It will be a relaxed Christmas in my household this year.
We usually celebrate with a family lunch, this year however we are opting to do an early dinner instead. We figure this way it gives us the day to enjoy the beach, sunny weather and relax - instead of being in the kitchen all morning prepping food, followed by a whole afternoon of eating!
Dinner will start around 4pm, we are all bringing a plate of cold food to share. It will be a combination of salads, cold ham and chicken and an array of desserts. My mother in laws pavlova is the one I am looking forward to. You can't beat a good pav can you?!
We set up the Christmas tree late November, even putting up some outdoor solar lights and decorating the house exterior. It is looking very festive! I opted this year for a non traditional Christmas tree - instead using my handmade driftwood tree once more, adorned with shells, twine and handmade clay tags.
Yesterday presents were wrapped and placed under the tree, its finally starting to feel alot like Christmas now!
Hubby joked to me that this Christmas corner is like a shrine of my handmade creations. I cannot help it if I love being creative!!
There is the handmade Christmas tree, the drfitwood mirror, hamptons whitewash side table and now as of last week the feather wreath that proudly hangs on the front door. I had to agree, I love handmade and being creative though!

Enjoy the festivities,
