Planning on decorating already? Notonthehighstreet’s top seller reveal their tips for gorgeous Christmas décor 

Objet Dahlia’s top advice is, ‘when decorating your front door with a beautiful Christmas wreath, it’s often just your visitors who get to admire it most. We recommend hanging two seasonal wreaths on one length of ribbon and hang one either side of your door, so people can enjoy wreaths even more.’

Twenty-Seven’s tip is, ‘the Christmas Tree is the most important in the house for everyone to admire (inside and out). We always recommend spacing out the baubles, so your tree looks most balanced. Finish with simple, soft white fairy lights to let the decorations do all the talking.’ We love to select a few baubles and tie them to a napkin with a ribbon to create the most unique place settings for the Christmas Table.’
