    Great ideas, I’m more old school and prefer traditional Christmas colours of red and white but great ideas. Exciting Christmas for you this year, baby Aidan’s first Christmas :)

    All things nice…

    I love this post – the only thing is that it’s proving nearly impossible to find the original links (which is kind of the curse of Pinterest). Any chance you would update with the direct links? Especially the sites that aren’t in English are impossible to search!

      @Emily – For which one – they all point to their source.

    This is perfect timing for me, thanks! I’m decorating our home on Friday and was just trying to come up with some different ideas for this year. I really love the washi tape snowflakes and the giant balloon ornaments! Both look easy, but make a statement!

    love that gugelhopf cake, might have a go at something similar. What i find difficult here in Germany is finding nice cake decorations. Any tips?
