ABC christmas tree This year it’s all about the fun of decorating an ABC Christmas tree with kids and decorate like a kid. I think there’s a lot of pressure around this time of year to dress and show your perfect Christmas tree.

When John Lewis and Partners asked me if I would like to create my version of their ABC tree, my son said Yes!

I used John Lewis & Partners pre-lit snowy spruce 7 feet Christmas tree. ABC christmas tree The run up to Christmas should be exciting and happy for the kids, and whilst they are young, giving them those wonderful Christmas memories are a gift on their own. I absolutely loved decorating this tree with my son. To decorate like a child meant not thinking too much about the details, such as the design,colour scheme, and where each piece should go.

You can place any of the baubles anywhere ( literally decorate like a kid), and it just turns out fun, colourful and striking. I love how John Lewis and Partners have come up with their theme trees this year.  Want to decorate an ABC tree? Then everything is there for you to pick to create your own version.

How cute is that llama tree decor and rainbow heart bauble?

Of course, you could customise your by mixing and matching with other theme baubles or those that you already own. So, it really didn’t take long to do our tree.  It was a joy and even therapeutic to place the colours randomly in any place that took our fancy. What do you think?

I’m secretly calling this ABC Christmas tree my happiness tree.Have a beautiful day all x

H&M and Jonathan Adler (AD) I’m so excited to announce the H&M Home and Jonathan Adler collaboration is about to hit the stores. H&M and Jonathan Adler I’ve been a fan of Jonathan Adler’s designs for as long as I can remember. His use of colours and patterns are bold, fun and beautiful.

I remembered coveting all the design and furniture he used to style the Parker Palm Springs hotel when I visited. It’s such great news to find out that his collection will now be available on the high street via his H&M collaboration. H&M and Jonathan Adler I was excited to be offered the opportunity to pick a few of my favourite pieces from the new H&M Home and Jonathan Adler collaboration, to style at home. Here it is. H&M and Jonathan Adler Absolutely adore this vase. I’ve followed Jonathan Adler’s lead, and placed some beautiful Hydrangeas in to give the faces a floral head. I couldn’t resist those super cute cushions. The face cushions match the vase. and that Naughty and Nice cushion is just so fun. I love how the black, white and gold all go so well together and especially against my pink and grey backdrop. This H&M Home and Jonathan Adler candlebra is going to fly off the shelves in store, judging by all the comments I have received on it.

It has a male version on the other side. The pieces are all so well made, and true to his signature style.

Finally, if you fancy that Jonathan Adler glamorous, maximalist and modern aesthetic in your home, then head to H&M.

Yes you read it rightly.

It may only be October, and whilst everyone is preparing for Halloween, I’ve decided to work on my Christmas table.

Better be prepared than never right?

I’ve gone for a fun Glamour look, filled with pastel colours.

I found some amazing pieces from Littlewoods online to help me create this look. decorate a christmas table Firstly, I wanted a dinner set that looked elegant and festive, but could later reuse for other occasions.

This 18 piece gold band dinner set by Waterside from Littlewoods online fitted the bill.  The white of the plates were a perfect blank canvas to style against.

White is good, because it’s an easy backdrop if you are using a variety of colours or different themes.

The gold rims give the table a festive glamour feel.

I’ve enhanced the place settings with patterned pink napkins, baubles, crackers and gold cutlery. These pastel coloured Polka wine glasses by LSA International, also from Littlewoods online, really add that pop of pastel and fun to the table.

The glasses come in a set of 4 with pink, yellow, blue and mint. Here’s my other favourite find, iridescent baubles from Littlewoods online.

I’ve suspended them from the chandelier to create a festive snowdrops effect. Finally, here’s my fireplace painted in Graham and Brown’s Penelope eggshell paint.

I just adore that shade of pink. Do you like it?

I’ve adorned my fireplace with a pretty Silver grey and white berry garland, also from Littlewoods online.

That silvery grey is absolutely gorgeous, and really makes it look like a frosty Wintery day, but thank goodness without the cold.

I’ve suspended some baubles from the garland to add colour. decorate a christmas table So here it is, my Christmas dining table with the suspended baubles and garland.

Incidentally, if you are wondering about the other decor, the 3 colour circle wall mirror and Pink tassel floor lamp are also from Littlewoods online.
