Oh what a week, we have all been ill. So roll on Friday as this weekend is Christmas Tree Weekend.

We are spending Christmas in London this year creating our own traditions that the girls will hand down to their families.

I have a great affinity with Christmas. Rose Bay was born on the 21st in the snowiest day that London had seen for twenty years. She was the best Christmas present I could have wished for.

It was our first Christmas in London, and our first tree together. Slightly on the sparse side but we didn’t mind.

That was 4 Christmas days ago, so our tree now has lots more baubles and homemade treasures to go on it which my little Christmas present four years ago now loves to decorate.

Although this year I am taking the dressing of the tree a bit more seriously. So I have been searching around for some inspiration for our fifth Christmas tree.

How To Style Your Tree

 Keeping it Neutral

I love the simplicity of this one. My favourite touch is the pine cones stacked at the bottom of the tree.

 A Table Top Tree

Perfect for the flat dwellers among us.

For the Christmas Table

I love this, am going to attempt one this weekend with my stash of spray paint.

 For your Little Ones

So when I have my dream house with its own nursery, this will be the tree I do for the girls.

A Simple Colour Theme

There is something about picking a simple colour duo and sticking with it. I love the red and silver combination, and the matching gifts underneath.

Simple Styling

Super simple, I love how this tree looks like it has been kissed by Jack Frost.

 

Christmas Tree Shopping

There are so many brilliant places to get your tree if you live in London.
This weekend we are off The Christmas Forest. They have pop up forest in lots of different London Locations such as Dulwhich, Ealing, Finsbury Park, Highbury and Islington, Kensal Green, Putney, Richmond and Stoke Newington.
They are a really fab company with a free mince pie to warm you up with you are finding your perfect tree. They also plant a tree in the drylands of Africa for every Christmas tree brought.
I also love Pines and Needles and have used this quite a bit with styling work. They are serious about their trees and offer lots of services from installing a beautiful outdoor tree with incredible lights, to wreaths, garlands and a chic selection of decorations. A brilliant service that I can personally recommend.

Brilliant Baubles

Every year I seem to go a bit mad a buy a whole new set of baubles, so I am going to try and buy some super chic stand out ones this year to get my beautifully dressed tree of to a good start.
These are some of my favourite. I am going for a pop art theme this year with neon baubles and polar bears on Motorcycles.
