It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

How to decorate your Christmas tree

Whether you heave your tree out of the attic as soon as Halloween passes, or prefer to leave any sprucing until Christmas Eve, Yule just wouldn't be the same without this festive time old ritual.

Once you've chosen your Christmas tree, make sure to fluff out the branches properly before adding any fairy lights. Then you're ready to decorate!

The question is, what theme to go for? Whether you choose to stick with one colour or take a totally eclectic approach, we're here to inspire you with three equally festive themes from George.

red and white 

If ever there was a time of year to embrace the kitsch, it's Christmas. This classic red and white scheme has been given a fun update with retro ornaments like glittery toadstools, pink scarf-wearing pigs and fairy-light-strewn vans. Shop the collection here. Coordinate your giftwrap by choosing jolly red and green designs, like this tartan wrapping paper.

gold and white 

Those with a penchant for a bit of glitz will love this look. Mix gold and white super-sparkly decorations – think big beaded crowns, diamante angel wings (look out for an oh-so-glam chihuahua in a handbag ornament). Shop the look here. If you want your gifts to match, try this shimmering Gold Xmas Tree wrap.

silver and white 

For a more subtle Christmas decorating scheme, how about choosing a pretty silver and white palette? We love this mix of pale mint green baubles, large beaded ornaments and shimmering silver stars. Shop this look here – and grab some simple silver gift wrap while you're at it!
