The festive season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by transforming your home into a winter wonderland?

But if the task of hanging your own tinsel seems a bit daunting, and the idea of battling the Harrods crowds for this year’s MacKenzie-Childs festive décor fills you with chills,  maybe it’s time to consider the benefits of hiring a professional Christmas Decorator.

In this article, we want to talk you through the most important things to consider when choosing a seasonal stylist for yourself or your client.



  1. Bespoke and Custom Decorations

When it comes to decking the halls, one size certainly doesn’t fit all. Skilled Christmas Decorators can craft bespoke decorations that not only dazzle but also resonate with your personal style.

From handcrafted ornaments to custom-designed wreaths and garlands, these unique touches can make your festive décor truly one-of-a-kind.


Why go Bespoke?

Opting for bespoke decorations allows you to break free from the cookie-cutter mould of store-bought items. Whether it’s a personalised festive planter that incorporates florals already found in your garden, or a statement holly wrap that matches your dining room’s colour scheme, custom decorations add a layer of thoughtfulness and sophistication that off-the-shelf items simply can’t match.

Each Noble & Whyte project is a custom creation, meticulously tailored to reflect your vision. Find out more about what makes it a Noble & Whyte here.




  1. Indoor and Outdoor Service/Styling

Why limit the festive cheer to just your living room? A versatile Seasonal Stylist can extend the holiday spirit to every inch of your property, both indoors and outdoors.


Spaces that can be transformed:

Living Room

The heart of the home where families gather can be turned into a cosy, festive retreat. Consider adding a grand Christmas tree adorned with bespoke ornaments, twinkling fairy lights, and a custom tree skirt. A fireplace mantel can be decorated with garlands, stockings, and candles to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.


Dining Area

Create a magical setting for Christmas dinners and gatherings. A Seasonal Stylist can design a stunning centrepiece for your dining table, complete with candles, baubles, and seasonal foliage. Don’t forget to add a festive table runner and coordinated place settings to tie the whole look together.



Light up your outdoor spaces with weather-resistant decorations. Illuminate pathways with solar-powered lights, hang ice-white icicle lights shaped with precision to your trees, and consider adding floral wraps to outdoor pillars and foundations for an extremely opulent touch.


Entrance, Receptions and Hallways

Welcome guests with festive flair right from the doorstep. A wreath on the front door is a classic element, but you can go beyond that with garlands framing the doorway and lanterns lighting the path. Inside, consider adding festive runners in the hallways and small decorative touches like bowls of pinecones or ornaments on console tables. Seasonal planters filled with winter blooms can also add a truly unique feel.



Even private spaces can carry the holiday spirit, making the season feel special throughout the home. Think about adding a miniature Christmas tree to the children’s rooms coupled with bespoke nostalgic ornaments, or perhaps some subtle festive décor to the master bedroom.



Top Insights – The Full Package

A comprehensive styling service should include a consultation to understand your vision, followed by a site visit to assess the spaces that need decorating. This ensures that the stylist can create a harmonious flow between your indoor and outdoor spaces, making your property a unified canvas of festive joy. Book your initial consultation today to get started.



  1. Compatibility with Property Architecture and Style

Your home is an extension of yourself, and your Christmas decorations should be no different. A proficient Christmas Decorator will take into account the architecture, design, and style of your property to create a cohesive look.


The Importance of Cohesion

A stylist worth their salt will conduct a thorough assessment of your property’s architectural features, colour schemes, and existing décor.

This allows them to select or create decorations that not only fit the space but also elevate it. For instance, a home with classic Victorian architecture might benefit from traditional decorations with rich colours and intricate designs, while a modern loft could shine with minimalist, monochromatic décor.

Of course, we’re happy to accommodate personal preferences and bring your Christmas vision to life, but we try to guide our clients where possible to maximise the festive spectacle.



  1. Colour Scheme and Light Colour

Colours play a pivotal role in setting the mood for any occasion, and Christmas is no exception. While traditional red and green may be the go-to for many, a creative Seasonal Stylist can introduce a palette that complements your existing décor.

And let’s not forget lighting. Whether you prefer the crispness of ice white, the warmth of warm white, or the festivity of multi-colour, your stylist can guide you in making the best choice. For more on this, check out this guide on choosing the colour of your Christmas lights.




  1. Timing: When to Contact Your Chosen Provider

Custom decorations like garlands and centrepieces take time to create. Plus, the best stylists are often booked months in advance. So, if you have specific ideas or customisations in mind, it’s wise to reach out to your chosen provider as early as possible.

We’re already taking Christmas bookings, with our first install of the season rapidly approaching on the 1st of November. So, if you’re considering creating the visually spectacular on your property this Christmas, please get in touch now to avoid disappointment.



Choosing the right Christmas Decorator and Seasonal Stylist can make all the difference in how you and your loved ones experience the festive season. From bespoke decorations to property-compatible designs, a little professional help can go a long way in making your Christmas truly magical.
