Our joyful décor encapsulates some of our key 2017 trends, through unique and exclusive ornaments. These design tendencies reinforce the sense of Britishness by sprinkling national nostalgia.

  5. NEW: Festive Train

    Trains have always played a significant role during Christmas. Since their creation, they have allowed millions of passengers to travel home in December. At the end of 19th century, steam trains were used to transport Christmas presents sent from elsewhere. Due to their crucial missions, trains rapidly became popular decorative items. Moving around Christmas trees or resting on mantelpieces, little trains have continually served to reinforce the magical essence of Christmas whilst provoking joy around.


    This year, Festive 2017 range is dominated by an impressive display steam train. Measuring 250cm, our black train, adorned with the number ‘25’ and a powerful spotlight, is the perfect product to create a nostalgic décor and deliver the Christmas spirit at home. Producing remarkable and realistic sound effects, our gigantic and captivating train can get anybody in a cheery mood.

  6. Christmas Gherkin

    Leave a Comment

    Did you know that Americans place a gherkin made of glass on their Christmas tree? In the United States, stockings, baubles, wire lights, and presents are not the only mandatory festive items! The Christmas gherkin definitely has a crucial part in the gleeful celebrations.

    Adding a gherkin to a Christmas tree is a popular tradition, believed to have first seen the day in Germany. This cheery custom works as follows: parents wait until Christmas Eve to hide a small glass ornament shaped into a gherkin on their tree. The gherkin has to be concealed between the branches so it remains out of sight. When Christmas day arrives, children wake up with one mission: finding the hidden gherkin. The first to spot the decoration on the tree is either rewarded with an extra present, or is promised a year of good fortune.

    At Festive, we believe in putting foreign traditions into the spotlight. This year, we are introducing our own gherkin. Wearing a lovely Santa hat, our gherkin is ideal to spend fun family times.

  7. NEW: Festive Everyday Lighting range

    Leave a Comment


    2017 is clearly devoted to innovations for Festive Productions. Indeed, this year, we are launching a new lighting range composed of amazing products which can be used at any time of the year, Christmas included.

    Indoor lights are essential decorative items during the seasonal celebrations as they can enliven a Christmas display with merriment and elegance. Unfortunately, lighting decorations designed for Christmas time, end up disappearing once the festivities are officially done.

    This year, we are releasing a new collection of lights which can be left up every day. Not only are they absolutely perfect to be used during Christmas, they are also designed to stay over all year long.

    Our practical and decorative everyday lights have the particularity to come in original and bright containers (bottles, jars, and tea light holders). The radiance of these battery operated lights is therefore greatly enhanced.

    IMG_6820Every January, Festive takes part in Harrogate Christmas & Gift to exhibit its fabulous decorations. This year, we have introduced our new themes and trends, including our Arctic Ice realm inhabited by adorable penguins, bears, narwhals, and reindeers. Festive polar world stands out with its snowy, and icy elements creating a mesmerising atmosphere. Not only does Festive icy display represent the magical ambiance from the polar hemispheres, our décor also highlights some of our key 2017 trends. Such tendencies, seen through our different hanging ornaments, serve to restyle a popular theme known and appreciated by everybody. The integration of specific design trends into our display reinforces our decorative statements whilst adding an original twist.

    IMG_6821Trend Highlights

    Four trends can be distinguished on our tree. Some tendencies are at the service of our icy theme, and others contribute to construct a sense of uniqueness and modernity. To produce our 2017 Arctic décor, we have favoured realistic representations of polar animals, and focused on decorations celebrating snow and ice. We have also featured geometric elements to galvanise our display with elegance.

    festive-british-made-tinsel-collection-1Tinsel remains our flagship product in 2017. Made from metallised PVC, our British made tinsel is constantly evolving and modernising to satisfy increasing demand. Whilst our traditional pieces (red/green/gold/silver fine cut/chunky tinsel) remain in our 2017 range due to their continuing success, many novelties in our tinsel collection are to be noted.

    Trendy colours

    This year, red, green, gold, silver, white, and purple are joined by fashionable tones. Our high-quality tinsel comes in sophisticated metallic shades and delightful blue tones. Whilst matt champagne, bronze, and matt silver symbolise refinement, powder blue, teal, and mint blue, inspiring calm, are perfect to create a winter wonderland scenery. In 2017, colours are also mixed to create unbelievable harmonies.

    Colours come with different finishes too. Not only can tinsel be glossy and matt, the Christmas must-have looks amazing when produced with holographic and embossed effects.1

    Moreover, we have garlands composed of superb large fern leaves. Amongst our most original tinsel pieces, 2017 sees the appearance of crinkle loop and spiral bubble garlands, which will get anyone into a festive mood.2
