Deck the Halls (With Hand Painted Christmas Decorations)

Christmas is hugely important in our house, for celebrating with friends and family and appreciating what we have, and it is really important to us that we create equally magical Christmases for our little ones.
I loved Christmas as a child and decorating the tree was one of the most exciting parts, holding beautiful bejewelled baubles and tiny little snow globes and creating our own little wonderland in the front room. So in this vein we have decided to not only get the babies helping with the decorating but making the decorations themselves. So last week we went to a pottery cafe and made footprint decorations and some interesting beautiful hand painted angels by Miss Honey Bea herself. (Nothing a beautiful ribbon can't prettify anyway!) She loved it and is forever taking baubles off the tree only to redecorate it again. Hours of fun, while I'm writing bloody Christmas cards!

  1. Aw, what a cutie! I can't wait until next Christmas when Amelie will be old enough to get excited like I do ;)
