It's taken me a while to finish but finally I have Christmas-ified my kitchen dresser!
I stuck with my favourite Christmassy colours of pinky red and icy blue, and couldn't resist hanging up half a length of my Christmas star paper bunting. I haven't changed an awful lot, it was more a matter of adapting than chucking out the old and in with the new. I've piled up some silver baubles on the glass cake stand and the candle lamp on top of the dresser is from Ikea. I forgot I had this set of fairy lights and I think I'm going to keep them up all year round, just like the lights around the mirror in my sitting room.
Inspired by a post on bright.bazaar I filled a clear glass jug with paper cupcake cases which you can see to the left of the vintage typewriter. I love how cute the candy canes look in the little blue jug, they're going to be used as part of my gift wrapping in a couple of weeks' time.
I put eucalyptus branches with the red berries so there's a faint but lovely aroma wafting from the dresser. And if you look closely you can just see the little fairy perched between the vintage china! My sister gave me her years ago and she usually sits on top of my Christmas tree. But as this year we've decorated branches instead of a tree I thought she'd be happy nestled in between some pretty china.
And in case you missed the photo of my Christmas branches, here it is!
Are you feeling Christmassy?
