How to decorate your Christmas tree, according to your star sign

Star Sign Banner

As the holiday season approaches, many of us are starting to think about decorating our homes and Christmas trees. If you’re looking for a unique way to decorate your tree this year, why not take a cue from your star sign?

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Energetic and inquisitive in nature, Aries are known for their love of adventure. Why not channel that energy into your Christmas tree and take inspiration from the perfectly groomed slopes of the Alps.

Pair baubles in cool shades of silver and snow white with bold blues to create dimension. Rather than dressing your tree with traditional tinsel, opt for strings of pearlescent white beading, and add glitter accents for a chic feel. We have everything you need to evoke the dreamy feel of the Alps with our Après Ski collection. Choose from ornaments in icy hues to snowy owl tree picks to complete the look.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Ambitious and determined, Taurus signs are known for their love of luxury and comfort, so go all out with your Christmas tree theme this year.

Opt for sophisticated gold, cream and champagne tones for a lavish setting. Fill any sparse branches with elegant filigree baubles and gold poinsettia picks to create an opulent tree that makes a statement. Look to our lavish Christmas in the City collection for more inspiration, featuring glitter hummingbird tree clips, beaded baubles and jewelled ornaments in warm tones.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Geminis are known for their quick wit and versatility. Their playful and curious nature makes our North Pole Friends collection the perfect theme for your tree.

Wrap your tree with white mesh ribbon and adorn your branches with red and white baubles for that festive feel. Once this is done you can fill in any gaps with decorative snowballs, before adding some of our adorable snowmen and gnome ornaments. Add playful touches with one of our snowball bucket fight decoration or our snowman hot chocolate mug bauble.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Known for their affectionate and nurturing nature, Cancer signs tend to be homebody’s. A warm and welcoming tree that gives you the ultimate cosy feel is a must for Cancers.

Warm toned hues and rustic accents are a must to nail that cosy feel. With carved wooden decorations and striking shades of copper, bronze and brown, our Cosy Corner collection will help you to transform your space into a comforting escape, perfect for cuddling up in on chilly days.

Add ornaments in the shape of gingerbread, lollipops, candy and cupcakes. And for the final touches, no candy cane themed tree is complete, without edible candy canes.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Known for their hardworking attitude and logical mindset, Virgos are often perfectionists, and that extends to their Christmas tree too.

For a flawless Christmas tree that looks practically perfect, opt for muted colours and floral accents, like our Floral Fancie collection. Go for shades of pretty pink and antique gold to create a timeless and charming tree. Use classic gold mesh ribbon or if you’re feeling bold a white feather boa, before adding delicate flower picks to any sparse areas to finish it off.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Libra signs are represented by the symbol of scales, they crave balance and like things when everything is in harmony. Luckily our Woodland Retreat collection has everything you need to create a truly harmonious Christmas tree.

Intense and mysterious, Scorpios are seen as the dark horses of astrology, so why not go for a dramatic, dark look with your Christmas tree this year?
