Christmas tree decorations are back

Just like nativity scenes and festive lights illuminating the streets, there's nothing that marks the arrival of the festive season more than a Christmas tree. It's the perfect time for everyone to get together with friends and family, gather round for meals and copious amounts of food, and stay inside and shelter from the freezing weather outside.

What's more, you can transform every inch of your home into a winter wonderland by adorning your windows, doors and tablecloths with decorations. You can even decorate under the table too!

Nordic-style Christmas tree

They've become one of the most fashionable trends of the season, and IKEA is an expert, given our Nordic roots. Nordic Christmas tree decorations are usually minimalist, with a certain rustic flair. You can also adapt your table decorations and lighting to fit in with your Nordic-style Christmas tree.

Classics that never fade

  • Gold and silver are forever on trend at Christmas time. They're the traditional colours associated with the festive season and always make for a stylish-looking tree.

  • Red is Christmas in its purest form. It's Santa's favourite colour! So if you're opting for red-themed tree decorations this holiday, you're bound to be onto a winner. You can even coordinate them with the rest of your living room decorations.
  • Red and white is also a classic combination when it comes to Christmas tree decorations, remaining popular year after year. Go for classic Christmas baubles in both colours for a traditional look.

When less is more

Minimalism will definitely be featuring among 2019's collection of Christmas trees. It's all about not using too many decorations. All you need are some lights and a few ornaments, or even none at all, to decorate your minimalist Christmas tree.

Don't forget the presents
