I think it is fair to say, I am now completely engulfed with the Christmas spirit.
I've been busy baking gingerbread, endlessly listening to Slade, and watching all the feel-good Christmas films.
During the first lockdown, small businesses were so supportive making us all feel joyful by their special touches and amazing customer service. That's exactly why I'll be supporting our local suppliers this Christmas!
If you are anything like me, you are already planning your Christmas decorations for your home, so today I thought I would share with you some of my favourites from Sussex based suppliers!
1. Welcome family and friends with a Christmas Wreath
Christmas Wreaths are the perfect way to bring joy and celebrate the Christmas season.
I absolutely love hanging a Christmas wreath on my front door because it always looks so pretty and makes me smile every time I get home on a cold winters day.
This exquisite Woodland Wreath was created by Sussex Florals, it is decorated with gorgeous red roses, pine cones, and fragrant spruce.
2. Create a cosy atmosphere with Luxury Candles
Candles are a lovely way to decorate your home this Christmas because they signify celebration. They instantly change the ambience of a room, the soft flickering candlelight creates a relaxing atmosphere and adds a sense of warmth.

James, founder of The Little Candle Co has created innovative scents which smell absolutely divine.
I absolutely love their seasonal range which includes Christmas Spice, Warm Gingerbread and Winter Fireside!

6. Hang a beautiful Robin Home Wall Print
Another fantastic way to decorate your home this Christmas would be to have beautiful Christmas related Wall Art and this Robin photograph definitely makes us feel joyful and ready for Christmas!
