Traditional elegance Christmas table

Make Christmas dinner a rich sophisticated affair with glamorous black glassware, gold shimmering decorations, understated foliage and plenty of
champagne.

Stylist’s tips

• Go for atmospheric lighting – arrange glass votives over the
table and at intervals around the room to create a glowing atmosphere. Create an elegant centrepiece by bunching an array of glass candlesticks together.

• Use a sparkly runner – swap your usual tablecloth for a shimmery runner trimmed with glittering beads.

Decorate the mantelpiece with evergreens such as eucalyptus – it sets the scene and smells heavenly.
