Shopping for Christmas trees the possibilities are endless, Pine? Spruce? Fir? where to begin? First things first. How big do you want your tree? Theres no point buying a 9 foot tree when you only have a small space. Measure the space. If your space is small go for potted trees or more than one. Clusters of small table trees look good or perhaps you don’t go for a tree at all and opt for seasonal foliage or flowers?
If you do go for a tree you could always take away the bottom branches which allows the tree to drink more water (thus reducing needles falling) and this gives you some extra branches to play with.
This year we have opted for a Noble Fir. Big feathery branches in a silvery blue hue of green. I’ve kept decorations on the tree simple in shades of teal, turquoise and silver to complement the dark teal colour of the room.
With the extra branches I’ve made a wreath for the door and a focal point for the mantle by adding eucalyptus leaves, twinkly lights and a couple of decorative pheasants! Sounds odd but it works.
The house is a beautiful mix of pine and eucalyptus with hues of teal, green, blue and silvery twinkly lights and candles!
Oh I love Christmas, beautiful natural decorations, and that fresh tree smell, I’d like a tree all year around! I’ll be satisfied with Christmas!
Now for the curtains and fire! ……A women’s work is never done!
