How to decorate a Christmas Tree


It's the Christmas season.

The malls are all decked out in Christmas fashion. The traditional substantial 50-foot tree, the dazzling lights and the not-so-subtle Christmas SALE make the mood for the big day.

We always celebrated this occasion as it signifies the coming of Christ. So it is time for us to put a little festive cheer into our humble abode.

Our Christmas tree is stored in the storeroom. It has been with the family for about 10 years ( yes, it is older than us!) Yet it is still sturdy and reliable. We love the way it looks tree-like. Definitely, a good investment made for the family.

First off, we had to place all the stalks in place. The stalks are colour coded, so putting them on the tree is a breeze.


We did our best to help out. But given our height limitation, the above is all we could do. Daddy had to finish putting the whole tree in place.

 We are most excited about byaboutecorating the tree.
The first item to be on the tree is the lights. From experience, placing the lights first is a must. The other decorations would be in the way if it were to be set later.
We started off by placing our Merry Christmas sign (which we got from a log cake some years ago) and some angels.
Next up are the Christmas balls. We choose a red and gold theme. We love the warm colours of the music as it goes well with our surroundings. Choose a colour scheme that blends with the house. You want it to look natural and not like it comes out of a circus.

We added some flowers. Our tree is about 6 feet tall, and our 10 flowers are sufficient to cover the whole tree. The flowers are available from shopping malls in bunch. You must cut them into individual stalks to place them n the trees.

Acorns and angels
Some little decoration pieces, such as acorns, do make the trees more realistic.

Remember that personal touch...

The Star

As a tradition, the star goes up last on the tree. This is because the star signifies the Star of Bethlehem or Christmas Star that leads the shepherds to baby Jesus at the manger.

The Unveiling

Our tree was done up in about an hour. We would keep the tree there till year-end.

Our Christmas Tree
Now all we need are presents to complete the tree ...

And we received our first one from Sentosa over the weekend!

Our first present

It's less than a month to Christmas; have you put up your tree?
