Christmas trees – the good, the bad, the UGLY!

December 7, 2010

Anyone walking past my desk this afternoon would have thought I was having a webchat with a clown and a murderer at the same time! You see, I’ve been searching the web for Christmas tree decorating ideas, and while some of them filled me with festive joy, other so-called ‘best designs’ were enough to make a grown woman/decorating addict weep!

The good Christmas tree

Although I’d like a fuller tree (this one looks like it’s going to get frost-bite!), I adore the cute vintage decorations and homespun style. You can pick up everything for this look at John Lewis.

The bad Christmas tree

Although I’m a fan of all things ‘weird and wonderful’ I’m just not convinced by this alternative Christmas tree. I’m with Casa Sugar on this one, it’s just not … well … Christmassy?

The ugly Christmas tree

Oh my! This is what happens when bad Christmas decorations happen to good trees. I’m sure it works for some people, but do those people have a Lion, a Witch and also a Wardrobe??

p.s Is that actually a STONE HEAD in the middle of this tree? (or am I seeing a ghost?)

Check out this new video from housetohome on how to decorate a Christmas tree.

It’s got some great (nice and easy) ways to create the perfect look without breaking the bankĀ  – which, in a time where the my bank balance is starting to get nervous at the sight of my Christmas shopping list, suits me down to a tea!

24 days until Christmas tree time!

Not that i’m counting or anything? There’s nothing more festive about decorating your Christmas tree. I find it surprisingly relaxing – especially since I don’t have to watch my parents drag out my kindergarden attempts at ‘homespun decorations’ anymore!

I’ve been busy filming one of Homes & Gardens‘ top stylists, Melanie Molesworth, putting together the perfect Christmas tree – and stealing all of her style tips (muuh ah ah!!)

I’ll pop it up as soon as possible, for those who want to get shopping for those all-important Christmas tree decorations, but have a look at the finished result – it’s just so glam!
