Festive Flora

Now I don't know about you, but I am feeling pretty festive now. It has taken a while but I've got there eventually guys! The tree is up, the Yankee candles are burning away and I am in my element, any sort of fairy light makes me a little giddy...not going to lie.

I've been rather ill the past few days and have only just started to feel back to normal, so when I heard a knock at the door earlier...I really didn't want to get out of bed. Alas I pulled myself from under my duvet and opened the door to a beautiful Christmas bouquet from Debenhams. I love their flowers as you can see from other posts on my blog, they never disappoint. This stunning selection is called Ruby, filled with roses, oriental lilies and smells out of this world! 

Honestly, I can't wait to have a lovely house and set up a beautiful Christmas table. I'd have a huge tree and make pots of festive scents to pop on the stove. Candles everywhere and a huge open fire with a big, hug me blanket. My life dream that, along with a dog called Wemby...Harry Potter reference there. If you're stuck for a present for your Mother-In-law, Gran or someone celebrates a Birthday in December; I think these flowers are a perfect gift. I'm tempted to order a bunch to take with me to Dey's parents house for Christmas dinner, my Mother-In-Law adores flowers! It's a nice thank you for cooking us all dinner.
