Linear tables offer the chance for impeccable symmetry theming for Christmas. Table runners can be clumsy when seating high numbers of guests, however this is where strings of Christmas table lights are ideal. Choose pliable and discreet micro fairy lights to weave on a journey down the centre of your table. They're the perfect canvas for customising your table with some natural decoration. Contrast metallics with soft greens and you'll be able to easily get the look. Dotting tea lights & Christmas candles as mini focal points can help bring some sparkle too.
Whichever way you choose to dress your Christmas table, try to illuminate on a few levels, this helps to make it feel cosy and brings everything together. Have a focal point in the middle of your table that’s not going to get in the way of conversation. Mini Christmas trees or bell jars and vases filled with micro fairy lights would be our centrepiece of choice. Squeeze in the sprouts and sparkling wine. Big family dinners need lots of space for a full festive spread sometimes hanging lights from above can be the perfect solution. Balance with low-level lighting such as Christmas candles or fairy lights entwined with foliage, easily woven through your table decorations. You can also utilise table lamps for Christmas so you can use them all year round too.
