CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS
WITH A DIFFERENCE

Try a fresh take on Christmas decorations with these easy-to-recreate ideas, from modern metallics to novelty baubles and cute animal ornaments with a winter wonderland feel

All that glitters…

This year, choose an opulent palette of rose gold and silver for a luxurious feel that nods to the glamour of the Art Deco era. Switch your usual spruce for a lit snow-tipped tree to create depth and texture that sparkling multi-faceted decorations will stand out against. Opt for baubles with glittery finishes and mirrored surfaces – the twinklier the better – and don’t forget the star of the show, a fabulously eye-catching tree topper. Plush texture complements the look: a faux-fur throw draped invitingly over the arm of a sofa, festive scented candles to create a relaxing ambience and an elegant garland to adorn the mantelpiece. For the final flourish, wrap presents in metallic paper for a showstopping reflective base under the tree.

Novelty Christmas baubles

Deck the halls with quirky decorations that are guaranteed to raise a smile in 2020 and beyond. From a glitter-encrusted astronaut and flying saucer that space-obsessed kids (and adults!) will love, through to travel- and wine-themed bauble sets, playful styles inject humour into an otherwise classic tree theme. Mix and match to create an eclectic effect that reflects your own unique personality, or the interests and hobbies of your household. Individual baubles also make great and inexpensive stocking fillers for friends and family, or Secret Santa gifts for hard-to-buy-for colleagues, striking just the right balance between humour and thoughtfulness. The best bit? When unpacking your bauble collection, you’ll be transported back to Christmases past, making the ritual of decorating with your family even more special.

Winter wonderland

Snow globes, adorable woodland animals and evergreen foliage are all you need to tap into childhood nostalgia at Christmas. Create a whimsical escape for your family during the darkest months with a decorating theme inspired by fairy-tale characters and forest creatures. Our pre-lit garlands are ideal for weaving around bannisters, whether you choose a touch of greenery via faux eucalyptus, red berries and pine cones, or opt for the subtle glow of LED fairy lights. An easy way to be more sustainable this Christmas is by counting down to the big day with a reusable advent calendar: simply tuck a wrapped sweet (or tiny gift) into each miniature stocking on this stylish design for a personalised ritual to repeat year after year. Finally, it simply wouldn’t be Christmas without the company of our festive friends: jolly robins, penguins and deer, so don’t scrimp on fun felt room decorations to fill your home with cheer.
