For the first time ever, this year we are hosting on Christmas day. It’s going to be a bijou affair, which is perfect for us as first timers. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve hosted BBQs and family dos before, but Christmas just screams pressure for me. What if the turkey just isn’t tasty? What if, what if, what if?! You get the picture. However, I am going to do my utter best to be super organised and quite frankly Mrs Christmas this year.
I thought it’d be fun to put together a fun guide of decorations, homewear, fashion and kitchenware from Etsy if you are hosting a cosy festive gathering over Christmas.
In The Kitchen
Chopping the veg on Christmas Eve will be a pleasure rather than a chore with a gorgeous custom wooden chopping board, so cute! Or how about a sophisticated slate cheese board for those early evening cheese cravings? Washing up just got stylish with a lovely tree print tea towel and not forgetting the oven gloves for removing the prized turkey from the oven. One to come out every festive season me thinks!
The Dinner Table
Practical meets stylish with these fun festive finds! Add a touch of cheer with personalised Christmas dinner or serving plates, I am sure my little boys will eat all their brussels sprouts off of these. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such stylish crackers and no arguments over who owns which cracker, win win. The rose gold napkins will look really lovely alongside the wreath place name cards. Don’t forget to forage a little greenery for the centre and that’s your Christmas table sorted.

If you have yet to find a wreath for your front door then how about a beautiful dried flower wreath that will last into 2019 too? The wooden mistletoe decoration would look lovely in my hall and the personalised wreath would look fab on my fireplace. On the hunt for wrapping paper with a touch of unique? How about the chalkboard wrap, teamed with a white pen? Very chic.

I love the fun the turkey is dry T, I mean if it does all go wrong, at least I can have a giggle about it! The Mr and Mrs Christmas aprons are really cute and will become an annual tradition each Christmas, a really lovely touch to the festivities. I love any excuse for a touch of sparkle which is why I think the glitter star hair pins would look very cute. For those of you that are getting hitched soon, how about a last Christmas as a miss Christmas jumper?
OK so now I am even more excited for Christmas! Ekk! xo Lou
