LIFESTYLE | OUR CHRISTMAS TREE (2015 EDITION)


Here are a few snapshots of our Christmas tree this year. This is the second time we've had a real living Christmas tree in the house and with that comes all the excitement of choosing the right one and then of course, decorating it! We picked up our tree from the local park and with our dog Fischer's help (he loves to get involved every year), chose a 7 foot Nordman Fir (which apparently is a variety that lasts the longest indoors). Thought it would be fun to make this kind of post an annual thing and document our trees starting from now. Last year I somehow landed firm decorating rights to our tree and it ended up being a Game of Thrones themed tree (oh I know you're not surprised at all), but this year my housemates and I all got together to bedazzle it so it's more of a mish-mash of baubles. I think it still looks lovely though as everything fit into a neutral colour scheme with pops of red. I re-used my GoT baubles and Iron Throne ornament that I got from the HBO shop and most of the other decorations are from John Lewis. There are a few London themed ones of course to reflect my Anglophilia, and some feathered ones that I picked out after seeing them in Louise's unboxing video and falling in love with them too. A couple of cute animal and dog figurines feature as we are all avid animal lovers and the final thing that we are yet to place are the lights, but we found a couple of simple flashing red and white LED lights at Habitat that were already 50% off, score!

What does your tree look like this year? Any particular theme?

  2. I am not always a fan of a mish-mash christmas tree but you didn't over do it on yours so it just looks really pretty and quirky (in a good way!). It has a lot of character and just shows that several people came together for this tree, I really like it! Especially the Iron Throne ornament!
    Have a merry christmas!

  7. What an adorable dog! I think I squealed out loud at the sight! I didn't get to have a tree this year. My excuse was moving house meant that I didn't have time to put one up and such but really, I'm just super awful at getting involved with anything festive - such a misery haha! Your tree looks lovely though :) Game of Thrones decorations are certainly the kind of thing that might sway my decision to put some up next year ;)
