As Christmas fast approaches we like to find ways of creating eye catching table ideas that will help to bring the whole family together for endless hours of conversation. Whether your re-using last year’s decorations, opting for brand new ones, up-cycling or mixing the old with new, we have tips for achieving the right ambience.



Our 1st tip for creating your statement table is the use of candle light! It’s always a good idea to arrange your candles in clusters, and whats more, by using a decorative candle holder you begin to set a tone for your space and impose a style statement at your dinner table. Not only will this capture the attention of your guests but will also prompt conversation. You can find this Hubsch Set Of Three Gold Hexagon Candlesticks at Trouva. (Image: Sarah Akwisombe)

For a more grown up crowd, combine a rustic/faded linen table cloth amongst more lavish decorations for a stylish, laid back vibe. Hang decorative lighting above the table, and enjoy an intimate ambience with more flicker of candle. (Pippa Jameson Interiors)



Create a table centrepiece with left over decorations and if your considering new lighting for your space, now is the time to get out and make that purchase. There’s nothing better than having an array of lighting around your dining table for that instant Christmas feel. (Image: Ideal Home)
