Although I love Christmas, I don’t like to decorate our home before the 6th of december. That’s because in the Netherlands, we first celebrate ‘Sinterklaas’, a celebration with lots of gifts for the kids.
Today I made an exception. But just a small, tiny one. Very simple too. And only because my husband finally finished painting our new mantel
About 2 weeks ago I found some pretty, sparkling Christmas ornaments in a store and I couldn’t resist.
I arranged them on my selfmade plate stand (just a grey plate and a white candle holder glued together) and put a little basket filled with lace and trimming next to it. I love this as it’s so old fashioned and romantic at the same time! And what do you think of the bracelet? I can’t remember where I bought it but I really love it.
With a few doilies, photo frames (still without photos!) and small vases with flowers I finished it off and was happy enough to shoot some photos.
Simple but pretty.
I’m already looking forward to make some Christmas stockings for our girls to hang on the mantel!
For all color lovers, here’s the color palette…..
PS: I thought it was time to make a new layout for my site. Hope you like the bright look!
