if you’re gathering around the dining table. Dress it till your heart’s content. A linen tablecloth in a muted tone can hide a multitude of sins. We love using greenery as a centre piece: think a perfectly selected branch of a pine tree or a conifer positioned in a large glass vase. And candles are a must, there’s nothing better than walking into a well- scented room, and candles will set the mood and keep it going all night long.
