Styling your Christmas with Homesense
Homesense is a shop that people adore.
You can’t buy online, you have to go in store as their stock changes regularly and that is a huge part of the fun. It is eclectic, stylish, great value and interesting and they organise their displays so well it is easy to visualise how your home could look.
What Homesense do particularly well is Christmas.
They don’t just showcase one style they showcase many and group the items in that style together. This makes it so much easy to envisage your Christmas look. This can range from elegant glass, gold and silver ware to icy, with lots of white. There are ranges in the traditional red and gold and some lovely natural, Nordic look items all grouped together.
I’m all about the white bright and icy this year.
Do you theme up your Christmas?
I don’t think it is necessary to go for a theme or colour scheme though as I think Christmas really is a time when anything works as long as you love it!
Especially when it comes to baubles.
I never coordinate the baubles on the tree but I have some criteria. There has to be something special about the bauble. I have a lot that were my mums, fewer that belonged to my grand[parent bu they are all full of memories. I have ones we bought on special trips to Lapland UK and London at Christmas and I have a fair few the kids have made over the years too.
I also have a few baubles that I have bought to support charities. My latest acquisition is this gorgeous bauble from HomeSense.
HomeSense have an annual, lovely, Hang a Bauble campaign which sells paper baubles for £1 to hang on a tree in store. You can write your own message on these and this year proceeds go to The Prince’s Trust Achieve programme. I love to go and read the messages and add my bauble to the tree.
This year they are also selling the lovely Princes Trust baubles you can see above. The glass bauble costs £3.99, with a donation of £1.70 going to the charity. The programme helps vulnerable kids learn new skills and grow in confidence. You can read more about it here.
That’s a bauble I am proud to hang from my tree. ‘Tis the season of goodwill after all.
How do you choose your baubles?
