Copper Christmas Tree

I've ended up with a very copper Christmas tree this year, and I really like it. I know, it's inevitable, I'm a blogger and I have copper tree decoratons. Although, I didn't buy them for myself, so do I therefore have some individuality?

My mum returned with these delicate copper leaves as a present for my tree earlier on in the month. They have an invisible string attatched to them so they appear to have sprouted from the tree itself. My little potted Christmas tree is from IKEA, I got it a couple of years ago as I wanted ine with a prettier base and more realistic foliage. Wire wraps around the trunk of the tree. I think that's what it's called but somehow I imagine a tree trunk to be a lot thicker. Anyway, everything about it is perfect and you probably need one in your life.

My lovely friend bought me these copper fairylights. They're little cookie cutters in different shapes; a gingerbread man, Christmas tree and star. The string is actually quite long for battery operated, novelty fairylights and they are so bright unlike ones I've had from Primark. I love these Paperchase ones as they double up as baubles for your tree. If you want to keep it quite minimalist, or you're just really lazy, you could just string these around the tree and you've decorated all in one go!

I have to admit, I think most of my tree is from IKEA. Apart from the odd decoartion I've treasured for years (stolen from the families main tree) and the brown birds that I bought from James Brindley. I'm a strong believer that Christmas trees should always have birds on. When I'm older I might dedicate a tree in my house to just birds. This is happening.
