I know it’s still November and it feels like Christmas is ages away, but it’s only a month to go and I bloody love Christmas so today was the day we popped out to get a Christmas tree and cover it in lovely decorations. I’m going to be away this Christmas, which is the main reason we really put up the tree early, so I can actually feel Christmassy in our home before I head off, although I’m sure Disney World will offer plenty of festive cheer to make up for it.
Our Christmas tree was a total bargain from Tesco at only £15 and it doesn’t seem that cheap in quality either, it was probably only around £3 including a token I got for swapping a clubcard voucher, it’s so satisfying to be a savvy shopper.
We didn’t want to do what we’d done at University houses and get a ready-made box so we’ve spend this weekend and the last couple, sourcing decorations from different places. From John Lewis to Wilkinsons, I think we have a nice mixture that goes well together – I’m also totally loving that there are a few animals in there, as though they’re actually living in the Christmas tree.
The tree actually seems a lot bigger in our little flat than it did in Tesco, and it’s really imposing but I like it. Have you been thinking about putting your decorations up yet, or am I little premature? Where are your favourite places to pick up decorations, have you made any of your own?
I hope your Sunday was as ‘productive’ as mine, I’m off for Sweet Chilli Toad in the Hole – a Moon creation, it smells amazing! – with mince pies and brandy butter to follow
