It seems like everybody else in the whole world has already put up their Christmas tree, and last friday we FINALLY got ours. It’s a long over due post, but its finally here… Getting our Christmas Tree 2018!!
Every year we go to a lovely little place in Dunkeswell called Connetts Farm. This is our Christmas Tree Farm of choice mainly due to the lovely family who run it and to support their local business. They also supplies mince pies and chocolates as you pick from their wonderful variety of trees. Most importantly they have a snow machine, which obviously means…. far too many pictures!!
So last Friday my Dad, Mum, sister and boyfriend and I all piled in the car and popped into Dunkeswell, where we chose two trees: one for the snug and one for the kitchen. The criteria was simple, tall for the kitchen and short/ bushy for the snug. That being said, my boyfriend is an excellent photographer and Rose, Andy and I all have Canon Cameras therfore we spent the majority of the time taking pictures instead of looking for trees (sorry Mum and Dad).
As you can see it really was a magical afternoon and I had so much fun taking pictures with my two favourite people. I can’t believe we’ve never taken pictures there before, especially with how picturesque the snow machine makes it.
Back to the trees!! Mum and Dad found two beautiful trees and loaded them into the car. I’m sure you can relate to me when I say, we drove back with the end of tree poking into the back of my head.
We spent the evening decorating the tree in the kitchen with sliver and white bauble baubles and cold blue lights. We had Christmas music on and we even made some mulled wine. Coming down to the tree this morning really made it feel like Christmas. Now we just have to do the other tree!!
Do you get a real tree for Christmas? Have you decorated yours yet?
