THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS

holidaydiy-110

One more day to go until Christmas! On this day I like to prepare the Christmas table and go into our garden to find natural Christmas table decorations. These are beautiful, inexpensive and environmental friendly! I use ilex and branches from the bay leaf tree to create a centerpiece (just place the branches casually on the middle of the table and voila, you have a ‘center piece’) and I stick rosemary twigs with some natural rope on linen napkins. If you want more Christmas inspiration to get in the festive mood: I recently contributed to a post about Christmas decorations on and this post is full of Christmas inspiration. You can find the post . Have a wonderful Christmas!

TINY PAPER HOUSES BY JURIANNE MATTER

How cute are ?! is a village of 12 highly diverse houses: traditional, urban, rural, cosy and old but also contemporary and modern. They are genuinely prefab: pre-punched, pre-creased and with windows that have already been broken out. Even the interior walls have been provided with wallpaper in a trendy black & white print. The only thing that you, as a contractor, need to do is to glue the walls and roofs together where indicated. Finishing the houses is great fun, and once they are completed you can start shifting them around. Will your houses form a convivial village square on your table, or a ramrod-straight street on your window sill or against your wall? Will you string them into a festive garland, or give one away as a house-warming gift? With (24 houses in total) you can also create the most amazing Advent calendar ever! Number them with the house numbers provided and put a small gift or message in each house, to be opened on each day of Advent.
