Christmas day is nearly here! Create a Christmas feast your family and friends will never forget with an elegantly styled Christmas table. Follow these five simple steps to prepare yourself for the big day.
1. Pick a Theme
When preparing your Christmas table, keep to a style for a consistent look that coordinates with ease. You can match the colours to your Christmas tree or try something entirely different, the choice is yours. We’ve used inspiration from our Luminous theme for this Christmas table featuring metallic details and neutral tones. Read our 3 Magical Christmas Looks for more styling ideas.
2. Start the Night Before Christmas
Avoid last minute panic on Christmas morning and be prepared in advance the night before. Begin placing your Christmas table decorations out to see what you’ll use on the day and ensure you have everything you need. You can grab any extra chairs you’ll require, iron out your table cloth and decide where your guests will be seated.
3. Layer, Layer, Layer!
Once your tablecloth is placed on your table, lay out your charger plates or placemats first, then your cutlery and drinkware. Charger plates add instant elegance and are available in a range of colours to suit your table style. Sit your festive plates and bowls on top and you’re nearly all set. We used the Xmas Tree Dining Range with silver trims and a playful tree design.
4. Introduce Festive Details
It’s time to decorate your table and make a statement! Add a botanical garland down the centre of the table and combine glistening candles with decorative baubles for a magical style. We used our Mongolia Leaf Stem and LED Pine Garland for added sparkle.
5. Add a Personal Touch
Make your guests feel extra special with personalised details. Create individual hand written place cards for a welcoming addition to your table and complete each place setting with bonbons that match your colour scheme. We love our gold Ball Snowball Flake Place Cards.
Your Christmas table is now complete! Invite your friends and family over for an elegant Christmas feast.
