Our lil' Christmas tree 2017

A couple of days ago was one of days ago we finally bought our Christmas tree! It was (and always is) one of my favourite days of the year.

As usual we got out lil' tree at our local 'Pines and Needles' (which let me tell you, is the most festive,  jolly place on earth!).  The only problem, when buying a Christmas tree for us, is that we have high ceilings in out house which is perfect, but not the best amount of space for a big tree. Trust me, we've bought a small tree before and put it on a little table in the corner. Which definitely isn't as gorgeous as having one big tree. In the end we decided to go for a 7ft Noble Fir tree, its absolutely beautiful and perfect for our living room!

At home we carried on our Christmas traditions and decorated the tree whilst drinking hot chocolate and busting all the dance moves to the 'Motown Christmas album' . To make things even more festive  London saw its first proper snow the next morning too (and its settling, so...).

We did the same decorating as we do every year. A set of fairy lights, a white bead garland, silver acorn baubles, a set of different shaped and different coloured glass baubles, bird baubles and your typical fairy tale mushrooms wrapped around the branches with wire! 

I think its fair to say that we go for a woodland theme each year (with the acceptation of my brother's one robot bauble!)

In all, the day was magical!
