Setting up a table that you want to look wedding level special? Our
tip is to let a centrepiece take centre stage. We invited Stockholm
stylist Amanda Rodriguez for her take on three beautiful ways to
start.

1. LET NATURE LEND A DECORATIVE HAND. An easy way to start a centrepiece is to collect natural elements that are in season. Budding flowers, branches and leaves all work nicely. For this summer inspired version Amanda combined bare branches with glass bottles for a light, airy look.

2. HANGING CENTREPIECES DON’T JUST CREATE A WONDERFUL AMBIENCE, they’re also a good space saver for small tables too. Amanda’s take combines a bouquet of greenery with hanging lights, but paper decorations or fabric could work here too. Just be sure to hang it high enough so diners can see each other across the table.
