The smell of pine needles and the glow of warm Christmas lights… the festivities have officially arrived when the Christmas tree goes up.

A Christmas tree with Blue and White ornaments and baubles

At Wedgwood we embrace all the magic the holiday season has to offer. From the bustle of hosting and entertaining, to the quiet, reflective moments with those nearest and dearest. Decorating a Christmas tree is one of those magical moments that invites a feeling of nostalgia. And while it’s lovely to embrace the traditions of years gone by, it’s also wonderful to add a sprinkling of contemporary style and colour.

Let us help to inspire you this Christmas with Christmas tree decorating ideas from Wedgwood. Find out how to elevate your Christmas tree with colour schemes, beautiful décor and timeless treasures.

Decide on a Christmas tree colour scheme

Blue and white Christmas baubles

At Wedgwood we are known for our iconic blue and white jasper-inspired decorations, so of course we appreciate the importance of a traditional Christmas tree colour scheme. However, we also embrace creativity, bold colour and eclectism at Wedgwood.

Decorating your Christmas tree is the perfect way to show off your individual way, and let your personality shine through. Contemporary, classic or a mix of both – it’s up to you. Get inspired:

  • Red and green are classic Christmas tree decorating colours to style with, accented by metallic palettes of gold or silver. The new Wild Strawberry baubles compliment this style effortlessly.
  • Cool blue and white is suitable for the sleek and modern home, and draws inspiration from a blanket of white, crisp snow on Christmas morning. Mix the white and blue of a Wedgwood Christmas ornament with more contemporary pieces for a unique Christmas tree.
