Decorating your home at this time of the year is a great way to get in to the festive spirit. It's not always easy to get started, the thought of getting everything out of storage and sorting out tangled up fairy lights but you know you always feel so much happier afterwards and the house feels so much cheerier and welcoming.
The Christmas tree is just the start, there is so much more you can do to make the house feel extra special. It's a good idea to put on a Christmas movie or CD to help create the right festive mood.
Fairy lights at the window look so effective from both inside the house and are very welcoming from outside too. Combining the fairy lights with some winter leaf garlands and other Christmas decorations looks very effective. These traditional fairy lights in warm white are available from Argos for just £3.99
Adding pine cones to the fire place is a nice idea and this great little mouse in his red and grey tweed outfit is a great addition and available to purchase from our Mango Tree Home accents.
We love these hanging stockings purchased from a charity shop in Somerset but this would be a fun and simple project to make your own one from bits of left over material and some ribbon.
So enjoy this festive season and we wish you a warm and Merry Christmas with lots of joy and fun from all of us at Mango Tree.
