Mama’s still stylish Christmas decorations!

This will be my second Christmas as a mama. The first I was still in that new-born haze so Christmas had to take a little bit of a back seat plus at only four months Annie certainly didn’t understand what all the fuss was about! However at 16 months she engages much more and although she won’t understand everything; I know she’ll love looking at all the decorations and the lights. Plus I’m excited to start building our family Christmas traditions.

I definitely want to introduce an element of childish Christmas fun into our décor this year. I can’t bear to be the mama that doesn’t let her child decorate the tree because she wants it all to be colour co-ordinated! Growing up our decorations represented our family history, my mum still kept the toilet roll holder snow men that we made at nursery and still gets them out every year even though they are totally battered now! Christmas is about children and I can’t wait to point out Father Christmas and Rudolph to little Annie.   However this is me(!) and I still want to keep it a little bit stylish so I have rounded up a few of my favourite decorations that your children will love and will still work with your décor!
