If you’re anything like me, once Bonfire Night and Halloween have been and gone, you know Christmas is just on the horizon … and I couldn’t be any more excited!
We talked before about decorating your living for Christmas but one of the things I take great pride in is ensuring that the Christmas decorations on the dining table look fantastic. Here are a few ways in which you can ensure yours does too:
I don’t believe that everything has to match perfectly, but it’s important to at least have a theme for your decorations. For example, you could choose a traditional colour scheme such as gold and red or silver and purple or, if you have fans of Frozen in your family, how about silver and blue!? (And if you want to know how to throw a Frozen themed party, why not read our earlier blog post about it?
The centerpiece of a Christmas table is what brings the whole thing together. Whether that’s flowers or candles or, even better, both together. Christmas is a nice time of year to spend a little time perhaps creating something unique by combining both flowers and candles and maybe intertwining holly and red berries throughout.
Tealights always look beautiful on a dining table, but at Christmas you can really ramp up the glamour by buying sparkly gold or silver tealights. They really do add a touch of extravagance to an otherwise ordinary table. One idea is to run a length of fairy lights from one end of the table to the other and intersperse them with table settings, flowers, sprigs of holly etc. One thing to remember, if you’re worried about naked flames around children, you can buy electric ‘candle’ lights that look quite similar but are much safer.
