Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree…

How lovely are thy branches…

No matter how hard you try and slam on the Christmas breaks, time is whizzing by. Christmas will soon be upon us!

For those that love this time of year; Christmas is full of magic, jingle bells music, gorgeous sparkling glamour, tantalising rich tastes, well controlled tinsel, sensational smells, amazing colours, fabulous fun, lots of love, laughter and plenty of mistletoe!

These are the days when a lot of people live their very best lives!  Great food in the fridge and treats under the tree. The heating on full and brand new linen on the beds. But the one thing that is truly characterised by the word Christmas is …


Christmas decorations capture the feeling of wonder and excitement. They make Christmas feel magical, real and just around the corner (whether we like it or not!).

Hotels for many are the real stars of the season. They host people’s holiday trips and Christmas parties. Traditionally, the hotels’ Christmas decoration were a source of inspiration and a HUGE topic of discussion.

Many Hotels and celebrities assign the task of their festive decorations to specialised teams. Teams who plan for months in advance to create a truly magical setting. Once seen you can’t forget the iconic images shared by the super-talented Jeff Leatham. Including those amazing images of the Four Seasons Hotel’s and of course his top celebrity fan, Oprah.

Here at the New Continental Hotel we also have a specialist Christmas Team of our very own Festive Elves…

Christmas decorations are the ultimate implementation of luxury and glamour, and staff here at the New Continental Hotel this year are super excited! We are all working together, each department tasked with dressing our beautiful hotel and trees ready for Christmas.

Everyone Benefits…

The dark nights are definitely here! So, brightening things up with fairy lights, star-topped trees, decorated garlands and supersize baubles is just the ticket to loosen those winter time blues!

Christmas time glitter and sparkle is the perfect festive tonic to help put a smile on everyone’s faces. Staff this year aren’t only excited to be part of the Hotel Christmas, to see guests enjoy the decorations and loose themselves in Christmas. It’s also a time where by working together on the decorations, means that every department will be bonding whilst decorating!  And maybe indulging in a mince pie or two!
