Advent Window number 9 : Christmas Tree oh Christmas TREE! A real Tree for Christmas


Advent window 9

We bought our first real Christmas tree as a family of four today.
I was brought up with real Christmas trees I never really knew pretend ones existed? Why would I of? 
The christmas tree is the main part of decorating (I think) Forget all the fancy lights on your house. The tree is where the family gathers on Christmas day & generally stays around it for the following few days. 

Heres' a few points to putting up the perfect tree:

Putting up the perfect Christmas tree

  • Work your room’s colour scheme into your tree decorations alongside another complementary colour
  • Lights come in a variety of shapes, colours and themes but clear work best as they don’t detract from ornate decorations.. We still chose coloured (Emilyn's choice)
  • Make sure your lights’ wire matches the colour of your tree
  • Always put your lights on the tree first and switch them on as you dress your tree, working from the bottom to the top.
  • Baubles are a classic and can look really effective when different sizes are scattered around the tree
  • Making your own decorations is fun and inexpensive not to mention a great way for the kids to get involved
  • Shaped iced biscuits with threaded string look cute, as do homemade ribbons on the end of branches scattered through the tree
  • Get the children involved! Emilyn & Hugo LOVE decorating the Christmas tree & so what if every decoration is on each branch???

This is our Christmas tree
