Try these simple decorations for a splash of retro charm and colour this Christmas
A vintage-style Christmas stocking, bursting with treats, becomes a delightful decoration when combined with baubles and garlands made from wrapping paper in vibrant colours.
Don't forget to decorate your hallway - it's the first thing you see when you step through the front door. Adorn a sideboard with presents, baubles and festive flowers.
Create stylish extra seating by giving cheap junk-shop chairs a lick of coordinating colourful paint.
String up some fairy lights in the shape of a tree, then pile your wrapped presents underneath it.
To help avoid glasses getting mixed up during a party, give each guest a tag for their drink. Use buttons, baubles and bows for a cute, personalised touch.
Mix antique and vintage mismatched china for a truly eclectic display.
