Christmas eve!!!

Only one sleep to go! Yay!
I love Christmas Eve almost better than the actual day, there is so much anticipation and the whole family is kind of extra hyped and excited and happy! I have tried to decorate our family room this year to make it feel a bit more special, as I am hosting Christmas lunch tomorrow for my family ( 16 people, so not too big).
These are some pictures of my twiggy table centre with hanging decorations that I crocheted. I like the little granny christmas trees, they were so easy and I think look really sweet! Thanks to the Royal Sisters for the great pattern. Also hung up the snowflakes that I showed you before.

I also made a couple of Lucy at attic 24's lovely decorations, they took a bit more time but were fun to make.

This is a corner of our family room with our wonky Christmas tree. ( excuse the mess, I think I was about to do a bit of tidying up after these photos) I have strung paper balls across the room and also my knitted buntings, although I could have done with more of them.

I love my paper balls, especially the dotty ones! Not traditional christmas colours, I know, but still festive and partyish I think!

Finally, I tried to take a shot of the second scarf I made for my other sister, it's a bit dark, but I think you can get the idea. I hope she likes it!

So I hope you all have a great day tomorrow and actually have time to sit back and enjoy all the hard work and fun effort that goes into the Christmas festivities, and I hope Santa brings you something special!!

Merry Christmas and thank you all for having a look at my humble blog. It's been fun 5 months!

  3. Hi, I just stumbled across your blog via jellywares. I love all your crochet, especially the buttons and the pippi longstocking scarf. I can't wait to get to a spotlight to get some cotton.
    Your tree decs are gorgeous too. Lucy at Attic 24 is very inspiring isn't she.
