A few weekends ago I headed to a Christmas Tree Farm to begin The Great Tree Hunt 2012. It was a beautiful morning: mist was gently rolling in over the surrounding hills and the early light danced gently upon the dew-laden branches, which make them twinkle as if they were already bedecked with fairy lights. With the same enthusiasm I had as a child, I hurried up and down between the rows of trees, touching, twirling and smelling the ones that caught my eye. Eventually I found a little area of cut trees grouped together because they didn’t make the Farm’s standard of a fully-shaped tree. I soon fell for two adorable trees, which were crying out for a loving home! I liked how they weren’t uniform in shape; their spindly and sparse appearance gave them a quirky, Scandi-like feel like that I instantly liked. Back home, I placed the smaller tree on my balcony and dressed the larger one indoors with a traditional scheme of red and white decorations. If you’ve decorated for the festive season, what look have you gone for?
