Christmas Decorations | High Street Picks

When it comes to getting ready for Christmas we’ve got a few rules in our house. No Christmas films until my birthday, no decorations until December and apparently no Home Alone until Christmas Eve (but I never stick to that one!). With that being said, our Secret Santa names were drawn near the end of October so I’ve started my gift shopping and this year I’ve been looking for another tree. When we changed our kitchen back in March we created an open plan room; another place for socialising or relaxing and so another place that needs a Christmas tree. An extra tree means more Christmas decorations and I've been searching the internet for my affordable Top Picks from the High Street.
The first place I started my search was Matalan. A lot of our current Christmas decorations are from there and I love looking at their selection every year. The decorations are always a good price but also good quality, nothing looks really cheap. I actually saw the Tinsel and Bauble Wreath in store last weekend and I don't know how I managed to walk away from it. They've got a few different colours but the silvers, pinks and glitters are perfect for my Winter Wonderland vibes.

Buying Disney decorations can be a little bit pricey. Primark has a good selection but if you can't get into store then you're not out of luck, thanks to Asda. This cute little Mickey Mouse Bauble is only £1.50 and quite a good size at 8cm tall. You can get a Minnie Mouse one to match too.

I'm a little bit ahead of the game with this Baby Boy First Christmas Bauble because our due date isn't actually until January but there's no surprise this Sass and Belle decoration caught my eye. Of course they've got a Baby Girl one too and one that's a little more gender neutral but hopefully I won't be needing one of these on my tree until 2020!

B and M have a huge selection of Christmas decorations. I've scouted out their website as well as searched in store twice already! It's a brilliant place to go if you don't want to spend much, maybe if you're starting out. I quite like a few wooden decorations around the house and I can imagine this Wooden Christmas Tree sitting on our sideboard or window sill.
When you're buying a Christmas tree for the first time or changing up your colour scheme completely then buying a pack of baubles is a good way to start. We've got quite a lot of baubles but I definitely have my eye on the 20 Pack Selection of Gold Baubles from Next as a starting point for our second tree. These look a good size and the colour selection is all things Jenna. I'm sure my husband won't mind a hint of pink.

We don't actually have any Christmas Stockings. We've got personalised sacks for our presents to go inside but we've never done a stocking for each other. We don't have any plans to change that this year but we'll be needing a stocking for Santa to fill next year and I love the Faux Fur Stocking from Marks and Spencers. I think it suits the cosiness of our living room.

As I said I'm buying a new Christmas tree this year but haven't found the right one yet. This 7 Foot Prelit Christmas Tree from Homebase is actually (pretty much) the one we've got for our living room. We bought our first Christmas tree 4 years ago and I absolutely love it. It's so quick to put up as it comes in 3 parts and it's so full looking. Being pre-lit is very convenient but I'm just not sure I can justify spending as much on a second tree.

We got our Personalised Christmas Eve Box last year for our first Christmas as a married couple. It makes a lovely little decoration sitting under the Christmas tree and it's a nice tradition to add to the excitement of Christmas Eve. As ours is a family box it's more likely to be stuffed with sweeties, hot chocolate and pyjamas rather than another excuse for presents like some Christmas Eve boxes seem to be.

The last decoration is something I nearly forgot about - a tree topper! This Paperchase Silver Star Tree Topper is quite simple but with all the glitter what more do you need?! I just can't figure out if this is actually big enough for a 6 or 7 foot tree?
