Christmas Table Decorations for the Perfect Day

Make it the most special day of the year by ensuring your Christmas dinner table setup is the most festive that it can be!

From candles to centre­pieces, we’ve put together some inspi­rational ideas that will help you bring together your ultimate Christmas dinner table! When you’re all ready to serve up the food you’ve been prepping & cooking for hours, make sure you get the presentation nailed down by comple­menting your hard work with these festive Christmas table decorations

Christmas Table Runners

To get things started, every festive centrepiece needs a great Christmas tablecloth. For this, you can either keep it clean and simple with elegant designs & colours… or go all-out with loud and colourful patterns, shapes and designs. If you’re looking to have your Christmas table decorations complement each other, we recommend choosing your Christmas table runner design in-line with the design and colour scheme of your centrepiece

Christmas Table Centrepiece

Arguably the most important part of the festive décor, the Christmas table centrepiece is what will tie everything together into one beautiful display. It’s going to be the focal point of your meal, so if you’re stuck for ideas and inspiration, deciding on a centrepiece before anything else can be a great idea. This way, you can base your future décor ideas on the centrepiece to make sure all elements work well together

Christmas Candle Holders

With the low winter light, it will probably be dark by the time you all get sat down for the big meal. Christmas candle holders are a great way to bring that warm and inviting festive feeling to the table. Even if you choose not to buy or light any candles, tall candlestick holders are a great addition to any festive dinner table. Even if they’re standing empty, they tend to stand out and can easily become a focal point of your Christmas dinner table décor. On the other hand, if you want to keep things simple or minimalist, you could go for a low-lying tea light holder instead.

So you’ve got the food and the basic décor... but what about the Christmas crockery? After all, you can’t have a meal without them! Although this is one of the more practical jobs to sort out, you can have a lot of fun deciding on what plates and bowls you’re going to use for your Christmas dinner table. If you’ve already decided exactly what food you’re going to be serving on the day, this can be a pretty straigh­tforward decision, as you can then decide to buy only what you’ll need and use.

Christmas Wine Glasses

When everyone gets sat down to enjoy their dinner, be sure to cater for the adults around the table with some exquisite Christmas wine glasses.
