Christmas at Casa de Dolly

Hurrah, it’s Christmas time! I’m SUCH a festive person and I got to decorate my own place for the very first time this year. I thought I’d go over board but I’ve actually been very restrained.  I’ve had to be a bit careful with the amount I’ve spent but I’m really pleased with the look of the place.

Starting with my front door

I love a traditional wreath but I thought this was a little different. Cheap and cheerful, about £8 from Wilkinson’s.

My bathroom

A tiny pink tree from Poundland!

Cute Noel from Wilkinson’s for a few quid.

My table is tiny so I can’t have a proper centre piece. I made my candles festive instead.

Glass tealight holders- Ikea, Owl tealight holder- Accesorize, White Mistletoe candle- Sainsbury’s, Gold reindeer tealight holder- Sainsbury’s.

I couldn’t escape the tradition of putting my cards on the door

and decorating Pugsley

and finally- THE TREE!  Since our ceilings are so high we got a 7ft tree.

It still looks tiny! I went for a gold and white theme as my living room is black, white and yellow.  I love special decorations and these are the first in my collection.

From the Christmas shop in NYC.

I really love special tree decorations and look forward to building my collection.

So that’s it! My cheap and cheerful Christmas.
