Deck the halls: How to set the perfect Christmas table
20 Nov 2020
This year Christmas might be a little different so a little bit of extra thought and inspiration can go a long way to make your home the perfect place to entertain family and friends this Christmas without spending a fortune.
Set the perfect Christmas table
Be true to your Christmas style – are you obsessed with natives? Laying some festive flora such as Pohutukawa in the centre of the table creates a beautiful organic feel...and is right on trend with this season’s homewares! Team with earthy green and red napkins with touches of rattan tableware and you have created a unique natural Christmas setting. Try Bed Bath N' Table and Duck for tableware, napery and accessories.
Dreaming of a white Christmas? A crisp, clean Summer setting can be pulled together with fresh white linen and napkins. Add small accents such as a new set of gold cutlery from Farmers for a bit of bling.
We recommend setting your table the day before so you can enjoy the process and eliminate any last-minute stress.
Set up a cocktail station near the table so your guests can make their own Christmas spirits. Make sure you have lots of rosemary and grapefruit on hand to create an Instagrammable Christmas gin and tonic!
Personalise everything! There is nothing more special than knowing someone has been thinking about you. Personalised name tags, monogrammed glassware and little individually curated gifts at each place setting are all beautiful, memorable touches.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Boxing Day sales and specials on our website. Purchasing your Christmas decorations a year ahead will ensure you have everything ready to go next time!
