I love the ritual of getting the tree and the decorations down from the loft (yes we have a fake one). I remember clearly making paper chains with my dad and siblings and arguing with my mum over whether we could hang the tinsel we so loved around the place (at the time I thought she was being a scrooge, now I totally get it, we are a tinsel free zone too ;)).
Christmas is a the time when my first child was born (just a few days before) and it's now the time we await our second. It's a really special time for my family for sure.
I thought it would be fun to pick out some of my favourite decorations from HomeSense. Although we have tons and tons of ornaments for the tree I totally go overboard each year picking up new additions. We're not the type of family to have a 'theme' for our tree, its more like the most colourful and packed with fun the better!
I love these felt animal decorations, especially the spotty deer, they are only £2.99 as well. How cute is the pom pom garland too, which are the same price as the felt animal decorations.
I love these candle holders, in my favourite colour (turquoise) but with a pearly sheen and together with the white makes for a lovely holiday feeling. There's nothing more comforting than the glow of a candle, even better if it has a Christmassy scent (my favourite is spiced apple). You can get these for £6.99.
I love the idea of these felt garlands to use on the tree instead of tinsel (did I mention I hate tinsel?) they also come in at £6.99
Last but not least, what about this turquoise origami penguin decoration? Why not hey? This one is a bit pricey at £5.99 but still really good value for tree decorations I think, and certainly unique!
As always stock in HomeSense differs from store to store but I'd defo recommend popping in to see what they have! We're off to our local one next week to pick up some new decorations for the tree this year, I'm sure we'll come away with much more than that though, always the way!
