Whether you’ve left it to the last minute or just want some inspiration for finishing touches, our seasonal decorating guide is brimming with beautiful buys and good ideas, our second of four schemes looks at decorations with a winter wonderland feel...

1 A starry wreath entwines a quartet of simple white pillar candles… just keep an eye on the flames as the candles burn down!

2 A white-sprayed wreath has a modern rustic feel, and acts as a great foil to a spray of seasonal-style foliage, be it fresh or faux.

3 Give your festive table, sideboard or console a fresh feel with an arrangement of potted herbs and plants in different-sized containers. Add a glow with little candles and tea lights.

4 Create a seasonal chandelier by hanging clusters of pretty baubles from white-painted branches over a table, or entranceway.
