christmas table centrepieces

These can be as simple or extravagant as you like. A simple Christmas centrepiece decoration could some candles on a silver tray, with some fake holly leaves around it, or wine glasses turned upside down with some green leaves inside and tea lights on the top (bottom?) of the glasses. Or you can go all out and have a full on wreath, a garland (depending on the size of your table) or a Christmas village scene – it’s totally up to you, but just be mindful that the centrepiece tends to set the theme for the whole Christmas table.

One last tip: You probably don’t want all of these on your table or there won’t be any room left for you food, pick your favourites or a theme and stick with that.

Happy Christmas Table Decorating Ladies and Gentlemen!
