Tying Your Christmas Decorations Together

When it comes to Christmas decorations, you’ll not be hard pressed to find ideas and supplies to turn your home into a festive wonderland. Indeed, it’s likely you will start to be bombarded with ideas a long time before you actually need them! Nevertheless, let’s have a look at how you can tie your decorations together well.

The Christmas bauble; it’s a staple ingredient of every winter wonderland. There are a variety of types of bauble and you may need to choose between them depending on the theme you want. A more traditional Christmas theme could incorporate the traditional red baubles for your tree, perfect and warming! On the other hand, you may feel that black and silver or black and gold baubles would fit better. These would go well with a more modern and classy theme, complemented by the flowing flute glasses of champagne of course.

With decorations it can be important to make the right matches. You wouldn’t want Susan from down the road thinking you just threw what you could find in a box around your home would you? Think of your theme, for whatever it is you should be consistent. Tinsel is the your flamboyant friend here to help tie the room together. So, if you’re going for a modern classy feel and you’ve chosen black and gold baubles, use gold and silver tinsels for your stair banisters or other places you can weave it! Just keep in mind, less is always more!

Glamour during the cold December days

One of the reasons we adore Christmas is because it brings some much-needed glamour and sparkle into our dull December lives. We may not see the sun for weeks at a time, but our homes become welcoming sanctuaries of colour and light, the perfect place to celebrate.
Choosing the right ornaments can be tricky, as very few people find themselves starting from scratch. So many of us have favourite baubles from childhood, or adorable home-made decorations we just can’t bear to throw away, no matter how tatty they get.

The trick is to upgrade your ornament collection with a selection of beautifully designed baubles in your favourite colour scheme, and for this, is your one-stop-shop for festive fulfilment.

By introducing some gorgeous new pieces, your tree can go from dull to delightful; the eye-catching centrepiece to your Christmas display.
Don’t restrict yourself to just dressing the tree, either; baubles look ultra-stylish displayed in vases and bowls, or suspended from mantelpieces and windows, where the light can catch them. This is a lovely way of taking your colour scheme right through the house.

Select your ornaments with care – classic Christmas colours such as green, red, copper and silver will never date. Make sure you love the design, and that they match your décor, and choose them for wearability too. Glass baubles are pretty but horribly fragile – the ‘synthetic but authentic’ ornaments from look just like glass, but are a fraction of the price and will last much longer. They are destined to become heirlooms of their own!
