Let’s face it, making a beautiful Christmas table setting is half the fun of hosting a get-together at your home.
We love making tables that are unique and memorable and breathe simplicity. To help make Christmas a little less stressful and achieve a table setting which will make your guests say ‘wow’, we’re sharing a few more tips from our creative friends…
Top tips on decorating your Christmas table:
I try to keep most of the food off the table by making a buffet nearby. This way your guests can fully appreciate the linen, the decorations and the styling!
– Megan Morton, stylist
Put some wholesome love on your table by adding a bit foliage from your garden (or street) as a centrepiece. Use quality linen napkins and ceramics on the table. Buy once, buy smart.
– Shelley Panton, potter
You can be simple but dramatic – hunt down a big fruit-laden branch from an apricot or plum tree. It will look beautiful as a centre piece for a Christmas lunch.
– Rebecca Trevitt, botanical artistry
Focus on the things that you love the most and that make you happiest, make them the priority. Favourite food, wine, cocktails, snacks music and movies are the centre of our entertainment and we love to kick the day off with a bottle vintage champagne.
– Mr Richard, PR and Events
My approach is to always go for natural. Small details found from either around the garden or neighbourhood give such a personal touch. I tend to go ‘gardenia mad’ this time of year. I usually scatter the glossy gardenias down the centre of the table. Simple and fresh.
– Kara Rosenlund, photographer
I love bringing nature in – pine, berries, oranges. I always add candles and focus on keeping it simple.
– Paul Lowe Einlyng, Sweet Paul Magazine
Have fun this year when decorating your Christmas table and perhaps try something new!
