5 Ideas For Decorating Your Christmas Table

Are you planning to spruce up your Christmas table this year?

Whether it’s your first time entertaining the family or you simply fancy a change, we have plenty of inspiration for you in today’s article.

We’ve included seven fabulous styles for you to browse below:

1.  Pink Champagne Glitter

If opulence and glamour are two words that strike a chord, this year’s champagne glitter trend should be right up your street.  When planning your Christmas table, choose warm metallics and soft shades of pink.  Look out for sparkling accessories that really make a statement.  And remember, there’s no such thing as too much glitter!

WE LOVE:  This champagne gold garland (pictured above).  It features small LED bulbs intertwined with delicate glittering leaves.  It is 1.5m in length, making it perfect for placing on the table. It costs £29.99 from Lights4Fun.co.uk.

2. Nostalgic & Traditional

Create a warm and nostalgic feeling this Christmas by opting for a traditional theme of sumptuous berry reds mixed with deep leafy greens.  Shun anything modern and trendy, instead look out for classic Christmas motifs, such as holly and ivy.  We love these traditional-style crackers and napkins (pictured below) from talkingtables.co.uk.

Finish your table with a festive floral arrangement.  A lovely red poinsettia should do the trick!
Top tip:  tartan will bring this theme together.  For a simple yet effective place setting, tie a piece of tartan ribbon around your napkins and cutlery.

3. Gold Wonderland

Take inspiration from the three wise men by bringing plenty of gold to your Christmas table this year.  Choose gold ornaments, cutlery and crockery for a really indulgent feel.  We recommend steering clear of glitter and sparkle, this theme is far too sophisticated!!

4. Rustic Nordic

Create a Nordic-inspired Christmas tablescape by using items with a natural feel, such as linen, fresh berries, cinnamon sticks and foliage.

Use plenty of white in your decorating and add a splash red where a hint of colour is required.  You’ll achieve that perfect cosy-yet-rustic ambience Nordic design is famed for.

5. Ice Queen Chic

Take your cues from Frozen’s Elsa this year and mix shades of cool blue with snow white and glittering silver to create a tablescape fit for an Ice Queen.

This theme works particularly well with twinkling silver star ornaments and glass baubles inspired by icicles.

6. White-On-White

Create your very own winter wonderland by opting for a white-on-white Christmas table this year.  This is probably one of the easiest themes to achieve without much extra cost to you (it simply requires what most of us have in our cupboards already: a white tablecloth and white crockery).   Dress your table with plain candles, snowflake confetti and a vase of white flowers to achieve this theme.

7. Deliciously Dark

Looking for something a little different this year?  Why not opt for a ‘deliciously dark’ theme?  To create this tempting tablescape, mix greys and blacks with dark jewel tones.  Add a touch of burnt gold to lift the palette and create a hint of warmth (well, it is Christmas after all).
