Our favourite festive centrepiece has to be the tree – and this year we’re going all out with the decorations (in line with our amped-up party plans). An obvious place to start is the lights, so make sure you have plenty (more is more in this case) before adding your decorations of choice – all hues, shapes and sizes are encouraged. From showstopping tree toppers to shiny baubles, you can’t go wrong. Our favourites? We love Marmor Paperie’s earth-conscious hand-marbled decorations. Or what about the adorable, handmade Buddy the Festive Dog from Felt So Good for an extra-special touch?

 

My tree may be small in stature, but it always brightens up my flat when it’s all lit up and festooned with the baubles I’ve collected over the years. I really love these baubles from Felt So Good for not-too-typical decorations – they’d make great gifts, too.

A cosy, festive ambience is non-negotiable at this time of year – and an easy way to achieve it? Candlelight (or a fireplace, if you’re lucky). From scented masterpieces (looking at you, Skandinavisk) that fill the room with heavenly fragrances to decorative candles (like these ones by Neom) that add a touch of artistic flair to your space, or simply a statement candleholder (thanks Anna + Nina) with some colourful candlesticks – no festive space is complete without a flicker of candlight. What’s left to do? Sit back (preferably under a blanket, glass of wine in hand) and soak it all in. Magic!

If there was ever a time to perfect the art of tablescaping, Christmas has to be it. How to achieve the perfect setting, you may ask? Start by carefully choosing the star of the show (aka the tablecloth) and topping it with vases full of festive bouquets and candles. We love this festive cloth by Lisa Corti – offering a kaleidoscope of bright colours, bold prints and clashing patterns. Next, choose your favourite plates, and follow them with napkins (these can match your tablecloth if you want to be extra fancy), cutlery, Christmas crackers and finally, wine glasses. Et voilà – you’re ready for a brilliant festive feast.

 

I find one of the most enjoyable parts of the festive season is preparing your home for Christmas. This year I’ll be investing in a few keep-sake decorations for the tree from some of our British-made brands and layering these with velvet ribbons and mouth-blown glass baubles for an overall rich, warm feel.

Though you may not think of Christmas cards and wrapped gifts as decorations per se, they can add a whole lot of festive pizazz to your space. From Caroline Gardner’s forest-friendly gift bags to these recyclable (and beautifully patterned) wrapping papers, bundle up your presents in style and pile them under the tree for a special touch in the lead-up to Christmas (it can also double as a fun gift-guessing game with your loved ones). And what to do with all the Christmas cards you get in the post? Add them to your mantlepiece or hang them along your doorframe (they can also be recycled and turned into next year’s gift tags after Christmas, too). Make sure you return the favour with our earth-conscious greeting cards – choose from some of our favourite designs to bring smiles all round.
