Have a very Berry Christmas

If you love a traditional Christmas with all the trimmings, this is the look for you. This artificial Christmas tree has pine cones and red berries in its branches - creating the look of a real fir tree without all the needle-dropping. Co-ordinate with deep green garlands and decorate with rich reds and shining silver.

Decorating dilemmas

How many baubles do you need for your tree?

As a guide, 80 baubles should cover a 6ft tree nicely, but it also comes down to personal taste. A minimalist approach can work well, as can a tree bursting with baubles! Start from the middle of the tree and work outwards to avoid knocking any baubles off, and mix different sizes and colours to add interest.

How many lights do you need for your tree?

Roughly speaking, we recommend about 5m of lights for every 2ft of tree - so about 15m of lights for a 6ft tree. Remember to measure how far the tree will be from the plug socket, and take that into account.

When should you put your tree up?

For some, the Christmas tree goes up at the start of advent, which this year is on 1st December. Others prefer to wait until the second week of December. For us, it's when you start to get that festive feeling!

When should you take your decorations down?

Traditionally you take your Christmas tree down 12 days after Christmas - also known as Twelfth Night. There's debate on if this falls on the 5th or 6th January, so it's really up to personal preference.
