In years gone by, how and when you decorated for Christmas was a contentious subject. On the one hand you had those who lamented Christmas getting earlier and earlier; on the other, you had people who couldn't wait to get into the spirit. Some saw decorations before 1st December as bad luck while others dismissed the naysayers as grouchy fun sponges.
It feels a bit different in 2021. After the shocker that has been the last two years (especially England's sudden December 2020 lockdown), celebrating however much you want and as early as you want no longer seems controversial. Perhaps you're making up for the lost time of 2020 or maybe you're just delighted to celebrate more intimately with your household once again. Either way, going all out is 100% on the cards.
Whether you're drawn to a 'classic' Christmas palette of golds, greens and reds, the more neutral, Scandi-inspired tones of jute and wood or you like your tree to be glitter-heavy or full-on kitsch, here's a selection of 35 baubles and decorations to help you get into the spirit (even if it is November).
