There are a few things you need in your home to make it feel truly festive. It’s not just about a huge Christmas tree – there are other fantastic ways of decorating your house for Christmas.

Christmas candles

Candles can also be used throughout the house in the run-up to Christmas Day to create a warm festive feel.

Christmas flowers

Ivy, holly, roses
and ribbon can be used to create texture and interest. The reds and greens above match the colour of the table setting perfectly.

Christmas plants

These Calla lilies have been planted with greenery for a more neutral, snowy display that would match most colour schemes. While the mirrored planter adds a designer touch.

Christmas wreaths

The wreath above features all sorts of beautiful flowers in shades of pink, but there are also pink pine cones and purple baubles in keeping with any contemporary design scheme.
A more traditional wreath featuring roses, spruce, conifer leaves and pine cones would look great at the entrance to any traditionally-decorated home. The natural red and green theme should be carried on throughout the house.

Christmas hampers

The Taste of Christmas Hamper is brimming with festive treats. This hamper would look fantastic in any kitchen and we’re sure guests would love to get their hands on what’s inside too – including fudge, jam, crisps and, of course, a Christmas pudding.
