In 2017, Festive Productions is reinforcing its licencing agreements with Disney and Universal. Our new licenced collection, comprising Frozen, Disney Princess, Mickey and friends, and Minions, heavily rely on the current developments undertaken by both entertainment empires.
Not only will princesses Elsa and Anna be back in the second opus of the popularly acclaimed Disney film, Frozen, the two sisters, from Arendelle, will also continue their magical adventures with Festive. Our 2017 Frozen range, including lovely hanging ornaments and twinkling tinsel, will enchant everybody this Christmas.
With the release of Beauty and the Beast in March, the knowledgeable Belle is leading our 2017 Disney Princess collection with her own decorated Christmas tree. This year, Festive is more committed than ever to the Dream Big, Princess Campaign, dwelling on princesses’ qualities to empower young girls. Festive decorations, varying from figurines to baubles, highlight the inspiring qualities of these smart, adventurous, kind, and creative heroines.
What would Disney be without its emblematic characters, Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, and Donald Duck? The most famous mouse, accompanied with his lover and friends, will be at the core of our 2017 Disney range, designed to reinforce the traditional spirit of Christmas.
Minions will joyfully enliven this summer as they will return to the new Universal animated film, Despicable Me 3. Minions are also staying in Festive to keep spreading happiness this Christmas. Our Minions decorations will bring incredible laughter and cute cheekiness in 2017.
Each year, Festive cheerfully takes part in the trade show, NEC Spring Fair, to present its marvellous and innovative Christmas decorations. The 2017 exhibit has been sensational for our company. In addition to showcasing our impressive train, stunning trees, and original lights, we have introduced our new Christmas themes and design trends through elaborate and mesmerising displays. Our Harmony trend, unveiled at NEC, delivers tranquil décors encouraging the mind to disconnect from the chaos dominating the world. Our Harmony collection serves to develop a serene atmosphere, essential to find inner peace and happiness. Influenced by the Bohemian culture, Harmony is a trend that heavily relies on elements found on our splendid Earth, varying from crystals to stones.
Our Harmony tree displayed at NEC is adorned with delicate ornaments embodying calmness and grace. Producing a décor inspired by our Harmony trend requires decorations resembling glamourous jewels, as they express peaceful sensuality. The earthy aspect of our design can be reproduced with ornaments representing the anatomy of stones and minerals. Finally a relaxing display cannot be made without well-being symbols.

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.
After participating in Harrogate Christmas & Gift, Festive will be present at the Spring Fair NEC, taking place in Birmingham from Sunday 5th to Thursday 9th February 2017.
There, we will showcase our new products including home-designed decoupage baubles, app controlled lights, gigantic Santas, ornaments made of paper, and our Festive train. NEC will also be the occasion for us to unveil our exciting themes and trends, such as Nordic Forest, Orelia, and Harmony.
Our friendly and experienced staff will merrily welcome you at stand 2E30-F, H30-J31, F30-H.
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.

Read on for a taster of the exciting new Christmas wholesale range…
Our designs within the Winter Romance theme are led by historic and prosperous Christmases from long ago. Our designers were inspired by the magical and have taken aspects of fairy tales such as mirrors and stone textures along with paintings and photographs to create ornamental and elegant Christmas decorations.
The golden theme has taken on a new warmth for 2016. Think opulence, luxury and sumptuous metallic. Metallic Luxe includes golden bronze, copper, cherry red, rose gold and pure gold Christmas wreaths, baubles, sprays and of course tinsel.
Let Seasonal Sparkle take you away for a frosty, poetic and wintery memory of a forgotten past. A subtle atmosphere of neutral frosted colours is eminently feminine and sophisticated, with lace and delicate rime finishes and injections of glittering gold highlights. The colours in this palette were chosen to invoke the romance of Christmas.
The sophisticated winter’s tale advancing on the traditional Norwegian style is the range called Nordic Light. Unglazed ceramics and porcelain touches feature heavily in this fresh approach to a warm and comforting design. You will see feathery materials, flock finishes and soft textures coupled with Nordic reds, slate grey, glacier blue and fresh white colours.
All that glistens in nature is behind the inspiration for the designs within Nature’s Glow. Aspects of Fireflies, amber and dew are combined with craftsmanship and the wonderful tactile elements of wood, woven fabric and rustic finishes.

Fun, energetic and unforgettable! Merry and Bright features eccentric and affordable Christmas decorations for all the family. The inspiration comes from the true magic of Christmas and embraces everything fun and family orientated.
