It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Yesterday we bought our Christmas tree.  We always buy a real one, a Nordman Fir so a non drop tree, put it in a stand and keep it well watered.  That way it will last way past Christmas.

I love decorating the tree, this year the theme was red and gold. (Excuse the background wall, we have stripped the paper off getting ready for redecoration in the New Year).

Neil puts the lights up around the house.  Firstly the icicle lights over the Inglenook.

Cards all written, Christmas cake made, so just some present wrapping to do and some shopping to get in and we’ll be all ready for Christmas.

The B&B is still open over Christmas http://www.lodgehousebandbsomerset.co.uk

On making a Christmas wreath again

 

I like to make my Christmas wreath for the front door each year completely from scratch. This year 2 friends came over to make wreaths at the same time, so firstly we gathered all the foliage and willow whips from the garden.

Here are some photos of us making the wreaths this year.
