Decor Guide: Timeless Christmas Table Settings

Christmas decorating

For many of us, December is when we rediscover our inner festive planner: the house decked out in the prettiest of colours, the candles in the windows lit every evening at dusk, Christmas songs on repeat ... and making plans for the all-important Christmas feast.

Rediscover the joys of festive entertaining with our easy to follow tips below ... 


1. A wonderfully laid-out dining table is what really sets the festive scene in any home. Crisp and natural table linens and napkins, interesting and impressive dinnerware, a carefullly considered set-up and placement are a real must. Add natural and metallic decoration pieces to your table for added impact.

2. It's not just about the dinner. Create a truly enchanting setting for your festive feast by draping cosy sheepskins and snuggly blankets over seat backs that will bring instant warmth and conviviality to the setting.

3. Let there be lots of light. Creating soft and evocative festive lighting can be an art form in itself. A sea of candles, from tealights to pillar candles candlesticks, will produce soft pools of flickering light that add to the magical atmosphere.

4. Keep it simple and natural. Make or purchase garlands of natural foliage and greenery, and use them as table centrepieces and hang them along furniture, walls and windows.

This is our edit of our favourite festive styles ... 


1. Nordic Noel: Try a combination of monochrome black, white and grey geometric tableware and accessories, add a touch of matte metallics, untreated wood and natural elements.

2. Rustic and Refined: A pared-down take on the traditional green and red Christmas look, it incorporates rustic-look ceramics and some metallic accents.

3. Sparkling Silver: A little sparkle, a little shimmer, lots of satin greys, silvered and smoked glass and sophisticated lighting it's what this look is about.

4. Gold and Glamourous: An opulent but understated look when paired with dark green and greys, black and natural tones.
