Perfect for the dining or living room table or mantelpiece, a tray filled with simple home decor items, Christmas ribbon and a few stable Christmas ornaments is a simple and quick way to tie your festive look together – the key is not to go overboard with the decorations. Here are three ideas with the same wooden tray to show how each look can be easily interchanged to suit different tastes.
Using classic red and green immediately points in the direction for a merry and charming looking Christmas table centrepiece. Stick to three or four core elements and start with the feature item – in this case the wooden Christmas trees.
This look is structured in height and is created with a few tastefully featured Christmas decorations to hero the wooden Christmas trees. Holly sprays are laid out around the tray with well placed scented candles in candle holders for safety.
Christmas decorations doesn’t have to be restricted to a traditional colour scheme, especially when you’re going for a minimalist look that’s not too Christmassy. This is where the combination of gold and aqua blue is destined for a coastal and eclectic effect that still looks sophisticated past the new year.
We spray painted a few clear bottles gold and spread them out along with blue bottles in a similar style. Fill in the gaps with short pillar candles (so they don’t steal the limelight) and complete with a glittery magnolia – chic!
Consider giving rustic and natural elements a go this year with the slightest touch of glam. Place wooden ornaments (perfect if you have leftover tree decorations) at opposite ends accompanied with cinnamon sticks tied with a silver and white Christmas pick across the middle of the tray. Finish the look with tealights in crystal candle holders and jingle bells in a metallic finish to bring all the elements together.
Whichever option you choose, each look will feature the right touch of festive and look gorgeous from every angle!
