Second post in a day... I can see I'm going to be doing a lot of catch up posts this Blogmas! Anyway- so I put the Christmas decorations up on Sunday, too early? I tend to put them up around the 30th of November as I couldn't bare not having a Christmassy home for the whole of December!
We always go for a real tree... although they come with a hefty price tag- £44... it is completely worth it to have that Christmas tree smell filling your home. We tend to get ours from Raby Castle, a local medieval castle. We go each year, as they also have a lovely Christmas market, Santas Grotto, Christmas shop, and the best countryside grounds. Although the weather was awful we still set out to find the perfect tree.
Once you have the tree up, you might as well put the rest of the decorations up. Although some people colour coordinate their decorations (I aspire to be one of these people), you can see ours tree is the complete opposite... we add to our decorations year on year so its a pretty random mix!
