I love decorating the tree at Christmas and this year we are having a real tree (Nordmann Fir: no needle drop!) after many years of fake trees. Putting up the tree and getting those decorations just right is the beginning of Christmas for me so I wanted to share my top tips for making this celebration as much fun as possible:
Double check those lights...take it from me, you don't want to arrange them beautifully for half an hour only to find they don't work (*throws lights across the room, scowling)
Remove cats from the room - all glass decorations will be utterly destroyed
Have alcohol to hand in the form of Baileys coffee....yum
Have Muppet Christmas Carol on play in the background...there is no better festive film!
Have your favourite treats to hand, Stollen, mince pies, pile of brandy butter....more yum...keep up those blood sugar levels!
And it goes without saying that some of those decorations must be hand made!
Happy Tree Dressing and thanks for being here.
