The seven new trends cover all bases, with something for everyone's taste.

1. Snowscape trend

Apparently, a white trend is always the biggest hit with the brand's customers. Think snowy white and icicle-style decorations, pretty ballerinas and frosted glass, with a delicate hint of eucalyptus green.

The secret to making your tree Instagrammable

Each of the new trends at John Lewis & Partners features a number of oversized decorations, from massive mushrooms to large neon lit stars. Dan Cooper, Christmas Buyer at John Lewis & Partners, explains: 'The introduction of large decorations this year has been driven by Instagram. People love Instagramming their trees and its a very difficult thing to do when you have lots of different, small decorations. One of the tricks is to use something larger to create a focal point to anchor a photograph. All of our oversized decorations are very light, so they're very easy to hang on a tree.'

What's more, every store will be offering special Treetorials from mid-October. These are free for customers to attend and don't need to be booked in advance.

Special free leaflets will accompany each of the Christmas decorating trends in-store explaining the looks and showing you how to recreate them on your tree at home.
