Brilliant Bordeaux Decorating Theme

Give your traditional Christmas display a luxurious touch with Balsam Hill’s Brilliant Bordeaux decor. This collection includes festive decorations in deep wine hues and glittering gold accents that are sure to dazzle your guests.

What Colour is Bordeaux?

Bordeaux is a rich, deep red hue with maroon or even purple tones. The colour is identical to burgundy and takes its name after the Bordeaux wine-growing region of France, famous for its dark red wines.

This shade is best paired with refined tones that highlight its richness, like emerald green and gold. Choose this colour combination to complete a vintage-style theme or bring a sophisticated twist to the classic Christmas colours of red, green, and gold.

How Do You Decorate with Bordeaux Christmas Decor?

Capture the understated grandeur of a Brilliant Bordeaux decorating theme with Balsam Hill’s wide selection of burgundy, gold, and green Christmas décor. For added visual interest, play with a variety of shapes, textures and finishes, such as velvet, brocade, and glitter embellishments. Follow our tips below for a picture-perfect display.

  1. Choose the Right Tree – As the focal point of Yuletide celebrations, it’s best to start your Christmas decorating with the perfect tree. Select an artificial Christmas tree with deep green needles to highlight the striking red hues of Bordeaux-inspired décor. Our incredibly lifelike BH Fraser Fir features lush, dark green tips that blend well with the red and gold tones of our Brilliant Bordeaux collection.
  1. Spread out your baubles – Begin decorating your Christmas tree with basic globe baubles in wine red and gold. Then, add trimmings with different shapes and designs to create depth. Our hand-crafted Brilliant Bordeaux Bauble Set includes burgundy and gold glass balls with matte and glossy finishes. It also features burgundy eggs with delicate gold patterns and elegant finials with glitter accents. Place small baubles on the tips of the branches and hang larger ones deeper within the foliage for beautiful layered look. Our Brilliant Bordeaux baubles are available in standard and jumbo sets, allowing you to scale your decorations to fit the size of your tree.
  1. Add interesting details – Make your tree stand out with a few final touches. The glitter and pearlescent beads of our Icy Teardrop Bauble set will lend wintry sparkle to your centrepiece. For a timeless charm, drape vintage garlands or ribbon around the tree using the wired branches for support. Complete the look with a gold star or angel tree topper and burgundy Christmas tree skirt. Pick a burgundy tree skirt with embroidered details or hand-applied beads and sequins to polish off your decorations. Other options that suit this theme include a burgundy velvet tree skirt, or a burgundy and gold tree skirt in similarly plush fabric.
  1. Spruce up outdoor spaces – Extend the festive theme to your outdoor areas with a few key pieces. Adorn your front porch with wreaths and garlands that feature the same deep red and glittering gold trimmings as your tree to create a consistent look. Lastly, hang outdoor Christmas lights over your porch railings and banisters to set an enchanting night-time scene.
