Make your fireplace magical this Christmas with flickering candles, seasonal greenery and an abundance of sparkle – we show you how with our exclusive video guide.
The cosy heart of the home all year round, it’s easy to transform your mantelpiece into a Christmas corner with just a few festive touches. Whether you opt for a rustic, Nordic-inspired theme or a sparkling, elegant display, it’s the perfect update for the season.
This year, we’ve launched four brand-new Christmas videos, showing you how to achieve the perfect white Yuletide in your own home – from the tree to the table. Get inspired with the video, then simply follow the steps below to create a magical mantelpiece. Just add a roaring fire…
1. Mirror, mirror
Eyes will naturally be drawn to the mantelpiece mirror, so make it the focal point of your display. Start by hanging a stunning wreath over it. For maximum impact, tie two shimmering decorations securely to the wreath – our mercury etched baubles will glimmer beautifully in the candlelight.
2. Sparkling garlands
Wonderfully versatile, our beaded garland can be used as your Christmas table centrepiece, or artfully arranged along the mantelpiece for a stunning display. Our glamorous garland is pre-lit and comes complete with a battery pack, so you don’t have to worry about plug sockets.
3. Light and scale
Add a touch of stylish scaping with candle and tealight holders (we like three or four of varying sizes dotted along the mantelpiece.) Our bestselling mercury holders are hand-painted and come in dipped and fluted designs – simply add our battery tealights for a long-lasting glow.
4. A festive flicker
Lastly, arrange our oversized lanterns around the hearth, lit with our pillar candles for an ambient glow. If you have a real fire, our beautiful handmade log basket is a must for storing kindling, while adding an inviting, country-cottage feel to your living room.
