This is my first year to have dinner in my new home, so I am super excited about getting my table styled properly. I am opting for all things metallic, silver, gold’s, copper and a hint of black.

Key to styling any table is a creating a statement focal point – typically a centrepiece. This can take the form of foliage, candles, ornaments, pinecones.

Some ideas How To Create a Statement:

  • Fill a vase or bowl with baubles, pine cones or string lights for an easy but effective Christmas centrepiece.

  • Create a Winter Wonderland scene by filling jars with Epson salts, spare baubles, some fresh cranberries and a tea light

  • Use your cake stand to make a stand out centrepiece, filling it with baubles, pinecones and other festive ornaments

  • Transform an old tray by adding decorations to it, some candles and foliage, this can create a wonderful centrepiece.

  • Use ornaments such as lanterns or Stags 9which I am obsessing about this year) and surround them with pinecones, cranberries and fresh greenery for a festive effect.

  • Finish by spraying your centrepiece with Festive Fragrance and add extra festive candles around your home to transform it into a winter wonderland scent.

These are some table styling options where I drew some inspiration from:
