This humble material is making a big splash in the market place. Due to the neutral palette of the material it is easy to pair it with different finishes to change the look to suit your taste. Adding golds or creams will give it a more polished look, while browns paired with wooden woodland creatures will turn your Christmas wonderland into a whimsical delight.

Frosted

After the success of Frozen the frosted theme is right on trend - it will give your decor that extra cheer while creating the perfect setting for the little ones’ imagination. Create this frosted setting with glass and frosted trims (don’t forget the polar bear and snowman ornaments!)

Let us be honest, Christmas has always had its fair share of shine but this year it is amped up with rhinestone style ornaments. Don’t be shy - this is the one time of the year you can go out and deck the halls with every shiny thing you like!

There are so many choices for decorations and it can all be a little overwhelming, however red and green has been a classic choice for Christmas and you can definitely not go wrong with this traditional theme.

No matter what you choose for your Christmas theme this year, remember to make the most of this time and share it with those special people in your life and have that extra helping of dessert (the New Year is for diet and exercise resolutions!)
