Who wants a regular Christmas garland when you can have a Christmas cactus garland!! I really do love the statement and effect that a banner can have when you’re decorating a room for a party or for Christmas, and if you love summer as much as winter then why not bring a little sunshine into your decor with our Christmas cactus garland! The cacti have been fully festivied (that is so not a word) with a gold star on top and plenty of tinsel!

This is super simple to make! To create your garland all you need to do is grab the free template here and print your cacti out onto white card. Next, cut them out and using a little craft glue, adhere them to a piece of string or yarn then hang it up somewhere with pride! We found that the garland looked most effective with the cacti spaced around 5cm apart.

THE BEST 30 TABLE DECOR IDEAS YOU’LL EVER SEE!

Plates

Last week our reader survey closed and hundreds of you got in touch to give us some feedback on the blog, I’ve been absolutely LOVING reading your ideas come in and me and Em are going to be going through them all properly today and sharing the results with you all at the end of this week! One thing you did keep asking for was more decor inspiration so while we get brainstorming some fresh ideas for you here’s 30 AWESOME ways that you can style up your tables…

1. Use contrasting patterns to make a bold statement!

I know, I know, it can be a little scary placing contrasting patterns together but look how awesome it can look?! As long as you don’t overdo it then patterns can really add an extra dimension to your decor! You can see a tutorial for these hand painted plates here but it doesn’t have to just be plates, you could layer patterns with the table cloth, napkins and even place settings!

2. Add colour with place mats

I feel like place mats are often overlooked these days but they really can look super beautiful against a white tablecloth! You can even download these gorgeous brushstroke place mats and print them out!

3. Use a little wood

I absolutely love how stylists took the rustic elements of wood and added a pop of colour to them in this styled shoot! By adding bright glittered card to the top or different colour wheels it really modernises the wooden look!

4. Add sparkle with disco balls!

You really can’t go wrong with a little sparkle and if you’re a fan of bling bling then disco balls are an epic way to style up your table! Plus you can get them in all sizes so you could even pop some giant ones around the venue! See the full shoot here! 

5. Fill old cans with flowers

If you want to keep the costs down then filling used cans with flowers is a great alternative to small vases! I love the Mexican style cans in this styled shoot but you can always take the labels off and spray paint the cans too!

6. Create a floating table runner with balloons

Balloons can sometimes get a bad rep but when done well they can really add a fun and elegant touch to your decor! Instead of placing a bunch in the middle of the table it looks so much better to have them running along the length of your table creating an almost floating table runner! Plus how beautiful are these palm frond balloons?!
