Christmas is my favourite time of year! I love everything about it, the food, the decorations, spending time with family and of course the tree! Every year I put some Christmas songs on and spend the afternoon decorating the tree, which of course in my house has to be real!
My favourite memories from growing up are decorating the Christmas tree with my brother and mum, pulling out all the decorations from over the years. One thing I found difficult in my first year of having a Christmas tree was the expense of it to look ‘perfect’ in the first year. So my biggest piece of advice when decorating your tree is to build it up over the years, every year I get a few more and add or swap some of the cheaper ones for something more thoughtful. This year its the Christmas tree topper that has been my focus, the last couple of years I just added a bow, which I never really liked but now I have a gorgeous metal star on its way and I cant wait to see its pride of place!
Felt/wool decorations – For me, Christmas is all about handcrafted decorations and this cute range of handmade tree decorations really add the perfect finishing touch. Over the last few years, Christmas decorations have been stepping up their game and heading towards really adding a more personal touch to your tree. I love the classic touch this range of decorations gives whilst adding in a quirky edge with designs such as the avocado!
Traditional Decorations – Personally I am a very traditional girl when it comes to Christmas! I love the traditional colours of gold, red and green and one of my favourite parts of decorating for Christmas are rediscovering the memories. My mum had the same decorations so it was always fun when me and my brother to go through and to reminisce. So when I first started decorating my own place it was so exciting to start on the same path of finding decorations that will last a lifetime! Every year I add to the collection with a few more and we have even bought some on major holidays to remind us of our time.
Tinsel: Tinsel is not really a focus of mine when decorating for Christmas. I usually go for more of the traditional route of bead garlands to add a little extra decoration. These are a really cute and natural way to add some texture and colour to your tree or fireplace whilst keeping it classy.
Christmas tree topper: The Christmas Tree topper really is the star of the show, whether you go down the traditional route or something a bit more contemporary it’s worth investing time and money in. One thing I found difficult in my first year or having a Christmas tree was the expense of it to look ‘perfect’ in the first year. So after three years I have finally found the prefect topper and I am obsessed.
General Decoration: The general decoration is nearly as fun to decorate as the tree itself. With cute garlands and beautifully scented candles dotted around, they help create the magical cosy atmosphere throughout. Throughout the years I have added more little decorations such as wooden trains and scandi inspired candle huts.
