seeking christmas inspiration

It’s first of December and we are decorating our house. The biggest difference to last year is of course the location – last year we were in China and now we are in England, so the house makes the starting point completely different. Also, last year we travelled to Bali for the festive season, and this year we will be hosting it at home with some relatives – so more reasons to make the house nice!

But first I wanted to look back to our previous holidays seasons for inspiration for this year. And this is what’s been found in our house the past two years or so – advent calendars, mulled wine, christmas tree groups, apples and chocolates – and lots of seasonal events to go with it! I think this year is going to be even busier than the previous ones, and hopefully more relaxing and fun…
