Decorating The Christmas Tree
Happy December first everyone!
I hope you’ve got the Christmas tunes blasting, a hot cup of festive tea/coffee/hot chocolate on the go, and are ready for BLOGMAS.
Well, to be specific, I hope you’re ready for a full-on breakdown of how I decorated my Christmas tree.
Because, although it’s not an exact science, it is very important when it comes to the vibe of your entire house.
Shit tree = shit house. Am I right?
I’ve never been the girl to just throw tinsel and baubles everywhere and call it a day. My process is meticulous. In fact, last year I re-designed my tree about five times, and while I will say now that it was over-the-top, it was my best Christmas tree yet. So there’s that…
This year we’re in our new house (!!!) which is kind of a big deal and so so exciting. Everything is chic and modern and white, and so I knew I would have to step my game up a little.
And oh boy, did I step it up.
First, I switched my usual bright white LED lights for warm white fairy lights and I ditched the tinsel. It’s very Australian to have tinsel on your tree, but as my festive vibe is very Scandi-inspired, it was time for that weird, crunchy stuff to go. It’s also kind of a hazard when it comes to cats, so I’m very happy with my decision.
I stuck with my usual mint-white-grey colour scheme, with pops of interest: which includes anything metallic, little crochet creatures, cinnamon sticks, star anise and luxe glass baubles filled with greenery and glitter and sparkles. I like to think of it as nature inspired cutesy chic… if that’s even a thing? Here’s a closer look at my tree this year.
How are you decorating your tree this year? Also – do you put tinsel on your tree? I’ve seen so many people in Australia that use it, but very few in the US/UK/rest of the world that do too. Let me know in the comments below.
