Modern or Traditional Christmas Decorations This Year?

There are clearly two main ideas when it comes to Christmas décor. Some people like traditional Christmas decorations, as perhaps they prefer that old customs and practices are not be tinkered with. Then there are some people want to introduce a more modern style through use of unconventional Christmas ornaments and colour schemes, which are available in abundance these days in the shops.

Red and White Gift Boxes

There is not right or wrong answer when it comes to festive style and trimmings! It is all down to personal preference, and here at UK Christmas World we pride ourselves in the fact that we are able to cater to all tastes with our fantastic stock on our website!

In this blog we want to take a little look at the many kinds of Lights, Trees, Decorations and more on our website for both the traditionalists and modern lovers out there…


So, are you a true traditionalist when it comes to your Christmas décor? Do you still believe in using the customary red, green and gold colours and use ornaments, toys, baubles and tinsel to trim your tree?
If this is you, you’ll be glad to know you’re in the right place to find amazing, new traditional decorations this festive season…


Light up the outside of your house with some of our charming decorations in our Acrylic Displays range. Just like our friendly Trio of Snowmen Acrylics that are perfect for lighting up the inside or outside of your home. Lit internally with 60 LED lights they’re bound to be an attractive, eye-catching decoration in your festive display! And what would Christmas be without a snowman or three?!

Our Silhouettes & Motifs are also perfect for adding interest to outdoor walls and fences, like our Merry Christmas LED Rope Light. Another eye-catching decoration for your home, the multi coloured LEDs in this display are colour changing so instantly adds vibrancy to the outside of your home!

Now for the main feature in our homes at Christmas time, our Christmas Tree! Why not treat yourself to a brand new tree to match your traditional décor this year. How about our classic 6ft Needle Balsam Luxury Spruce Tree? This realistic looking tree comes with pine cones attached and is built onto a sturdy metal frame. A stunning tree ready for you to add your own traditional decorations to.

If you’re looking for traditional styled lights for your Christmas Tree why not take a look at our 480 Warm White Supabright LED Lights? These fantastic string lights emit a cosy, warm glow so are perfect for creating a classic look on your Christmas tree and for lighting up your baubles on decorations.
Or perhaps for a burst of colour, why not try our Victorian Lantern Lights? These will be an interesting alternative to standard fairy lights but will keep in with your traditional theme.

Tinsel is another classic addition we love to add to our trees during the festive season, and here at UK Christmas World we have a wide range to suit all styles and colour schemes!
We love our 2 metre, chunky cut tinsel available in a whole range of colours such as Gold and Red.

We have shapes, sizes, colours and designs to suit every taste and budget, and some wonderful options for a traditional style like yours, just like our Box of 9 Assorted Gold Baubles, adding a touch of shimmer to your festive display.
Or how about our Tray of 12 Red and White Swirl Baubles, perfect for a red and white candy land kind of theme! Matched with other red and white decorations and tinsel, with warm white lights as a backdrop this will be a fantastic traditional choice the whole family will enjoy.


We also love the sweet style of these Red Nordic Baubles. Pair with other red and white Tree Decorations for the perfect traditional display!

Add some traditional fun to the outside of your home with our fantastic range of Christmas Inflatables. No one adds magic to the festive season like Father Christmas himself! So why not try one of these stunning inflatables that the whole family will love! Here we have our Inflatable Santa’s Workshop and our Inflatable Christmas Elf, both lit internally so can be enjoyed throughout the night time too. All our inflatables come complete with support guy ropes and pegs so they will be safe and secure throughout the winter months!


Perhaps you decorate your home with more contemporary trimmings? People don’t shy of using their favourite colours for Christmas decorations, doing away with the conventional red and green. It is not rare to come across Christmas decorations that are blue, silver, pink, purple or even some black thrown in too!

There are homes that infuse an element of modernity right from the Christmas stockings to Christmas trees and everything in between! The same can go for Christmas lights too. There are hundreds of varieties, designs and colours to choose from, it is just a matter of letting your imagination go wild. The end result, though far from the accepted traditional Christmas decorations, can create a great impression.

Check out some of our modern Christmas lighting here. White LED lights are the perfect backdrop for a modern décor scheme, creating a fresh and bright atmosphere. So our 96 White Battery Powered String Lights will be an ideal item, whether it’s to place them on your Christmas tree or elsewhere around the home.
Or for placing on surfaces around the home e.g. table tops, shelves and window sills, our Copper Barrel Lights are great for adding a modern touch to any home. The copper colour is right on trend so perfect for updating any room of the house.


Another way of adding light to your home is by adding one of our lit displays to your home, just like our Wire Framed Reindeer and Sleigh Display. Lit with 280 warm white LED lights this will make an eye-catching decoration for any room of the home or outdoors in a sheltered area.

Or how about our Set of 3 Crackle Ball Lights, lit with cool white LEDs, which would make a fantastic centre piece for your dining table this festive season, but could be used all year round!


Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a wreath to hang from your door! We have lots of great choice even if you’re going for a modern décor scheme, just like our Copper Metal Wreath that has built in warm white LEDs. This would be perfect for brightening up any modern doorway.
Or if you want to go with something a little more rustic and wintry, our Luxury Champagne Gold Wreath is a great choice, decorated with gorgeous festive pine cones and glitter baubles.


Your Christmas Tree is another important aspect to modernise this year, since our tree is generally the focal point of our home during the festive season!

Here at UK Christmas World we have lots of great Christmas tree options that would suit your modern home and décor scheme, giving you the perfect backdrop for your contemporary lights, baubles and decorations.
One great option could be our 6ft Snowy Flocked Everlands Nobilis Fir Tree. The realistic, snowy needles of this tree instantly gives you a festive, wintry feel without the hassle of clearing up after a real tree! This one can be boxed away ready to use again for years to come!
Or how about our 2m Pencil Pine Tree, a slim line option making it perfect for smaller spaces, and the sleek shape makes it a lovely option for a modern display!

We have lots of great tree decorations that will add a glitzy, wintry feel to your front room such as our Tray of 12 Winter White Sequin Baubles to add some sparkle to your tree, or our Silver Bead Garland, a great modern alternative to tinsel!


If you’re wanting to explore a little more of a vibrant colour scheme on your modern Christmas tree, we have lots of packs of Baubles to choose from in all kinds of colours and designs. Why not try something like our Steel Blue or our Super Pink sets of baubles that include shiny, matt and glitter baubles as well as a star tree topper.

Or how about our Wild Rose Baubles, keeping right on trend with metallic shades, or our Purple and Blue Feather Baubles which are ideal if you’re feeling adventurous with colour this Christmas!

Add a touch of glitz to your tree décor with our gorgeous reindeer hanging decorations, perfect for modern vibes while still tying in some of the usual festive themes. We have Crystal Effect and an Iridescent Effect reindeers to choose from, both great for creating pretty reflections amongst your tree branches and lights.

Make sure you prepare for the big man in red arriving on Christmas Eve with lovely modern present sacks like our Snow Place Like Home Luxury Sack.
Or if stockings are more your scene, why not hang them from our beautiful Giant Merry Christmas Stocking Hanger that has 4 pegs so enough room for all the family’s stockings!

Make sure you countdown to the big day in style with our stunning range of Advent Calendar decorations, lots of which are perfect for your modern home, just like our White Advent Calendar House. It has built in warm white LED lights, making it a stunning addition to your décor especially at night time, and has 24 individual drawers that you can fill with your family’s favourite treats!
