The dining table sets the scene for everyone’s most adored Christmas Day tradition – feasting. It’s also where we gather with friends and family to crack bonbons, share stories and raise our glasses to the year that was. A themed tabletop that reflects your styling aesthetic will elevate the dining experience for your guests and add to the festive fun of overindulging with loved ones. Discover how to style your dream tablescape for a chic Christmas that’ll go down in the history books. 

Play with prints

Don’t feel restricted to just Christmas-themed crockery – anything that evokes feelings of jubilance and celebration will tick all the boxes for the big day. Playful prints and brightly-coloured serveware will bring your festive feast to life, especially in alfresco settings. Decorate with bold fruit, foliage and even baubles for a positively joyful tablescape.

Striking florals and organic centrepieces add a

contemporary festive touch.

Keep it classic
