The Video: Christmas Decor


......

Yep, that's right, I said video! I've wanted to make a collage-style video for a long time but I just never really had any motivation to actually do it. But I decided there was no better time than the festive season and I'm feeling very inspired with my blog ever since I started blogmas. I really enjoyed filming it and it's definitely something I'd like to do more in 2016. I'd love to know your thoughts about the video - I'm very nervous about it *hides away in the corner* 

Anyway, onto the Christmas decor! We got our tree in Ikea this year and I'm in love with it. It's the perfect height and it's full of branches - no bald spots in sight. My Mam wants to buy a fake tree for next year, but I'm quite apprehensive about it. I just love real trees and that smell.... yum! As for the decorations, we don't really have a theme. We've collected different baubles and ornaments over the years and I think it creates a nice story. We have a few vintage decorations like the two Santa Claus candles that we've had in our family for years. The rest of our decor includes lots of fairy lights to make the place cosy.

I also Christmas-ified my bedroom with some new Christmassy sheets. I got these ones in Penneys and they're nice and simple. They're grey with little skis and mountains with snow on it - so cute! There's a hint of red on the sheets so to bring that colour out I added a tartan throw, which is also from Penneys. There both incredibly soft and they don't feel like there from Penneys at all, they feel much more expensive. Penneys have absolutely killed it with both their clothes and homeware stock this year, let's hope it continues in 2016!


Did you like my festive video?
And would you like to see more video content in 2016?

Happy Blogmas!

Love,
Cliona xx

    I've also always wanted to make a video like this but I don't think I have a good enough camera to do it with that quality!

  2. Your bed looks so cozy! My family is the same way with our Christmas tree! We don't have a theme, but everything on it is very sentimental! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
