1. Silent night
There’s nothing quite like having a cosy winter’s evening in by candle light. Create your own centrepiece by gathering a few candles and decorating with a little bit of fresh greenery. Alternatively add the scent of Christmas to your home by adding orange peel, cinnamon, rosemary or even the Christmas nut mix with a candle inside a hurricane lantern. Meadows and Byrne has a gorgeous array of candles and candlesticks for an atmospheric scheme.
2. Jingle bell jars
Bell Jars are a stunning way of creating your very own ornamental lighting and look truly magical. Battery powered string LED lights, such as Terrain’s Stargazer lights (similar ones are available from Etsy) create an ambient glow against the light-reflective surfaces of the glass jars. A collection of different sizes and shapes can look quite the statement when arranged together – place them on sideboards, on the mantel or along your Christmas table.

3. Deck the halls
It’s not just your tree that needs Christmas spirit! Festoon your hall and entryways in fairy lights and decorative string lights to give a beautiful, sparkly welcome. Copy these looks from Nordic Makers and House To Home to get that Christmassy feeling the moment you walk through the door.
4. Feast for the eyes
The centrepiece for your table on Christmas day is going to set the mood for the food. You can go simple and elegant or pull out all the stops. Simple and elegant only needs a few baubles in colours that match your scheme, interspersed with a few tea lights. But if your dining table needs the WOW factor, hanging arrangements will do the trick. LED lights mixed with baubles and a bit of greenery is all you need. Just secure with tacking nails and be sure not to pierce any wires. Check out Vosges Paris and House Doctor for more inspired ideas.
