Who can deny the joy of putting up your Christmas tree?
Once you’ve chosen your tree, whether real or fake, it’s time to make it look gorgeous, so grab a mince pie, a glass of champagne or mulled wine and get the whole family involved for some seriously cosy pre-Christmas action. We have visited the Bellagio Home & Garden in Limassol and we chose our Christmas Tree and baubles.
But if you feel like your spruce is never quite up to scratch, or you just want some inspiration on how to decorate your tree this year, then read on for tips and tricks from the experts.
1) Pick a good location
Whether your tree is real or artificial, you need to consider where to place it, especially if space is at a premium in your home. Ideally it will be near a plug socket, avoiding the need for wires across the living room floor, and you can rearrange furniture if necessary to avoid clumsy kids and wagging tails from getting in the way of your festive creation.
2) Measure up
Having picked the best place for your tree, measure the width, depth and ceiling height and don’t forget to factor in the height of your tree stand and topper. Give your tree enough room so its branches hang freely and you can decorate all around.
Tip: If you’ve got a real tree that’s too tall, always trim it from the bottom so it maintains its triangular shape.
Fluff those branches. Yes, that’s official advice from Christmas experts at John Lewis & Partners who say artificial trees especially need serious “fluffing”. (You’d probably need “fluffing” too if you’d been squashed in a cardboard box in the loft for 12 months.)
