So this year I decided to have my own Christmas tree in my room. I never really do this because I love decorating the main family tree with baubles and little bits that have been collected over the years, however this year I wanted to add an extra bit of festive decor to my room with my own tree!
I bought the tree and all of the decorations bar the lights from The Range. The one in my town has a huge Christmas section tucked away to the side and the minute you set foot in there you’re bound to find something you love. I bought the artificial Norway Spruce in the 150cm size which you can find here, and it cost £17.99. Plus for someone who is completely incompetent when it comes to handy work, it was really easy to assemble! The colour scheme in my room is grey, mustard and copper so I wanted to get decorations that matched with my theme even if a great big green tree wouldn’t. These adorable copper stars were £1.99 each and come with LED “candles” inside to give a lovely warm glow to your tree.
I bought 2 boxes of assorted copper, gold and brown mini baubles for around £2.99 per pack; each pack contains 30 baubles so you can imagine how long it took to thread all of those! I think they make lovely fillers and add sparkle to the tree.
The Range had so many options in terms of decorations; luckily they’re all organised in the aisles in different themes so I could see all of the copper and gold things together. I couldn’t resist getting a couple of these felt robins, the gorgeous copper trees and this funky reindeer which matches some of the colours in my room so well that I think I may well keep him out after Christmas!
I got some garland tinsel with holly and berries on it to fill in the gaps and am also planning on finding some thick copper tinsel to really pad the tree out and bring the whole look together. I’m so pleased with how it all looks and the fact that I bought the tree and all of the decorations for around £45. I put little candy canes from Poundland in red, green and pink on there but will be using these inside present bags soon so they’ll come off quite quickly – they’re the perfect midnight snack too!!
Lots of Love,
