Day 5: Festive Table Decorations

FT hero

We’re bringing you 12 days of festive entertaining tips for each of the twelve days of Christmas, from ornaments to edibles, cards + wrap crafting and more. Today’s spotlight is on: festive centrepieces! Enjoy… FT20

We adore a little merry entertaining at any time of year. But Christmas provides a theme for inspired table decoration. So we’ve searched out some stunning ideas to make your fine dining affair/festive soiree/ho ho hoe-down stand out from the rest!

We love the traditional look, but restricting yourself to holly or a red + green colour palette is a little old school. Turn up the high-voltage hues or rest with Mother Nature with these gorgeous vignettes.
