Fairy Christmas

Last week I went a bit fairy light crazy. They are definitely one of my favourite things about Christmas, and now I have my own little flat to decorate I got a bit over excited in the John Lewis Christmas section!

We don't have space for a tree, so it had to be lights around the window instead, and they look so pretty from the outside, and inside even when we have the curtains drawn and they shine through. They're held on by hope and a lot of blutack, so they probably will crash to the ground pretty soon, but for the moment they make me happy!

Do you decorate for Christmas?

I do have one of those tiny trees which sit on the table, but for the last couple of years I haven't put it up, I'm just usually too busy and not really home enough to bother with it. I hate decorating the office for Xmas as well as nobody is even there for the Xmas week, it seems like a waste to me, I am a bit of a scrooge really.

I have a mixture of fairly light and candles everywhere. I also have a tiny tree, which sits in the hearth of my fireplace. I love this time of year.

I like the lights - v.pretty. We're not getting a tree this year but I'll be putting up the fairy lights, xmas decorations and cards around the flat. I normally stick everything up with blutack or string it's not ideal but better than letting me loose with some nails and a drill!x

Yep! I always have no matter how tiny the space I'm living in is. Now we have a bit more space, and last weekend we got a tree and have put a few things around the mantel. I love fairy lights too! :)

these look lovely, they really make a home all cosy! We're getting a tree at the end of the week and there will be lights on it of course :) x

We've had a two ft fake tree for years but as this is our first Christmas in our new house, we splashed out on a 'proper' tree, which I finally finished decorating on Saturday : )

Fairy lights are definitely one of my favourite parts about Christmas too! They're so pretty and, come december, I tend to adorn anything I can see with them.

you should get a little tree, that's what i have and it doesn't take up a lot of space. I love your christmas lights and the soft glow they give off. I'm sure they look pretty from the outside too :)

Fairy lights are by far the best Christmas decoration. Always xxx
