This year was the first year that I have decorated my own Christmas tree and I have to say I’m more than a little proud of it. After years of watching my mom dress branches with delicate baubles that ooze glitz and glamour I have finally created a classy Christmas tree of my very own. Read on to discover the secret to creating coveted trees this Christmas.

I would love to tell you that creating a fabulous Christmas tree is easy yet this is not the case. Decorating a tree should be fun but there are a few rules to abide by if you want your tree to be the envy of your friends and family.

  • Buy a real tree. Not only will your living room smell beautiful but real trees are available in all shapes and sizes and can add a little character to your home.
  • Take a designated driver who is willing to carry and transport the tree.
  • Don’t buy your baubles from B & Q. You might be able to buy 300 baubles for a pound but the key to a magical fairytale tree is to find bespoke baubles (or borrow them from your mum) and dangly decorations that make your tree unique.
  • Check that your tree lights work before you spend an hour getting them just right.
  • Stick to a color theme. Silver or gold tree decorations are my favorite and they will make your tree look expensive even if it isn’t.
  • Swap tinsel for silver beads and crystal garlands. They will catch the light beautifully and add extra twinkle.
  • Get creative. Don’t be afraid to include bows, angel wings and glittery halos.
  • Don’t go it alone. There is no shame in having a little help from your friends. Tall ones if possible as it is tricky to reach the very top.
  • Don’t forget the fairy.

PS If you want to create the ultimate Christmas tree, a few chocolatey treats are guaranteed to go down well with guests.
