Firstly, why bother with Christmas Decorations???
Because they invite people in! This is the time of the year where you simply want people you cherish to pop in so to draw them in you need to make your home more homely and welcoming.
Second question, how do you possible choose what decorations suit your taste and makes your home catchy? Answer = Your Christmas tree!!
Now when it comes to Christmas trees there are two options, a traditional tree or a new tree!!!
Traditional trees are the beautifully decorated pine trees (real or fake) with traditional decoration and either a bow or angel at the top, for example …..
And then there are ‘New Trees’
Our mum is the Queen of “New Christmas Trees” and every year for as long as we can remember she creates the most amazing trees from her imagination. We live on a farm and we do have pine trees but two of us suffer from very bad asthma and allergies so she ditched the whole idea of a tree and creates something we can all be around.
For example, Mum’s tree last year….
And there are many more, you can simply let your imagination go crazy.
