Christmas Sprinkles

Christmas Sprinkles with Santa Nutcracker Standing

For anyone who loves decorating for Christmas with beautiful pastels and a touch of whimsy, you’re sure to love our latest collection, appropriately (and affectionately!) named Christmas Sprinkles.

Inspired by the fun and colour of lolly sprinkles, or 100’s and 1000’s as we called them growing up, the Christmas Sprinkles collection features lots of fun and playful decorations, pretty florals and stunning pink flocked floral bases.

As we were putting this collection together, it occurred to us how adaptable it is for so many other celebrations, so in addition to inspiring your Christmas decorating, we’ll also show you how quickly and easily we transformed the space to perfectly decorate for a children’s birthday party.

So, let’s dive in and explore how you can add a touch of sweetness to your Christmas decor this year!

Or you can head straight to the Christmas Sprinkles Collection page on our website and get busy filling your cart with goodies!


A Christmas Sprinkles Tree

First up, let’s talk about decorating the gorgeous Christmas Sprinkles tree. 

The tree is normally the focus in our homes as we decorate for Christmas and where we like to make a statement, so we have gone all out with our tree for the Christmas Sprinkles collection. 

We recommend you start with a white or pastel pink Christmas tree and create a fun tree topper.  Here we’ve used some oversized lollipops and a sweet snowflake and we surrounded them with these white curly sprays to add texture and glitter to the top of the tree.

We then started to bring in some soft texture through the tree with loops of white wired velvet ribbon.  

The tree decorations we have used include oversized lollies that coordinate with the tree topper and lots of fun baubles including sprinkled ones, glittery ones, and pink and blue iridescent baubles that remind me of bubbles.

In between, we have lots more sugar-inspired sweetness!! These favourite Christmas characters in cupcakes are so cute…

…as well as scrumptious-looking cake slices, cupcakes, donuts, lollipops, and ice-cream sundaes all decorated with colourful sprinkles.

For our personalised baubles, we’ve chosen our baby blue and baby pink 10cm personalised shatterproof baubles, perfect if there are little fingers around.  We love the softness of personalisation in silver glitter, but the boldness and contrast of the blue and pink are great too. For something extra special, you could opt for our rainbow glitter! 

Between all the baubles and decorations we have added some of our favourite new products for this year.  How gorgeous are these flowers?! It’s a good thing we don’t have to choose a favourite. We are loving the sprinkled ones, the white trimmed ones, and the glittery ones.

Our final touch to really add even more dimension, texture and fun to the Christmas Sprinkles tree are a selection colourful pastel spiral ball picks, spiral ribbon picks, gorgeous glitter leaf sprays,  and some pretty polka dots bows.

Don’t forget that decorating the tree extends further than the tree itself.

Complete your Christmas Sprinkles tree display with a lush white fur tree skirt and then add co-ordinated personalised gift boxes or suitcases, and of course, stunning pale pink personalised Santa sacks to finish it off just right.

A Sweet Sprinkle of Christmas on the Table…and beyond!

Next, let’s move on to the table. 

Whether you’re hosting a Christmas event or just want to add a little extra festivity to your dining room, we’ve got you covered. 

For this table, we kept it casual and let the neutral wood show through, but if you have a dark table or a table you want to protect, a white or pastel tablecloth would work well. 

We then laid this pastel plaid table runner down the centre of the table and created our own simple and playful centrepiece with a collection of ornaments including this beautiful Santa, yummy nutcrackers, pink and mint table top trees and some gifts boxes and baubles to pull it all together.

Each table setting has a pastel charger which we alternated around the table, so we could lean into our colourful Christmas Sprinkles style, and then topped each setting with a fun bon bon, again in the pastel colours. Make your guests feel extra special (and guide them to there seat!) with personalised laser cut name tags. Not only are they are beautiful placeholder, but a lovely personalised gift for your guests to treasure too.

One of my favourite parts of decorating this room for our Christmas Sprinkles collection was creating a super fun candy bar on the console table nearby.  At the top, you can see we have a beautiful garland that started with a pink flocked base and then was layered with sprinkled and curly sprays.

We then added some flowers and a big mint velvet bow in the centre.

Elements of our table centrepiece are carried over to the top of the candy bar but the highlights would have to be the yummy faux cake ornaments and the gorgeous pastel nutcrackers. There are so many combinations and ways to style all of the pieces on your candy bar console to make it truly unique. And don’t forget the generously filled lolly jars!

Our FREE Christmas Sprinkles Poster Download is the perfect way to fill the space between the garland and the console. It’s also a delightful way to “sprinkle Christmas cheer” throughout your home! Simply print, frame, and put in place. It’s a super simple way to add instant impact to your Christmas decorating.

Christmas Sprinkles on the Mantle

Finally, let’s take a look at how you can incorporate the Christmas Sprinkles collection when decorating a mantle, buffet or console table.

To continue with our consistent theming, we started with a pink flocked wreath and garland as the bases for this area. We decorated the wreath with some of the flowers, baubles, sprays and ribbons featured in the tree, and added a gorgeous personalised plaque to the centre. 

To add more colour and texture we layered the pink flocked garland with a white pine garland and a beautiful pink sequinned leaf garland,  We then added the same sprinkled flowers to coordinate with the wreath, tree, and garland over the candy bar, and some pretty leaf sprays and fun curly sprays.

On each side of the wreath, we have added some table top trees, including our DIY Craft project for this collection, a trio of chunky wool cone trees, as well as a gorgeous macaroon tree.

Go to Make and Create: Christmas Sprinkles Cone Trees to see how we made them.

Of course, a Christmas mantle would not be complete without some personalised Christmas stockings.  There are lots of beautiful ways to combine and style your stockings on the mantle. Choose from the white fur stockings or retro pink peppermint stockings and hang them on simple chrome stocking hangers or chrome reindeer and tree stocking hangers.

Elevate the plain chrome stocking holders by placing a cute nutcracker ornament on top.

From Christmas Sprinkles to a Sweet Birthday Party

As promised, let’s have a quick look at how with a few swaps, we can use the Christmas Sprinkles collection as a base to decorate for a children’s birthday party.

Now if your party is close to Christmas you may not want to change a thing. But you can see how swapping to plain personalised bon bons (available from our sister company, Gifts & Keepsakes), which makes the perfect party favour, and adding a party hat to each setting immediately changes the vibe. 

Then swap out Santa, the nutcrackers, and the Christmas trees with some pastel honeycomb balls, and add a balloon garland or other hanging decorations to the lolly bar and you are all set for a celebration of a different kind.
