OUR TREE IS UP !!

We’ve been so looking forward to getting our Christmas tree as we’ve had a real one again this year. I can honestly say having a real one does make the home feel more Christmassy, plus it smells amazing!.


This is the first year Nila is old enough to know what Christmas is and all she has been saying over the last few days is ‘tree’, so she was so happy when we finally got it delivered.



We got it in its stand and gave it some water then tackled the dreaded lights! - I am sure I detangled them  last year ready for this Christmas! :)

Anyway it took forever and Kadiann and I kept taking turns as it was getting to the point of giving up . Anyone else feel like that with lights..



The girls decorated it - we have stuck with the traditional red, gold and green and it looks beautiful. Nila kept saying ‘perpect’ that’s how she says perfect at the minute and it was so cute!!!

Now to sit down with a tea as I can definitely say that has worn me out ! But so worth it :)

  1. I love putting the tree up each year - it really helps make things feel extra christmassy. What a gorgeous tree you have and it looks like your girls had lots of fun decorating it.

  2. I also prefer real trees, although I can never justify having one as essentially you're killing a tree.. unless you plan to plant in your garden after

  3. I love your tree! It looks so warm and festive - particularly those red decorations! The lights are my least favourite part to do - I always end up taking them off and redoing them!

  4. Ahhh the tree does look amazing - I don't like real ones - way too much mess and I am never sure about the eco - though plastic ones are much the same...dilemma - :)

  5. I'm so obsessive about wrapping my lights up properly every year that they never get tangled. I'm a crazy lady haha!

    Real Christmas trees are so lovely, I couldn't imagine going back to a fake tree now.

  7. Having a real Christmas tree is always a lovely thing to do. So so exciting to be able to prepare for Christmas and enjoy it together. Having little ones just adds to the fun. The tree looks fabulous too.

  9. This is beautiful, I love the smell of a real tree. I've only just moved in so we got a cheap fake one this year but I might be tempted in 2020.

  10. I'm really jealous of your real Christmas tree, as I got our old artificial tree out of the box this year I really wanted to dump it and opt for a real tree.
