How to Have the Perfect Christmas Tree Decorating Day

Choosing the Perfect Christmas Tree
Christmas Tree Pick Up

Having a Christmas tree in your home is essential in creating a festive atmosphere for the season and is often a focal point for many family activities and traditions. For me, it all starts with choosing a tree and I love a real one because you can’t beat the earthy, pine scent.

There’s really nothing else that feels more festive than visiting a Christmas tree farm and afterwards, having fun decorating it while you sip hot chocolate... or in my case, crement!

So, pull out your favourite Christmas jumper, jeans and boots and head to your local Christmas tree farm. Remember to take a few warm blankets, hats and scarves with you to help you stay warm!

At the farm, decide what shape tree will work best in your home. Most Christmas trees are pyramid or cone-shaped - the pyramid-shaped tree is taller and has a more elegant look while a cone-shaped tree tends to be short (and may be dwarfed by other furniture in the room) with dense branches making it perfect for decorating with lots of baubles! Have fun choosing it, cutting it down and strapping it to the top of your car (or sticking it in the boot!) to make the drive back home.

Once home, the fun really begins as it’s time to decorate the Christmas tree. Once you’ve untangled the lights (tell me I am wrong!), wrap them around the tree, add fun and your sentimental decorations, tinsel and a topper - I love a traditional angel. A perfectly decorated tree is not the goal here but to have an afternoon filled with laughter and memories is.

To enhance the Christmas tree decorating experience - light some candles, play your favourite festive tunes and make a hot chocolate (or pour yourself a glass of fizz!).

At the end of the day, turn off the house lights and marvel at your fabulous Christmas tree!
