It’s time to be wowed by our beautiful peacock decorations…

Did you know that peacocks have been linked to Christianity and Christmas since the 3rd Century? It was believed that the highly individual patterning on the tail feathers of male peacocks represented the all-seeing eye of God. Well, with the history lesson over, it’s hardly surprising then that the peacock theme is often bubbling around at Christmas. For 2017 however, it’s going to be huge!

      

One of the great things about the peacock trend is that the colours match perfectly with gold. And, as gold is a key staple of any Christmas, there’s no end to the versatility of all things peacock too!

So, what extra-special peacock delights are in store for you on our site? Well, our absolute favourites begin at your door (or at least a sheltered porch door or the inside of your front door) with two fabulous peacock wreaths, both bringing elegance and the WOW factor! Then to your table, with our selection of incredibly beautiful tea light holders, where their jewel colours twinkle in candle light and add a rich vibrancy to festive mealtimes. And, last but by no means least, to your tree. Here, we have an abundance of peacock coloured baubles and decorations, with our absolute 2017 favourite being a delicate glass humming bird that glistens from any branch. Take a look for yourself and see which one’s your favourite!

       

       

And whilst we’re on all things peacock, did you also know that peacocks are in fact a member of the pheasant family and of the three distinct speices of peacock, the green one is excessively aggressive to other ground birds and shouldn’t be kept with them? Quite handy to know, we thought, if you ever ended up owning one! We think we’ll stick to just looking at gorgeous peacock-inspired decorations instead…

Go on, strut your stuff this Christmas with our fabulous peacock collection. Happy Christmas, from all at The Contemporary Home.
