Advent Calendar - Door 16


Undressed. 
Its a Bottle-brush tree


Hundred lights
In Victorian times, the tree would have been decorated with candles


Tree after dressed

The "Bottle-brush" Christmas tree is finally up and we listened to Christmas songs whilst my husband dressed the tree, getting into the Christmas spirit! He seems to like doing the tree so I let him and I think he makes quite a good job of it. All the baubles are vintage inherited from my parents including the blue baubles from Advent Calendar - Door 9  But since taking the photo of the box of blue baubles we are now down to nine of them.

There is the history behind the Christmas Tree on yesterdays post

  2. I think your husband did an excellent job. It looks lovely. I’ve always wanted real candles on the tree, but it must be incredibly dangerous so probably better to stick to lights. xxx
