We were really lucky recently to receive a box full of cute collage items for making Xmas decorations from a dear friend. In it were a few boxes of plain Xmas balls, lots of glue and glitter and a pile of brightly coloured napkins. A couple of years ago we had decoupaged plain coasters with Xmas serviettes and they were pretty cute, plus have lasted really well, so we thought we would have a go doing it with these balls. The kids had a fab time in the process!
In our house, we just LOVE Christmas. I’m all about establishing traditions with my daughters and we have devised all these wacky, wonderful food creations which seem to begin earlier and earlier every year. My daughters all inherited a love of anything peppermint from my amazing Mum, and this peppermint candy cane-flavoured (as if they should be any other flavour! But apparently some people love tropical flavoured ones…yuk!) ice-cream with chocolate shards is pretty much the best thing about the start of the Christmas season.
