Looking for ideas and inspiration on how to lay your Christmas dining table? Make it a masterpiece with our top tips on setting your table below. From cutlery to candles, metallics to multi-coloured, start planning your look now.
No matter what’s on the menu, make sure your table is a feast for the eyes with a beautiful table setting. You can’t go wrong with a classic all-white colour scheme, punctuated with flashes of luxe metallics, from shimmering baubles to sequin garlands. Add a warming glow with twinkling candles and fairy lights, and finally, incorporate natural materials, such as leafy garlands and red berry wreaths, for a snowy woodland vibe.
Merry & Bright
Fancy something a little different? Incorporating different colours is a great way to achieve an eclectic look. Keep your base simple – for example, a white dining table – and add pops of colour here and there with vibrant baubles and playful pom pom decorations for a festive yet fun dining table setting.
Add extra drama and interest to your table by using decorative crockery, statement cutlery and by statement decorations sprinkled across the table.
Hoping to create something a little more decadent? Choose a metal for your Christmas decorating theme and keep it consistent through your table setting, from candlesticks and cutlery to glassware and crackers, for a joined-up and ultra-glamorous look for dining.
Swap the white tableware for black dinnerware to add a glam twist to your theme. Oh la la.
Feeling inspired? Now, go forth and feast!
