How To Dress Your Christmas Table Settings!

How To Dress Your Christmas Table Settings!

Create super stylish Christmas table settings and wow family and friends this festive season. From traditional red and green to luxe natural linens, trying mixing it up.  

Inspiration on a plate…

RED & GREEN POLKADOTS

Add a touch of quirky to traditional red and green with a mix of alternating coloured polkadots. Tassels and personalised place settings add a personal touch (and ensure family arch enemies aren’t seated together!), while checks add interest so your guests won’t go dotty!

NATURAL LINENS WITH A COLOUR POP

Pull out your finest silverware for a luxe linen setting in naturals with whites with a splash of yellow. Add three tier fringing to your tablecloth for that uber special ‘Midas Touch’ with decorative tassels.

GREEN & WHITE STRIPES

Line up, line up! Seat your guests all in a row with green and white stripes. Pom poms make a cute table decoration while napkins tied neatly in Christmas ribbon or braids add finesse. Try tassels, available in a range of colours and styles, if tying the knot is beyond your commitment skills!
