I won’t so much be decking my halls as having a few gorgeous pieces decorating my home for a festive feel. Less is more I say!

Here are just a few of my favourite finds for all you contemporary lovers out there.. And maybe there’s just enough time left to get yourself some..!

Personally, I’ve never really understood the desire to have an artificial tree. Firstly, because they’re lifeless plastic (and non-eco) and secondly because they lack any scent. I love that wonderful fresh pine smell and to me it’s not Christmas without that smell! This year I’ve opted for a small potted tree and hoping to keep it alive and reuse next year. However, I do absolutely adore this ply tree. This gets away from dropping pine needles and is a great ‘tree for life’ option. I think if I had one I’d leave it up all year round…

Merry Christmas to everyone!
Tip of the month: Support your local farm shop and/ or nursery and get into the smell of Christmas by getting a potted tree. It could remain potted and left outside or planted in the garden and reused next year. The taste of mulled wine and mince pies is so much nicer with the fresh lingering smell of pine…
