Oh Christmas Tree! #Project52

I never used to put up my tree until Winter Solstice but this year, infused with an unexpected dose of festive joy I have gone all out to celebrate the whole of December with my family! So on December the first we found the tree we wanted to bring into our home for Christmas.

Ikea, Christmas

The next morning, the children decorated the tree, sorting through decorations that spanned two decades of my family Christmases.  Each one brought with it its own special memory.

The theme and colour scheme isn't exactly like the trees you see on the TV ads, but it is exactly how my children wanted it to be.  It's loud, mix 'n' match and completely original!

Decorated with laughter and music filling the house, the tree exudes joy.

The lights sparkle in the darkness.

The crazy array of ornaments, toys and baubles are just perfect for my slightly crazy family!

  1. A beautiful tree. I'm all in favour of trees being eclectic and personal rather than strictly following a colour scheme. We're putting ours up tomorrow.

  2. Fantastic tree! As much as I'd love a theme, we just have so many decorations which we love, and are completely random. The best kind of tree then!

  5. Ours is much the same to be honest and so is my parents. Feels wasteful to get rid of stuff for the sake of a coordinated theme and my son loves that he made a lot of the decorations and that they are different colours.

  6. That us lovely! We have the same - a mismatched collection of 'treasures' collected or made over the years.

    My kids have taught me a tidy, co-ordinated tree is no fun (and never going to happen!) Love your tree x

  9. I think your Christmas Tree looks absolutely gorgeous - the fact the children decorated it makes it even more special.
