Thursday Treats: It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

December 19, 2013

This is it, the last Thursday Treats of 2013! I’ll be trying my hardest to take some time away from the internet between Christmas and New Year (who am I kidding?!) so I won’t be posting a Treats post next week. Let’s make this final one a complete blinder!

Who’s getting excited? I’ll tell you who is in our house – Gareth! We went to buy our tree last weekend and despite living in a very modest (read: tiny) two bedroom house, he insisted on buying the biggest tree in the shop, a 7 foot monster! It is practically bursting out of our living room but whatever makes him happy makes me happy. The cats are also enjoying their new playground..!

I’ve got most of my gift buying done now too (woohoo!) and I’m now taking on the role of expert Pinterest-scourer for canapé ideas. I’ve been tasked with making them (from scratch!) for Christmas day with my family. It may not be the most important role, but I’m throwing myself into it wholeheartedly. I am so making these and doing this!

    Interesting article about the bride wearing her mum’s/grandma’s dress- I’ll be wearing my mum’s dress when I get married in August. It’s a bargain at the cost of a dry clean, really nice to have that continuity, and amazing how it fits perfectly, too. My mum had it tailor made in Eastern Germany in the 70s. And no, it doesn’t look like Kate’s 😉
    There is something nice about having your own dress as well, so for the evening I’ve bought a 1930s dress (a flea market find). I have to say, having read a number of your recent articles I am mighty glad I never even set foot in a bridal boutique.
    Anyone else wearing their mum’s dress? (or their nan’s?)

  2. i really love the bride in her mum and grandmas dress… i wish i could be as tiny as my mum AND grandma on my wedding day so i could wear either of their dresses, but i was blessed with curves hahaha!

    i also loved seeing the owl and the pussycat themed ideas… so cute!

    well . . .i cant decide which is my fave part of this post… oh yes i can!! who knew a song with the words ‘even if i farted and followed’ through in could be so lovely?!?! haha and im not wearing my nannas dress! as much as i wouldve loved to as it was stuning, and similar to kates actually, but i am wearing a £75 vintage one form the 30’s and i cannot wait. bridal boutiques werent for me either! 😉 ahhh i think you deserve to have an award on your mantel piece! xx
