A Magical Millbrook Christmas: 2023 Themes

Whether you are looking to pick up some new ornaments or want a completely fresh look this Christmas, we have plenty of magical ideas at Millbrook. Our team have spent the last eight weeks building our displays, and the Christmas shop is now open and ready for you to enjoy! Here is a handy guide to our four main themes for 2023, with some easy tips on how to achieve them at home.

Après Ski

Rest your skis beneath the glistening icicles clinging to the eaves of a wooden lodge. Snuggle under cosy faux furs beside a crackling fire pit, as key theme colours white, pale blue and green play over the snowscape.

Get the look:

  • Cosy faux furs, blankets
  • Storm lanterns, frosted candles
  • Traditional sledges and skis
  • Natural wood, pinecones
  • Forest garlands
  • Woodland birds and animals

Key colours: frosty white, pale blue and green.

Champagne Christmas

Silver, warm white and gold bauble bubbles spill over the tree, fizzing with Champagne poinsettias. Mirrored trays reflect an elegant bar, bouncing light across glasses and crystal ice cubes right up to the stars.

Get the look:

  • Mirrored trays and cocktails glasses
  • Disco balls
  • Jewelled dragonflies
  • Glitter and sequin dipped flowers
  • Feather boas
  • Origami snowflakes

Key colours: silver, warm white and gold.

Santa’s Bakery

Cinnamon and peppermint scent the air of a festive kitchen, bright with red, white and pink. Trays piled high with gingerbread and candy canes tempt, while fantastical giant sweets appear by magic on the tree.

Get the look:

  • Gingerbread men, donut and iced biscuit ornaments
  • Candy canes
  • Gingerbread houses
  • Old fashioned sweet jars
  • Bows and gingham
  • Toy soldiers

Key colours: red, white and pink.

Home for Christmas

Beside a roaring fire, a traditional festive feast is set on a luxe tablescape of red, wine, green, gold and cream. The tree is heavy with garlands, berries and poinsettias and lit candles peek out from between the foliage.

Get the look: 

  • Elaborate garlands heavy with berries, colourful poinsettias and baubles
  • Ornate candlesticks
  • Luxury table settings
  • Traditional glass and painted baubles
  • Strings of metallic beads
  • Nutcracker ornaments

Key colours: red, wine, green, gold and cream.
