Christmas 2012 | First X'mas Tree Shots at Orchard Road

Most of the Christmas decorations are up now. Some have been ready as early as end October! This year's Christmas decorations along Orchard Road are rather pretty with hearts, doves and classic Christmas toys like nutcracker soldiers and trains. The street light-up began on 17 Nov 2012 and will last until Sun 6 Jan 2013. You can even bring part of Orchard Road's Christmas magic home with limited edition items {e.g. keychains, magnets, mugs, tote bags} modeled after the motifs and themes.

I took Lil Pumpkin's first Christmas tree shot of the season outside Paragon, one of the big shopping malls in town.

There's really so many beautiful Christmas trees around Singapore and I hope to capture as many as possible Lil Pumpkin with them :) Must try and do it soon before the streets get too crowded with everyone rushing to do their Christmas shopping :P

Where's your fave place to take Christmas tree shots?

I Blog on Tues with Essentially Jess.

Oh man, I LOVE Orchard Road!!! The shopping there is endless!!!
I think we'll take the boys to Martin Place here in Sydney. There's going to be a massive tree there (if it's not up already...eeks!)

I thought Orchard Rd was pretty impressive even without gigantic Christmas trees! Makes Lil Pumpkin look even smaller!

That is a beautiful tree!

I hope to be able to even get a tree this year.. I threw our yukky old one that was falling apart out. And haven't replaced it yet.

I am planning a little photo shoot with the boys this weekend to get our Christmas shots.

Oh I love Christmas! Every year I plan to take the kids to the lighting of the tree, and then every year i forget! Maybe this year, if it's not already up!
