8 of the best red Christmas tree decorations

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

We’ve already looked at the top 10 silver and white Christmas tree decorations, so now it’s time to turn our attentions to the colour red.

Red is a very traditional Christmas colour, but there are plenty of modern and contemporary red Christmas tree deocrations out there for those who prefer to add a modern twist to their seasonal home decorating.

If you’re decorating your home with a red colour scheme this year, or simply want to add one or two additional red decorations to mix with other colours in your Christmas decoration collection, then here are 8 of the best red Christmas tree decorations.

1.Bombki Little Cooper Christmas tree decoration

We featured the Little London Christmas baubles by Bombki last year and they’re quirky and unusual. The Little Cooper bauble is handmade from blown glass and decorated with a Union Jack on its roof, to give it a patriotic feel.

The Bombki Little Cooper Christmas bauble comes in a wooden presentation box and costs £15 from Heal’s.

2. Red and white polka dot bauble

This shiny red Christmas tree bauble is decorated with glittery white polka dots, in Nordic style.

The polka dot bauble is £5 from Heal’s.

3. Red flock stripe bauble

Flocked bauble

The flock stripe design of this red bauble works really well, especially as the gold stripes and partially flocked design help break the design up, so it’s not all the same intense red colour.

The stripe flock bauble is available in a choice of two sizes – 6cm diameter and 8cm – and costs £2 and £3 each from John Lewis.

4. Red glass hanging bird Christmas tree decoration

For those that love birds (and we know only too well how popular the bird trend has been in home decorating), this red glass bird is ready to hang on your Christmas tree.

Part of the Rouge range at M&S, the bird has a mirror finish; it’s also part of their 3 for 2 offer, so you could save money when you buy Christmas decorations.

The glass bird tree decoration costs £5 from Marks and Spencer.

5. John Lewis pack of 50 red tree decorations

If you want to change your usual Christmas tree decorations, introduce a new decorating colour scheme this year or add to an existing collection, then this bumper pack of 50 red Christmas tree decorations is a good buy.

All the pieces coordinate and you get a good mix of shiny and matt red, star shaped decorations, round baubles and long red drops.

The set of 50 red tree decorations is £10 from John Lewis.

6. Gisela Graham glitter shoe hanging decoration

Reminscent of Dorothy’s red shoes in the Wizard of Oz, this glittery red shoe decoration is by Gisela Graham.

Available in a choice of red or white, the glitter shoe hanging decoration is £2.50 from Heal’s.

7. Set of three red hand carved soapstone decorations

These three red decorations, that come in a mixed set of a heart, star and Christmas tree design, or three of the same design, are admittedly not cheap. But they are rather nice and a bit unusual to hang on your tree.

Made from soapstone and painted with a block red colour, the decorations are finished off with hand carved snowflake motifs.

The set of three soap stone decorations cost £23 and are available from Fab and Funky.

8. Iconic chair Christmas tree decorations

Chair decorations, anyone?

For lovers of modern furniture and iconic chair designs, then you can now hang a mini version of your favourite designer chair on your Christmas tree. Available in a choice of two designs – the office chair on the left (complete with cushion) is reminscent of the famous egg chair and the chair on the right resembles the ball chair.

The iconic chair tree decorations are £7.99 each from The Contemporary Home.

Little London Christmas baubles

These aren’t just your average Christmas tree baubles. If you’re looking for something a bit different, then how about celebrating some iconic London landmarks and characters, with the help of these two Little London Christmas bauble sets?

Each of the baubles has been blown by mouth from glass and is hand decorated. They measure about 5cm by 4cm and come presented in a wooden box.

Available from Bombki on Not On The High Street, the first Little London bauble set has a London bus, telephone box, London taxi, London soldier and a little Big Ben.

The Little London 2 set includes a policeman, London Eye, post box, tube train and Canary Wharf (this one is our favourite). They’re not cheap at £30 per set, but they are quirky and unusual.

Bombki’s designs, which are overseen by Michael Peterson, have been picked up by Sir Paul Smith, Liberty, Fortnum and Mason and even Saint Paul’s Cathedral.

As well as London, they also produce many more distinctive iconic baubles, including Little New York and Little Paris.
