Christmas Countdown: Baubles

Today marks the 1 month to Christmas and maybe it is time to start thinking about decorating the house. Let's start from the Baubles. It is nice to buy at least one new bauble a year in order to have a Christmas tree like in the old days with mismatched decorations  where visitors would spend a certain amount of time viewing them all.
These Toadstools decoration have got a vintage feel and the pack of 4 available at Tesco can be the start for a Christmas tree different from the ones that now are all  with matching baubles and colours. I remember these decorations on my grandma's tree and I'm sure  that they are still in some boxes at my parents' cellar.
At the Wyevale Garden Centres  there is a vast selection of replica trees, real trees and decoration for the house and the garden. Among all this huge choice I've picked this Purple Sequin filled Bauble, that with the lights on the tree it will shine with beautiful purply shadows.
At Liberty's head to the Christmas department and you will find a corner where you can order transparent glass baubles ready to be personalised  with initials using a Liberty patterned letter. Decorate your tree with your family initials and give a bauble as a gift  to be cherished.
At Paperchase there is a great selection of Christmas decorations and this Gold Glitter Diamond one is a novelty that will give a sparkly look to any tree. A set of diamond shaped glass baubles are also available.
Sparkly and glittered Jingle Bells in yellow and rose gold and silver can be bought at HomeSense. A box of these sweet decorations will give points of light on those dark little corners of the Christmas tree. Or make yours this idea and put them in a festive bowl for a nice centrepiece.
Go to Sainsbury's for its extensive Christmas decorations selection. This rich purple bauble with the motto " Meet me under the Mistletoe" from the Midnight collection is another of those baubles that should be on a Christmas tree. 
I love going to museums' shops because you always find something which is not in other shops. Heading to the National Gallery shop this opulent Red Shiny Sultan Bauble is a homage to the Caravaggio exhibition now on show. The top is decorated with crystals and beading and it is a great piece for your tree. Buying anything from the National Gallery will help keep the museum entrance free for all.

This Mercury Droplet Bauble is in glass with flower detail and silver, glitter and mercury finish to make it shiny. Matalan has got this and many more to choose from in order to decorate your Christmas tree at its best.
