Tree style

5 cool looks for your Christmas tree - from OTT glamour to as pure as the driven snow

Every year, everyone chez Muddy gets to choose a new Christmas decoration for the tree. This is why (any Christmas-tree-dex-ologists out there, take note) we’ve got the complete history of Xmas tree dex from the 1970s to the present day contained in four huge boxes in our loft (all serious offers considered). Some years, we pile everything on but this year, we’re theming. We’ve narrowed it down to one of these five…

 

THE GLAM TREE

Peacock bauble £4.50, Dragonfly £5.75

We’re talking opulent here: rich jewelled colours, baubles and decorations made from handblown glass, copper, covered in velvet, sparkling with sequins and glitter. Good excuse to get a party dress to match.

 

THE WILD AT HEART TREE

Fox £6.50, Squirrel £6.25

Think berries, toadstools and all sorts of furry little creatures, from deers to hedgehogs. Maybe balance a few fir cones dusted with a bit of DIY glitter in amongst the branches too?

 

THE OH YES IT IS! TREE

Puss in Boots £8.75; Skating pig £11.50

The Muddies’ favourite. Fairy godmothers, ballerinas, nutcrackers, Puss in Boots or create your own Fantasy panto – an ice skating pig in a wig, anyone?

 

THE SUBTLE SCANDI TREE

Concertina paper decorations £4.25 (set of 2), Star £12.50

Corrugated concertina Christmas trees and baubles, lanterns, simple candles in muted colours – and you must have a big paper star (everyone in Sweden will).

 

THE PURE AS THE DRIVEN SNOW TREE

Skating rabbit £7.50, Clear bauble £3.76

Keep it simple – white lights, silver and clear glass baubles, strands of silvery tinsel and a few quirky little figurines. Love this skating rabbit.

 

SO WHAT’S YOUR TREE GOING TO BE WEARING?

Whatever look you’re going for, or if you need some inspiration, head over to the Kilver Court Christmas Room in the Great House at Kilver Court Designer Village to explore their brilliantly eclectic selection, including all of the decorations above. Open Mon-Sat 9.30am–5.30pm, Suns 10am–5pm – and for Late Night Shopping on Thurs 9 Nov and on Fri 1 Dec until 8pm. Bring the kids too – Father Christmas will be flying in throughout December. Coffee, cake and festive food every day!
