The production of these beautiful hand blown glass ornaments created a thriving cottage industry at the turn of the century and they were produced in thousands of shapes and sizes. The industry went into decline in the 1940ís though and nowadays Christmas tree baubles and decorations are made from a wide range of materials, from manmade plastics to traditional wood.
Christmas lights add a beautiful sparkle, whether inside your home or in the garden and these days, there is a wide range of illuminations available, from pretty strings of fairy lights to modern LED ropes. You can see what's possible with imaginative Christmas lighting at Lights4Fun.
Perfect Christmas decorations
Everyone has different style and tastes and this is reflected in the wide assortment of baubles available today. Whilst themed decorations and trees can look very stylish, donít be afraid to include childhood favourites too, even if they donít quite match the rest. A good collection of tree ornaments tends to be something that grows over a lifetime, with special ones being passed down through the generations, so it would be a shame to let style completely overrule tradition at this time of year!
Gardening Express have a beautiful range of traditional Christmas decorations, wreaths and trees.
