Christmas cupcakes

Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Relaxing? I hope so. I had a great weekend even though the weather was a bit dismal. I managed to get to Chart Farm and pick some roses despite the drizzle, it was actually so beautiful! I had fun doing some baking and Christmas gift wrapping, I am so organised this year!

I thought I’d show you a little bit of my Christmas inspiration since it is just around the corner. My tip for you, get crafty! I had fun playing around with plain old brown craft paper, white paper doilies, lace and ribbon, all so easy! Oh and i cut the reindeer out from some Christmas serviettes, aren’t they cute? Let me know what you have planned for your Christmas this year?
