Christmas is fast approaching and with the pandemic still in full force, you’d be forgiven if picking out the perfect decorations wasn’t the top of your list so far – but luckily the stars have got us covered for inspo.
Whether you’re planning to have a low-key Christmas this year, or preparing to go all-out on the festive decor, there’s something out there for all budgets, tastes and colour schemes.
If you haven’t already, it’s time to haul the tree down from the loft and dust off the decorations – or pick up some last minute additions – and prep like the stars for the big day.
Self-proclaimed queen of Christmas Amanda Holden has always got her decorations up as early as possible, and her display for 2021 is better than ever.
Amanda chose a blue and gold colour scheme for her tree, with a striking sash and pampas grass topper.
The look is striking but easy to emulate with a swathe of silky material instead of tinsel to lift the golden decorations, and pampas grass can be picked up at most garden centres or florists to create your own topper just like hers.
Amanda carried on the Christmassy theme outside her home with an enormous door surround covered in baubles in shades of turquoise, blue and purple with peacock feathers in between and matching bauble wreaths on her doors.
While the outdoor decorations are a bit trickier to DIY, they’re certainly still possible with time, patience, a glue gun and several packs of leftover baubles and some faux foliage.

The former Love Island couple have turned their house into a classy Christmas grotto and it looks simply stunning.
The pair have incorporated four real Christmas trees dotted outside and on a front ledge of their property bedecked with lights, as well as a large matching wreath and fir trim.
While the outdoor decor fits their impressive property perfectly, this look can be adapted to any type of house.
Real Christmas trees are not just for indoors, and adding one outside with a matching wreath and warm white lights is a simple way of stealing their style.
The couple have also wrapped their indoor bannisters in fir and floral runners, as well as making their indoor tree unmissable by coating every inch of it in baubles and decorations for an opulent finished effect.
A white fuzzy tree skirt is also the perfect way to add style and to mask the legs of the tree to finish off the look. Giant nutcracker statue optional.
Tess Daly’s tree is a collection of family memories throughout the years, proving you don’t just have to stick to one colour.
Paired with multicoloured lights, Tess’s tree has everything from glittery unicorns to snakes and personalised baubles to mark milestones in the family’s lives.
This is the perfect type of tree if you want to be reminded of precious memories every time a decoration catches your eye, and one that will naturally evolve over years to come.
Chloe Ferry’s decorations prove less is more as the Geordie Shore star let a large red sash do the talking on her tree.
She paired it with red and white ornaments dotted around the real tree, with a large red bow to top it off.
Nutcrackers have made a big resurgence this year and Chloe popped one either side of her sweeping staircase to complete the look.
Britney’s maximalist tree is completed with a red velvet tree skirt and wide golden ribbons through the decorations.
The singer has woven natural themes throughout her decor, with pine cones and berries interspersed with the baubles.
To emulate Britney’s theme, opt for floral shaped decorations and sweeping oversized feathers to recreate the natural look.
Mariah Carey is the legitimate queen of Christmas (sorry Amanda), and her interior display this year certainly didn’t disappoint.
The diva superstar included ‘MC’ ornaments on her tree, which is easy to emulate for the whole family with initial decorations.
Mariah stuck to a one-colour theme in sparkling gold, even matching the family’s stockings in gold material on the fireplace too – keeping everything to one shade is the perfect way to have your own Carey Christmas at home.
