Lucie Loves... Home // The prettiest boho Christmas decorations from Anthropologie
Starting your own collection of festive trinkets is rather exciting! You spend years growing up admiring the decorations hanging on your family’s tree. But it’s only when you finally move into your own place, a couple of decades later, that you begin to put your own stamp on Christmas. It’s a right of passage, getting into the festive spirit.
I’m a romantic: I see fairy lights and I smile - no matter what time of year it is. I see Christmas trees and I immediately get taken back 15-years to when I worked at a local garden centre in Warrington. I spent many a Christmas season setting up trees in store, pricing decorations, The Pretender’s 2,000 miles a constant ear worm - I could not get it out of my head! And then going home covered in glitter from handling hundreds of fancy frosted niceties.
I was ecstatic when they got in touch this year and asked whether I would like to review a few of their new 2014 range. It was music to my ears!
I love Anthropologie. They sum themselves up rather nicely too: “A one-of-a-kind destination for those seeking a curated mix of clothing, accessories, gifts and home décor to reflect their personal style and fuel their lives’ passion.”
You can pick of choose pieces to create decadent interiors, host fabulous dinner parties or even dress a Christmas tree. I can often be found swooning over cushions, bed linen, scented candles and pretty crockery. I’m an Anthro-geek!
We haven’t been out to get our tree yet, so for now I’m hanging the latest additions to our christmas crown jewels onto the edges of picture frames to decorate our fireplace. All that’s missing is the roaring fire! I’ve added a couple of pics from last Christmas so that you can get a feel for my eclectic taste in decorations and ogle our very fancy tree!
Decorations featured in the photos above:
- Felted ‘L’ monogram ornament
- Pink agate slice ornament
- Creative Growth collaboration sparked sequin ornament by artist Monica Valentine
- Ceramic gold tipped feather
- Assorted decorations in bowl and on tree (2013 stock and old families ornaments)
I hope all your Christmas shopping and holiday preparations are going well! I’ve still got so much to do!!
