How to Pull off a Scandi Christmas Theme, plus Win Some of it for your Place!

Scandi Christmas decorations have long been on my lust list, and this year I plan on going all out. With a little help from my friends at The Christmas Cart, you can too!

With a name like Chris Carroll, it’s lucky I like the silly season. As you can imagine, I got called Christmas Carroll a lot growing up (amongst other things) and thankfully the title didn’t bother me one bit. I’m totally and utterly obsessed with Christmas, and festive decorating is clearly the reason behind it.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s lovely to catch up with friends and family. It’s great to put on 10 kilos across three days. And it’s so good to look back on the year that was. But before all that happens, the decorating takes place. And that’s where the joy and rapture really occurs.

In year’s gone by I’ve gone with a blue and silver theme. But this year, depending on how settled in I am (I’m moving house December 20!), I want to change things up entirely. And that whole neutral Nordic vibe has been my favourite for a really long time.

So today I thought I’d share some Scandi Christmas style with you. And here’s the even better news: I’m also throwing in an amazing competition where you can win a $300 voucher from The Christmas Cart. Scroll to the end of the post to enter. But first, let me tell you how easy it is to style up Scandi Christmas decorations at your place!

A Stunning Scandi Theme starts with Colour

And the colour for a Scandi theme is so wonderfully simple and pared-back. Think white, green, black and grey. If you stick to that colour palette you can’t go wrong.

Now, it’s important to note that white and deep green would be the strongest colours. The ones you use the most. You can introduce a little black and grey, but don’t take these too far or else it can start to feel too high-contrast. We’re trying to create a soothing, easy-on-the-eye feel, after all.

The good thing about this festive Scandi colour palette is the ease at which it’ll work at your place. I have always been of the thinking that your tree should match in with your home’s existing theme. Now, because the colours here are so neutral, it means it’ll work in a Scandinavian style home, Boho house, Hamptons pad, you name it.

The other key ingredient here is the soft beige tone you see in the tree skirt above and the calico sacks below. Both are available at The Christmas Cart. The colours in these pieces are essential in adding warmth to the scheme. And seriously… don’t they look incredible? I love the natural, organic feel they bring to the setting. Very Scandi, very Hygge!

Personalisation is Absolutely Essential

Every home has to reflect the people who live in it. That’s my approach to design anyway. Whenever I design a client’s interior, I always insist we display photos. If you don’t, then it feels like you’re living in a display home. And while I do love me chic display home style, you gotta personalise your own space.

The same goes for your Christmas decorations. I want to walk into your home and get a feel for everyone who lives there. I want to see names on stocking. I want names on baubles. I want your dog or cats name on an ornament on your tree. This is what makes the theme yours, whether you’re rocking Scandi Christmas decorations or another vibe entirely.

That’s why I’m crushing so hard on The Christmas Cart. There’s so much personalisation in their Christmas range. Think Santa sacks with your name on them. Think baubles with your names on them. They do stockings, of course, and even other tree decorations with names sprawled across them. It’s the best way to give your festive styling some heart and soul. And you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be getting decorations some with my cats names on them this year.

“I want to walk into your home and get a feel for everyone who lives there. Personalisation is what makes the theme yours, whether you’re rocking Scandi Christmas decorations or another vibe entirely”.

You Gotta Go Well Beyond the Tree too!

I know that Christmas can get pricey, and I know you don’t want to overspend. But I think of Christmas decorations (the good ones, not the cheap stuff from the chain stores) as keepsakes. These can and should be in your family for decades. There was nothing better as a teen than looking back on Christmas decorations from when you were three years old. That’s memory-making stuff right there.

That’s why I think it’s wise to invest in some key pieces that you’ll have forever. And often these pieces aren’t necessarily going to hang on the tree. The collection below (some of my faves from The Christmas Cart) gives you an idea of ways you can go beyond those glorious tree decos and look to other zones.

A mantlepiece, for example, is ideal to display some more Scandi Christmas decorations. But so is the ceiling. That silver star below is actually suspended from the ceiling, and I love this idea as an alternative to putting something on the top of the tree. The woodland creatures in the glass dome below also makes my heart skip a beat. There’s something so charming about them.

Last top tip when it comes to pulling off a Nordic vibe at Christmas: Fairy lights. But keep them to a warm white bulb. No icy blues. No multi-coloured flashing varieties. Keep it simple with the lighting and you’ll evoke instant Scandi charm.

Where to get the Best in Scandi Christmas Decorations

I know I’ve banged on about Scandi Christmas decorations here. But trust me when I say that The Christmas Cart sells soooo many other looks, themes and vibes. You got the bright red and gold look. They have the white and turquoise look. Silver, green and gold decorations are also up for the taking. It’s possibly the best one-stop festive shop ever.

Personalised items ship within 5 business days too. Gotta call that out. So you can shop away now for your personalised stocking or bauble and know it’ll arrive before you put the tree up.

The Christmas Cart story began in 2008, when Deborah Quinn and Kym Aldred opened a personalised Christmas decoration pop-up shop. As two mums who loved Christmas and enjoy nothing better than sharing the festive spirit, this was an opportunity they couldn’t turn down.

So Deb and Kym came together, utilising their respective skills as a marketer and designer. And 11 years on they’re still going strong. What started as just a bit of fun for the pair, soon grew into a blossoming business. And seriously, how good is it to support small business? It certainly gives me warm and fuzzies.

Speaking of warm and fuzzies, now is the time to enter the amazing Christmas Cart competition below.

To enter to win, simply:

Comp open to Aus residents only. Comp closed 11.59pm Tuesday November 26. Winner announced here and notified via email.

Good luck everyone. I’m off to buy some Scandi Christmas decorations of my own!

  • Deb smith

  • Sharnee

    Totally would get the pine wreath and personalized Santa sacks for my 2 girls and darling boy due just before Christmas <3 and some wooden decorations to finish off my tree

  • Annie

    I love the Icicle Personalised Christmas Baubles and the Jute Merry Christmas Wreath Sack, amongst other things. The colours mean I could continue using them each year regardless of my chosen Christmas styling choice, making them sustainable options.
    As we have family coming for Christmas who haven’t been back to the country for five years it would also be extra special to have personalised baubles and Santa sacks to show them how much we appreciate them.

  • Rebecca Dickson

    I don’t even know how you can choose even just a couple of thing’s from the Christmas Cart website. I want most of the florals to make table decorations, add to floral vases or as embellishments on presents. Then there’s the rose gold glass baubles which would just be the icing on my Christmas tree and the llama’s because they’re hella cute!!

  • Heather Charles

    Definitely need the white Christmas bon bons and silver white glass tree decorations..go the scandi theme,..just love it.

  • Michael Hawthorn

    I’m loving all the natural tones with a touch of sparkle. Love the pine cones and the wreathes – having simple yet effective decorations are key styling a room.

    It’s that attention to the finer detail.

  • Mel Champion

    I’m loving the personalised baubles and stockings…anything I can put my kids and fur kids names on, I’m there!! I love Christmas and think it’s the best time of the year…being able to decorate the whole house from the front door to the dining table is utter bliss to me!!

  • Gillian

    The keepsake boxes would be gorgeous for my girls!

  • Andrea

    Ooh! Great prize! I’ve bought personalised baubles from The Christmas Cart before, and their stuff is awesome!

    This year, I must have that “Fluffy Pink Llama with Blue Bow“ (dying of cute), the personalised dog baubles with the bells are making me giggle with glee (my tree is a shrine to all things quirky!) and a tree skirt.

    $300, to spend decorating my tree? Well, if I won, all my Christmases will have come at once (and I’d probably need to get a second tree to decorate).

  • Jasmine

    I love the personalised baubles and Xmas sacks because I love all things personalised and this Xmas will be extra special with my first child and celebrating our first as a family.

  • Heath C

    The fluffy llamas! Or anything star shaped

  • Alanna

    I love he personalised baubles and Santa sacks, and that they have a blog on Christmas gift ideas. Beautifully done

  • Jade OShea

    The personalised stockings and Christmas tree baubles are a great way way to add a personal touch to the festive season, it really is the most wonderful time of the year!!!

  • Donna

    A Llama with a pom pom hat….!? Yes please 🙂

  • Jessica Zweck

    I just adore the icicle personalized baubles and can’t wait to get my hands on some of the florals to make my Christmas Day table scape!
    Of course who doesn’t need more tree decorations – it’s hard to pick a favourite when there’s so many blingy ones to die for!!

  • Lee Mills

    How do you choose a favourite when there is so much inspiration….love, love the neutral tones and those personalised Santa sacks oh my ….already planning my order for some personalised baubles (what a great Christmas gift that keeps giving) and I cannot wait to sit down with a cuppa and get inspired with the DIY and great blog x

  • Alan Horrell

    THE FLUFFY BIRDS!!! They are sooo cute, i might just fill my whole tree with them if i won!

  • Francene Lawler

    Wow. The Christmas cart has such a beautiful range of Christmas decor and decorations! I’d buy the whole store if I could! It was so hard picking out my favourites because I love them all but I got it down to three.
    – The golden nutcrackers
    – The little Christmas angels
    – The berry and apple wreath
    They would make my home look that extra special and fill it with the Christmas spirit!

  • Jon

    Loving the selection of Christmas wreaths – particularly the red magnolia wreath, reflecting the white magnolias in the backyard! And the evergreen mixed pine wreath for inside the house on top of the mantelpiece!

  • Jenny

    Thank you for introducing me to the Christmas Cart Chris – I love that they have everything including napery (love the table runners), signs and that twig window piece so cute but my fave is the OCD mug (I know a few people that deserve that Obsessive Christmas Disorder ) mug that have been giving me the countdown for Christmas for months!

  • Tania B

    Green and Gold Mistletoe Christmas Tree Skirt is the one for me. The grandchildren would be delighted with a personalised stocking to make them feel extra special.

  • Jayne Cummins

    So hard to pick !!! So many gorgeous ornaments. Love the light up bird cage with candle. I’m planning a natural Christmas theme this year with a little Aussie twist. $300 voucher would be so easy to spend. I would start with natural burlap flowers, then some Aussie animal ornaments. I love the OCD (obsessed Christmas disorder) mugs !! Time to take another look. Good luck everyone

  • Patricia

    So many beautiful things, Burlap Flower Pick Black Glitter Trim, Small Champagne Woodchip Wreath Ornaments, Gold Royale Metal Tree Topper, personalised Christmas plaques… so many wonderful things

  • Penny

    Fluffy White Llama with Hat. Love, love, love. Cute, modern and very festive.

  • Anita Smith

    I love to make things myself for that true personal touch, so just adore the capacity to make some baubles myself with the supplies on offer here. I also am going to order some personalised stockings for the kids and grandkids! Just perfect!

  • Tina

    I can only imagine the thrill my grand kids would get seeing their own Elf Xmas Stocking with dangly legs, hanging near the fireplace, filled with a few goodies.

  • Erika

    I’ve been searching for a good tree skirt to hide the rather ugly stand on my plastic tree, and I think the Burlap Merry Christmas Tree Skirt with Red Trim would be perfect. I can just see our cats snuggling down for a snooze on it after attempting to climb the tree, as they do every year!

    I also love the Pink Felt Ball Garland String – very cute, and could be used year round. Although, that might be a little bit too much temptation for furry little paws 🙂

  • Ellis Johnston

    I absolutely loooove Christmas too! My Christmas day table ware is usually elegantly decorated with fairy lights and a few baubles, but I think the Red and Green Toy Box Christmas Bon Bons would top it off. Though I wouldn’t want to pop them because they are so damn cute!

  • Michelle Thompson

    I love the Sugar Plum tote bags, so pretty and Christmassy!
    Perfect for bigger, hard to wrap items.

  • Bianca Sames

    The blue ocean themed decorations are gorgeous our favourite colour is blue and we’re all water babies here love them they’re a gorgeous idea and it’s less boring than average decorations in our household of 4 there’s three of us with disabilities so we love to be different and stand out just like these gorgeous blue shells and seahorses. ❤️

  • Caroline Gunnulson

    Santa in the Red Ute Lightup since we are hosting our Car club Christmas Party this would be so apt.

  • Amanda Quayle

    Feliz navidad, go the La La Llamas!! Colourful Christmas is where its at!! I’m ordering the multicolour felt ball stars now and I love the personalised Santa sacks too.

  • Gail Keen

    I love all the burlap and can’t wait to order some personalised stockings for a very special Christmas this year which will be spent with some gorgeous children – after all it is the little people who make Christmas magical!!!

  • carolyn stobie

    I love all things Xmas. I especially like the floral wreaths, and the little owls.

  • Carley

    I can’t go past a personalised Bon Bon!! And chuffed they haven’t over luxed the surprises… plastic fish and bottle opener!!

  • Christine Smalley

    Love the burlap merry Christmas tree skirt which would anchor the worst of trees. I would pair it with a natural woven star. Also love the personalised Christmas sacks. The caravan Christmas tree decorations would make unique small gifts.

  • May

    I adore everything about Christmas (except Brussel sprouts!). I have a silver and pale blue theme going which blends well with my Hamptons style. I believe that you can do Christmas decorations to excess and still be elegant. I am rocking the beautiful and on trend garlands from The Christmas Cart.

  • Gayle Vos

    I would love to get some Personalised Baubles as I’ve had many new additions to my family over the past few years and I think these are just awesome and the Christmas Cushions look like a bit of chrissy fun.

  • Faye Dealy

    I have a love of birds that I didn’t realise until I saw those beautiful blush coloured bird ornaments. That will be my colour scheme this year for my black Xmas tree. Blush and silver. But don’t forget that the wrapping has to match as well.

  • mj

    The squirrel in the little pink jacket!
    The translucent rose gold glass finials!
    The personalised calico Nordic sacks!
    I could go on. #christmascrazy

  • carol Mcaneney

    Hard to pick I love everything, but really love the Rustic Pine Christmas Garland and the Bright Green Berry Christmas Spray, they would look absolutely fabulous on my Black gloss Fireplace. Every year I struggle to get something really nice, and usually end up chopping off bits of my Cyprus trees to try to make it look Christmassy.

  • Patricia Comer

    I am loving the Christmas angel with the pink hat and the champagne and glitter birds and gorgeous light pink fur bird with rhinestones because my current situation places me in catastrophic bushfire zone and outside all I see is white smoke. It is eerily quiet and visibility is low and breathing is impaired. I went to work yesterday and the blackened bush, houses reduced to rubble , and ash in places was evident and confronting. An odd kookaburra was rummaging in the dirt on the edge of the road searching or chasing something to eat. Smouldering trees and places evacuated or abandoned? I am at home with my children, no work, no school and nothing is normal. I would love to shed a little beauty at our place this Christmas in amongst the present chaos that is looming around us here in Taree, NSW.

    • Penny White

      CONGRATULATIONS Patricia on winning the comp. I’m so glad it went to someone deserving. I’m so sorry for what you and your family have been through there at Taree and hope that the area recovers quickly. Enjoy your beautiful things and have a beautiful Christmas.
      Kind Regards

  • Karen

    I’m in need of a new wreath due to a marriage separation and leaving the old one behind I LOVE the Glitter mistletoe wreath with white berries and also the wood star stocking hanger, because my new house has a fireplace So many beautiful Christmas goodies to choose from, I love Christmas!

  • Lynette Wicks

    SO hard to pick. I love most of your range. The personalized glitter balls, and the Rustic Pine Christmas Garland are two of the ones I would choose. I love alpacas and llamas so the one wth Christmas hat would also be a choice.

  • Karen Wheeler

    Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful website! So much Christmas goodness! I think the Sugar Plum theme would work well in my house at the moment. My 8 year old would love the little squirrels. I love it all! I also love a table top tree – you can’t have too many Christmas trees I say, and I really love the Fresh Cut Look Fir Christmas Tree in the natural pot. Very versatile and something that could work in with different colour schemes. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and thanks for the inspiring content you share with us 🙂

  • Penny White

    A solo mum, my budget is squeezed
    Please pick me please
    I’m Christmas obsessed
    But the years not been kind
    Even my credit card
    Keeps getting declined

    Too cute are the STOCKINGS with POM-POMS & FUR
    PERSONALISED everything for him & her
    And if I win, everything will be free

    No Scandi here, it’s bling all the way
    Will just make my display
    Those ACORNS those TEARDROPS
    The FINIALS too
    Now I’ll just leave, it’s now up to you!

  • Megan Lloyd-Evans

    My favourites on the site are the acorn ornaments, the woven star and the standing bird. We are still using the same plastic tree that my family used back in the seventies (sounds terrible, but it srubs up well), I buy something new every year and in recent years have been going for glass. Something more natural appeals this year. Love your posts – I’ve started a design course and signed up to your emails a while ago. I love your ideas.

    • Penny White

      Hey Megan

      What design course are you doing hun?

  • Kirsty

    My favorite memory as a kid was waking up to a sack at the end of my bed filled with treasures and treats. The Nordic calico sack paired with the linen personalised tag is something to have for my kids and future grandkids x

  • Kara

    The personalised stockings are divine! We have recently purchased and moved into a new house, which has a fireplace. These would be an amazing addition to our Christmas display, to celebrate our first Christmas together in our new place!

  • Allison Wilson

    The glass cloche light up ornaments are particularly classy and beautiful. They fit perfectly into a Nordic themed Christmas. I also love the personalised Santa sacks. My grandson, Elias, would be thrilled to rummage around in one on Christmas morning!

  • Brenda Fraser

    I’m slightly llama obsessed so I’m mighty impressed by the collection of llama tree decorations, particularly the White Fluffy Llamas… I can imagine my tree decorated with nothing but!

  • Charmaine Campbell

    After splitting up with my husband, I will be sharing Christmas with my new partner this year. I’ll be starting from scratch and need a tree, so it’s time to shake things up and I love the felt garlands in blue and green. My partner is a traditional red and green decorator so will be interesting to see how we can compromise. I also love the square bon bons, they will sit beautifully on my table I’m sure!

  • Miranda Farmer

    O.M.G can you believe there’s a cat in a Santa Boot decoration?! That you can personalise! I need these in my life! This year I’ve vowed to ditch my crappy chain store decorations (goodbye 50 pack of baby pink baubles, you’ve served me well!) and these kitty’s would be the purrrrfect start

  • Gaynor Robinson

    I love the Sugar Plum range especially th e tassels If you started with the colours of the tassels and built up from there The effect is nostalgic with a modern twist Perfect Christmas theme

  • Merinda Crothers

    I really like the Australian style in some of the garland and wreaths such as the hydrangeas. The teacher gift ideas where sweet but realistically affordable. I usually give vouchers to all the teachers but I was genuinely inspired by the cute little bells.

  • Sharon

    It’s so hard to decide! We’re everything Christmas here too but loving the rustic stockings. Would look perfect at our place

  • Aliya Hutchison

    What a gorgeous shop! I love the home decor, especially the traditional style grandfather clock and the super cute Llamas. The tree garlands (bells especially) are just adorable.

  • Kerry

    I’m totally embracing the scandi theme this Christmas! I love the Burlap flower – will look perfect with my wooden and silver tree ornaments.

  • Ann

    This will be my fist Christmas alone this year and I know the sight of my home decorated with Frosted Green Leaf Wreaths, a Christmas tree covered with gorgeous Silver Pinecone Ornaments and Wooden Hanging Stars nestled on the Burlap Merry Christmas Tree Skirt will fill my heart with joy, peace and hygge!

  • Jacinta Nimmo

    Well I do love some good recipe ideas, so love the recipe section, and love the personalised things!

  • Joanne

    I love the personalised stockings,
    A present that can be reused each year,
    The Koala and Kangaroo are my favourites,
    They add an Australian flavour which is often missing I fear.

  • Leonie

    Where do I start?

    Personalised White Fur Christmas Stocking with Pom Poms

    Personalised Do Not Open Burlap Santa Sack

    Personalised White Linen Santa Sack Tag Small

    Translucent Gold Glass Finials and Baubles – Set of 4

    White Glitter Brush Stroke Bauble and Finial – Set of 2

    Can never have enough Christmas ornaments every one of my 1000 tip trre has to have something hanging off it.

  • Emma

    Ahhhhh I love Christmas and so many gorgeous products in the Christmas Cart! Loving the Personalised Sugarplum Merry Canvas Gift Tote Bag – beautiful botanical theme!

  • Suezanne Martin

    Native eucalyptus wreath all the way! Love to observe Christmas with an Aussie twist!

  • Virginia C

    The coastal stockings would be a beautiful addition to our home. Such a lovely idea for the personalisation! And the beautiful conch shell ornaments, they are divine. So many beautiful Christmassy, but my favourite item of all was the Lush Full Evergreen Mixed Pine Wreath! Goodness, so many pretty things for Christmas all in the one place!

  • Deb Vo

    Hi Chris,

    Totally love the Scandinavian theme too. I follow heaps online & can’t get enough especially when it comes to X-mas. Can’t wait to see yours.

    What’s a fave are the personalised pet decorations because I think everyone knows someone whom owns a dog, cat, fish or bird etc. they are in our lives & are family. So therefore, they will need to be added & made yo feel special during this time too.

  • sharyn

    okay I have quite a list as my kids think we are very “unchristmassy” and don’t have enough Christmas decorations like everyone else (yes bad mum I am) so to give my kids a smile and to make me feel more “Christmassy” I love the following:
    Rappin Reindeer Musical Toy
    Brown LED Branch Seed Light
    Aqua Glitter String Garland
    Fluffy White Llama with Hat – Sitting
    Christmas Tree Snowglobe Lightup Ornament
    Traditional Christmas Wooden Nutcracker Soldier Ornament with Staff – Large
    Light Up Musical Winter House Globe
    Miniature Christmas Houses Lightup Ornament
    Christmas Snow Scene Lightup Ornaments – Set of 3
    White Reindeer in Glass Cloche Lightup Ornament
    Light Pink Fur Bird with Rhinestones – Sitting
    Heart Angel Light Up Ball
    Now I will stop here as plenty more I could choose and just looking at these are making me feel “Christmassy” – oh dear what on earth is happening to me 🙂

  • Suzanne

    Love the Lush Full Evergreen Mixed Pine Garland. We have a fire place now so am busting at the seams to decorate it this year

  • lynne lillington

    Lush Full Evergreen Mixed Pine Wreath, its full and lush and I can add what I like to it for a personal wreath, and I love your range of ornaments to put on it .
    Large White Lightup Angel with Heart, In memory of those who are not with us at Christmas, and I’d personalise it for my dad .

  • Jenna

    I looooove the tree skirts, I didn’t even know they were a thing!! Also I can’t go past personalised baubles for my kids each year

  • Emma gorvin

    Last week I decided to give away my massive xmas tree and decorations on a local pay it forward page to a lady that was in much more need than me, our house was way to small for our way to big tree so I just gave her everything.
    Would be nice to buy a little tree and decorate it with all those beautifulxmas tree decorations because now my kids dont have a xmas tree.

  • Lin

    I could probably send myself bankrupt at The Christmas Cart but if I had to pick only one thing I love the white squirrels in pink jackets/ scarves more than anything. I grew up in rural Wiltshire (UK) where squirrels, hedgehogs, moles etc were abundant so anything ‘woodland’ themed has a soft spot in my heart (as demonstrated by my 7 year old daughter’s woodland themed bedroom.) Merry Christmas! 😀

  • Emma-Lee Bowden

    This will be our first Christmas in our new (1980’s ) home in Heathcote, NSW. Surrounded by National Park I can’t help but keep the vibe of our surroundings flowing through our home from everything from artwork to plants! It is for this reason I would love the Native Eucalyptus Leaf Christmas Wreath to hang on our front door.

    A fresh tree has always been a tradition in our family and with my own children we have made this event even more special by making memories cutting down the tree ourselves. I think the Natural Pine Cone Drop Trio ornament would work perfectly on our tree given our surroundings

  • Sharna

    It’s a tough call redesigning the Christmas tree when the kids bring home soooo many wonderful school made decorations, but I gotta get me some fluffy llamas

  • David Braybrooke

    Personalised calico Nordic sack, a fantastic Santa touch for all the kids at Xmas. Ho, ho, ho!

  • Nicole Wilke

    I love everything sugar plum from the antique glass baubles to the faux rose gold pine cones there is a sense of childhood wonder about the range but my favourite is the pink velvet baby deer it’s so cute.

  • Natalie Dagli

    You can beat the personalised Christmas stockings. They are the epitome of Christmas. I’d love to have them hanging off our mantle above the fireplace (although not in use as we have an Aussie Xmas) just like every classic Christmas book/movie. With my next (and last) child due in two weeks it’s the perfect time to get my family a complete set of matching stockings. Who better to create these lasting memories for us, Deb and Kym x

  • Margaret Chafer

    I love the Scandi natural looks, so we would add some real pine-cones and Christmas bush under our tree.

  • Caterina bartolillo

    Love the Christmas florals, wreaths, garlands and sprays. They are elegant and sophisticated. Stunning pieces that fill the room with luxury and Christmas spirit.

  • Sharni

    I love, love, LOVE all the personalised stockings and Christmas decoration, particularly the Personalised Vintage Reindeer Christmas Stocking – Black Cuff because it fits in with the theme of our house. I never realised Christmas decorations can look so beautiful! This will be our 4 month old’s first Christmas, and the first time we will be setting up Christmas decorations!

  • Mandy Graham

    I love the cute Personalised Santa Christmas Stockings. Perfect for the family.

  • Patricia Myles

    My favoutite is the personalised Cat in Santa Boot Christmas Decoration. We are a cat family and I would get one personalised for all of the humans and our two cats as well. It is just so adorable. Also the Light Pink Fur Bird with Rhinestones is just one of the cutest things I have ever seen!


    We live in hope of a white Christmas – but knowing Melbourne’s weather anything is possible. Just might be appropriate for all this white.

  • chris horgan

    I like every guest to feel like they have a special place at my Christmas table, so the Personalised Silver and White Damask Christmas Bon Bons are the perfect place card to make everyone feel festive and welcome.

    Personalised Santa Sacs and Stockings put the TLC in ‘Totally Loveable Christmas’ joy to be found in every special gift as the Nordic style warms the heart and soothes the soul with that extra TLC everyone needs at Christmas.

    I find the personalised baubles perfect and elegant as that is a very meaningful object in our family to have our mum still with us on a very special day full of family and love. I love how much variety there is with decorating them and your home. x

  • Erin Tracey Richardson

    I’m hosting Christmas this year
    the gorgeous personalised Bon Bons would be a treat
    Velvet tree skirt and Magnolia Wreath
    make it look complete

  • Allison Julian

    I love the selection of Nutcrackers! I’d quite happily purchase all of them to add to my collection.

  • Samantha Jubb

    So many delightful items to choose from. Here are some of my favs: Brass Angel Tea Light (would look perfect as a centerpiece), Santa in Red Ute Lightup Ornament (it reminds the kids of their Grandpa in his ute), Light Up Musical Santa Globe (looks like so much fun), and the Charcoal Beaded Snowflake with Crystals (incredibly detailed ornament).

  • Rosana Bouzas

    The table centrepieces caught my eye, especially the Rustic Pine Christmas Garland!

  • Marie White

    I love all the different deer, birds and other animals and I love the personalised stockings with the dangling legs but my favourite are the christmas character shatterproof baubles (my cat can’t destroy them).

  • Glyn Bailey

    The matt gold/copper garland on rope look authentically old. Definitely would be a welcome addition.

  • desley geeves

    I love the personalised baubles now we have 5 grandbabies it would be a perfect addition to the family tree each year.Always remember watching the xmas episodes of Days of our lives growing up and Alice Horton hanging the families names up on their big xmas tree. Magical family tree decorating times and a new tradition that can be handed down to the little ones in the future

  • Kate

    I love a bit of DIY for christmas and love the look of the Twig Window and the Small Natural Wreath Base for me and my two little girls to decorate with the neighbour’s ghost gum branches and christmas baubles.

  • Olivia Pasalidis

    The personalized items are so unique. The tree skirts are different and exciting

  • Kathleen Gaza

    I am a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas, with an English heritage. My favourite items from The Christmas Cart are the Red Berry and Apple Christmas Garland for my tabletop, and the Traditional Christmas Wooden Nutcracker Soldier Ornament with Staff. The garland is the perfect centrepiece, traditional yet modern; and the nutcracker would be a fantastic additional to my ever growing collection.

  • Nicola Pengilly

    The small apple and berry wreath – it would be perfect for my front door

  • Ann Nicholson

    I loved the Hygee Christmas Poster – “Merry Everything and Happy Always”. This sums up the spirit of Christmas but also extends to everyone regardless of race or religion and extends to the whole year. Perfect!

  • tarryn edwards

    i just cant go passed how gorgeous the sugar plum collection in. beautiful soft colours, blushes. the little girl in me is screaming with joy!

  • Sharna OGrady

    I absolutely love SCANDI CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS as it embues the spirit of my style of Xmas.

  • Bernie Schelfhout

    I was admiring the personalised bon bons and Christmas stockings along with the personalised baubles.

  • Michelle Louise

    I’ve just spent the last hour looking through every Christmas theme on The Christmas Cart’s website. What a wonderful idea! I am already obsessed! I have to confess I am one of those people who love festive decorating and completing agree that Christmas décor should evoke memories and be kept as family heirlooms.
    My favourite themes from The Christmas Cart’s website include:
    Vintage Christmas Theme: This is so Downton Abbey to me! I love the Crystal Green Leaf Wreath and the Antique Tealight holder. Oh and the Jute and Lave Natural Roll Table Runner is so fancy.
    The Sugar Plum Christmas: Oh my! This collection is a Nutcracker fan’s dream! I am loving the Personalised Sugarplum Merry Christmas Canvas Santa Sack, the Fabric Angel Decorations all of the cute pink, furry animals and of course the Royal Gold and White Nutcracker!
    Magical Christmas Morning: This reminds me of the toy shop in Home Alone 2! I am loving the Light up ornaments and Magical Santa Globes. Those Waterfall Seed Fairy Lights are also stunning.
    I am so inspired by the themed collections and honestly am having a hard time choosing which one I would like to emulate. They are all so magical. Good luck everyone!

    A Santa Sack! Who said that you can’t start a tradition later in life. We never had them growing up and the hessian sacks will look wonderful under by tree this year which is a gum tree.

    It has to be the white squirrel with bushy tail. I collect squirrels and they are adorable. It’s a great shop and reasonably priced. Will keep this link

    I love the personalised products such as the Santa sacks & stocking. Makes the tee and decorations more personal and sentimental and doubles as a keepsake that my kids will be able to take with them when they move out of home and have their own families..

  • Sue McGregor

    It’s the time for giving & to give something with a personal touch just means that little bit more. Your personalised decorations from baubles to stockings are a gorgeous touch & the Santa sacks would light up any childs face. Just beautiful.

    The Christmas Cart company make the most lovely Christmas decorations and Christmas gifts.
    I love their personalised Christmas stocking they are so beautiful and the kids think they are a present in themselves. They are also of the highest quality.
    Their First Christmas baubles make beautiful keepsakes as do their glass ones all of which you can customize.

    It’s my babies first Christmas and he needs personalized everything!! In particular the personalized teddy bear stocking as he is my Kobi bear!
    These are some of the loveliest Christmas decorations I’ve seen for some time.

    I love the personalised Christmas baubles and silver and white damask personalised Bon Bons! However my favourite is the Random Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar as this will help spread Christmas cheer far and wide and brighten the season for others.

  • Paula Simpson

    The personalised Santa sacks are a perfect gift for my grandkids

    I am in love with personalized baubles, reminds me of when i was a kid and we had these hanging on our Christmas tree. its a beautiful way to personalize your Christmas tree. definitely would recommend

  • Jenna Eager

    I love the 8cm Clear Glass Craft Bauble – Set of 4 and the Baby Pink Teddy Bear Stocking and Bauble Pack. They would make my daughter’s first Christmas magical and her brother could join in on the fun by making his own decorations!

  • Alison Le

    Love love the Burlap tree skirting. Simple yet beautiful. The glass cloche ornaments would light up my daughter’s face if she gets to hang some of those.

    Christmas card has so many gorgeous items.. as someone who adores Christmas I have purchased so many of their personalised Christmas decorations.. including baubles for my Dog and Cat…My favourites are the blush pink and silver decorations as well as the calico Christmas stockings..

    OMG the Personalised White and Gold Damask Bon Bons must have my name on it – My middle name is Noelle and I love christmas – they will make any table setting pop

  • robyn scannapiego

    I just love the use of Birds and Feathers. The silver birds are just beautiful. We had birds on our Christmas tree when I was a child (50 odd years ago) and they take me back to magical memories. Merry Christmas.

  • Kellie Anderson

    I think I require the whole Sugar Plum Collection. OMG! It is gorgeous. Full Christmas decor makeover done right there!


    I simply love all but really love the GOLD METAL SNOWFLAKES for the CHRISTMAS TREE

  • Alli Groves

    Hello Christmas Cart! Your Sugar Plum range is my favourite – I know so many girls who would love a pink crown decoration for their tree.

  • Robyn Westgate

    I reallyike the Scandi Christmas idea. I usually use brown pwto wrap and decorate it with lots of ribbon to make it ping. I e had great fun looking at the possibilities with the burlap sequin flowers and tree skirt, and some pine cone trees when I came across the llama… Never would have thought of a Christellamabut so cute, the fitting luffy white with Hg at. But then… I found the Aussie ones!! They are perfect, the echidna, Emu, kangaroo and koala are magical and it is so nice to see Aussie themed. Thank you for giving me ideas and making me smile. Merry Christmas to you all.

  • Robyn Westgate

    Sorry about the typos and auto correct glitches… The sentiment is still there though ❤️

  • Doreen

    I especially love the beautiful wreaths and the personalised silver and white damask bon bons. The wreaths remind me of a snowy Christmas from when I was a child. Just love so many things I cant list them all! A little bit of Scandi nostalgia in my newly reno’d Hamptons Style house would be lovely on our hot Xmas day in Western Australia.

  • Jodie Davidson

    The Burgundy feather wreath is to die for, love it all!

  • karina l

    Would love some personalised stockings for the whole family so we can all get some goodies from Santa in there!

  • Kerry Vncenti

    I love the little table Christmas Tree as they remind me of my childhood as my mum always had a small tree for our table.
