Stacey Solomon warned her followers she has ditched the elegance and traditional colour-coordinated Christmas trees sweeping through social media nowadays as she unveiled her 90s-inspired childhood tree instead.
The 34 year old star joked she didn't "care" if her fans thought her creation was the "ugliest Christmas tree of all time", which she bought earlier this week, as it brought her and her five children endless joy and happiness.
Sort Your Life Out presenter Stacey posted an emotional caption as she explained how all the multicoloured lights, kitsch decorations and plastic ornaments and baubles instantly reminded her of her Christmases as a child.
She also said the reaction from her little ones, Rex, four, Rose, two, and Belle, who will celebrate her first birthday next year, was unmatched to any of her previous festive offerings.
As the mum-of-five, who is married to former EastEnders actor Joe Swash, showed off her wonderful new Christmas tree, she also managed to capture the youngest kids sat watching the twinkly glow from her living room floor.
The icing on the cake, was a special floating train track and train that she'd managed to balance mid-way down the branches.
"My Childhood Christmas Tree which will now be their childhood Christmas tree," Stacey began. "Honestly I don’t mind one bit if everyone thinks this is the ugliest Christmas tree of all time.
"I feel like I’ve gone back in time & my 90s Christmas childhood threw up on our tree. But seeing how much the pickles LOVE it has warmed my whole heart. My mum brought round her old Xmas lights a while ago & instantly I got the warmest happiest feeling of Christmas as a kid.
"I love a good colour scheme & a posh looking tree but as soon as I saw our childhood Xmas lights I couldn’t wait to bring my childhood memories of Christmas back to life on our tree this year."
The proud mum went on to say: "I’m not joking since I finished decorating it, they all pull pillows up to it & just stare at it. They’re mesmerised.
"Did anyone else have a tree like this? Tiny foil crackers, foil flower lights, chocolate presents? Random wooden ornaments.
"Happy Christmas 2023 everyone. Hope this makes you smile as much as it has us."
"P.S I don’t know how that train around the tree is defying gravity like that," the star added with a string of laughter emojis. "It’s giving 'mum definitely put that on wrong'."
Fans agreed with design and decorating guru Stacey, as they flocked to the comments to praise her for her efforts this year.
"This has bought all my childhood Christmas memories back, Thank you @staceysolomon. all you need now is the old fashioned ceiling Xmas decoration garlands xxx," one person wrote.
Another follower posted: "I really wanna do this one day! Brings back so much nostalgia"
"Giving me childhood 90s vibes!! Love love love and that train is so cool," a third fan gushed excitedly.
While a fourth person posted: "Awh it’s lovely Stacey memories from my childhood too," followed by: "I love it to much! This is my true Christmas love"
