The best silver Christmas decorations to buy this year
Discover our favourite classy and stylish silver tree decorations, garlands and table decorations, from Amazon, Dunelm, The White Company and more!
When it comes to festive decor, sometimes you can't beat the classics - and there's nothing more classic than silver Christmas decorations.
Of course, we love gold decorations for their unapologetic, out-there glamour, but if you prefer your seasonal decor subtle and sophisticated you can't go wrong with silver. And while other popular Christmas colours like gold or red work best in certain colour pairings, we're yet to meet the colour that doesn't go with silver. Blue, purple, green... even less obvious choices like pink look teamed amazing with silver.
To get you started, we've gathered up some of our favourite silver decorations to buy this year, from baubles to garlands, as well as silver table decorations like runners and placemats. Just take a look to see our picks!
The best silver Christmas decorations on the market
Silver Christmas tree decorations
34 pcs silver baubles set
Get your silver Christmas tree-scape off to a fabulous start with this set of 34 filler baubles. Spread the matt baubles (x10) and glitter baubles (x9) evenly across the tree to act as a base, and then add texture and variety by placing the swirl (x5), shiny (x5) and honeycomb (x5) baubles in-between.
Made of sturdy shatterproof plastic, these baubles measure 6cm in diameter. However, the same set is also available with larger 8cm baubles if you'd rather make a real statement with your tree decorations.
Silver Star Tree Topper
We picked out this beautiful antique-look tree topper from M&S's Nordic Craft collection for our round-up of Scandinavian Christmas decorations so it's definitely one to check out if you're looking for a silver Christmas tree topper. It's made of glass that's been treated to give it an aged patina, like a beloved family heirloom.
Four Mercuried Silver Drops
If you've covered your bases, bauble-wise, and you're now on the hunt for a few truly special feature baubles to complete your treescape, look no further than this set of silver teardrop ornaments from Cox & Cox. They're finished with a mercuried effect which gives them a gorgeous aged patina, and the little cluster of pearl and diamond-look detailing at the top is the icing on the cake.

Crushed Velvet Silver Tree Skirt
This crushed velvet-look Christmas tree collar from Dunelm was one of our favourites from our round-up of the best Christmas tree skirts to buy this year, and it makes for a luxurious finishing touch to a silver decor scheme. Made of wipe-clean polyester, it has a height of 25cm, a base diameter of 60cm and a cut-out diameter of 44cm.
Light-Up Present Boxes
You can add all the tinsel, fairy lights and ornaments in the world, but a Christmas tree never looks fully complete to us until it's got presents underneath. However, putting the actual presents on display can clutter up the room - plus, it's oh-so-tempting to curious hands! - so why not try these silver gift box decorations instead?
The set includes three boxes, measuring 20 x 18cm, 16 x 16cm and 13 x 13cm, which light up when plugged in to bathe your tree in a cosy glow. Seen here in silver, they also come in white or multicoloured versions.
Silver Christmas garlands
Light Up Silver Garland
Dunelm is always a fab shout when it comes to adding a bit of affordable glamour to your home, and especially so at Christmas. This 1.5m festive garland is just £20 - made up of silver leaf and twig shapes, it's studded with tiny warm white bulbs to give it a welcoming glow. Requires two AA batteries to operate.
Ginger Ray Silver Foliage Christmas Decoration Garland
We can't get enough of the detailed woodland foliage design of this 1.75m silver garland from Ginger Ray, available at Amazon. It's the ultimate in pared-back and classy decorations that add atmosphere at Christmas but can easily stay up all year round, too. For maximum effect, drape across a mantelpiece or use wire or string to style along a bannister.
Pre-Lit Fir Cone Garland
Going for a Scandi Christmas vibe this year? Add some sparkle to the scheme with this naturalistic pine cone silver garland from The White Company. A total of 100 soft LED lights are nestled in the 1.8m wire garland, which can be woven around a staircase, draped along a mantelpiece or windowsill or even laid across your dinner table to act as a festive centrepiece. Requires two AA batteries (not included).
Silver Christmas table decorations
White Christmas Silver Snowflake Table Runner
With its delicate sparkly snowflake detailing and grey piped edging, this 100% cotton silver table runner has a smart finish that makes it look more expensive than its £15 price tag. And for an extra special touch, for £3 you can add a pack of wooden gold and silver star confetti to scatter across your festive table.
Winter Fayre Snowy Table Tree with Baubles
Mini Christmas trees always make for an elegant table centrepiece, and if you're looking for one that co-ordinates with a silver decor scheme, we've found a perfect option at John Lewis. This table tree stands 30cm tall and comes a set of miniature silver baubles in a variety of patterns and textures so you can dress your mini tree just like a full-sized one.
Stars PVC Tablecloth
Add a touch of magic to your Christmas table with this star-spangled silver tablecloth from Dunelm. It's made of easy-clean PVC, so any accidental spills over Christmas dinner should wipe away with a damp cloth. You can see more of our favourite Christmas tablecloths here.
We love that the pattern is fun without being explicitly festive, so you can use it for special occasions at any time of year.
18 Piece Silver Placemat Set
Create a silver-themed tablescape in one fell swoop with this 18-piece table placemat set from Canora Grey at Wayfair.
