This fun style for your Christmas decorations will bring great cheer to your home. Combine decorations inspired by traditional Scandinavian style gingerbread decorations with candy canes, kitsch hanging Santas, soft toys and plenty of sparkle.

You could also brighten up a bedroom by decorating a small pot-grown Christmas tree in this style and displaying on a shelf or chest of drawers.

This style of decorating is not about subtlety, rather it is about creating optimum joy. While it incorporates the classic colours of Christmas – greens, reds and browns – it is also license to have unbridled fun. Gingerbread men, elves and helicopters all hang comfortably alongside one another, surrounded by sparkling red berry clips and the twinkling of lights.

Gingerbread Style Bedroom

Gingerbread style decorations work perfectly as part of a festive bedroom arrangement. One of the most popular characters in Hillier Garden Centres every year is our festive gonks – soft Father Christmas figures in a range of sizes. A gonk or two on the shelf together with a very small tree would make a perfect bedroom display. Or, you could go to town and place them in their very own wooden sleigh!

Entertaining festive characters are at the heart of gingerbread-style decorating around the home, from larger characters to whimsical snowglobes or an express train around the bottom of your tree that seems to have come straight out of the Polar Express.
