Decorating Lil G’s bedroom for Christmas

great little trading christmas decorations

As its December I think it is only right to share a little festive decorations post with you. For the first time we have decorated Lil G’s bedroom, in actual fact we hadn’t planned to but on his request for a tree and colourful lights we may have got a little carried away. Can you ever get too carried away?

I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than decorating our home for Christmas. The main focus for our little family has always been the rooms downstairs however this year it really has felt lovely to be adding a little sprinkling of festive fun to Lil G’s bedroom. I adore how the lights on the tree offer a gorgeous warm glow at bedtime, oh to be five years old and falling asleep to twinkling lights.

Lil G helped me to pick out some decorations and I have to say the boy chose well. I’m a huge fan of wooden toys and so when I saw these festive Russian dolls I simply couldn’t resist. And look at that advent, we have added chocolates to this advent as our main one is a crafty collection of bits and bobs, it wouldn’t be Christmas without chocolate before breakfast now would it! And look it has a little countdown behind each window. Oh the magic.

For as long as I can remember we have always hung a stocking in Lil G’s bedroom, and if he’s lucky the big fella fills it with lots of treats on Christmas Eve ready for when he wakes all bleary eyed on the big day. I remember lying in bed last Christmas morning listening to him unwrapping a few treats from his sack, the gentle ooh’s and aah’s made for a magical start to the morning. Great Little Trading Co have some beautiful personalised stockings – I am thinking about using it as an alternative to a Christmas Eve box this year. What do you think? It certainly is big enough and with being personalised it looks perfect.

    What lovely decorations, I’d never even thought of decorating the children’s rooms, I might have to embark on that mission next year.

    My daughter loves decorating her bedroom for Christmas. She can decorate how she likes in there and ‘colour co-ordinate’ the way that she likes!
