Tomorrow is Halloween and then it will be bonfire night that means christmas is next up on the calendar!
We have a very busy December so I like to plan a head and I always start by filling in a diary of big days in December We have 2 birthdays, a wedding anniversary and Christmas day
Then I put down all the events we have planned
This year we have J & M’s birthday party, a christmas party we are hosting , a trip on a santa train, village lights switch on, xmas eve meal,
When all events are in I’m ready for writing up a gift list!
Writing down everyone we buy gifts for.
Next up are any menu plans for dinners or parties we are hosting.
We have our main Christmas dinner on christmas eve so I write-up a rough plan of what I’m cooking.
When food is taken care of I will go to pinterest and magazines and look for table decor ideas.
Also When I’m planning Christmas I write-up a plan of any household jobs that need doing before the big day.
At the moment one job is to finish off the downstairs shower room. So paint and flooring are ordered and finishing it is on my agenda!
I also like to have a rough plan for Elf On The Shelf
This year I want to do something a bit different with Elf On The Shelf. More on this in a separate post!
That’s about it!
So let’s get planning!
