2020 will go down in history as one of the hardest and most talked-about years in our lifetime. Most of us have never experienced a pandemic, nor have ever been told to stay home, isolate and stay away from our friends and families. As the seasons have passed, we are still very much on high alert, the worry and fear are still present within our communities and our global and Australian borders are still not fully open for us to freely visit our loved ones afar, so what will Christmas 2020 look like?
Before we all fly off the handle in despair lets embrace how we can turn this frown upside down. Yes, Christmas 2020 is going to be a lot different. Sure maybe drinks at our neighbour’s this year might be cancelled, the highly anticipated Christmas staff party will be on zoom and our children’s kindergarten end of year concerts scrapped but we can still rejoice by appreciating the little things and keeping it so very simple and, of course, eco friendly.
Christmas in December is one month that everyone looks forward to and it remains to be the most beautiful time of the year. With only 36 days until Christmas, the COUNTDOWN has finally begun.
While we are mostly all at home and we have an immense amount of time on our hands to really plan our Christmas 2020, it might just be the most organised yet! Why not decorate the house from head to toe, start dog marking your Christmas pudding recipes, drafting your Christmas playlists, pre-order the seafood and the ham and above all top up on quality time with the family that you can see, they will be the most rewarding memories yet.
Happiness will be found in simple things and that goes hand in hand with buying your very own Christmas Tree and putting up your favourite decorations.
Why not make this Christmas eco friendly? One Two Tree offers you a Christmas tree which is handcrafted and made sustainably in Australia. Get a lovely wooden tree from https://onetwotree.com.au/ this December which will last you year after year and you can decorate any way you want.
If you were a fan of our Message Boards, have we got something for you— introducing our new Open/ Closed signs! As you all know, we’ve recently relocated to Precinct 75; and with our new studio now able to accomodate walk-in customers, we realised how necessary it was to have to have a sign that clearly stated whether or not we were open.
Our Open/ Closed Signs are designed with both convenience and style in mind. With the plaques carved with ‘Open’ and ‘Closed’ on either side, they can be easily flipped to display whichever word suits. It also comes with a optional woven rope, giving you the option to either hang the sign up on your storefront, or have it sit pretty on the counter of your business. Like all our other products, these signs are sustainable and lovingly handcrafted in Australia using only premium Australian hoop pine plywood.
In terms of style, we wanted to stick to our roots and keep it simple. We specifically designed our Open/ Closed signs with a minimalist aesthetic, so that it’ll be sure to fit in with any existing decor. Whether you’re running a cutesy artisan store, a tranquil yoga studio, or even a modern hairdressing salon, our Open/ Closed signs will be a superb display piece.
We’re also thinking of designing a ‘Back in 15’ sign, so if this is something that you’d be interested in, give us a shout— we’d love to hear from you!
Following the success of our Australian-shaped Treasure Board, we started receiving loads of requests from customers all over the world, pleading with us to create various Treasure Boards unique to their homeland. But amongst the heap of requests, one country especially stood out to us…
Well New Zealand, you asked and we listened— we’re proud to introduce the latest Treasure Board to our One Two Tree family, in none other than the shape of New Zealand! Aside from the fact that you guys were probably the most passionate in your pleas, it also felt right to expand our Treasure Board series with a country close to our hearts.
From its rugged coastlines to its glistening snow-capped mountains, we were inspired by how New Zealand was known and absolutely adored for its breathtaking sceneries and vast landscapes; and we wanted to encapsulate these striking physical features in our Treasure Board. Although it took a bit of tinkering around with the design to get completely perfect, we were finally able to recreate New Zealand’s unique shape by differentiating each of its three main islands!
Personally, I think that the most exciting stage about developing a new product is seeing the very many ways that our lovely customers choose to display our pieces around their homes. With endless options as to how to style and fill the shelves of our NZ Treasure Board, I can’t wait to get inspired by the creativity of each and every one you!
Height: 82cm. Width: 23cm. Shelf lengths from 9 to 14cm long. Depth of Shelf: 6cm. 9mm Australian Plywood— Natural Finish. Weight: 1kg. Arrives flat packed with assembly instructions and hardware.
