This year I’m planning a traditional colour scheme of red and green for my Christmas tree, but I’m looking for ornaments that mix up the styles and the Christmas Boutique have quite a range. I want a touch of Victorian Christmas as well as some up to the minute glittering decorations. These glittery reindeer tree decorations are just the thing I’m looking for. Their prancing poses lend a touch of live to a tree and the light reflects off their glittery bodies. For best effect I recommend putting these where your Christmas lights can play off them or your open fire if you have one.
For the traditional Victorian, Dickensian look I’ve got my eye on this rather special selection of tree decorations. This set of hanging tree decorations features a rocking horse complete with his own red saddle, a wrapped present with a bow, a Christmas tree and a Christmas stocking. All the designs have a weighty, well made feel to them and I love the fact that each one hangs from a red ribbon loop that is threaded through a metal hook at the top. Again all the designs feature my red and green colour scheme, which sits really well with their traditional style.
Red hearts create a homely Christmassy feel and bring a splash of colour to your tree. I’m loving this hanging heart decoration with its lovely frosted berry decoration. This is a really versatile piece because it would look equally at home on your tree or hanging on your fireplace. For smaller heart details and flashes of red colour there are these attractive heart baubles. They are a really dinky size and would be perfect either on a small tree or used in bulk to create a magical effect on a larger one.
Of course, it’s not all about the tree. Other decorations are just as important as part of creating your overall look. Reusable advent calendars can become a key family tradition (we have a couple that have). This is a nice one with big pockets so that you can easily slot in a small toy or other treat. I’m thinking H would like his filled with Skylanders, Lego and chocolate. A great way to organise presents is to pop them in a Christmas sack. This pair of Christmas sacks are just the thing with their cheerful Christmas tree and santa designs.
