My husband, and I have a fairly minimalistic home, and love Scandinavian design so Christmas is an interesting time for seasonal decorations. Our Christmas decorations are minimalistic, and consistent with our home colour theme.
I hate tacky Christmas decorations, and the concept of elf on a shelf creeps me out. I bought the $3 mixed pink bauble set from Big W, and superglued them into a wreath for our dining table.
Simple, affordable, and festive!
