Christmas decorations

We live in a pretty small apartment, which means that pretty much every corner and surface is being used. That leaves very little room for christmas decorations, but we managed to find just a little bit of space for just a couple of things.


My boyfriend is the creator of this lovely advent candle arrangement. I’d made another one originally on a much smaller tray and while my boyfriend was out buying me flowers (!) he found this much bigger tray and arranged it all on this. I love it! It has been moved to the windowsill now because we are going to need the table for all of the exams we have to write this month..

IMG_3616I’ve had this christmas tree for as long as I can remember – it was a gift from my grandmother ages ago and I think I’ve had it up every year since. It’s nice to still have a kind of tree even though there isn’t room for a big one. The ornaments is a new addition from this year, though. Oh, and the lights change color.

IMG_3613I was out shopping for christmas decorations with my mother when I spotted this little guy, and I just had to have him! How cute is he?


I don’t know if you can call our pile of christmas presents a decoration, but it sure gives the room a christmas-y vibe.

    I have a little teeny tiny tree in my apartment too and it sits on a table below my TV and my boyfriend was laughing saying that my gift from him won’t fit under it. Maybe a bottle of polish would fit, but, that’s about it, LOL πŸ™‚ I love your tree and that snowman is entirely too cute too!!!

      Haha, I doubt any of my presents would fit under mine πŸ™‚ but you must be getting excited to see what he got you, then? I know I couldn’t (and can’t) wait if I was told I’d be getting a big present since most of my wishes are for small present πŸ™‚

    Glad to see that you are already all get, set and go for christmas. Hats off to your organisation skill and to be honest, I would be tempted to open up the presents if I see a pile of gifts lying in front of me. Don’t you? By the way, great pictures.

      Yes, luckily none of the presents for me is in that pile – they’re stuffed safely away under the bed so I won’t be tempted by them all the time πŸ˜€ I found a lot of great deals on black friday plus I like to split the expenses into two months since I’m on a student budget – I haven’t always been this organised πŸ˜‰
