Style Your Christmas Table Two Ways
With the nights well and truly drawn in and the weather taking a turn for the worse we could all do with a little Christmas lift. The festive season is fast approaching and with it the perfect time to start considering our styling options throughout the house. I want to show you how easy it is to make some subtle changes that will make a big impact to your Christmas styling. That way your home will be primed and ready for all the festive socialising we all love at this time of year.
With a hint of sparkle
When it comes to Christmas, I think we all love a little bit of sparkle. Here are some of our more glitzy items to give your Christmas design that something extra.
Festive Pine Garland
Adding greenery to a table setting is an absolute must throughout the year! During the Christmas period, using garlands as a statement centrepiece down the middle of a table adds a beautiful festive touch. The snowy branches of our Festive Pine Garland are adorned with small pine cones to create a winter forest inspired look in your home. This particular garland is perfect if you are struggling for space on the table but still want to create a beautiful table design due to its delicate design.
When it comes to the Christmas period, I think we all love a touch of sparkle. However, we still want to keep that sophisticated look to our table setting, so we must try not to go overboard. Let's start with a vignette along the centre of the table like I have above, which will undoubtedly create a classy foundation to your tablescape. In this case, I don't want the design to be too overwhelming, so I've opted against a centre piece in order to create a welcoming and open atmosphere during dinner.
Antique Silver Bauble
The purpose of our tablescape is to create a stunning dining experience for our guest, it's about the all-round package not just the food. Our Antique Silver Bauble will bring some extra luxe to your table setting, whilst the crackle glaze will add a timeless touch. Simply tuck the ribbon into your napkin and voila, it's the little details which will carry a long way and ultimately create a beautiful overall setting and experience.
Glass Beaded Charger (Set of Four)
Our much loved Glass Beaded Chargers are an old favourite and never let us down. They most certainly add to the overall look of elegance we always strive with festive design. The simple yet sophisticated pattern will instantly elevate your tablescape. Here we have used them in conjunction with the vignette of Dove Candlesticks, they will compliment each other beautifully on your table.
'Wine Time' Bottle Cooler
What's a festive dinner without a little tipple? Not only does our Wine Time Cooler keep your Wine chilled but the beautiful neutral design allows it to fit into any table setting, no matter your style orientation.
Traditional Rustic Table Setting
If you're envisioning a traditional, aged, rustic table setting for this Christmas, the following tablescape design will take you through the festive period right up to New Years Day.
Crown Candle Holder on Foot
Our Crown Candle Holder will instantly add rustic elegance to your dining table and is quite simply the perfect centre piece. The warm but textured surface helps to create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere to your dining experience. It creates a focussed yet elegant centrepiece, without dominating the space. Allowing you to see your guests freely across the table, which can sometimes be difficult with grander pieces. A vignette of 3 pillar candles is a great way to create some romantic ambience.
Small Crown on Foot
Add some more traditional antique elegance to your festive table with our Small Crown on Foot. Similarly to the large crown, again it helps to create that cosy welcoming atmosphere, but in a more subtle way. Arguably more versatile than the large centrepiece, you can dot the Small Crown on Foot throughout your table scape. I love using them in addition to the large size as it tends to create a sort of crown theme throughout the scape, keeping the look connected.
Our Linen napkins ooze rustic and are a gorgeous way to achieve a stunning arcadian look. Here we have beautifully layered them with our Beaded Glass Chargers. Get creative with your napkins and fold or tie them into shapes, if you have kids they will love helping with the table-wear origami. They perfectly complement hard surfaces and tabletops, helping to add balance and neutrality throughout the home.
White Serving Platter
Our White Serving Platter will instantly add sophistication to your table setting this festive season. The perfect size to serve a generous amount of all your Christmas favourites, from vegetables to tasty mince pies. They add a great practical element to your table without conceding on style, an absolute must have.
Salt and Pepper Mill Set
Lastly, our beautiful white Salt and Pepper mills are another one of those must haves. Again these are an essential from a practical perspective, but also are the most amazing way to complete and finish the look. So versatile, they can be used in conjunction with any design, thanks to the neutral colour.
Hopefully you try to recreate these simple yet beautiful table settings in your home this festive period. The great thing is, you can mix and match most of table accessories throughout the year to create a completely different tablescape.
