With just 4 weeks to go, the advent of the Festive Season is truly upon us now.
Therefore it is just fitting to get Christmassy - and what better way to start doing it than through Christmas home decorating!
For weeks I've busied myself preparing for this most anticipated time of the year.
As soon as we've decided we are not going to the Philippines this December, I immediately started my shopping on Christmas decors - this was as early as the beginning of September.
I am excited. Dearest Husband and even Little Girl are both excited as well.
You see, this will be our first Christmas in England as a family as the past 2 Decembers we were in the Philippines.
This means, this will be our first time to decorate our house as a Christmas family home.
The last time we'd put up our tree and rest of the decorations was 3 years ago - while still pregnant with my little girl.
After that, the few days leading to December was always about getting ready for our Philippine holiday and we don't return until after the New Year's where obviously everything's back to normal.
And as I've promised in my last post, here are a few snaps of our Christmas ready home.
It took me a week to get into this stage of completion.
And we've opted for the red and gold colour scheme.
Here is our tree taking the center stage of our front room.
Put up at 37 days to Christmas, it is indeed a red and gold vision of the Festive Season to come.
Mummy's little helper- eagerly posing with her first ever Christmas tree!
And our fireplace is Christmas ready as well
A closer look at our mantelpiece
And some Christmas cushions to add more to the festive feeling
Our front room is indeed Christmas ready!
And our dining room too, had a Christmas transformation
Even our kitchen has a few touches of Christmas - with some Christmas ornaments on top of our kitchen cabinet and a poinsettia plant by our kitchen sink.
And with this sight, I have no doubt Santa has no way of missing our home when he does his usual Christmas rounds. Our front entrance at night.
Even our downstairs toilet sign had a Christmas make over as well !
(I know it's a bit over the top but I am pretty sure you can all forgive me for this - after all, it's Christmas !)
And with just 30 days left to Christmas, I am now at the start of writing my Christmas cards.
Then Christmas shopping next - the most exciting part !
What about you? Have you done any Christmas decorating yet?
Where are you now in your Christmas preparations?
Good night everybody!
