It’s only November, but it is never too early to start planning for Christmas. With gifts to buy, family gatherings to organise, work parties to attend and houses to decorate, we know it all gets a bit hectic. Let us guide you in creating the perfect dining table, whatever your style, so you have one less thing to worry about. Let’s start by deciding on a theme.
Nothing quite says Christmas like a red and green colour theme. Sometimes extravagance is necessary, and what better time to put this into action than on Christmas Day? These handmade Gurasu De Luxe Wine Goblets in red or green would make a bold statement on your table, while placing beautiful lanterns around would set the tone as a comfortable and inviting affair, which your guests won’t want to leave. Add in as many of your favourite festive decorations and ornaments as you can to really commit to this traditional theme and transform your designer dining table into a traditional Christmas beauty.
Maybe you want to take a step back from your usual traditional Christmas and try something new. Swapping your reds and greens for different bright colours can really modernise your Christmas. With a gold or silver base, you can introduce small additions of colour – the braver you’re feeling, the more you can add in. A bold vase in the centre with an arrangement of wintery twigs or a fairy light display would make an interesting focal point on your table. Also, these Royal Crown Derby Oscillate Couple Plates would really have an impact, their detailing matching perfectly with a gold base coloured table.
Black and White
For an altogether different Christmas day, why not experiment with a classy and sophisticated monochrome theme. The striking contrast between black and white will help create a bold and unexpected scene for your Christmas day gatherings. Mixing and matching these Bib & Sola Marta Glasses will contribute to that dramatic and theatrical atmosphere. The colours of your delicious meal will truly pop when presented on a gorgeously unusual black and white designer table. The Floriture Elegance Black Vase Floral Display would act as an excellent centrepiece, attracting attention, but not drawing too much away from your elegant glassware.
For an understated Christmas mix neutral colours with one statement piece, keeping your glassware and plates simple in order not to distract. For a sophisticated touch, place the Rokos Single Stem Vase with a light coloured flower in the centre of your table. Scatter rich green leaves to continue this natural theme. White candles in a sleek and stylish holder such as this Culinary Concepts Pentagon Candle Holder will help create a beautifully simplistic Christmas dining table.
December can be a dark and gloomy month in terms of the weather, so why not embrace light on your Christmas day dining table? Candles should be the main focal point, alternating their heights and styles to create an interesting aesthetic. The 3 Edge Arm Candelabra would make an excellent centrepiece, while smaller candles could be placed around it. Incorporate glasses and plates that will reflect the light from your candles beautifully, such as these Bomma Stone White Wine Crystal Glasses. The intricately designed Edge Aluminium Leaf Bowl or the Edge Aluminium Leaf Design Bowls will make offering pre dinner snacks a pleasure for both you and your guests.
