Gingerbread World Christmas Decorations
Welcome to the Gingerbread World! This is the place to be if you are looking to make the most of the gingerbread theme in your decorations this year. Even if you are not going for the full theme, a touch of gingerbread style is always a welcome addition to the Christmas decorations. It evokes the feeling of warm and cosy kitchens just as a batch of biscuits have come out fresh from the oven. In this case, the creators aren't chefs but are talented designers. We have a wide range of gorgeously gold gingerbread style decorations from the highly skilled hands of people like Gisella Graham, whose seasonal decorations are always magical.
Festive gingerbread decorations
The earliest account of a gingerbread biscuit in the shape of a human comes in the 16th century, when Elizabeth I, queen of England, surprised her company round the table with gingerbread biscuits in the shape of her dinner guests. The connection with Christmas probably came some time after this, and it should be no surprise that the gently warming spice of this biscuit should have found a home in the midwinter celebrations. It warms the body and the soul, and now is along with mince pies and mulled wine part of that collection of treats which summons the festive mood.
Christmas tree decorations
We think that a finely crafted gingerbread Christmas decoration does the same thing for the body and for the soul. These heartwarming decorations even feature icing details to make them look extra realistic. There are gingerbread and icing style decorations for the tree in the shape of angels, stars, horses, teddies, and of course the classic gingerbread man. These look so incredibly lifelike that you will have to make sure you tell everyone about them before they see them for themselves, otherwise people will be trying to have a munch!
Festive tea light holders
As well as Christmas tree decorations, you will also find some festive gingerbread house decorated opaque candle holders. The snowy opaque glass is decorated with an adorable gingerbread house scene which circles the outside of the glass. Pop a tea light inside and watch this merry scene glow. These will create a wonderfully cosy mood in those winter evenings in the runup to Christmas!
