Festive Homeware & Christmas Decorations

I've never been one of those people that counts down to putting up their Christmas tree on 1st December, don't get me wrong I love Christmas but it just almost feels too soon especially having been brought up observing the Twelfth Night tradition of putting the tree up on Christmas Eve. That being said I do like to introduce one of two Christmas decorations before then to get in the spirit so I thought I'd compile a list of some of the best decorations I've seen over the past couple of weeks which look great on there own if you maybe don't have space for a tree, are away over the holidays, or just want to add a little touch of something festive now.

1. Merry Christmas Bunting - Sass & Belle - £7.00
2. Silver Bells Decorations - Waitrose - £3.50
3. Cushion - M&S - £12.00
4. Noel Sign - Waitrose - £4.00
5. 'Be Merry, Be Awesome, Be You' Decorations - H&M - £3.99

I love these heart and star decorations from Waitrose made of little silver bells. They're currently out of stock at my local branch (I should have bought them when I first saw them!) but I'll be popping in again before Christmas to hopefully pick up a pair.

Christmas cushions are great to add to the sofa or a bed to make it extra cosy and this one from M&S is so cute and not too festive to look out of place on display across the winter months. I'm currently trying to resist buying another set of festive bedding this year!

H&M is fast becoming one of my favourite places to shop for homeware, I just wish they had more stores carrying their home range. I recently visited the H&M on Oxford Street (the one just along from Topshop) to look at the home section and they had some lovely Christmas things including these 'Be Merry, Be Awesome, Be You' gold hanging decorations.

6. Metal Diamond Decorations - H&M - £6.99
7. Wooden Trees - Wilko - £3.00
8. Wonderful Time Plaque - M&S - £10.00
9. Tartan Heart - Wilko - £1.00
10. Standing Reindeer - Sass & Belle - £7.50

'The Most Wonderful Time of the Year' plaque from M&S would look great hung on it's own or alongside a full on festive display! Little hanging plaques like this and the Sass & Belle 'Merry Christmas' bunting featured above are a great way to inject a touch of Christmas without having to spend much or buy a new tree.

The standing reindeer caught my eye straight away in Sass & Belle, there's also a smaller version available and I think I might have to pick one up to put in my room on my perfume shelf.

I really like these little tartan fabric hearts available at Wilko for just £1. You could use them on a tree but they would also be ideal for hanging around a room or you could string them along ribbon to make your own bunting if you're feeling crafty! The wooden trees are also from Wilko and would look great on a mantelpiece or as a table decoration.
