Christmas Decorations & Presents On A Budget!

My usual approach to decorating the tree is to chuck everything on and hope for the best. Every set of lights, every bauble and every bit of tinsel we own goes onto the tree, but not this year.

I have decided to go with a colour scheme, yes that’s right, a COLOUR SCHEME!

I’ve taken inspiration from a lovely lady who I follow on Instagram. Her name is Becky (or Mrs Christmas as I like to call her) and her account is Becky Home Sweet Home.

Her home is beautifully decorated with affordable Christmas crafts and her trees  are stunning.

So of course I’ve had to go shopping and buy a ‘few’ new bits for the tree!

I have bought decorations from Poudland, Poundworld, Hone Bargains and B&M Bargains. 

Everything I bought was really inexpensive ranging from 80p to £3.99.

I’ve created a Christmas playlist that contains all of my decoration and present haul videos!

Can you help make a difference this Christmas?

Becky is also raising money for her local children’s hospice and hospital as well as working with a wonderful charity called FIND. The charity do amazing work to help families that have nothing. By nothing I mean nothing. Becky is asking for a donation of £1 or whatever you can spare. Can you help make a difference this Christmas to some very poorly children and poverty stricken families. 

If you would like to donate you can do so here. You can also follow Becky’s Instagram stories to see how the donations are being spent and what she is buying for the children.

    That’s such a great idea to give to families who have nothing. We have decided to go for a rose gold theme this year, normally it’s a chuck on approach too but we’re going to have a children’s tree and an adult one! #pbe
