How to make a table decoration for Christmas

Follow our step-by-step guide to making a sumptuous home-made display for the Christmas table.

On the festive dining table there’s rarely much room for flowers. Feasting platters and glasses rightly take up most of the space. It’s therefore important to choose a slim container that sits neatly in the centre of the table, filled with a garden-style arrangement overflowing with foliage and blooms. Ideally use a low, shallow container so that the overall height of the arrangement doesn’t block people’s view.

Rather than traditional reds and greens, we’ve chosen a warm, golden theme that works well with any gold accessories, woody tones and warm candlelight.
