Oh Baby its Cold Outside

Following last week’s post, I wanted to share the festive living area and the famous fireplace I had mentioned. ūüėČ

For the living area, I thought it would be fun to create something above the fireplace as it is the main element of the room. I used two battery-operated fairy light garlands¬†and taped them to the wall in the shape of a heart. I also added a garland¬†just above the fireplace and hung snowflakes from it to stick with the wintery theme I know you can’t see them very clearly from the pictures so you’re going to have to trust me on this one. I found some similar snowflakes¬†online if you are interested. I usually hang them on windows using¬†these.

I added a few candles above the fireplace as well (in case you didn’t notice, I am a big fan of candles…!).


To finish off my decor, I added MORE candles (see below)! I find this such a cute way of displaying tea light candles. If you have anything similar to this built in shelf in your home, you should ¬†try it (but make sure the candle isn’t too close to the top shelf or this might end in a disaster…).

After¬†dinner, we hung out by the fireplace, drank¬†some bubbles, had a little midnight snack and played boardgames. I know boardgames seem very old fashioned ,but for me, it is the definition of¬†a good night in. We get so competitive (in a friendly way), we always laugh hysterically and overall just have so much fun. Its also a good ice breaker when you are not very at ease with the others¬†around as you really get to bond over it. My favourite game these days is this one. Seriously, if you’re looking for a present for someone, you really should get it (and buy it for yourself while you’re at it!).

What is your favourite board game? Any recommendations?

I hope you have a great week my loves!

P.S. I made a Youtube video of how I decorated this home for Valentine’s Day. Go go go check it out and give me some feedback!

  1. My recommendation would have been Rummykub but you beat me to it ? Such a fun game ? PS love the “Christmas lights”, especially that you made it into a heart… So adorable.
