Oh Christmas Tree

Tomorrow we are going to visit Oma, so today we attempted to have a bit of festive cheer to give us something nice to come home to.

Since we'll be traveling so much, we opted for a 10€ replacement tree. It's minimal, festive, and will last well into the winter months. I can already say the smell of fresh pine is so wonderful.

Now we just need to get a few more of our decorations out, since we're going to the US in just about a week!

After I picked out everything I wanted, the florist said, it's 'klein aber fein' (small but nice). I definitely agree!

I really love that flower pot. Is it a flower pot? The colour red is so beautiful

Hi Emily!
It's nice and simple! I like it :)
I just finished decorating the Xmas tree too.

Have a good Sunday!

Is that a cute little bird in your tree? I love the candy cane!

I love this tree! I wish there was something similar to it that I could pick up in Ireland.

That's great that you still decorated, and managed a mini-tree! Obviously, we have no decorations here this year. Even if you'll be home for the holidays, decorating helps you to get in the mood!

it's actually a vase. A very simple one. I love the red too - they are so cheery and the added bonus is that they last quite a bit longer than flowers.

Did you put the real candles on your tree? I still can't believe people do that here. I did see some that were very beautiful, but I still can't imagine.

I'm surprised you noticed that! I saw that little wooden bird in Salzburg and brought him home. We still need to add a few more decorations from our travels.

check out your local florist - you might be able to find something similar. We just picked the pieces out while we were there.

I hope being home will enable you to get some of that festive cheer! It's so nice to have something small and colorful around - you should get some flowers for yourself!

Hi Emily,
There are not real candles :) These flower lights i bought when i was in Thailand. They fit well on the tree.
