Copper Christmas: Part 2 “Decor”

It’s nearly Christmas!

December really has flown by. So, in the second part of my Christmas posts, I thought I’d show you around our festive decorations a little more.

A month or so ago, I found a 1970’s copper and marble drinks trolley on ebay and fell in love with it. I thought it would be a great purchase for our lounge and look great for the festive season as well as all year round.( I also recently found out that my great grandma had a similar one in gold from the 70’s! – How sweet!)

Drinks trolleys seem to be coming back into fashion and can be quite expensive when bought new so I’d definitely recommend hunting down an original piece on ebay or in charity shops.

I’ve stocked our trolley full of drinks ready for our guests and have put out our copper glasses from TKMAXX. The copper vases are from habitat which I managed to grab in the sale. They are more ornamental rather than for flowers so I decided to put some fake wintry pieces in them that I picked up from Wilkinsons.

We purchased our snow speckled Christmas tree (Our first proper one!- how exciting!) from ebay and shopped around for lots of metallic baubles in brighton.  Most of our tree decorations were purchased from next, including the large gold ones which I love. I also managed to find some grey marble ones from H&M home which I think are my favourite!

For the kitchen, I bought the majority of our table decor from H&M home. They have some beautiful things in stock at the moment particularly in metallics and greys.

Our dining table is a 1950’s one which was given to us. We sanded the legs down and re painted and varnished the top in a mint green to match our hallway which runs straight into the kitchen.

I was only going to decorate the lounge this Christmas but because it’s our first home together, I got carried away and now most rooms have something festive in them! To spread the festive cheer around the home, we purchased some garlands and wreaths from The Range and B&Q and added them to any spare mirrors and doors!!

So, there we have it, our festive decorations. Enjoy & thanks for reading!
