So as well as our strong obsession with eucalyptus for Christmas this year we will of course be mixing the foliage with other delights. Tis’ the season for all things gold this year, so it’s time to add some bling to your mantel.
We’ve rounded up 10 inspiring ways to decorate for Christmas the OWT way. They are easy to do and will look fabulous.
1. Naked Christmas Tree
This might sound a bit on the minimal side, but actually a naked Christmas tree looks every bit chic especially planted in a chunky basket or pot like this one… and placed ideally next to a blingingly festive bar cart:
2. Wreath Shelves
No matter how small your flat or home, this kind of décor can squeeze in anywhere. Hanging a wreath over shelves is such a simple yet stylish way of adding some festive green.
3. Gold Dipped Candles
Easy to do and will take a candlestick from minimal to luxe in no time. The best thing is, these aren’t just for Christmas. When the tree comes down we reckon these candles can stick around. Get it.
4. Put a ribbon on it
Pick a wow ribbon and add it to the top of your tree for a show stopping finishing touch. We love this monochrome stripe:
5. Bauble Filled Lanterns
This is such an easy idea but doesn’t it look great? Ideal for the doorstep, or your fireplace.
6. Little Touches
Don’t overlook the little things as they can go a long way. Add some gorgeous red berries to a vase, and your shelves will look oh so decorative.
7. Gold Accents
Once you’ve got the eucalyptus up then complement it with some deliciously gold accent accessories, like this stylish mantelpiece:
There’s no easier way to create a cozy luxe Christmas than with a bit of sheepskin. We love these chair rugs for a festive table:
9. Nutcracker Bell Jar
It ain’t Christmas without a nutcracker. But take this to next level and pop that Nutcracker in a bell jar. Inspired idea, courtesy of Emily Henderson.
10. Frosted Tablescape
Ok, we did find this gorgeous centre piece on a bridal website, but there’s no reason why it can’t be used for your Christmas table too. It’s a cotton bouquet that adds some festive snow to the table.
