The Coco’s Tea Party Christmas Checklist

Christmas Checklist

Yes, I sound like a broken record once again… But, seriously, I just adore Christmas time! London is such a magical place during December (as cities go, only New York can trump it), and every time you turn a corner you’re greeted with fairy lights, Christmas trees and the smell of Starbucks gingerbread lattes.

I’ve been trying to cram as much festive fun into my calendar as possible. And whenever I’m passing through Covent Garden I make a little detour to the new Petersham Nurseries store. It’s beautiful whatever time of year you visit, but right now it looks like a winter wonderland. There are baubles in every corner, along with stunning tableware for Christmas Day, stylish gift wrap and decedent stocking fillers. A five minute browse around the store is all you need to recharge your Christmas spirit…

This Christmas is definitely going to feel a little different for me, however. As you may have seen on Instagram, I just got the keys to my first home. It’s been a really long process, and I won’t actually move in until the New Year. But I’m currently spending every waking moment sorting out council tax, getting boilers replaced and building flat-pack furniture. So there hasn’t been much time to think about Christmas and all of festive errands I need to take care of. (Note to self: December is not the most sensible time of year to move…)

As you know, I’m usually Little Miss Organised. And the thought of forgetting something essential, this Christmas, literally sends a wave of panic through my body. So I decided to create a Christmas checklist. Feel free to print this out, or use it as a starting point for your own December checklist…
