Recruit Little Helpers
Decorating your home for Christmas can seem like a daunting task. To help you get the job done in half the time, recruit little helpers! From arranging Christmas tree decorations to baking Christmas cookies, kids of all ages will love getting involved in the seasonal set up. Just be sure to supervise your helpers while they decorate.
Take your Christmas tree to the next level by clustering your baubles. Adding depth and interest to your design, clustering Christmas tree decorations is a winning way to give your tree the wow factor.
This year, why not pair metallic, matte and glittery baubles together for an extra dose of festive flair?
Spread The Magic
Your Christmas tree may be the star of your Christmas decorations, but the rest of your home still needs to shine merry and bright! Bring the festivities into your dining area with Christmas tableware, candles and seasonal foliage.

1. Winter Wonderland
Dreaming of a white Christmas? A winter wonderland theme will have you covered, whether it snows or not! Creating a fresh festive feel with Scandi-inspired designs and contemporary silver and white colours, this theme is just the thing to transport you to the North Pole.
Accessorise your living room with textured grey Christmas cushions, faux fur throws and twinkling string Christmas lights for that soft and cosy Scandi vibe. All that’s left to do is grab a hot chocolate for an evening of rest and relaxation – if the kids will allow it!
2. Traditional Charm
Everybody loves a classic! Keep things traditional this Christmas with a festive red and white theme. Tick off timeless Christmas trends with snow-tipped Christmas trees, tartan Christmas bedding and bold red and green baubles. Complete the look with Fair Isle prints and knitted stockings for some iconic Christmas charm.
Don’t forget Christmas candles to fill your home with all your favourite festive fragrances. From apple and cinnamon to pine, scented candles will ensure your space is as Christmassy as it is cosy.
3. Good As Gold
Put the sparkle in Christmas with gold and blush décor. From rose gold baubles and gold-effect star toppers to flickering LED candles, these glitzy tones will treat your home to a show-stopping seasonal update.
Extra details like shimmering table runners and glittering Christmas crackers will ensure your space looks glamorous from start to finish.
Refresh your Christmas tree with novelty Christmas tree decorations, including character designs and classic Christmas motifs. Give Christmas tableware a colourful update with novelty glassware and patterned dinner sets. Packed full of playful festive cheer, vibrant décor is guaranteed to put a smile on little ones’ faces!
5. Keep It Natural
Fancy something a little more calming this Christmas? Take your decorations back to basics with natural décor. From wooden ornaments and pinecone door wreaths to dried foliage and berries, it doesn’t take much to create an Instagram-worthy display.
Remember, there’s still room for subtle sparkle! A glittery Christmas tree decoration is the perfect way to compliment this rustic theme in minimalistic style.
