Getting Festive With The Christmas Boutique ♥

There are just forty-eight days left until Christmas (say WHAT?!) and this year I'd like to really decorate our home quite nicely, getting a new tree and making a fuss over the mantlepiece so that our home feels festive, cosy and as Christmassy as it can possibly be. I recently received a box of goodies from The Christmas Boutique* and I was so excited to get in the festive mood and unwrap my new decorations. Let me show you what I received.

 First up is my favourite item from the box, the Extra Long Tower House Felt Advent Calender with fabric pockets. I had a really wanted to get a fabric pocket advent calender this year as I'd like to put other bits and bobs in the advent calender rather then chocolate and this calender is big enough to include some decent size surprises. My only problem is that this advent calender is super long, too long to hang on my doors as the end falls on the floor and I don't think I have space on any wall for it so I have to try and find a suitable space. This advent calender is just £12.99.

This is another item I love, the Christmas Nativity Nine Piece Set in red and cream. It's important for me to have some decorations which reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and I love that this is my first ever nativity scene, it's wonderful. I have fond memories of playing with my Grandmothers nativity scene as a child (until she glued down the figures!) so I hope my son is just as fond of these and in learning the nativity story too. The red and cream colour matches my living room perfectly too. This is £34.99.

These Retro Paper Honeycomb Pom Poms have me reminiscing of my childhood Christmases and I think these will be a lovely addition to my Christmas decor this year. I'm not sure I'll be using the pink as part of my display but I have other plans for them in my bedroom. I'm not against pink for the festive season though, I have a pink handmade Christmas stocking. These are £4.99 for a pack of four.

This Hanging Metal Christmas Bird fat ball holder was a nice thing to see in the box. I regularly throw out bread to the robin who lives in our garden but this year he'll be getting the gift of a delicious fat ball on his festive holder. It's always nice to think of the birds once the cold, harsh weather arrives. This is £7.99.

 This Detailed Wall Mounted Christmas Moose Head in magenta metallic finish isn't to my personal tastes but I do know so many people who love stag/moose head decor. I do like the magenta colour though. I wouldn't be able to mount this to my wall as I live in a rented property but I was thinking I could put it on my dressing table to hang my rings off, it might work! This is £6.50.

The Small & Large Faux Snowball Christmas Display Confetti Set was a fun addition to the box. These would be lovely to adorn window displays and centerpieces with and I have some ideas for them already. These are £7.99 for the two packs.

The Christmas Boutique offers a whole range of gorgeous Christmas decorations to suit many different style tastes and decor colours all at great prices too. I have my eye on a few of their products to add to my decorations this year and as a a bunting/garland and a candle addict I'm a huge fan of their range of Washing Line Calenders and their Christmas Lanterns

You can browse and purchase the wide range of gorgeous decorations The Christmas Boutique have to offer on their website.
