Show your guests they’re in for one hell of a party by welcoming them with a kitschy cool wreath and lashings of balloons. A quirky flamingo ramps up the fun.
A colossal chandelier is a jaw-dropping alternative to a traditional tree, while an abundance of lustrous stars makes the light dance across the silvers and blues.
Jzuzh up your tree with a playful hit of full-on glamour – an electric blue feather boa and tongue-in-cheek decs nod to the trend.
Dress your staircase to thrill with shimmering garlands of sparkling discs, rainbow tassels and a fluffy feather trim. A stylish bench invites guests to linger before venturing upstairs…

A super-glam bar, luxurious, gold-dipped stools and poppy neon sign make for serious nightclub nirvana.
Iridescent paper decs and super-soft furnishings conjure up a glittering chill-out zone for some well-earned relaxation.
A glowing tree and colour-rich baubles create a dazzling display against a glitzy mirrored wall. The rock star piano makes a fitting finishing touch.
This outré, glam-rock-inspired table setting will have revellers itching to chow down so they can bust some moves on the dancefloor.
A dramatically decadent feathered centrepiece and ceiling of giant bouncy balloons make this a clubby but intimate nook for a gossipy catch-up.
