Seasonal Table Centrepieces

I recently wrote a tutorial article for the online furniture and homeware specialist Wayfair about making a seasonal centrepiece – I was so excited to be working with them and their lovely products. You can read the full tutorial HERE. In my research for the post though, I came across lots of gorgeous centrepieces for your Christmas dinner table, all of them based around trays. It is such a novel and cute idea and makes for easy transport if you’re taking it to someone else’s home or just need to move it when the turkey comes out.

Top Tips for Making a Seasonal Centre Piece

  • Before you start, think about a colour scheme – I like the classic green, red and silver for Christmastime but go with what works for you and what will also match your dining room.
  • If you don’t have access to a tray, a large plate could look equally as good.
  • Using a tray shape that is different to your table shape will make it stand out and look really striking. For example, use a circular tray if you have a rectangular or square table and a square tray if you have a circular table.
  • If you use an artificial wreath in the tray for the foliage, it makes a lot less mess and means it can be used year after year. There are some really natural looking ones available these days.
  • Scented candles and hurricane holders and candles make really great features for the centre of the tray.
  • Another cute look, particularly for Christmas, is using a lantern and filling it with baubles, like in the picture above.
    • If you opt for this look, make sure you use baubles that are a similar colour theme but are all slightly different – makes for a really striking, textured look.
  • Finishing off your table, to really set off your centre piece, use a complementing table cloth or runner.

Do you tend to make your Christmas table fancy? I haven’t often done so before but certainly will be this year.
