For a vibrant Christmas tree and festive decorating scheme for a contemporary home, how about opting for a rich plum?
This striking purple Christmas tree and coordinating decorations are all from Next and are a great starting point for a plum theme.
The six foot artificial Christmas tree is two tone and comes with a metal stand. It’s £60.
Many of the decorations are affordable, so won’t break the bank. For example, a set of 50 assorted shatterproof tree baubles in shades of lilac and purple costs £10.
The mini glitter trees, seen on the mantlepiece, come as a set of five and double up as name place card holders that you can use on a dining table. They’re only £6 for a set of five.
Various other purple themed decorations are available too, including the plum flock stags (£12 for 2).
