What Houzz contributors are saying:
Think left-fieldWho says wreaths have to hang on doors? They can look amazing as a crown over a dining table. Hang yours as you would a pendant light – low enough so you can see it, but not so low that you have to peer round it to see the person opposite. Be careful with any candles lit beneath it – and make sure it’s well secured, so the turkey doesn’t end up wearing it.
…and hang them in different waysThis wreath doubles as a centrepiece for the table. Hung from a skylight, it’s beautifully top-lit, and a few select baubles reinforce the Christmas theme. As well as providing an elegant focal point for the dining area, it has the additional advantage of keeping the tabletop clear for dishes of food.
Big up a wreathWreaths look so beautiful on the front door, so why not bring one inside, too, and use it as a dining table decoration? Here, a wreath is cleverly used as a centrepiece, hanging over the middle of the table. You could also easily hang a wreath on the wall to one side of the table, or use it as a centrepiece on the table itself.
Reach for the wreathsWreaths are unmistakably festive, but don’t dominate a room, so they can be the perfect way to add a subtle touch of holiday cheer to your design scheme. Hang them above a dining table, as shown here, to create an unusual centrepiece that doesn’t take up precious space on the table for the big Christmas meals.
