While there are no right or wrong ways to decorate your Christmas tree, there a few cues we could all take from some of Instagram’s most fabulous Christmas trees. If you haven’t seen it yet, in our recent dispatch of Save, Spend, Splurge we broke down what makes a good Christmas and declared 2024 the year of the glamorous Christmas tree. Whether you’re going all out with traditional baubles, going straight to tinsel town, or keeping your tree monochromatic, there is no one-size-fits all when it comes to decorating your tree (and that’s the beauty of this tradition).
Classic Baubles and Velvet Ribbons
The theme for creator Jessie Bush’s Christmas tree in 2024 is more is more, as in she adds new decorations every year. However, more is more modus operandi can still be achieved through a balance of the classics with quirky non-traditional ornaments. Here, she marries classic baubles with velvet ribbons and funky mushroom and gherkin-themed objects.

If there is a time to go the extra mile with your decor choices, it is definitely around curating your Christmas tree. Star calligrapher Jo Eleanor is ushering a new era of modern heirlooms with these bespoke snowflake ornaments with calligraphy engraving.
Luxurious Floral Decorations by H&M Home
A Christmas tree with a luxurious aesthetic can easily be achieved with classic touches on a budget. You can’t go wrong with the classic red and gold colour palette with Christmas whites from H&M Home laced throughout.
Embrace Kitsch and Make it Cool
Christmas is also a great time to lean into your uncool side and go full kitsch. Like a cheesy holiday movie, this Christmas tree is full of unapologetically uncool kitsch decorations that are completely aware of their tacky style. Think of caricature of everyday items with added glitter like hard-boiled eggs, cheeseburgers, and Christmas bananas.
