3 Ways to create a Festive Chandelier this Christmas

We can't believe its a week until Christmas!!! This time next week we'll be sat around the table or in front of a roaring fire, surrounded by family & friends. We spend hours dressing the tree, ready for our Christmas visitors, picking out our favourite baubles, matching colour with décor, complimenting our finishes with tinsel and pearly beads draped along ornaments and frames. It's the time of year to get your creative juices flowing, the sky is the limit at this festive time and it doesn't stop at the tree. Chandeliers and light fittings should be included in the festive cheer, already a focal point in the home, suspended over a dining table or a centre piece in the lounge, they are a great feature so why not make them stand out even more...

Pinterest is a great way to find design & inspirational blogs during this festive period, we especially love the festive chandeliers that pop up around this time of year so we have put together some of our favourite finds together with our own products. Whether you're an Antique Angel or an Elaborate Elf, there's lots of ideas to suit everyone's taste this Christmas.

Antique Angel

If your décor is more traditional and classic with gold and brass finishes and country style  furnishings then opt for more traditional festive decorations, pull together lots of gold and red ribbons and baubles, choose earthy berries, leafy garlands and mix with gold spray finished pine cones for a more traditional feel. Our Litecraft Barcelona 5 Light in Antique Brass and Litecraft Spiral 3 Light in Antique Brass Ceiling Light are perfect fittings to create this traditional feel.

Elaborate Elf

If you're fanatic about all things festive, your the one on the street with the biggest crystal chandelier and a real tinsel fairy then cram your chandeliers full of tinsels and baubles. Choose bright golds and silvers to reflect from the crystals, the more the merrier. Litecraft's Madonna 5 Light Chrome Chandelier is perfect for all those 'Elaborate Elves', it features an ornate polished chrome frame with stunning crystal effect hanging pendants, beading and sconces that sparkle and shine when lit.

For extra festive fun why not choose from our Litecraft Almond Crystal Range and add more colour to your chandelier, the Crystal is available in Champagne, Smoke Grey, Red and Black and comes in three different sizes.

Contemporary Christmas

If you're more of a simple soul, preferring a more contemporary feel at Christmas then opt for some medium size baubles, hang them from each arm from alternating lengths of ribbon, choose fresh white ribbon and clear baubles. Our Litecraft White 3 Tier Champagne Flute Glass Chandelier is a great contemporary piece and would look perfect above the dining table on Christmas day, hang 3 or 4 baubles from the bottom tier for a festive twist.
