This weekend I've really begun to start December's festivities. I've put up the tree (note to self for when I have my own home: get a real tree that you don't have to put together) and decorated it. This year rather than letting the decorations be quite random I've kept to a red and gold theme with some fairy lights. I spent all Saturday morning blasting the Christmas music and dancing around my lounge decorating it to bring the Christmas spirit alive.
I also spent some time sorting out the presents that I already have/need to get for people when I had the idea of doing some Christmas baking as part of my gifts. I bought these cookie cutters from Stevens for half price ($10) and I'm planning to make a mixture of biscuits, one being a classic- gingerbread. (Recipe taken from Taste magazine)
Throughout the month I'm planning to do as many festive things as possible and really get myself into the Christmas spirit this year, so expect a lot of 'blogmas' posts.
I hope you are all enjoying this December!
