This post is for anyone desperately seeking a change to the traditional festive trimmings this Christmas. Maybe you’re over the Nordic look, or you want to mix the gold and silver up a bit with – I dunno – a strategically placed pineapple or flamingo. So, for alternative Christmas decoration ideas, read on.
Oliver Bonas is rocking it this year, with their range of Instagram-inspired decorations which include a cactus, pineapple and flamingo. And with prices starting from £6 per decoration, they’re not out of this world expensive.
There’s something fantastically kitsch about these decorations, which is a definite plus. If kitsch is wrong at Christmas then we don’t want to be right, quite frankly. Let your inner nan go wild with these other brilliantly retro alternative decorations we’ve found online…
