Christmas dinner is definitely the highlight of the holiday for many families, so many of us like to go the extra mile to make our Christmas table look really special. Even if its the same old table you eat your dinner off every evening, a Christmas table centrepiece can transform your tablescape into something truly magical.
Traditionally, a Christmas centrepiece might be nothing more than simple garland of artificial fir branches and pine cones or a candelabra. We've included some classic Christmas table centrepiece ideas, but in our round-up you'll also find some unique and contemporary designs guaranteed to be a talking point at your table this year.
And if you want to make your Christmas dinner extra special with a festive tablecloth or runner, check out our round-up.
Best Christmas table centrepieces on the market for 2022
Mr Crimbo Wooden Christmas Candle Holder
Going for a silver Christmas decor scheme this year? This silver Christmas table centrepiece from Irvine-based brand Mr Crimbo could be just the job, with silver baubles nestling between grey-toned rustic logs and artificial foliage and pinecones with a light dusting of snow. In the centre, you'll find four silver glass candle holders, ready for you to fill with your favourite tealights or winter scented candles.
We love that it's unmistakeable Christmassy while still retaining a pared-back natural look - plus, when not on your dinner table it's just the right size for a window decoration or to sit on a mantelpiece.
Handmade spruce Christmas table centrepiece
A simple and thoroughly festive addition to any table, this handmade centrepiece wreath by Etsy maker ForeverChristmasArt is made to order from pinecones, chestnuts, dried foliage, artificial ivy and white roses. At roughly 30cm across, with an 11cm hole in the centre, it's the perfect size to hold a candle, and would also double as a small Christmas wreath for your mantelpiece or front door when not needed on the table.
Light-up brush trees forest
Gorgeously understated, this natural-looking snowy alpine scene would complement a Scandi Christmas scheme. We love that it comes pre-lit with 60 warm white micro LED lights (3 x AA batteries not included), to add a magical glow to your gathering.
While it's not the cheapest model on the market, this is definitely a centrepiece guaranteed to wow your visitors year after year.
Copper berries LED light-up centrepiece
Candles aren't a good centrepiece option for everyone, especially if you're planning on serving your Christmas feast buffet-style! As a flame-free alternative, we love this delicate wreath centrepiece from Dibor, a Yorkshire-based brand specialising in French country and shabby-chic home accessories. The garland comes pre-lit with LED lights (3 x AA batteries not included), guaranteed to put a magical twinkle on those glittering bronze and copper berries.
Pluto Produkter star spinner candle holder
If simple and elegant is your style, look no further than this small but eye-catching candle holder from Scandi home accessories brand Pluto Produkter, available at John Lewis. The mobile-style strands of plated iron stars hang down above a base that's just the right size to hold a tealight. At £10, we reckon it's an absolute steal! Get more gold decoration inspo here.
Vanthylit white twig Christmas tree with lights
We're seeing more and more twig trees used as Christmas decorations, and it's easy to see why - those spindly bare branches are super-atmospheric, especially with snug Nordic style still firmly in fashion. This sophisticated white birch tree makes is a great choice if you want those hygge vibes at your dinnertable this year - plus, it comes pre-lit with 24 LED lights (3 x AA batteries not included) for added cosiness.
At 2ft. tall, it's perfect for a large table, and can also be used to decorate other corners of your home when you're not at the table - we think it would look fantastic on a hearth.
Christmas table display hoop
Just because you're not a fan of traditional Christmas decor, doesn't mean that you can't find the right centrepiece for you! This stunning contemporary hoop design is handmade by Etsy maker Indipity, and sits atop a real wood slice.
To make it your own, you can choose from a plain hoop or hoop with two hanging stars in a wire colour of your choice - black, silver, gold or rose gold. All options come with a floating candle within a glass bauble to give your dinner table that cosy glow.
