Millbrook's Christmas decoration themes for 2016
Filed under Christmas
Deck the halls with boughs of holly! And shiny pewter baubles and lovely wooden stars and… As you may have gathered, we’re already feeling very festive because Christmas has well and truly arrived at Millbrook!

As soon as Christmas 2015 was over, our buyers jetted off to the January shows to feast their eyes on the offerings by the very best Christmas brands and selected the most stunning items for updating your Christmas look for 2016. This year, they’ve created four key themes, with baubles, standalone decorations, lights, tinsel and ornaments to suit each one and they’re in store now, in all their festive glory.

Prepare to be inspired with our low-down on the themes, their key items and favourites from our team. 

  Theme 1: Nordic Glow

A fresh, crisp and modern style with bright, Scandinavian colours of red and white with a dash of orange. This fun theme will appeal to young and old alike!

‘I particularly like Nordic Glow,’ says Sam Bennett, Gift and Lifestyle Buyer, ‘because of the texture and feel of the felt, the clean lines, the standalone red and white colours and the simplicity of the theme. I love the Gonks which are also in our Mulled Wine theme – they’re fun – and the free-standing ornaments are gorgeous. The flash of orange (which we said would be key back in January!) really makes this theme feel fresh and new.’


Nordic Glow: Key items

Clip-on robins, £1.99 (Pictured left)

Orange berries on a string, £6.99

White enamelled stars, £9.99


  Theme 2: Winter Sage 

This frosty sparkling theme gives a gentle, slightly Georgian and decadent feel. Its elegant colours include white, silver, sage green and pale gold.

‘This is a stunning look which, for me, comes alive because of its dependence on incredible floristry,’ says Pam Garrard, Visual Merchandiser. ‘It’s very elegant, highly textured with lots of shimmer and a Georgian theme. It would bring joy to any home!’

  Winter Sage: Key items

Crystal flower head decorations, £5.99 (Pictured left)

Green frosted glass acorns set of 3, £3.99

Candlelight garland, £34.99


  Theme 3: Mulled Wine

Deep, muted warm tones, a textured look with feathers, cones and wooden elements. Colours include burgundy, pewter, copper and cream.

‘The ruggedness and the use of wood really appeals to me for this theme,’ says Pam Garrard, Visual Merchandiser. ‘Giant wooden stars are a perfect centrepiece and the beautiful lights that look like the old Edison lightbulbs fall down from the tree’s branches and add a modern twist. Pewter baubles mixed with burgundy look so sophisticated and the jewel colours are carried into our range of handbags and jewellery cases – gorgeous presents!’
  Mulled Wine: Key items

Wooden stars, £12.99 (Pictured left)

10 bulb retro light set, £34.99 (battery operated)

Gonks from £3.99
  Theme 4: Christmas Classics

Our traditional family theme incorporating Victorian surprises and a nostalgic feel is a real blast from the past! As for colours, look out for rich tones of red, gold, green and wool white.

'This theme offers a real feel-good vibe, with more than a nod to vintage style,' says Sam Bennett, Gift & Lifestyle Buyer. 'It features nostalgic surprises, traditional gift boxes and gorgeous teddy bears. I particularly like the garlands with big red berries because they add a natural look to the theme and a real punch of colour. Tinsel is also key and adds glitter and sparkle to the retro look.'
