Putting up your Christmas tree and decorating your home is all about creating a joyful and uplifting festive space that will get you in the holiday spirit. With that in mind, ditch the strict interior design advice and opt for personal ornaments and playful colour schemes which make you feel at home. From luxury stockings to handcrafted baubles, here’s our edit of wonderful Christmas decorations guaranteed to spruce up any living space (or even double up as thoughtful gifts).
Christmas Wreaths and Garlands
Deck your front door with a blooming Christmas wreath and intertwine your banister with a pine-green garland to bring a touch of tradition to your festive home. While many attempt to make their own from foraged goods, sometimes it’s just as good to leave it to the experts. Whatever your Christmas colour scheme may be this year – whether that’s glamorous white and silver, traditional green and red, or lavish purples and blues – we’ve found the perfect wreath and garland to match.
Christmas Baubles and Tree Decorations
It’s time to grab the Christmas boxes from the attic and start thinking about decorating the tree – a wholesome experience for families and couples, young and old. If your decorations are looking a little lacklustre, allow us to help you spruce up your baubles and hanging ornaments with an extra dash of festive flair.
Christmas Table Decorations
From subtle, berry-toned tablecloths to all-out decoration sets, here are some easy ways to wow Christmas dinner guests with your tablescaping skills. The state of the table can sometimes be the last thing on your mind when you’re busy basting turkey and topping up the Champagne fridge. Pro tip: lay it the night before so you don’t have anything to worry about on the big day itself.
Think Christmas crackers can’t be chic? Think again. Upgrade this dinner table staple with a selection of thoughtfully-designed crackers. What once was a slap-dash add-on to the table is now big business, with many designers collaborating to create crackers with lavish gifts that you’ll actually want to keep.
Whether you hang them on the fireplace or bedposts, festive stockings only come out once a year so it’s the perfect time to make a statement. Although they’re steeped in tradition, stockings don’t have to be boring. Why not play around with colours and textures when choosing your own? It could be a treasured decoration for years to come.
