You guys, this Sunday is the 1st December which means ’tis officially the season to eat, drink, and of course, whack up your Chrissy tree.
The thought of spending a few hours strategically placing lights and ornaments all over your tree will either make you so happy that you’ll want to cover yourself in tinsel and chug brandy flavoured custard all afternoon, OR it’ll fill you with more dread that doing your tax return. Either way, if you celebrate Christmas, that puppy is going up whether you like it or not – so we thought we’d give you some inspo to shake it up a bit and make dressing your tree a little more exciting this year.
I’m certainly no decorating expert, but I reckon there’s a basic rule of thumb to follow when it comes to Christmas trees – a) you chocker that baby up with as many ornaments as possible which is perfect for making even the saddest tree look full and lush OR b) you let the tree be the hero and go super sparse with the decs.
And remember – NO tinsel. Ever.
A lil’ bit of rainbow heaven.
The check, the mint, the white poinsettas. Chic AF.
