Last week we put up the Christmas tree, one of the things I love the most about Christmas! We always get a real one, and I always get super excited to go out and pick a tree. This year was unbelievable, we picked a tree in under 5 minutes… insane right?! Usually, we take a lot longer, me and my mom are very picky when it comes to Christmas trees. This year though, we found the perfect one straight away.
Something I also really love is decorating the tree. I leave the carrying, the getting it inside and putting the lights in up to my dad, and then I get cracking. I always wear a Christmas jumper and I put Christmas music on. I mean, how much more festive can it be right?! At the end of the day I’m sat down with irritated and very itchy hands, but when I loop up at the tree it’s all worth it!
As I’m writing this post I’m enjoying the tree even more, since it is currently snowing! Also, I’ve got Christmas music on in the background. Speaking of a perfect day! Anyways, our tree is very simple I would say. It’s a combination of blue and silver baubles and a wooden star on top. We stopped using tinsel a couple of years ago, and I think it actually looks way better without.
The only bauble that doesn’t really go with the theme, and that is a little bit tacky, is this one. It is the bauble my parents got me the year I was born. I don’t care that it doesn’t really fit in, it has to be on the tree for sentimental reasons.
Another favourite of mine are these silver pinecone ornaments with a tiny bit of fake snow. I just think these are so cute!
In my room I also have a little Christmas tree. It’s a fake one, but I actually really like it. I’m not one for fake trees, but I’m not going to put a real one up there. This one has fake snow on it, and it doesn’t look super super fake if you know what I mean. I love it so so much! On this tree, I have used the same blue baubles and besides them some wooden ornaments, some metal stars and some clear baubles with twigs and snow inside. I absolutely love this tree! It also shows how much I love stars, because I got quite a lot of stars in this one.
