post featuring the living room decorations (where we've gone for an icy blue and silver theme) so be sure to look out for that! And if you still haven't bought your decorations this year, why not enter my giveaway to be with in the chance of winning £50.00 to spend at Christmas Tree World?

How are you decorating your home this Christmas?

    1. Thanks Gemma! I really like traditional red and gold Christmas colours! xo

  3. Wow, Next seems really good for Christmas decorations this year! The artificial snow on that tree looks amazingly real! I love that you've stuck to a red theme, I just feel like that's the most Christmassy colour! You've just reminded me I need to watch Love Actually too at some point, love that film! :) x

    1. Next is SO good for Christmas decorations! Red is definitely the most Christmassy colour and I think it looks lovely with gold and white too. You can't beat Love Actually - it'll never get old! xo
