Christmas Countdown – Décor Ideas

October 25, 2017

Tis the season to be jolly! Well… not quite, but here at Vancouver Christmas Market HQ, the countdown is already on.

If you find yourself as excited for the holidays as we are, you will no doubt be ready to ‘deck the halls’ long before the Hallowe’en jack o’lanterns are packed away.

And if your cherished Christmas decorations are in need of a refreshing, then look no further.

The Vancouver Christmas Market opens its doors in just four weeks time, and will soon be brimming from top to toe with stunning holiday treasures.

With more than 75 huts offering handcrafted ornaments and authentic German trinkets, Vancouver Christmas Market has the perfect pieces for your precious collection.

Whether you’re a traditionalist who adorns your tree with bright white lights and matching baubles or one who takes a more modern, minimalist approach to decorating, Vancouver Christmas Market has something for every décor lover.

Discover these amazing finds at the market this year.

Herrnhuter Sterne


Brighten up your home with a Herrnhuter star, which dates back to 18th century Germany. These beautiful illuminations are handmade and come in red, blue, orange and yellow shades. We recommend hanging these carefully crafted lanterns in a window to welcome visitors during those dark winter nights. The warming glow will be enough to entice anyone in for a glass of delicious glühwein.

 

Hartmont Candle Company

Welcome holiday guests into your home with a delightful yuletide aroma. Hartmont Candle Company offers a host of luxuriously spicy scents that will get you in the Christmas spirit. Made from 100% soy wax, these sumptuously scented candles are hand painted so no two are the same.

 

Käthe Wohlfahrt

You may have guessed it – we’re obsessed with candlelight at Christmas. Nothing says the holiday season quite like the atmospheric glow of a flickering flame. We’re especially fans of Käthe Wohlfahrt’s traditional schwiboggen, also known as candle arches. Carved lovingly out of up to six different kinds of wood, these eye-catching decorations feature an intricate, two-dimensional Christmas scene. Sit these rustic beauties on your windowsill or fireplace as a festive centerpiece.

 

The Nutcracker House & Lauscha Glass Ornaments

Nutcrackers are a long-standing staple of Christmas. According to German folklore, these symbolic little dolls were given as keepsakes to bring good luck to families and protect their homes. The Hoffmann company from Dresden, Germany carry a wide variety of the festive favourites. Each exquisite figurine has a unique story behind it. Nestle them under the boughs of your tree or place them at your front door as a charming entryway feature.

 

Little Handcrafts



Make your season merry and bright with Little Handcrafts’ homemade decorations. With their handmade felt pillows, stockings, wreaths and much more, you can fill every nook of your home with holiday cheer. All products are 100% hand stitched with high quality wool. Placed on an armchair or bed, this comfy pillow emblazoned with the word ‘Noel’ perfectly captures that cozy Christmas effect.
