This year is my first Christmas living out of home and I was so excited to finally get a chance to buy and decorate my very own tree with Josh. We're hoping to start a few cute Christmas conditions that we can stick to every year. For starters, decorating the tree together.
I picked out our tree from Big W. The Soho Christmas Tree. 195cm tall, realistic looking pine leaves scattered throughout, and pretty golden lights already threaded through the tree, so no need to add our own Christmas lights.
I decorated the tree with three packs of baubles also from Big W. At about $10 a pack it was pretty affordable, especially for our first tree. One pack was just filled with gold baubles of all different sizes, while the other two, my personal favourite, had black, copper, rose gold, gold and silver baubles.
It was so good to find a pack of baubles for so cheap, because it was the only copper ones that we came across the entire time we were searching. That weren't sold individually that is.

Josh suggested it would be cute if we had a nice little ornament of our own choosing that represented ourselves. A special bauble that would be a bit of a tradition. We looked through all the beautiful glass and ceramic ornaments at David Jones and I finally picked a cute little Christmas penguin. Whose ski's are candy canes. Delightful. Josh's is a tad less Christmassy, but a bit more representative of himself than mine is. He's a lover of photography, and studies journalism, so it's a good fit!
I'm really delighted with how the tree turned out! Josh even set it up on a timer so that the tree turns on and off by itself every night. It gives the living room a magical glow and really gets me into the Christmas spirit!
