Pia's favourites: paper Christmas decorations

This year, I'm a big fan of paper for my Christmas decorations, whether it's snowflakes to hang up or the tree itself. It's simple, it looks good and it has so many advantages.

Paper and cardboard Christmas ornaments are my big favourites in 2023. Playing it low-key, they work just as well with a traditional style as they do with a contemporary look. And they're so light you really can hang them anywhere.

Although they come in many colours, I like them best in white and the sober shades. These shades emphasise the natural material and the pleating. Each item is a real eye-catcher. I'm really looking forward to decorating my flat! Here are my favourite decorations.

Fir tree decorations

When they're white, these decorations look like snowflakes. And, whatever their colour, they are as luxurious as glass or ceramic baubles. The best thing about them is that they don't break when they fall to the ground. Because, yes, I do sometimes drop a ball or other ornament when I'm putting up my tree. After the holidays, paper decorations fold up easily and take up little space in a box.

A paper Star of Bethlehem

Paper stars sit proudly at the top of the Christmas tree. Whether they have cut-outs or not, their three-dimensional shape adds the finishing touch to the decoration. White stars look like a large snowflake that has landed on the tree. Whatever their colour, they are so light that they will never bend the tip of the tree.

The fir tree that doesn't lose its needles

A paper tree will never replace a natural tree, but it's a good complement. You can't decorate it or light it, but it easily finds its place on a shelf, windowsill or table. Its cylindrical shape and structure are irresistible. Wherever you place it, this lightweight tree won't require you to get out the hoover to get rid of the needles that have fallen to the ground. What's more, it requires no support or decorative covering. And after Christmas, it folds up simply and takes up very little space in your cupboard.

A great alternative to natural or plastic Christmas trees.
