Happy weekend everybody! It’s a been a busy week prepping for Christmas posts and I’m super excited to share my favourite post to date on Monday. I’ve set my self the challenge this year to decorate without any of the traditional reds, golds and greens and create an alternative Christmas table using pastel colours, which are my favourite at the moment. I was sent lots of lovely goodies from Occa-Home for the table so it’s extra special and I even made some octahedrons to decorate with – you will have to join me on Monday to find out what that’s all about!

For this weekend’s inspiration, I’ve included a couple of posts based on using non-traditoinal colours and materials to decorate with this Christmas, as well as some great DIY home ideas…
