Dressing the tree is a great way to start decorating your home ready for Christmas. Start with pouring a glass of your favourite tipple and let the fun begin! A real tree is a must for me. They fill the room with the natural scent of winter and every year you get a new shape to play with. For a classic look; use lots of plain white fairy lights, white ceramic tree decorations and home-made garlands of natural string and pine cones.
