Christmas snuck up on us relatively fast this year. We were really excited to put up the tree that we purchased second hand from a family, but when we took the tree out of the box we knew we had made a mistake. The tree is way too big for our small apartment, so we packed it back into the box and sold it off to the next family who will enjoy it more. Since my apartment doesn't allow real trees, I wanted a real looking tree. Luckily after a few hours of scouting online we were able to narrow it down. I've already decided that the ornaments and lights stick to 3 colours, white, silver and gold. For some reason the brass from the ornaments and the dark greens from the tree really bring out that Christmas feeling for me.
