So, have you decorated your home for Christmas yet? I haven’t but I’m planning to do so this weekend. And every Christmas I purchase something new for my tree and my decorations are a mixture of affordable and a bit on the expensive side. Whatever you choose here are some of my ideas on how to make your home look festive this season.
Christmas trees are the focus of your home decorations, so you must have a good one. Artificial or real? Traditional or alternative? The only thing I will say is that if you pick up an artificial tree invest in a good tree that will last you many Christmases. Wayfair.co.uk has a sale on some of their artificial trees, Naturalna 4ft Green Artificial Christmas Tree with Stand is £53.99 – Wayfair Christmas trees
Homebase sell real Christmas trees for all the pockets, Cut Fraser Fir Real Christmas Tree – 6-7ft caught my eye at the price of £45 – Homebase
If you are after a not so traditional tree Notonthehighstreet.com have good selection on alternative trees, how about this Pom Pom Christmas Tree by Chi Chi Moi for the price of £60? – Pom Pom tree
Now that you got your tree you’ll definitely need some decorations for it. Going to B&Q you will find Assorted Red Shatterproof Baubles, PACK OF 24 for only £3 – B&Q Baubles
If you want something more fancy head to Amara.com where Stripe/Dots Assorted Baubles, Set of 12 will cost you £24 – Amara Baubles, if you are after something with a personal touch head back to Notonthehighstreet.com where you can personalise your tree decorations from as little as £1.50 – Personalised tree decorations
In the lights department you have so many choices is basically up to you and your taste. I like them warm and the more the merrier, like these Tesco 300 Warm White LED Indoor Christmas Tree Fairy Lights for £24.99 – Tesco tree lights and how about 2000 multicolour led cluster string lights from B&Q for £80? – B&Q Lights
Now that we finished with the Christmas tree, lets look at our table. I love the Winter Palace collection by John Lewis that is inspired by an old Russian folktale. Have a look for yourselves and please tell me if you don’t like it.
- Winter Palace jacquard table cloth £35-£45 John Lewis tablecloth
- Winter Palace jacquard napkins £20 John Lewis napkins
- Winter Palace tableware £3-£45 John Lewis tableware
- Winter Palace table runner £35 John Lewis table runner
I also love White Company. I must do a blog about them as I think the quality vs. money is very good. I had to pick some table decorations from their collection to go with the John Lewis Winter Palace.
- Glass beaded placemats in silver, set of 2 for £38 Placemats
- Glass beaded coasters in silver, set of 4 for £16 Coasters
- Cedar Leaf Christmas Garland – Natural for the middle of your table £24 Garland
- Frill Top Mercury Tealight Holder – Silver £6 Tealight holder
- Snowflake Pendant Napkin Rings – Set Of 4 – Silver £20 Napkin Rings
Crackers? Go for budget from your local supermarket like Asda’s George Home Gold Luxury Crackers for £8 for 6 – Asda crackers or go all the way for the Fortnum & Mason Golden Wreath Crackers for 6 for £500 – Fortnum & Mason crackers
A candle to transport you into the Christmas spirit? Mercury Moonglow Candle, Mulled Wine from Anthropologie for £40.60 – Anthropologie candle or a Paperchase Spice Candle from ASOS for £12 Asos candle
I don’t know about you but I love a snow globe and if I could I would fill my home with them. I think Fortnum and Mason make some of the most beautiful snow globes out there and they are both affordable and expensive, depending on your pocket. Gift it or like me, keep it for yourself Christmas Tree Snow Globe for £45 or Flying Santa Snow Globe for £275 are both amazing. Fortnum&Mason Snow Globes
Lets not forget your door, you can adorn it with a Glitter LED Christmas Wreath from Matalan for £20 – Matalan Wreath, or a Natural Decorated Real Christmas Wreath from Homebase for £15 – Homebase wreath or spoil your door with a gorgeous Jingle Bell Wreath for £82.60 from Anthropologie.
So how about all these Christmas decorations? Let me know your thoughts, have a missed anything?
Hope you’ll have a Happy Christmas!
