22 Dec 2015 Christmas Tables
Christmas table settings are essential for a large family meal on the big day!
As everyone knows, the true centrepiece of any Christmas day is the dinner. And the centrepiece of the dinner is the, well, centrepiece.
If you’re looking to make an impact, you can’t beat a striking colour scheme. Silvers and golds will create a classy, classic feel, while purples, teals and blacks will establish a more modern aesthetic. Crisp white table linens and crockery will add freshness and look great when paired with gold candlesticks and metallic ornamental touches. If you want to add a hit of formal glam, consider tying fabrics or linens around the chair backs.
You can have fun with Christmas tree baubles too, either hanging pedant-like over the table or scattered among the tableware. Indeed, for a more dramatic effect combine hanging baubles with vintage ornaments, elegant candelabras and rich colour palettes. There, your very own winter wonderland!
If you’re looking for something a little more pared back and sophisticated, minimal tableware and black and gold accents should be just the thing. Of course, even the most chic Christmas table isn’t immune to some good ol’ Christmas spirit – just add a clutch of attractive crackers and fun party favours. After all, it is Christmas!
