I love Xmas! I just love it! Everything about it – the carols, the tree, the gifts, the long lunches and yes, even that ‘I ate so much I’ll burst!’ feeling.
I put our tree up a few days ago. This is the best tree I’ve ever had and coincidently it’s also the cheapest tree I’ve ever bought.
Last year in the midst of my sickness I was still keen to have a tree, so I bought this one at The Reject Shop for $15, expecting it would fall apart after a few days, but quite surprisingly it didn’t.
Best of all it’s so easy to put up and pack away – why? Because all the stalks are attached. You just fold them out and fluff them up at Xmas and then fold them back down in January. Fantastic!
My tip – if like me, you’re buying cheap decorations, there’s only one way to stop them from looking cheap and that is to stick to a simple colour scheme. I’ve opted for gold and silver – expensive looking colours without the expensive price tag. Good news – more money for pressies!
