Christmas Decoration Inspiration

We all love Christmas and our favourite part of the festive season is, you’ve guessed it, decorating! Whether you like to keep it clean and simple or go totally over the top (if you can’t at Christmas, when can you?!) we’ve got some ideas for you to make this year even more special:

 

Empty glass bottles of all shapes and sizes can avoid the recycling bin for just a little while longer by doubling up as beautifully simple candle holders for your table display. We love this idea of sprucing them up (pun intended, couldn’t help myself) by tying a little sprig of greenery around the base of the candle for a really festive feeling.

Even though there is not as much choice as in other seasons for natural decorations like flower arrangements, we certainly wouldn’t rule out the great outdoors for providing inspiration for at Christmas. Try using pine cones as place card holders around the table for a lovely rustic feel. You could even spray them gold to make it extra festive!

If the decorating is our favourite part of Christmas then the food comes a close second! Couldn’t resist sneaking in this yummy idea into this list. We can’t wait to try our hands at making these super easy rice krispie treats disguised as mini Christmas puddings. They look (almost) too good to eat!

Everyone knows that Christmas time is a particularly magical time for children and every family has their own special traditions for the younger members of the clan. It’s always nice to do something a bit different (maybe even start a new tradition!) so here’s a fun idea for laying the table for the little ones in your life.

And now for the grown-ups, because everyone deserves a treat (and if they don’t then “It’s Christmas!” is as good an excuse as any). We were particularly inspired by this impressive tree made from empty wine bottles. Now seems like as good a time as any to make a start on it…
