I found a big bag up our loft when we got our decs down this year! They’re gold and cream and actually quite nice! I promise I wasn’t tempted to put them up

Really? I’d love to see a house all done up in them! These must have been the old lady’s that lived here before us. My nan still did hers until maybe 2 years ago, my late grandad couldn’t get up to put them up in his last few years god bless him. Otherwise I’m sure she still would put them up even though we used to tell her they were atrocious lol x

I usually just stand them up wherever I can fit them. It's a bit annoying though, because they're usually in the way and keep falling down, so might try putting up a string this year.

Usually on the blanket box in the living room and the kids like to put theirs on the windowsill in their bedroom.
