For day 14 on Blogmas and its all about our Christmas Tree!
This year we have bitten the bullet and bought a new tree! Our old tree was 6ft, black and pre lit! Our new tree is 7ft, green and unlit!
We chose to go with bronze coloured baubles, white lights and red tinsel with the odd old decoration! For our old decorations that we kept from our old tree we have a Paddington Bear, a Santa, two Santa keys, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Our family decoration and lastly our tribute decorations.
Along with our new bronze baubles, we also bought the carrot decorations from Aldi and a green dinosaur!
Our Mickey and Minnie Mouse decorations are pretty special as we bought them seven years ago at Ye Olde Christmas shop in Magic Kingdom when we were on our honeymoon in Orlando.
Our tribute decorations are for my Nannie and also my great aunt. For my Nannie we have a gold star as James called her his star in the sky when she died and for my great aunt we have a white westie dog as she loved westies.
Our family decoration we bought in 2016 in a local shopping centre from one of the stalls to personalise decorations. We bought it when we were out the weekend that Freddie turned one!
We bought a new tree topper in the form of an angel to replace the gold star we used to have.
Not only did we buy a new tree for the lounge we bought a smaller battery operated 3ft tree for James to have in his bedroom! On that tree he has the decorations that he made at Baltic, some left over decorations from our big tree and the small decorations he got in a toot toot advent calendar a few years ago!
