Decorating My Christmas Tree

Christmas, Other

December 21, 2017

Heya Guys!

Every year my family and I enjoy spending a festive day decorating our Christmas tree, and we take decorating pretty seriously. That being said this a really fun time for us, we wear Santa hats, put on our Christmas playlist and work on creating the most bedazzled tree you can find.

We usually get in a real tree and this year ours was 13 feet tall, which means a LOT of decorating to do. In our family, I’m in charge of ordering and choosing ornaments so when we open the box full of decorations I’m in my total design, creative mode. We’ve gathered lot’s of ornaments over the years, but last year when I started coming up with our ‘copper and blush’ theme we ordered a lot of them from Cox & Cox.  I think they have some really great ornaments, but if you’re looking for a place to buy tree decorations I’ve written about a few of my favourite places in my latest Christmas Preparation post, definitely have a look at them.

But enough about that here’s how our tree turned out this year!!!

I prefer to use warm coloured lights because I think it adds a more cozy vibe to our tree.

This ornament is made from folded paper, how cool is that?

These are some of my favourite ones, they’re a sort of textured grey colour with bits of copper peeking through.

These mirrored diamond ones create a nice effect as they reflect everything around them.

This ornament has such a natural look, which makes it blend in so well with the tree.

We collected this one from the Coca-Cola store in Orlando, isn’t the bear cute?

  1. […] When the first week of December rolls around, my favourite thing to do is start decorating. There’s something about fairy lights and glittery baubles that just make you feel happy, right? I love planning out and decorating our tree, filling the house with small festive knick-knacks, and lighting a Christmas candle! (you can see my Christmas tree from last year in this post) […]
