We have sourced a few contemporary ideas to give you one less thing to do this December.
Nothing says cosy and magical like candle-light. Line up these ceramic houses along a dining table/sideboard/window sill and fill with tea-lights to give a lovely twinkly light through the cut out snowflakes. For a grown-up centrepiece on NY Eve, this brass candleholder would look perfect.
The little details set a festive table apart from a standard Sunday lunch. Fill little bags with treats for guests large and small, pop a merry stopper in the wine bottle and wrap a bright napkin in these gold leaf rings for the inevitable spillages.
No Christmas table is complete without crackers. Filled to the brim with the requisite hats, jokes & gifts, these will also look fun and stylish.
Finally, for when the guests start to drive you a little crazy, pour yourself a little tipple of Festive Spirit.
