No matter what’s on the menu, a Christmas table deserves a special touch. Add sparkle to your table settings with a festive centre-piece, crisp table cloth, fancy tableware and accent ideas. Set the scene for a Christmas day lunch/dinner to remember with these 5 festive Christmas table decoration rules.
Focus on Centre pieces & flower vases: Add greenery and coloured candles for a festive centrepiece in your dining table. Glass vases in a cabinet or on the table itself (only if you have enough space) are just like the LBD in your closet: They’re easy, versatile and timeless.
Pay attention to accessories & accents: Your dining table will suddenly look festive with lots of romantic soft vibes, with wooden accessories bearing heartfelt messages and greetings, flickering candles, crystal wine decanter and bowls of dry fruits. Keep it classy by adding champagne flutes in bold metallic colour.
Pick traditional festive colour palette: Choose a theme colour and stick to it. It doesn’t always have to be white or red. Be bold this year with a theme combining white and gold colours. For the chicest festive table-scape, white and gold colour combo is certainly en vogue. Mix the traditionally festive colours of red and green to maintain the cute and cosy, country-style touches for a warm Christmas look.
Start by dressing the table in plain white tablecloths for a neutral base so that you can get creative in accessorising it. Add metallic charger plates, royal cutlery and a pretty crystal candle holders for a natural theme and stack plates with either matching or contrasting colour to add interest. Finally, create a name holder from threading nuts, herbs and berries into a garland if you have a large family to join you for Christmas, I skipped this as its only two of us here.
Go for glamour: Mix gold metallic and soft tusser silk in cream and gold tones for an effortless yet luxe Christmas table setting. Vintage floral tableware contrasts perfectly with warm gold. Choose a royal cutlery set with a classic design to really show the beauty of the vintage-yet-modern touch and match to gold striped napkins, gold rim wine glasses and golden details on the table runner.
Crack those Christmas Crackers: After hours of peeling vegetables and basting the turkey, the act of sitting down for Christmas lunch feels like a momentous occasion. And what better way to kick-start festivities than with pulling open the Christmas crackers? After all, an explosive burst of confetti adds an extra level of excitement to your meal. Christmas crackers come in lots of assorted colour combinations and designs, from sparkling glitter, to shiny gold and classic festive pine needle print. Choose the one that will go with the theme colour you have chosen.
