Christmas bucket list

I realised I never shared my Autumn bucket list on here a few days ago, I had it all written down and we did quite a few of them without even referring back to them so I thought I would share our Christmas bucket list instead!

We are definitely a Christmas mad household. I do go a bit fairy light heavy and I am super traditional in my colour schemes. I don’t do any pink/blue/purple decs I only do gold, silver, red, green and of cooourse copper! Last year I did a complete copper and silver tree and it did look pretty bladdy wonderful. I cannot hide the fact I am so so excited to get all the decs out and find all the things I forgot I had and start tarting up the house!

So without further a do…

  1. Bake and decorate Christmas biscuits
  2. Put on our Christmas jumpers and take a million pictures with the polaroid camera and make silly christmas bunting from them
  3. Watch Elf. This needs no justification and should be on everyone’s bucket list as standard!!
  4. Make our advent treasure hunt from the 1st December
  5. Make at least 5 gifts to give to friends and family
  6. Go to a Christmas market
  7. Go to a Christmas fayre
  8. Go late night Christmas shopping in our local town
  9. Take the kids ice skating
  10. Visit Father Christmas in a grotto
  11. Make mulled wine. (and drink it. all.)
  12. Spend one evening wrapping presents listening to Christmas music. Drinking mulled wine. A lot of mulled wine.
  13. Go for a drive and see all the Christmas lights
  14. Wear red lipstick as much as humanly possible through December
  15. Make our own Christmas cards for close friends and family
  16. Make delicious dairy free hot chocolate
  17. Make up a shoe box to give to a local childrens charity
  18. Write a letter to Father Christmas
  19. Make a paper snowflake garland
  20. Make a gingerbread house

I’m fully aware this is a pretty unrealistic bucket list for the next 6 weeks, especially with work being so busy this time of year, but a girl can dream! And of course no blog post of mine can be without photos so here are some of last years Christmas snaps!


If you are local I am also running a couple of days of Christmas Mini photoshoots in my studio, head on over to my facebook page for all the info!
