Blogmas Day 4 – How I wish I could decorate for Christmas…

Hi everyone, 

I hope all is well and you are having a lovely Tuesday! So today I thought I would start up the blogmas posts specifically focusing on Christmas, because I think it’s about time! 

At home, we kind of haven’t decorated yet. Usually we would decorate on the 8th December, that’s our Christmas tradition of decorating. Yet, as the years went by, decorating was done less and less. Losing somebody close to your family, can do that. Why should I decorate when that person’s gone? That’s a question I am sure that a lot of people ask when losing someone close to them and Christmas becomes another normal day of the year. 

Yet even this being so, I try my best to bring that lost Christmas spirit back into our house. Even though I do not do this in a pushy, non-forceful way. I usually decorate in my room little bits but I take it as my role to do the Christmas Tree. But I haven’t done that yet and so this post is if I had my home, what would be my favourite decorations to put up. I hope that makes sense, in my mind it does anyways. 

#1 The Christmas Tree 

I couldn’t choose between these two but I guess I would want it a bit big, and I like the ones that are readily covered with snow. And I love the idea of putting silver or gold bobbles or ornaments hanging on the Christmas tree. I also prefer that gold light wrapped with it. I would place it either near a fireplace or if my future house would have these large windows as the second picture, I would place it right in the corner. I can dream ok! 

#2 Silver Ornaments 

As I said, I would love to fill up my Christmas tree with silver ornaments of different styles, shapes and sizes! I especially love those silver bobbles that come in a glitter style!! I think those are too cute!  

I love these types of ornaments too, those shaped as Christmas trees, or snowflakes or angels. I think with the bobbles of above, they would go perfectly and some gold light! 

#3 Fireplace Decor 

I would definitely want a fireplace to decorate and I would use stockings for sure. I like the idea of white beige stockings but then the traditional red stockings are also cute especially paired with my white Christmas tree !!  I think I would also add some fairy lights with how the fireplaces are decorated in the photos above! 

#4 Christmas Wreath 

Now I don’t like the normal green ones that we all see but like i enjoy a white Christmas tree I like white Christmas wreaths as well. But then I would love to see red included in it too! And what would be perfect is if like that last image above, they would include fairy lights as well!! I think that would be perfect! 

#5 Candles … and lots and lots of Candles!! 

Ok so first we have those candles which are decorated so cutely, I would put these all over my house!! I love all these above, they’re all so different and beautiful! 

But then I would also have those scented ones from Yankee, which smell perfectly!! These are the scents I would love to smell! These all must smell so christmass-y!! But then I actually got the Christmas Cookie and it’s burning at the moment whilst writing this post! I love it!! 

So you could say that this is the only Christmas decor put up in my room haha!! And that’s it for my if I would have my own house, what Christmas decorations are a must for me! I hope you enjoyed reading, I hope to put up a blog post on my actually Christmas decor later on in my blogmas journey!

Ingredients – 

  • 250g Morning Coffee biscuits – I had mine shipped from Malta curtesy of my parents
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 45g desiccated coconut (plus a extra for rolling the balls)
  • 1 (397g) tin condensed milk

Instructions –

  • Crush the biscuits into tiny little pieces into a large bowl – best way to do this is to place the biscuits in a small plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin.
  • Then add 45g of coconut pieces and 5 table spoons of cocoa powder to the mixture
  • Then add 1 whole tin of condensed milk (I like adding half and half so to make sure you mix your whole mixture.
  • And then here comes the messy part – with your hands you are going to take from the mixture and roll it into small balls.
  • After you have used up all the mixture, sprinkle with coconut and there you have coconut balls.
