For those readers who are new to Glamour Drops this year,
and to my older friends who have been reading for a while,
just in case you haven't sorted out your Christmas decorating,
and are in need of some serious inspiration,
I thought it may be quite wonderful to look back at these 12 decorating themes
prepared last year.
Each was inspired by the old 12 Days of Christmas ditty,
and I had a lot of fun compiling them.
They have suggestions for decorating the tree, wrapping presents,
and setting a glamorous table,
each in a very fun manner.
1st Day : Partridge in a Pear Tree
2nd Day : 2 Turtle Doves
3rd Day : 3 French Hens
4th Day : 4 Colly Birds
5th Day : 5 Gold Rings
6th Day : 6 Geese a Laying
7th Day : 7 Swans a Swimming
8th Day : 8 Maids a Milking
9th Day : 9 Ladies Dancing
10th Day : 10 Lords a Leaping
11th Day : 11 Pipers Piping
12th Day : 12 Drummers Drumming
As for my own theme this year, I am busily putting the final touches on our tree,
much later than I usually do,
but having a lot of merriment in the process.
It's a tree roughly along the lines of the 12th Day inspiration,
so there's just a little more fairytale magic to go...
