Weekend plans…

I’ve been so busy this week, thankfully it’s only one week now till my holiday starts, phew! And as Christmas is nearing closer, I think it’s definitely time to get out the decorations and start getting into the festive spirit! Since I don’t actually have any Christmas decorations, I better get creative, I love the idea of using moss and ribbons and keeping things simple. And maybe a bit of glitz! I’ve been getting loads of Christmas decor inspiration over at Federica’s blog, Sweet as a Candy, so pop over if you  need some too!

This weekend I’m planning on a bit of Christmas shopping and some decorating. I’ve got my sister’s 30th to celebrate which will be fun, plus a braai and a long walk planned, sounding busy already! What are your plans, anything exciting? How’s your decorating going? Have a great weekend!

    thumbs up to using natural elements as decoration – i put a few sprigs of pine tree branches around the house in glass jars – simple but lovely.

    I love those first two photos. Great neutral colors and the hanging silver ornaments are beautiful. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Lana, I love the Christmas decorating ideas you found. They are so simple, yet lovely!
    What on earth is a 'braai'?

    Thanks for all the comments, Watson, brilliant idea, that's exactly what I was planning on doing this weekend, since there's a pine grove near my home! And Sarah, a braai is what us South Africans call a barbecue!
