5 Centrepiece Ideas for Your Christmas Dinner Table 


5 Centrepiece Ideas for Your Christmas Dinner Table 


‘Tis the season to… start thinking about ways to decorate your dinner table! No Christmas dinner table is complete without a centrepiece. 


If you’re bored of all the ready-made, shop-bought, identical centrepieces you see each winter, it’s time to think outside the box… Get creative and get putting something together yourself, with inspiration from Pretty Little Home!


For all the keen Christmas decorators out there, here are some ideas for a gorgeous and unique centrepiece for your dinner table.  


  1. The gift of light


Create a dreamy glow at your dining room table with our glass present jars filled with fairy lights. 


Surround the jar with winter ferns or holly, for a pop of colour, and voilà – an easy festive centrepiece!


(For an autumn-themed table, swap the present jar for one of our pumpkin glass jars and the holly for pine cones or faux autumn leaves.)

  1. Get things off the ground


Make a statement with your Christmas table decor by raising it off the table. Introducing different levels to the table adds interest and dimension.


Use one of our raised wooden boards or beaded trays to bring height. On top, place a row of candles in our glass, silver snowflake candle holders and wind ivy around and in between each for a pretty Christmassy look. 

  1. Set the (festive) scene


There’s something truly enchanting about the glow of internal lights from a distant house, especially in winter. Artists have taken inspiration from the old, tall canal houses of Amsterdam for centuries and as a result, gorgeous ceramic Dutch tea light houses were born. 


Use our collection to recreate the magical glow of winter towns in miniature at your table.


A set of three positioned on a platform (such as one of our beaded boards) and flanked by some winter plantage, makes for a subtle and gorgeous wintery scene.  

  1. Go pretty and minimal


…While we’re on the continent, Christmas decor doesn’t always have to be bold and gold, it can also be minimal and muted, with a nod to Scandinavia. 


Create a cute and contemporary centrepiece with long, white candlesticks in four of our patterned, glass candlestick holders. Opt for uniformity with two complementing designs – i.e., two of our single heart holders mixed with our black dot holders


You can’t go wrong with candles in winter – they create warmth and ambience in any setting. Click here for more ways to cosy up your home for winter.


  1. Repurpose snacking stations


Filled with sweets, nuts or crisps, our ceramic and glass snacking stations are cute additions to any party. 


But they also double up as excellent Christmas table centrepieces. Fill each cone with winter foliage (think: ferns, holly, spray-painted gold or silver twigs) and/or small baubles or beads in metallic, festive shades. Then wind fairy lights around and in between them. Suddenly you’ve a completely unique piece for your table.
