Christmas may be a few months away, but we’re already getting excited here at QVC! The countdown has officially begun and we can’t wait to get started with planning and decorations. This year, it’s all about relishing the joy in every moment, making your loved ones smile and creating a seasonal feast for the senses.
From traditional decor to natural minimalism, a winning festive display can come in myriad forms: you can truly get creative, and autumn is the perfect time to start thinking ahead and planning your theme, whether you’re completely revamping your decor or adding just a few pieces to liven things up.
Will you go for classic and traditional colours, or something sparkling and extravagant? Whatever your style, we’re here to help you set the scene. Step into our Christmas shop and take a peek at our gorgeous trends below for a little inspiration.
By the Fireplace
A timeless style, you can’t go wrong with our traditional collection, ‘By the Fireplace.’ It’s one of the most popular decorating styles and for good reason – past traditions and new ones combine to evoke a sense of joy and nostalgia. It’s bright and it’s fun, with classic reds and deep greens conjuring up the magical feeling of being a child again on Christmas morning – wide-eyed and wowed by all the ribbon-wrapped gifts…
Of course, the magic is in the details. Take, for example, this duo of pre-lit Gnome Dangly Legs. Plop them on a shelf or mantle and these characters will charm any guest with their bulbous noses and bushy white beards that light up from within.
From the living room to the dining table, special touches can be sprinkled everywhere. What could be merrier than raising a glass and toasting the holidays with this set of two festive insulated tumblers?
For another vintage throwback, how about a classic figurine? This traditional standing Santa is certainly dressed the part, complete with a sackful of presents and a light timer that keeps him glowing and ho-ho-ho-ing evening after evening.
If a traditional colour palette isn’t on your list this year, consider our serene yet glamorous trend, ‘Soft Elegance’. Inspired by light pinks and champagne mercury gold, this style offers an opportunity to step back from everyday routine and celebrate the embellishment of our homes with elevated, sophisticated brands like My Home Stories, Alison Cork and Home Reflections.
Speaking of new colours, we’re coveting this glitter snowy tree from Mr Christmas. Showcase it as a tabletop piece to dress up a room, or position it on a windowsill to sparkle through the night. The peachy pink design works wonderfully with the warm white lights, while the glittered detail creates that snow-capped look.
Few Christmas motifs are as magical as a nutcracker, and Festive’s traditional Nutcracker is no different (available on Advanced Order). Symbolising good luck and protection for your home, these decorative figurines hark back to late 17th century Germany, evoking centuries of wonderfully rich European tradition.
For a dose of glamour, we can always count on Home Reflections. This pre-lit LED mercury glass lamp will add instant pizzazz to your space.
This collection is sure to prove a favourite, particularly with guests! Full of dramatic colours, our ‘Festive Opulence’ trend combines decadent velvets with metallic glitters and heavy ornaments. Think rich and regal tones, reminiscent of a royal interior.
If you’re entertaining guests, what better way to create that guest-ready glow than with this set of three pre-lit glass angels from JM by Julien Macdonald? Keep an eye out on this one, also available on Advanced Order. Dainty in their small, medium and large sizes, this luminous trio will twinkle dreamily by the hearth or in a hallway. Of course, you could split them up, but they look so graceful together!
Take a look at this pre-lit indoor and outdoor willow tree from Santa’s Best. Sure to make a statement, this radiant faux willow tree stands tall with 800 colour-changing LED lights. It’s super-easy to assemble, with an included remote and timer. You can snap yours up now on Advanced Order!
Pre-lit decorations are in this year, as this set of three reindeer scene sparklers also proves! Courtesy of British brand Luxa, this ingenious design boasts an interior with a frost film, with thousands of tiny prisms that refract light to create the spellbinding look of sunlight on frost. The silhouettes of reindeers and fir trees stretch around the sparkler to form an impressive spectacle.
Keen to avoid the Christmas rush and the stress of preparations? Look no further than our ‘Healing Minimalism’ collection. Embodying nature in its palette, along with understated aesthetics, this trend strikes a harmonious chord with white lights, earthy greenery and the use of recycled materials.
What better place to start with than the tree? Make yours beautiful and fuss-free at the same time with K by Kelly Hoppen’s Kensington Fir Christmas tree. Easy to set up with memory wire branches and fairy lights, we love how calming and inviting it looks. And for a finishing touch, this hammered metal tree skirt pulls it all together. You can buy it now on Advanced Order and receive it by 26th September.
Once you’ve set up your tree, keep things rustic with this set of six Ultimate Christmas tree decorations. With glossy pinecones, seedheads and seedpods, they’ll make a wonderful addition, and you can snap them up now on Advanced Order and receive them by 10th October. It’s all about bringing the outdoors in and adding a little sparkle for good measure. Take a look at this set of six Berry Lead Christmas tree decorations (available on Advanced Order for delivery on 10th October). And any surface would be ripe for this set of three tabletop decorations.
