The new Christmas decorations of 2014

As previously mentioned, my family and I were lucky enough to go to California in October.  The shops were beautifully festooned with fall/autumnal decor in the run up to Thanksgiving.  Christmas decorations were being rolled in and I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase  some magical looking pieces.  The first of which were a couple of Potterybarn’s Silver Mercury Glass Christmas Trees.  I bought them in sizes mini and small.  I would have loved to have purchased it in large but I was rather nervous about the fragility of them.  I treated them like little newborn babies in my well padded (newly purchased) Whole Foods freezer bag!  There is a little cut out at the base so that you can insert fairy lights or a flameless battery operated tea/candle light.  I cannot wait to have them in situ (maybe on the sideboard and then the dining table on Christmas day) and will take a picture of them when they are in place but for now, do look them up on the Potterybarn website.  They will deliver to the UK.

There are a few mercury glass/silver Christmas trees out there (I am sure there will be more as the season progresses) but my favourite so far are the ones from Potterybarn.  Here are a few other options for sale this season.
