The Twelve Weeks of Christmas - Week Two - First Christmas Decorations

As I mentioned in my previous Christmas traditions post, we like to add a new bauble to the tree each year since we were married. As is our annual tradition we went off to London a couple of weeks back while Phoebe was at nursery (the quickest trip to London ever!) to pay a visit to the Liberty Christmas shop.

I was really disappointed this year, everything was the same as last year and nothing really stood out and shouted "buy me!" I've been after a really nice "baby's first Christmas" decoration. It frustrates me that, as beautiful as some of them are, they're all either blue or pink, neither of which will go with our tree.

We also talked about making the tree a bit more child friendly this year and just using wooden or felt decorations so when the inevitable happens Phoebe won't hurt herself or break anything. With that in mind it has made it more difficult to find something...until I came across the World of Weerts facebook page.

I've been after a couple of their decorations for ages, I'd seen a few on Instagram and loved them. So when Michelle announced she was having a christmas market night on facebook I was poised and ready to be quick! Her decorations sell like hotcakes and it's easy to see why. I've been really lucky to purchase a few ready for the tree this year. 

This is the one I've chosen for Phoebe's first Christmas...

How cute is he? I love him and especially how Michelle has personalised him on the back. I'm hoping this will be the start of many lovely decorations for Phoebe to collect for her tree when she grows up.

I might have purchased a snowman family for us all too...
I love that she includes snowpets too! They are part of the family too after all. I also managed to grab an order slot with Michelle before she closed them for her maket nights and ordered these two along with a few that I can't post as they're gifts for friends...hopefully they'll love them as much as we love ours!

Think I've got the first Christmas well and truly covered with those don't you?!
86 days to go! K x
