Who Are Christmas Creations?
Christmas Creations was established in 2010 by Alex Walters to cater to the commercial Christmas market, providing clients with festive displays across a diverse range of venues.
We have extensive experience creating memorable installations at high footfall locations and iconic venues. Over the last 12 years, we’ve built a reputation amongst clients for delivering the perfect combination of breathtaking quality and classic refinement, while being highly sympathetic to each location’s history and functionality.
How did it all start?
Christmas Creations’ first client was Enfield Council, where Alex previously worked in the theatre, creating a bespoke theme for the Aladdin pantomime, which lead to us being asked back year-after-year to design themed decorations.
Our client list quickly grew to include restaurants, bars, luxury retailers and a range of private clients. In 2012 the UK’s largest casino opened in the iconic Hippodrome building in London’s Leicester Square. Since then, Christmas Creations has provided them with festive decorations, Chinese New Year, Birthday Celebrations and special event decor.
Our reputation has grown over the years thanks to our unrelenting dedication to quality, bespoke installations and attention to detail.
Our decorations feature on a number of the UK’s leading television shows including Eastenders, The Great British Bake Off and 60 Minute Make Over, plus we’ve carried out a number of fun projects with Heart and Absolute Radio, as well as setting the Guinness World Record for the ‘Fastest Time to Decorate a Christmas Tree’ on ITV’s Let’s Do Christmas with Gino & Mel.
Building a Reputation for Quality
The Sky's the limit
Christmas Creations has been privileged to work with some of the UK’s most iconic buildings and landmarks, including a number of brand-new skyscrapers across London. From installing enormous fresh Christmas trees at the top of the Sky Garden (36th floor of the Walkie Talkie building) to lighting trees at the base of the Cheese Grater building.
Other notable projects include installing a 30ft Christmas tree for London Zoo next to the penguins, contrasts against the Christmas tree installed at the beautiful wharf that is Hay’s Galleria in London. The iconic Tower Bridge and the Tower of London have also provided the backdrop to some of the bespoke Christmas trees we’ve installed over the years.
National Coverage & A Diverse Client Base
We work with an ever-increasing range of clients across the UK, from the far north of Scotland, down to the coast of Cornwall.
From towns, cities and BIDs, to shopping centres, retail & leisure parks and hospitality venues, each design is created to evoke the magic of Christmas in line with the client’s specific space and brief to help them boost sales and footfall in the key Christmas season.
Bringing the wonder of Santa to children throughout the UK is something we excel at, creating grottos and winter wonderlands that capture the magic of Christmas. From elves and reindeer, to toys, lights and mountains of snow, we often install overnight to add even more mystery and fun to the festive season.
Most recently as Covid-19 struck and threatened to ruin Christmas, Christmas Creations took this opportunity to see the positives and create a display that provided optimism and highlight those who had sacrificed so much.
The outdoor Christmas Rainbow Trail at Paddington Central, consisted of the seven colours of the rainbow (a symbol of the NHS during the pandemic). Christmas trees each lit with the colours of the rainbow were arranged in clusters, on plinths painted to match. Central to each was a neon word to evoke optimism. The trees provided a backdrop for selfies and the perfect photo opportunity as visitors explored the site. At the heart of the display was an enormous rainbow of baubles intertwined with colour changing lights that started the trail.
To support the local NHS hospital donation points were set up, collecting to raise funds for the dedication of the staff. The scheme received great praise from the client and visitors, as well as being featured on the local news.
Adapting to a changing world
Christmas comes but once a year
Although this might be true for most, Christmas is a year-round passion for us. Our team works tirelessly, dreaming up new concepts and ideas. We regularly visit art galleries, exhibitions and installations to take in as much inspiration as possible.
An annual visit to the Christmasworld exhibition in Frankfurt is the highlight, meeting suppliers, seeing the latest trends and soaking up the festive vibes.
Christmas Creations spends the year planning so when it comes to the installations, we have it down to a fine art, working quietly through the night like magical elves adding the perfect festive touch.
