Last week I got my MA results and at first I was disappointed before looking at the bigger picture. At the time, the only thing I thought would cheer me up would be to buy a Christmas tree and decorate it ASAP. At the beginning of the week, I had been to a local garden centre in Tiptree (Perrywoods) and bought a large quantity of decorations. When the cashier said the price, I thought I was going to have a heart attack! But now as I sit here writing this, staring in adoration at my tree, I am glad I got all the baubles I wanted as no one can look at a Christmas tree and feel sad! I also got some really unique and quirky decorations from Paperchase and I just wanted to share what I got today, just in case anyone is in need of inspiration, also, I just love Christmas and my tree so want to show it off!I wanted to do a different colour scheme to the traditional red and gold as I wanted to have just white LED lights to make the colours stand out for themselves. I went with silver, blue, purple and pink – I used pastel colours and also deeper shades of blue, purple and hot pink so they all complement one another well. At first, I was worried I didn’t get enough baubles so I ordered more from Amazon, but it turns out I had too many and didn’t even use one box! I have got a real Christmas tree and it is massive! It’s about 7.5ft tall and 2m wide but I love it!From Paperchase I also found a hidden gem in a Christmas craft book! It’s so cute and I love it! It was only £10.00 and if you have kids or just want to put a personal touch on your cards and gifts, it’s definitely something I would recommend you buying. The decorations I purchased from there were quite expensive individually but they were 3 for 2 and just jazz up the tree a bit! So that’s how my Christmas is shaping up so far! My bedroom is like an Amazon warehouse and I seriously need to get my arse into gear and start wrapping the presents so they can go under the tree.I suppose there’s nothing left to say except:MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
