So this year at MNHQ, we have gorn all out with the festivities.

Emoticons are live - fgrin we have some AMAZING competitions that only run for 12 days, so keep coming back on Mumsnet and on our Facebook page, we have vouchers, a holiday, a TV and A CAR to give away fshock so do go and take a look at both (that's 24 chances to win!), we have a naughty Elf on the Shelf playing up at The Towers, look out for the pictures..

...and last week we had a beautiful tree delivered into the office from The Good Elf .

But here's the problem, it's bare! fsad

We would love for you to send in your homemade decorations so we can fill our lovely tree and we will be giving some prizes for the "best".

We made an angel for the top of our tree last week and we hope that she will inspire you and help you to see what level of "best" we are working on fgrin

The Rules
The decoration has to be homemade.
It can be made by you or the DC or any family member.
Extra points are given for use of glue and glittery shit.
The tackier, the better.


Please send them into:
The Community Team
Studio 6, Deane House Studios,
Greenwood Place,
Highgate Road,
London NW5 1LB

And add a note with your posting name so we can find you if you are a winner.

Good luck and do check back for pictures, we will also be adding images to our Pinterest page, Facebook , Twitter and here on the thread over the coming weeks.

Merry Christmas fsmile and thanks to the Woolly Huggers for the bunting fgrin

And for anyone who's wondering, the, um, festive disco emu was lovingly crafted by members of MN staff who may want to remain nameless

Oh dear. This little fellow came to us from The Elf Company, so we asked him to do a tea run, but it looks like he found our supplies for the Christmas party instead. Must hide it better next time...

Are you sure asking for 'glittery shit' is such a good idea with Poo Trolls around?


KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 02-Dec-13 12:56:24

For genuine glittery shit

HarkTEEHeraldAngelsSing Mon 02-Dec-13 13:03:28

fgrin Kate.

There is no way that's your supplies. Look at the bottle size. We all know that you only get your spirits delivered in gallon barrels.

I hope you get lots of lovely decorations fsmile.

Frankly, I can barely get my own shit together this year - let alone glittery shit to you in time for Christmas, not even with mega expensive help from Kate fgrin

Sorry! fsad

Do you mean 12 HOURS rather than days?!

numberoneidiot Mon 02-Dec-13 20:45:52

Oh ignore me, can't count the number of hours in a day <mutter, mutter>
