It can be quite stressful trying to get everything just right, which is why we have put together a simple guide to take the guess-work out of creating the perfect Christmas centrepiece! The dining room is perhaps the most important room in the house during the holidays, where friends and family come together to enjoy delicious food and wonderful company. Make sure your table lives up to the occasion with these tips below!

1. Pick your colour scheme: traditional red and green, classic silver and white, or regal blue and gold? With the right accessories, you can really show off your creativity and put together a centrepiece that is true to your tastes and personality.

2. Pick your greenery: Greenery is one of the best ways to give your table a bit of festive flair! Poinsettias, eucalyptus, evergreen clippings, holly branches and pine cones are some of the most popular choices for the holiday season. Buying artificial greenery and spray-painting it white, gold, or silver is also a great way to keep your colour scheme cohesive throughout your home!

3. Pick your statement pieces: Candle holders, lanterns, or both? Choose differing heights and sizes for a more visually appealing effect. You can use real candles for an intimate atmosphere or instead try filling your lanterns or candle holders with bobbles, string lights and other festive bits for a glamourous, flame-free alternative.
