Lazy but lovely Christmas decorations

Garlands are so versatile you can use them to decorate a room, table or tree. And the best thing is they’re quick and easy to put up as well as (most importantly) take down and stow away again.

As much as I love decorating my home for Christmas and getting excited about the festivities, I dread the day when it’s all over and I have to put all the decorations away again. This year, I’ve gone for a solution that makes decorating and tidying up quick and easy – garlands.

1. Paper

Paper garlands look like you’ve made them yourself – pretty dots of colour without having to get the scissors and paper out. Use paper garlands alone to create a minimalist look or combine them with gold or silver tree decorations or other garlands to make them look opulent and chic.

2. Stars

Stars are only really impressive in large groups. Garlands are a great way to achieve this. In red, gold or silver, they create a particularly elegant Christmas look. Equipped with LEDs, they’ll even light up when it gets dark, just like real stars.

3. Beads

Garlands made of beads are small but impressive. Their fragile shapes are usually made by hand, but not by you. Add bead garlands to a wreath, candle holder or Christmas tree to add a touch of Christmas magic.

Fragile yet flexible: garlands with beads add a special touch to small and large decorative objects.

4. Leaves

Around a fireplace or shelf, leaf garlands look beautiful with their natural shapes. As they never wilt, you can get them out any time, for example to add some festive spirit to your table arrangement.

5. Christmas

What would Christmas be without some classic motifs – candy canes, bells and bows, for instance. They’re available as ready-made Christmas garlands so you don’t need to arrange them individually. No matter which ones you choose or how you combine them, once the festive season’s over, you’ll have taken them down in no time at all.
