The tree is up!

This time last year I was sellotaping battery operated fairy lights to the wooden pelmets of the static caravan and making tinfoil star decorations for our 3ft potted Christmas tree. This year, I’m hauling in a 9ft Christmas tree (don’t worry, Matt was here to lend a hand!) and decorating it with absolutely stunning baubles from Cox & Cox. Oh, how things have changed in a year!

When it came to decorating our tree, I was very clear that I wanted it to colour coordinate with our home interiors (would you expect anything less from me?!). To tie in with my decor and the colour scheme within our open plan living space, I needed to source tree decorations that were contemporary in design yet classic in style, and in the colours of blue, grey, gold and silver.

So, I teamed up with Cox & Cox to decorate our Christmas tree. I have always been a huge fan of their homewares and more so now of their Christmas decorations. They have some absolutely beautiful tree decorations online from cute, traditional hanging felt animals, to more modern geometric, handpainted glass baubles.

I chose textured greys, iridescent golds, geometric glass and ones with handpainted snowflakes on. I am thrilled with my selection of baubles, they are simply stunning and just what I was looking for. They give an elegant look to my tree and are just beautiful. I hope you like them too, and my tree for that matter…!?!
