Christmas home styling inspiration

Updated: Dec 15, 2023

This is part 1 of a series about Christmas home styling inspiration.

In parts 2 & 3 we are going to look at how to create a striking Christmas Day table & the perfect gift wrap but today’s post is all about baubles! Because not everyone has room for a Christmas Tree, I’ve compiled the following list of ways you can incorporate baubles into your tree required!

Christmas home styling inspiration using baubles

- Hang baubles over a table to add height and drama to your festive tablescape. I also added a Pine cone wreath to mine as I love the gorgeous greens and faux foliage which makes a real statement. Why not forage some festive foliage to give a more authentic look and all the festive fragrance that comes with real foliage? (Don't forget to look out for poisonous festive foliage if you do forage this winter!)

- Add baubles to a mantle (or shelf) garland for some extra sparkle. I love how the winter sun catches them in the daytime.

Consider embracing the blue Christmas trend with baubles

Add baubles to a twig Christmas tree for a rustic look.

- Add them to your festive tablescape, either on a garland down the centre or perhaps in a bowl with some fairy lights to really catch your guest’s attention.
