Top Tips for traditional Christmas decorations:
We have made a list and we are checking it twice…
For a traditional Christmas look, it’s not about the glitz and the glitter. It’s more about experimenting with bold colours, tartan patterns, different textures & real-life foliage like pine, maple, or holly leaves.
You can quite literally deck the halls with bells of holly! Not only will it look fabulous, but also brings in a natural winter sent into your household.
Velvet and tartan ribbons will look great both on the tree as well as along the mantelpiece or up your staircase.
Scan the charity shops and car boot sales for wooden soldier nutcrackers. Not only will they add a classic touch, but the kids will love them!
For a more traditional classic Christmas with a twist, we highly recommend mixing and matching our Scandinavian-style throw blankets with our vibrant and joyful scatter cushions. Their retro Christmas look will take you back in time to a Christmas gone past. Reminding you of drinking hot coco and watching a Charlie Brown special or my personal fave ‘A Muppets Christmas Carol’. Unbeatably soft, cozy & something you can’t wait to get out every year when jack frost comes calling.
Both our Christmas throws and pillowcases are available to purchase in ‘Bold Black’, ‘Cherry Red’ or ‘Elf Green’.
Fun Fact: Santa Claus has not always worn red.
Originally, you would find depictions of Old St Nick in a green or a brown robe before turning to that iconic red suit. Some people believe the change happened in the 1930s when Coca-Cola had the ingenious idea for an advertising campaign. Which has been regurgitated every year until now. However, it was i little earlier than this, when The cartoonist Thomas Nast sketched Santa Claus in a vivid red robe for an issue of Harper’s Weekly in 1863
