Kate Middleton's mom, Carole, is undeniably a fun grandmother. From getting the kids involved in the garden to introducing Prince George to outdoorsman Bear Grylls (who encouraged him to eat his first ant), she's always coming up with exciting and interactive ways to engage with her royal grandchildren. And considering that she's also well known for her party supply company Party Pieces, it's only natural that her holiday decor would not only be festively chic, but also fun for the kids.
This week, Carole revealed through the Party Pieces Instagram account that she'll be adding a few new faces to her decor collection this year. “I’m going to need a few of these cheeky chaps this December, to hide around the house and make my grandchildren laugh,” she shared alongside a photo of two tomte—whimsical gnomes. She added, “As much as I love immaculate decorations, we can’t be too serious at Christmas!”

Said to bring good fortune to those who show them respect, the mischievous tomte often appear in Scandinavian holiday traditions (think: a classical version of the Elf on the Shelf). They're just the latest addition to Carole's extensive collection of Christmas decorations to make her grandchildren smile—in 2018, she revealed that she also places individual Christmas trees in each of the kids's rooms at her house “so that they can decorate it themselves.”
Of course, those aren't the only family Christmas decorations that George, Charlotte, and Louis will get to enjoy—just last week Windsor Castle debuted its own festive decor to the public as well.
