Can you believe it’s 2 more weeks till Christmas?
London has been magical with the snow today. I’m feeling so festive.
Around this time in December, we as a family, would go out to buy our real Christmas tree.
This year I’ve broken from tradition, as I have decided to get a large faux Christmas tree from Balsam Hill. Ta-dah! Here it is. It’s our very own Rainbow faux Christmas tree. What do you think? Very bright and colourful right? I’ve totally lost count on the number of baubles I had used. Aren’t these blue and purple Georgetown baubles just gorgeous? I must admit, I did feel a bit apprehensive about getting a large faux Christmas tree, but my worries were short lived, as I was totally impressed with how real it looked.
Our tree was a 7 feet Royal blue Spruce with candlelight LEDs. I am now a full faux tree convert, even though I do miss that wonderful scent of Christmas you get from a real tree. Here are more Georgetown baubles from Balsam Hill The colours of my Rainbow Christmas tree really complement my room decor don’t you think?
Gayle Mansfield kindly sent me those A3 sized prints on the wall. Aren’t they gorgeous? My Vitra Eames blanket on the sofa match the gold and burnt copper baubles on the tree. I’m so in love with these turquoise blue and gold Georgetown baubles too. Here’s another view. What do you think of the Lodge faux fur tree skirt in ivory? It reminds me of snow and is so super soft. The tree was so easy to assemble and comes in 3 parts, making it light to carry up and down the stairs. Doesn’t that glow make you feel warm and cosy? So, would you consider a faux tree? I’m so pleased with my Rainbow faux Christmas tree. Now all I need to do is organise myself to wrap the gifts.
Talking about gifts, I’ll be posting my last minute Christmas gift guide on the blog this week. Can’t wait to show you.
( All photography and styling were done by myself. The tree and Georgetown baubles were a gift.)
