Christmas centrepiece ideas for your festive table

Whether you are planning an intimate dinner with your immediate family this Christmas or you have invited several guests, d├ęcor is always important. One of the most important parts of decorating your home this festive season is the Christmas centrepiece that you will place on your table. Here are some excellent ideas.

Traditional

If you are looking for a traditional Christmas centrepiece, you can’t go wrong with a red, white and green display. Red and white flowers paired with rich, green foliage is just what you need. You can also include accessories like berries and flower picks to brighten up the flower arrangement even more.

Elegant

For something a little different, less traditional and more on the elegant side, you can choose something a bit more simple. This type of Christmas centrepiece should include fewer colours and textures. Keep it as simple as possible with a bouquet of white blooms (hydrangeas, carnations, lilies or roses). Add some lovely foliage and perhaps a touch of nature in the form of branches or pine cones if you like. You could even use some silver accents for a touch of glitz.

Minimalist

Sometimes the best approach is a simple one and your Christmas centrepiece is no exception. Instead of your usual lush bouquet, you can create a minimalist-style tablescape. You can use mason jars or even cocktail glasses to create a display that varies in height and makes use of just a handful of basic decorative items. String some fairy lights along the centre of the table, scatter a few pine cones and add a tray that includes a decorative trio in the middle of your table. This trio can include three jars or cocktail glasses that vary in height. Each of which holding different seasonal decorations. One may contain dried sticks while another is full of mini pine cones and the third holds a candle.

These are just a few of the main options for your Christmas centrepiece this year. You may have tried at least one of these ideas in the past which is all the more reason to try a different design this time. A fresh design is just what everyone could use from time to time. Christmas will take on a fresh new feel without losing those sentimental roots.
