This Christmas add some sparkle and glamour to your table with a creative and beautiful centrepiece!

There are lots of centrepieces available in stores, but for something personal you can create your own. These ideas are quick and simple and sure to impress guests – without the hefty price tag!

1. Au naturale

Use natural products like pine cones to create a rustic, earthy feel to your decorations this Christmas. Wrap branches with ribbon, feature lush foliage and hang baubles from twigs to create a raw, festive look – all for the price of heading outside and picking up sticks!

2. Edible centrepieces

Your guests can snack on the centrepieces while they’re waiting for the food to be served – use fruit for a healthy alternative, or for a sweet touch, decorate with candy canes! You can even create a Christmas tree using lollies or chocolates.

3. Highlight your creative piece

Use candles to add light and dimension to your centrepiece. Paint jars with glitter or position candles among tinsel, baubles or foliage – think of unconventional ways to include candles to surprise and delight Christmas diners.

4. Jars are in

Jars are hugely popular, with bars and cafes everywhere serving cocktails and smoothies in them for bohemian flair and interior decorators using them for stripped back charm, and now they can have a place on your Christmas table! Fill them with baubles or other decorations to create a snow globe-esque feel to your festive decorations.

5. Ice, ice baby

These colourful and unique ice sculptures will amaze guests and are truly unique. Simply add water and food colouring to balloons and freeze the day before for a fun and creative centrepiece – but be aware they will melt quickly on a hot summer day, so use a dish with edges underneath to avoid leakage.
