The Perfect Christmas



I'm dreaming of a white Christmas is a classic Christmas song, but what are you dreaming of this Christmas time? There's a lot of things that make the day perfect and after looking around on Pinterest I decided to show you my top musts for my perfect Christmas day.

The tree.

There are so many types of Christmas trees, real and fake, it's hard to pick a favorite but I do love a classic green fake tree. Real trees are lovely but I'd always opt for a fake as they're a lot easier to care for and decorate. When I decorate a Christmas tree I have to have the colours classy and co-ordinate with the surroundings, I love the look of silver and white decorations as they are classic and very Christmasy. You also can't forget to cover the tree in fairy lights, a tree is pointless without them!

Decorations.

Christmas decorations are important to get right. I personally love anything that's pretty and anything with lights. On Christmas day there should be candles burning and lights glowing!

Food.
Gingerbread!Christmas cookies.Now that is a good turkey
It's safe to say food is very important around Christmas, it's the perfect excuse for gaining a few pounds. I love classic Christmas food like gingerbread men and not forgetting turkey for the main roast. Pinterest has a lot of festive food ideas that I've never seen before, like Santa hats made out of strawberries and cream!

Gift wrap.

If you've seen my recent post regarding gift wrap, you'll know I adore classic simple wrapping with brown kraft paper, ribbons and simple bows. I'd love to be able to wrap all my presents differently with them looking great.


Clothes.
White and gold Christmas jumper!!!!Christmas is the perfect excuse to buy a festive patterned jumper and wear it 24/7 without anyone batting an eyelid. Sounds good to me.Ruffled Camp Socks - anthropologie.com
Let's be honest, you have to own a Christmas jumper. On Christmas day I'd love to just wear a baggy Christmas jumper, some leggings and some funky Christmas socks!

Everything else.
