Read on below for our 5 top tips for dressing your Christmas table this year.

1. Consider your space

Is there enough room to seat all your loved ones comfortably while they tuck into their Christmas dinner? Or is it time to finally invest in that new, bigger table and gorgeous matching chairs? After all no one wants to be sat on the emergency wobbly chair on Christmas Day.

2. Chose a theme or colour

Whether you choose to match your tablescape to your Christmas Tree or decide on a different colour all together the possibilities really are endless. Traditional reds, golds and greens, monochrome with splashes of silver or neutrals with burnt orange and rust to really make those place settings pop, embrace the fun and experiment!

3. What crockery to use?

Do you have a crockery set that only comes out on a special occasion or are you planning on sticking to the old faithful set? Either way try adding a fancy placemat, stacking your plates and if fancy napkins folds aren’t your thing, grab some ribbon and a christmas bauble for some added instant festive flare.

4. Go bold with centre decoration

Long gone are the days of 1 or 2 candle sticks sitting in the centre of your Christmas table, now is the time to go all in with table runners, lanterns, extra baubles, the sky is the limit! Let your imagination run wild and why not try and bring the outdoors in by laying some evergreen festive foliage across the middle?

5. Create a full dining scene

Now that your table is fully set ready and waiting, what about the space above the table? Giant baubles hanging from the ceiling will be sure to create a true festive setting.
