Our final Christmas is fast looming here at Pen Y Llechwedd. Our first Christmas without our daughter and our last here at Pen Y Llechwedd is gearing us up for an emotional one. The first of the Christmas lights went up last weekend, and for the first time every we have the Christmas Tree up in November. While we don’t know exactly how long we have left here, we thought we would make the most of the Christmas spirit.
A Final Christmas Tree For Pen Y Llechwedd
I’ve been admiring a few American home bloggers in my Instagram feed these last few weeks as the set about decorating their homes for Christmas. One of my favourite, actually has a Christmas tree in nearly every room of there home. While not a practical idea for our home or our climate, I did decided that I would like 2 trees this year, our usual DIY creation in the lounge room and a beautiful, picture perfect traditional tree in the sitting room.
Having a traditional tree is a real novelty for us, when our new tree arrived from Balsam Hill we were so excited, it felt a little like Christmas morning when opening all the boxes.
Our new BH Fraser Fir Candlelight LED tree*, arrived in two boxes and was super easy to assemble. Gloves are supplied with the tree, to help with the ‘fluffing’ process. Having not partaken in the ‘fluffing’ process before, I found this easy to follow guide on their website.
The Builder was very pleased to find this tree came with its own lights attached, which saved him a good hour of his time trying to place them so they are just right.
We added these pretty LED fairy light ornaments* that add a warm glow when nestled into the branches.
Finally we dressed the base of the tree with this skirt*, to hide the stand and the box it is sitting on. It gives the tree a tidy finish and the colour blends well with the colours in the room.
I am very happy with the way this tree has enhanced our sitting room and bought the Christmas feel to another part of our home.
I love the simplicity of the tree with only the lights, such a calming tree for our sedate sitting room, leaving the wildly decorated one the busy lounge room. While our Christmas will be very different this year, we are excited to embrace all the changes this season will bring.
What style of Christmas tree do you have in your home? How fantastic is a tree with lights already attached!
