Are you itching to put up your Christmas decorations? Us too. The darker, colder nights have arrived and we're ready to be surrounded by twinkling lights, a roaring fire and have a hot chocolate in hand at all times. With an array of decorations, ornaments, Christmas candles and baubles on offer at The Hut, you can create the festive atmosphere you've been craving. So, for when the 'right' time to put your decorations up is, to the official Christmas colours this year, here's everything you need to know.

#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 28th 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 2022. However like the above it's completely down to preference!

#2 What are the Christmas colours for 2021?

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 - Ultimate Gray. Here are a few of our favourites.

#3 What are the Christmas decoration trends this year?

Lat year, Pinterest revealed that people have been searching for and saving Christmas decoration ideas earlier than ever before - with  searches seeing a 147% year on year increase.

Here's what we're currently loving.

  • All about the lighting

This Christmas, lighting is key. We can't get enough of Broste Copenhagen's beautiful advent candles, in fact, we can't get enough of anything from Broste Copenhagen! It's just too good.

  • Hanging Stars

  • Quirky Decor

This year we’ll be adding some unexpected 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.
