My Midlife Fashion, The White Company Eucalyptus and winterberry garland, the white company cascading fairy lights

Morning ladies, I don't know about you but I can't believe it's going to be the 1st of December tomorrow.  The fact we're just over 3 weeks till Christmas Day means it really is time to seriously start getting everything ready.  So after sharing my gift guides, today I thought it would be fun to look at Christmas decorations for the home.

Apart from having down time to spend with loved ones & Christmas Day itself, not to mention all the food treats & presents.  One of the things I really enjoy doing is decorating the house & getting the Christmas tree up.  I think most people will agree that Christmas is the time of year that our homes really come to life & I for one certainly love as many fairy lights as possible.

We generally don't put our decorations up until after my birthday (which is early December) but our son is always itching to get them out as soon as possible.  So he was delighted when I received this beautiful  Eucalyptus & Winterberry Garland from The White Company.  

A mixture of winterberries, firs, frosted pine cones & branches this garland is perfect for dressing up any part of your home from the banister in your hallway, to adoring your fireplace or mantle piece or even down the centre of your dining table Christmas Day.

As you can see from the above pictures I have hung my garland in our hallway along the handrail of our banister, attaching it with red velvet ribbon that I bought from eBay here & then intertwined with these fairy lights.  Although I was also tempted to hang it around the archway of our front door to create an ultimate festive welcome but in the end opted for the hallway so that I could enjoy its beauty too :-)

Hat - John Lewis
Scarf - Hush
Breton - John Lewis
Tuxedo Jacket - French Connection
Boots - Office

It's a bit of a monochrome, pattern clash kind of hump day for me & I can highly recommend the Zara scarf if you mange to spot it in store as it's a real beaut for the money but if you can't find it & fancy something similar then the Hush one I've linked to above is similar just with smaller stars.

So ladies anyone got their Christmas decorations out yet?  Or is it too soon for you?  Don't forget if you're on the lookout for some new decorations you can get 15% off at The White Company here, or perhaps even treat yourself or your home to a few other gorgeous pieces.  Just remember to use code AP238 :-)
