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.
Choosing what knives and forks to have as part of your Christmas dinner table decorations is another simple process if you know what bowls and plates you will be using! Again, whether decide to go for a full-on festive theme or a simpler set of silverware, the most important thing to remember is to buy enough for all your guests… and a few extra pieces for serving the food and in case of emergency
Christmas Fairy Lights
Whether you’ve already made a decision whether to have festive candles or not yet, Christmas fairy lights are an easy and cost-effective way of bringing a warm atmosphere to the table. There is a great deal of choice out there, so we recommend finding a design and style that ties in with all your other Christmas ornaments.
One of the most memorable parts of the big day, Christmas crackers are a fun way to either start or finish up the meal. With so many different shapes, sizes and designs out there for you to browse, you can easily find something that works well with your Christmas dinner table display. You could even opt for personalised Christmas crackers as a finishing touch! If you’re looking to bring everything together nicely, we would recommend pairing your Christmas crackers with the napkins.
Make sure not to forget Christmas placemats. This fun and festive element of your Christmas table décor will make sure that you don’t scratch your table surface. Not only that but having placemats will reduce the chance of getting hard-to-clean stains on your Christmas tablecloth. After all, placemats are a lot easier to clean!
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. You might want to think about buying Christmas champagne flutes that match with your tumbler glasses if you really want to finesse your décor. However, you can go as expensive or inexpensive as you like and you may prefer to look for cheaper Christmas themed wine glasses rather than a luxury set.
Christmas Cake Stands
So you’re all finished with the main course… now it’s time for the cake! As this will be a central part of your Christmas dinner table decorations in the middle of the table, you might want to ensure that your centrepiece matches with your Christmas cake stand. Even if you don’t bake a large cake, having mince pieces and treats on your cake stand is a great idea too
