O' Christmas Tree, O' Christmas Tree

Happy December!

In all honesty, I was going to write my October/November favourites post this week. I had it (kind of) prepared, all I needed to do was take some photos. But then I thought No, I'm rambling about something that even I'm not interested in talking about again, and so this post was born. One of my very first posts on this blog was all about Christmas trees and how we decorated the house, which is what I thought I'd do again this year. Just keeping tradition alive!

On Thursday night, I came home from helping out at a Christmas fair, to find my mum and brother putting the tree together. We'd said earlier on in the week that it'd be Sunday, then Saturday, and then Friday when we put the tree up. Having said that, Mum suddenly brought the day forward to Thursday, which I was obviously over the moon about. So I joined in and we got cracking, putting the  lights and decks onto the tree. Mum decided that the scheme would be very trendy and kind of Scandinavian-inspired. This was very easy because there were so many decorations out there. By the way, if you're looking for great Christmas decks, I'd highly recommend Asda and Wilko.

Over the past couple of days, we've gradually been adding more and more garlands and fairy lights to different areas of the house, outside and inside. Let's just say that a lot of work has gone into our house this year, which makes it look extra Christmassy. I feel like most people have been feeling very festive much earlier on than last year, is it just me?

Of course, my tree was up right at the end of November, but only because I wouldn't really have any time this week. I went with a theme of simple, round baubles to make my pretty narrow tree look a bit fuller. All of the baubles are either gold, silver or copper. And, of course, my room wouldn't be complete without some fairy lights! I've got some warm globe lights, from WHSmith's, strung over my headboard. They look cute and festive without being over the top. I think so, anyway!

The thing is, we're taking our decorations down slightly earlier this ear, because we're spending New Year in Germany, so we don't want to come back in January to everything still up. Because of this, we thought that we might as well have them up earlier to make up for it.

Christmas is, by far, the best and most enjoyable time of year for me, as I've probably mentioned before. It can be quite stressful at times, especially when untangling multiple strings of lights and buying gifts, but the overall finish is so worth it.

Let me know what kind of Christmassy posts you want to see from me this month, because I'd really like to hear your thoughts.

Happy Christmas!
