#1 When should I put up and take down my Christmas decorations?

Traditionally, your Christmas decorations should be put up on the fourth Sunday before Christmas. This means the 29th November this year. However, there’s no right or wrong answer and we won’t judge if you put them up earlier.

If you’re superstitious and want to avoid any bad luck, Christian tradition says that you should take down your decorations on the Twelfth Night (the last night of the 12 days of Christmas) which falls on January 5th 2021. However like the above it’s completely down to preference!

#2 What are the Christmas colours for 2020?

Along with the classic silver, gold and white colour palette of Christmas each year we’re also seeing the Pantone Colour of the Year being integrated into our Christmas decks this year – Classic Blue. Here are a few of our favourites.

#3 What are the Christmas decoration trends this year?

This year, Pinterest revealed that people have been searching for and saving Christmas decoration ideas earlier than ever before- which may have a little something to do with lockdown. With searches seeing a 147% year on year increase. From wall art to pop art inspired baubles, this year we’re adapting to the current climate and ensuring our homes are as festive as usual!

  • Wall Art Trees

A saviour for those who are looking to save space in their homes, the wall art tree sees us still able to utilise our favourite decorations but also fill those blank spaces with a Christmassy touch. If you’ve got enough space like @melaniejadedesign you can be doubly as festive with a tree as well.

  • Hanging Stars

Why restrict your star decorations to your Christmas tree? Transform your ceiling into the night sky with paper star decorations for a traditional take on your festive home decor.

  • Pop Art

Showing a little appreciation for the 50’s, this year we’ll be adding some pop art inspired decorations to our homes. Integrating our simple decorations with some bold and bright baubles for an edge to your Christmas decor.

#4 Can you recycle Christmas decorations?

Yes! All our Christmas decorations are made from premium materials which means they are designed to be used for years to come. Alternatively if you don’t want to keep your paper decorations these can be included in your weekly recycling.
