Christmas Decoration Haul

If anyone knows me, you will know that I am completely crazy about Christmas. This time year is definitely my favourite as you can happily eat all of the food in sight, enjoy twinkling lights and of course, break the bank buying decorations. This will be our first Christmas together in our first home which is really exciting, even though we won’t be spending the majority of the big day together, it is still nice to go mad with a few decorations!

After a little while of trying to convince my other half to start getting ready for December, he finally let me start buying things to decorate our house with!! As mentioned above, this is our first Christmas in our home together and we are still trying to budget each month, so I have tried to be as thrifty as possible when it comes to buying bits and bobs. So, I thought I would share some of my finds below.

Christmas Tree

Price: £179.99
Where Did I Get It: Homeleigh Garden Centre, Launceston

Okay, so this isn’t exactly the cheapest of trees, but I had to find the perfect tree. I spent hours looking through websites online before I decided on this tree. I think it is hard to buy one online as you don’t know how full it is or what quality it will be. Homeleigh Garden Center in Launceston is only about a 45-minute drive from us, and when I lived at home, my mum got hers from there too. I had to see it properly before I committed to buying it, and as you can see it is incredible. The tree does come in two sizes, but I thought f*ck it and went for the 7ft version. I would definitely recommend seeing an artificial tree properly before buying it, as I doubt they look as good as they do in the pictures on the website. Also, if you are a local to the area a visit to Homeleigh is a must as it is so magical during Christmas time!

I really hate tinsel and anything “tatty”, so I wanted lighter colours to fit into our lounge’s decor hence the white/silver tones. I’m pretty happy with everything I have purchased and I could easily spend hundreds of pounds on Xmas decorations! We also managed to get the tree at the top of the stairs for free, which is fab!

As we started with no Christmas decorations other than some lights and a tiny fibre optic tree, and I think we did pretty well! I really love the festive season, and I would love to know if you have found any bargains? Let me know in the comments below!
