Melissa Wilding shares her top Christmas decor ideas


Bethlehem Lights pre-lit treeI’m so excited and nervous to be writing my very first blog post today, so bear with me a little! You may have seen me over the years bringing toys, gifts, and home décor to QVC, but today, I’d like to formally introduce myself.

My name is Melissa Wilding and one thing you should know is I love to shop, whether it's for clothes or home décor items, I just love seeing what’s new and how I can make my space, pretty, fun and festive. That being said I’m a huge fan of all things QVC.


Fun for the kids

MagformersNow my kids and their friends are my testers and if they like it, I have a good feeling that yours will too!
The Flash Pad is probably one of the most sought after toys in my house and not only by the kids. Just try to take this out of the hands of my husband – I dare you!

Another kid favourite and definitely Mum-approved is Magformers - they are the absolute best for keeping your kids engaged so that you can put dinner on the table.

They have a permanent spot in my purse for when we go to dinner and I need to keep the kids occupied. Plus, I really love watching how creative they can be.  

Deck the halls…

I love to decorate for every season, not just Christmas, but I do think that’s where I get a little crazy! Lights, decorations, colour; it’s what makes my house mine. I’ve brought some of my favourite goodies from QVC US over, and we will be offering them this week.

WreathWe have something so special from Bethlehem Lights – it’s simple, yet elegant decorating at its finest! Our Today's Special Value wreath, tree or garland pre-lit display is the ultimate solution for decorating. 

Simple and easy to put up, the lights are already strung for you and they feature the stunning look of fresh cut greens – perfect for holiday photos in front of with no ugly cords to hide, (or have the cat or kids play with)! Just pick your place and put it up – it’s that easy and looks fab!

One of my other favourites is the table runner. I like to switch my table runners every couple months as it's such an easy and simple way to make your room look new and fresh.

It adds a splash of colour and what's even better with Bethlehem Lights is that you get the lights built in with it. Who doesn’t love a bit of ambience!

Snow globeA favourite decoration at our house is the good old fashioned snow globe, but wait until you see what Bethlehem Lights has done for the  snow globe.

Imagine this, no more turning it upside down! A tiny quiet motor does it for you! Hallelujah, that means no more…"Mum, the snow's not falling anymore, can you make it snow" coming from my kids' bedrooms!

The holidays for me mean a lot of things, but to name a few; decorations as soon as Thanksgiving (November 27th here in the US) comes, I pull out the many, and I mean many boxes of decorations and start putting them all up, music, laughter, family, friends and lights.

When it comes to a house you can never have enough ambient lighting, and when it comes to Christmas you can never, ever have enough fairy lights, the more the merrier, the brighter the better!

Thanks for reading, I can’t wait to talk to you, and here’s wishing you a fun filled, beautiful Christmas!
