Best Christmas Decorating Ideas

Whatever your personal interiors style, if there’s one time of year that brings out the maximalist in all of us, it’s this one. The festive season is a time for celebration, for opening our homes to friends and family – and that spirit of warmth and sharing invites a sumptuousness that seeps into the very fabric of our homes.

All this, of course – from beautifully dressed tables sparkling with candlelight and glassware to festive ornaments and baubles that feel all the more special for only coming out once a year – is part of the fun. Whatever your style this festive season, Debenhams makes planning your celebration easy and fun.

Whether you’re adding to an existing collection of decorations and baubles or building a scheme from scratch, you’ll find everything you need at Debenhams, in-store and online. Browse by category – such as ‘An Enchanted World’ or ‘A Modern White Christmas’ to build a bespoke design – or mix and match for a more eclectic feel. Then simply pair with your choice of faux-tree, whether realistic pine or modern LED (main image, opposite) – there are ones to complement any setting. And it doesn’t stop there: everything from tablewear to tealights adds to the spirit of festive fun. ‘My Christmas glasswear is brilliant for festive dinner parties,’ notes designer Julien MacDonald. ‘The gold flute glasses exude elegance and are perfect for the all-important New Year’s Eve toast.’ Cheers to that.
