Are you hosting a family get-together or soirée for friends over the Christmas holidays? No matter what’s on the menu, a festive table deserves a special touch and attention to detail. Set the scene for a Christmas to remember: get inspired by these beautiful table decoration ideas and create a feast for the eyes at home this season…
A long table featuring bursts of greenery against simplistic wooden elements offers a rustic, back-to-nature alternative to the traditional Christmas setting. Add other natural details such as pine cones, lush garlands, dried rosehip, wood slice centrepieces and evergreen branches for full cabin fever effect.
An eclectic mix of collectibles, vintage treasures and your finest silverware creates a decadent display. Fresh flowers and glowing votives create an elegant ambience, while white china and pops of gold offset the rich hues. Try mixing old favourites and new finds to find your unique take on an elaborate festive table setting.
A neutral tablecloth in off-white or charcoal grey sets the scene for a contemporary take on a Scandinavian setting. The key to this simplistic approach: be consistent and reserved with both your palette and your materials. Soft linens and a few touches of wild flowers or greenery offer a subtle nod to seasonal Scandi style.
Adding a classic tartan runner or tablecloth creates a polished yet homely feel, while you can continue to add a pop of plaid pattern in napkins and ribbons. Typical red and green hues lend their traditional touch and a festive air to any festive table decoration.
IN THE DETAILS…
No Christmas table is complete without the extra little finishing touches that personalise your decor. Pick out your favourite china for the special day, add ribbons, string or foliage to your napkins or experiment with simple homemade elements to spoil your guests.
