Measuring up for the Christmas Tree
With December fast approaching, it's time to think about your Christmas tree. Before you set off to buy your tree, you need to measure your room. I know it sounds obvious but trees that seem small in a barn can look enormous when you get them home.
So measure the ceiling height and deduct a few centimetres for the height of the stand. What do you put on the top of your tree? Make sure there's enough space between the top of the tree and the ceiling to show off your star, fairy or angel rather than bending over the top of the tree and squashing your angel.
It’s a good idea to measure the width of the space as well as some trees are very wide.
We open for Christmas Trees on Thursday 1st December.
