HOW TO DECORATE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE

Decorate like a professional with our Christmas tree ideas and tips for every style, from contemporary winter wonderlands to fun novelty themes


Keep it classic

Nothing says Christmas quite like red and gold. Start by wrapping your tree in warm fairy lights to create a cosy feel. Give this traditional theme a contemporary twist by adding geometric ornaments in different shades of red. Tie it all together with red studded bow decorations and get ready to celebrate the festive season in style.

Top tip: When Christmas tree decorating, start by hanging the lights, whether you go for the more traditional horizontal round-and-around approach, or the expert-approved up-and-down method popularised on TikTok.



Go for gold with maximalism

Maximalists, rejoice: Christmas is the perfect time to think big. Pack your tree with personality by combining a vibrant colour palette – we’re loving blue, gold and purple – with quirky details. Finial baubles add extra interest. Go all out with standout ornaments, like golden animals, intricate leaves and glittering champagne bottles. Finish decorating your tree with some extra special pieces – you’ll find sequins, suede, pearl embellishment, and light-up baubles within our Christmas decoration range this year – to give your theme a final flourish.

Top tip: Not only does a tree skirt hide the legs of an artificial tree or the trunk of a real one, it can also be a continuation of your theme – whether you love maximalism or a serene winter wonderland.



Walk in a glamorous winter wonderland

Choosing a theme before you start decorating is a clever way to create a professional looking Christmas tree. Looking to create your own winter wonderland? Start with a snow-dusted tree and decorate with modern metallics: silver, granite and icy white. Add blush pink and black accents for a modern look with a touch of luxe. Playing with different textures is a great way to elevate your theme; try mixing glitter, glass and matte baubles. Take it one step further by sprinkling your tree with feathers and eye-catching ornaments in complementary colours for a festive showstopper.

Top tip: Before you start Christmas tree decorating, it’s worth spending some time fluffing your artificial Christmas tree, spreading the branches out one by one to make the tree look fuller.
