Christmas Day | Dressing your Table

Setting a gorgeous table that sets the tone for your Festive Celebrations is no easy task, yet it doesn’t have to involve a huge amount of time or effort. Here’s a few simple ideas that will really add sparkle & atmosphere to the day…

Classic Celebrations: With decorations and presents introducing so much colour at Christmas, classic white tableware can be a calming element. Add to this simple backdrop a few chrome or gold decorations and even invest in the latest gold cutlery to complete the look. Simple yet incredibly stylish.

Embrace Nature: On a rustic timber table or a crisp linen cloth, a runner of silver eucalypt leaves dotted with proteas creates a native festive look you will love. Pair this with white crockery for a more formal celebration or rustic earthen wear for a more relaxed celebration.

The Festive Colours: You can never go wrong with Red, Green & White at Christmas. Suspend Red and white decorations above your table to complement a classic candle centerpiece. Look to add a sprig of Holly to your place settings, or even better a small wreath of rosemary as a napkin ring or place setting. Looking for a little more Luxe? Substitute a metallic finish for white.

Winter Woodlands: Perhaps more suited to a White Christmas yet so inviting all the same, a woodland feel ads a European touch to the classic Aussie Christmas. Placemats of Timber rounds, combined with pinecones, needles and candle votives of various sizes will create the perfect atmosphere.
