Some of the best memories are made around the dinner table at Christmas, and with the table at the centre of it all why not make it something to remember. Make your guests want Christmas at your house every year!
Place friends, family and of course food at the heart of festivities with your gorgeous Christmas table decorations. Make sure you make the most of this opportunity to show off your skills in all areas from cooking to styling a magical table setting to really impress your guests. A great place to start is to choose a theme that you like and put your own personal twist on it. We have highlighted a few of our favourite themes for you to be inspired by.

Bring some of the outside in with a nature-themed table. From pinecones and chestnuts to pine tree twigs and faux cranberries. If you have an exposed wooden table this style would work great for you. Ditch the tablecloth and show off your beautiful table. Centre the table with a long garland centrepiece going from one end of the table to the other and then stagger tall candles and candelabras or mini pinecone trees wrapped in brown burlap cloth down the table. In the centre of the table get a large glass trifle bowl and fill it with pinecones, walnuts (still in their shells), chestnuts, cinnamon sticks, dried orange slices placed around the side of the bowl and top with faux cranberries. You can also scatter the faux cranberries and mini ‘snow’ dipped pine cones down the table amongst the garland. For the place, settings use burlap cloth as the placemat and then top with white dinnerware. Top the plate with a long cinnamon stick and a pine tree twig and then the name card on the top or tied to the pine. We can just smell the natural Christmas scents coming from this table.
