The festive season is fast approaching and it’s the perfect time to deck your home
ready for cosy night by the fire or evenings entertaining, but you needn’t spend a
fortune with Home Bargains’ incredible Christmas décor for 2018! Here are my top
tips for creating beautiful budget-friendly décor:
Combination of Baubles
Add a mixture of your favourite individual baubles and combine with multi-pack
baubles to create a full look on your tree. You can also add ribbon, bead garland or
glittery foliage to create further interest and depth.
Mix and Match Metallics
Bring together a mixture of silvers, golds, coppers and rose golds for an elegant
festive look – the more sparkle the better! Gold and silver pair perfectly together,
especially with white and you could add a colour such as blush pink, navy or red too.
Use Baubles and Bead Garlands
Re-purpose additional baubles by incorporating them in your décor. Add them to
table centrepieces by placing them around beaded garland, place them in a large
bowl on the table or even put them inside glass jars in different sizes to create a
Hang Decorations from Door Handles
Large hanging decorations aren’t just for the tree or wall, hook them on to door
handles or hang them from light pendants to create a Christmas inspired mobile. You
could even string a few of these dangling bauble decorations together on pretty
ribbon to create a window display.
Add Decorations to Stairs
Tie little decorations onto the stair posts or drape beaded garlands along the
banisters. This is especially effective if your stairs face your front door to create a
focal point as soon as you walk through the front door!
Stockings look magical hung over a fireplace, but you don’t have to stop there! Add
them to coat hooks or clip over radiators for extra places to hide little treats. These
stockings are made with two tones of sequins so you could even write a little
message on there!
Glitter words can make great statement piece, add them over a cooker hood, on a
mantelpiece or on a window ledge for quick and easy décor.
Set the Table
Use glittery place mats and festive detailed table linen to create a luxurious table
setting. Christmas is definitely the occasion to have special cutlery and tableware for
– these glittery knives and forks make the table feel instantly festive.
Line Up the Drinks
Create a drink station when entertaining guests to keep the drinks flowing; these
stunning crystal detailed wine glasses are sure to be a winner and these bauble
shaped glasses look great lined up full of festive cocktails!
Tie It Up With a Bow
Bring it all together by using large sparkly bows as curtain hold backs, on the back of
chairs or even at the top of the Christmas tree.
