Decorations: the alternative edit

Why is tomorrow circled in my diary? There’s no birthday or special occasion. I’m not meeting friends or going out for dinner. But I am buying and decorating my Christmas tree, which is worthy of its very own entry.

I have the whole evening mapped out, from choosing the tree itself (it’s not as simple as just grab and go, I need to see lots of trees), taking it home and placing it in our bay window, before the real fun begins: decorating.

This year, I’m going a bit out there with decorations. From gold pineapples to sunglass-wearing angels, 2016’s tree is going to be a celebration of the quirkiest decorations out there, a few of which I’ve highlighted below.


1. Cactus decoration, Oliver Bonas 2. Eiffel Tower, Urban Outfitters 3. Telephone, John Lewis 4. Avocado, Etsy 5. Pineapple decoration, Oliver Bonas 6. Pink Flamingo, Truva 7. Reindeer Pinata, Urban Outfitters 8. Stacey tree topper, Harvey Nichols 9. Geometric baubels, Maison du Monde.

Which one of these is your favourite? How do you like to decorate your tree?
