Hello all! Merry Christmas
Today I went decoration shopping on Fuencarral! Of course one of the busiest streets in Madrid all year round, today it was especially busy! With a delicious cup of hot chocolate in my left hand, armed with my credit card in my right, I searched all the beautiful decor shops and discovered a beautiful tree sprinkled with white dusting of snow! It is the perfect height of 150cm to fill the middle of my white wall. I have chosen white glittered reindeer and gold bowties to hang on the tree – a perfect traditional and modern twist to this years’ festive feature. I have also put up a cheeky little window decal Santa on my window – see if you can spot it walking past 😉
With a white and gold theme this year, with most of my Christmas balls and baubles are glittered gold. Against the white backdrop of my cosy apartment, the warm yellow tones of the candles have really put me in the Christmas spirit! It’s sooo cold this year so I haven’t yet ventured out to see the lights and Christmas shapes in Plaza Mayor as my silk pjamas are far too nice to take off! Maybe I should even get them monogrammed with my initials considering I spend so much time in them! I think I’ll add them to my wishlist found here. Or if you want to see me totally unwrapped, let’s get in touch!
I will be cooking later for some friends too, but for now, I have to get busy decking the halls with the rest of the items! My favourite has to be the little gold ribbon presents I’ve adorned on the shelves, I can only imagine how bare the apartment will look in contrast to how full it is currently.
What is your favourite? Gold and White or Red and Green? Or maybe you will be a bit wild with Blue and Purple!!
