Not to alarm anyone too much but have you realised that there are only FIVE weeks to go until Christmas Day descends upon us yet again?!

The Christmas ‘to do’ list is always a long one what with numerous presents to buy and a big dinner to plan. The best part however has got to be transforming your home into a magical wonderland, ready to celebrate the festive season in style.

Whether you stick with the tradition of putting up the same decorations or choose a different theme each year, there’s always room to add one or two new decorations into the mix.  Plus if you shop ethically, you’ll also be helping to give back to charities and to many artisans from developing countries across the world who make a living from hand-making beautiful Christmas decorations just like these…
