curator of lovely things: christmas in colour

I love a good Aussie Christmas! There is nothing better than gathering with family and friends over a chaotic smorgasbord of eclectic and delicious homemade dishes. A day that generally consists of going from the airconditioning to the pool then back again to finish off the festivities with a piece of pavlova and a nap.

In a toast to our summery southern-hemisphere Christmas I have gathered some colourful styling goodies that aren't covered in snowflakes and Santas - items that are fun and would look great all year round. Pops of red, green, yellow and turquoise can be dressed up with metallic pieces.

I have also included some cute DIY printable cards which you can download and print for free, (No8!) scroll down for the link!

Hope you enjoy, Kimmy
