We’ve gathered a selection of our favourite centrepieces and added a few helpful hints for setting your theme around them.

 

Candle centrepiece

Serenity in Design

There is nothing quite as beautiful as candlelight, especially at Christmas, and that’s why these table settings are so wonderful. Dim the main lights and let soft candle light illuminate your Christmas dinner, bringing to mind images of open fireplaces and carol singing.  Add glass beads, wine glasses and decorative mirrors to really make the most of the festive glow.
Best theme: An intimate Christmas dinner followed by curling up on the sofa together.
