This Christmas, the garden centre has come up with five brand new decorative themes, giving customers fresh inspiration for how they can enjoy the most wonderful time of the year. From a traditional heartfelt Christmas in A Festive Tale; an elegant celebration of rich tones with a modern twist in Classic Noel; a natural blend of beautiful outdoors and cosy interiors in Magical Woodland; to Snow & Sparkles, which takes inspiration from snowy landscapes and frosty tones; and a stunning celebration of joyful colour and fun in Colour Pop, the choices really are endless.

Speaking of new topics, Anna Service, Christmas Buyer at Dobbies Garden Centres, commented:

“This Christmas, our themes are here to inspire you to embrace the joy of the holiday season, with collections that will bring back memories of Christmases past and get you excited for this year’s celebrations. Whether you want to add a touch of joy with classic Christmas characters, give traditional décor a modern twist, or embrace the beauty and wonder of nature with naturally harvested natural elements, we have something for every style.

“A Festive Tale and Classic Noel” are displays of traditional Dobbies holiday decorations with a unique twist to suit a variety of interior styles.

“Promoting garden life is important to Dobbies and our Magical Woodland theme highlights this. It combines natural elements with warm tones to bring the outdoors inside, while maintaining an overall warm feel.

“My favourite this year is Snow & Sparkles, which takes the popular frosty look and gives it an eye-catching twist with pops of peach and lavender.

“And if you love colourful, eye-catching interiors, our maximalist Colour Pop theme lets you bypass tradition and decorate your home with a festive kaleidoscope of colour that’s sure to bring joy.

“While the Christmas tree remains the cornerstone of the celebrations, this year we have expanded our offering to include high-value decorations for different areas of the home and spaces of all sizes. Doorways, dining rooms, hallways and patios are all showcased, with alternative decorating ideas that will allow people to spread holiday cheer throughout their home and garden.”

Trends revealed

Christmas Story

A theme that puts cherished family moments at the center of the celebration, A Festive Tale is a traditional, joyful theme, with a nod to Scandinavian simplicity, while introducing a modern update. Lush green foliage and a sophisticated color palette of reds, greens and neutrals set the tone for a theme full of heart and classic holiday moments. Holly and ivy on the mantelpiece, hot chocolate and mince pies, and loved ones gathered around the fire are the inspiration for this happy and heartwarming theme.

Classic Noel

An updated version of the classic Christmas we all know and love, Classic Noel combines rich shades of red, plum and purple with modern grey for a contemporary touch. Jewelled baubles and sequinned decorations add a lavish touch to this elegant look, evoking festive memories of decorating the tree, while the warm scents of cinnamon and cranberries fill the air.

Magic Forest

Inspired by the enchanting time when autumn meets winter, Magical Woodland embraces the beauty of nature and cosy moments spent by the fire. Organic, earthy tones are given a natural warmth by shades of apricot and dusty pink, enhanced by luxurious velvets and faux fur. Outside, the winter garden allows for festive foraging, encouraging people to gather mushrooms and winter flowers to enhance their whimsical woodland scene.

Snow and sparkles

A dreamy theme filled with twinkling stars and snowy landscapes, Snow & Sparkles combines fantasy and glamour for a theme that is as stunning as it is magical. The North and the blue sky stand to the side shades of peach and lavender that give this cool motif a delicate touch. Silver, white and iridescent shades create a snowy effect, and shiny beads and sequins give the motif a frosty look and feel.

Color Pop (main image)

A multi-colour theme that embraces the joyful spirit of the season, Colour Pop is a fusion of maximalism and joy, with a dash of fun, festive moments in between. Bold and vibrant rainbow hues combine to create a party-ready look that will lift any space and inject colourful joy. Think retro multi-coloured lights, contemporary hanging decorations and novelty baubles for a Christmas full of character and style. Colour Pop will be available in a limited number of Dobbies stores across the UK.
