Once you’ve chosen the perfect dining table and decided on your place settings, the key to creating the perfect dining space is with a stunning centrepiece. A stylish centrepiece will bring together the whole table and add a decorative finishing touch to really wow your guests.

From bold, statement looks to chic and subtle centrepieces, there are many ways to dress up your dining table. Here are our five favourite centrepiece ideas for your dining space.

Candle Holders 9 Link Copper Candle Holder

Candles are a classic choice for a dining room, adding a warm and festive glow to a room. Create a simple but striking centrepiece for your dining table with a candle holder such as the 9 Link Copper Candle Holder. Featuring nine round copper holders and textured glass, it is sure to increase the ambiance and style of your dining space; simply add your favourite tealights to complete the look.

For smaller dining spaces, the Cornbury Voitive Candle Holder is elegant and equally as atmospheric.

Floral Displays

Purple Orchid Pot

There’s nothing better than a beautiful bouquet of flowers to brighten up a dining table, but fresh blooms can be hard to maintain, especially over the festive period.

Create a colourful centrepiece that’s easy to care for with an artificial plant such as our Purple Orchid Pot. It looks just like the real thing but can be enjoyed all year round.

Statement Bowls

Java Black Cage Bowl

Choosing the right centrepiece for a small dining table can be tricky, but we have the perfect solution. A statement bowl such as the Java Black Cage Bowl will add a decorative touch to your space without overpowering it. A bowl centrepiece will look great all year round, but can be filled full of baubles for an extra festive display at Christmas.

For a more contemporary look, the Copper Metal Bowl makes a stylish addition to any dining table.

Vases & Bottles

Olieros Glass Vase

If you’re on a budget, creating the perfect centrepiece doesn’t need to cost a lot. For an inexpensive yet effective display, try grouping together a collection of vases and bottles to create an eclectic look. You can even add fairy lights inside for a twinkling effect.

The elegant cut glass Oeiros Vase in green will make a beautiful addition to a dining table.

Metallic Trays

Gold Tray

Last but not least, keep your centrepiece simple and sophisticated with a metal tray. Our Round Gold Tray is the perfect piece for a contemporary dining room and can be styled with decorative objects and items to suit your decor.
