The Perfect Christmas Table Setting

THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS TABLE SETTING

Like most of we have spent so much time (and money) looking for those perfect gifts and sometimes the christmas gatherings at the house have being forgotten? Possibly it's just that the old table linen and plates just isn't quite a fresh this year.

Let us help and inspire you with a few little tips on how to get the perfect table setting this christmas.


Theme

It's always a good idea to start your table with a theme, possibly modern and go with lots of white & silver pieces or more traditional with hints of red. 

Stacking up your plates upon your table is great for adding dimension

Centrepiece

You need a focal point to your table but sometimes it can be the simplest of things, a few candles that have being stored in the cupboard or a few cutting from the winter garden, be sure to make it stand out.

Maybe you are starting to grow your spring bulbs, why no incorporate them in or even better got the wrath hanging on the door? Grab it down and pop a few candles in the middle.

- keep center pieces low so you can still engage with all your guests. Add small bowls filled with nuts and winter fruits.

Lighting

Adding candles to your table setting will always give it a much softer, cosy feel which really sets the mood. Plus it will distract you friends away from the fact you may not have cleaned you chandalier. If candles are not your thing then adding the traditional Scandinavian star lanterns hanging above give real wow factor for a nordic feel.
