Go big or go home is our maximalist decorating manifesto at Christmas time. So really make an impact by starting at the entrance of your home. For most people, this would include an incredible door wreath, but we also recommend incorporating a few other touches too.

For your front door recommendations with a twist, check out our range of wreaths and garlands here. Then embellish your doorway with a fabulously inviting doormat such as the Black & Gold Welcome Doormat. If you have lots of space on your front porch we also recommend hanging a garland above your doorway with outdoor fairy lights. You could even go all about and place a small potted Christmas Tree next to your door with quirky Christmas tree decorations.

Decorate Your Bannisters

Decorating for Christmas doesn't have to stop in the hallway. Curate an ultra dazzling interior on your staircase that will wow guests and bring a delightful festive charm into your home this season!

A decorated bannister is super impactful and will make a stunning statement from the moment you walk into your home. Easy to do, wrap the Copper Cluster Light Chain around your bannister to bring a glorious glow into your space instantly. Then, accessorise! So, go to town with honeycomb balls in gold, grey, and brown and finish with some beautiful Faux Silver Fern Leaf Stem. You could even hang baubles and ornaments from your display too. Don't be afraid to go all out with your design, you will not regret it!

Spruce Up Your Fireplace

Our next tip for making sure your house is looking its best for Christmas is to transform your fireplace.

Traditionally we hang Christmas stockings on our fireplace, but we want you to take it a few steps further and make an incredible display. So, for example, fill your fireplace with stacked logs and start hanging some fabulous glitter paper stars to start with. It looks so lovely, but it's also a subtle twist that works for more minimalist Christmas styles. Please remember to never light your fire once decorated with all of your lovely adornments!

Then create a festive mantlepiece. Most importantly, candles are an absolute must for your Christmassy Mantlepiece. Layer scented candles to infuse the room with incredible smells and then create interest with varying candlestick heights. To add a sense of fun to your mantlepiece then mix up your candlestick holders - we always love a quirky candlestick holder to make people smile. Next, hang a garland from your mantlepiece. Our Black Glass Bauble Garland would be fantastic for this. Then, weave fairy lights across the top of your mantlepiece and finish with your pretty Christmas tree ornaments.

Christmas Tree Decorating

Start With The Fairy Lights

The most important step to Christmas Tree Decorating is to start with the fairy lights. First of all, plug the lights in and test them before you put them on your tree. There is nothing worse than wrapping your tree in fairy lights only to find that the lights don't work.

Once you're happy that they all work, wrap the tree lights up the trunk of your tree and then once you've fully decorated your tree decorate the branches with a second set for a spectacular effect.

Build The Centre

Next up, we recommend filling out the centre of your Christmas Tree. This could be with tinsel with mini colourful baubles. Display your baubles or tinsel closer to the centre of the tree to create a maximalist effect.

Now For The Best Part...Embellish Your Tree!


Now it's time to embellish with your most treasured Christmas Tree Decorations. We always recommend sticking to a theme here. Choosing a theme will help ground the look and help you plan your Christmas Tree decor in advance.

Finally, finish off your Christmas Tree Decoration with a fantastic tree topper. The top of your Christmas Tree can be as traditional or eccentric as you like. We love picking striking colours such as gold or silver to make an impact and add additional luminosity to the tree! So what are you waiting for?!
