The halls are decked, the gifts lovingly wrapped (almost) and your Christmas menu is shaping up to be a culinary winner. There’s just one item lingering on your festive to-do list that needs sorting – the table. This four-legged friend is where the Christmas crowd will gather to enjoy a show-stopping feast, share stories and tease Dad in his star-spangled Christmas cracker hat. Suffice it to say, creating a festive mood is going to make or break your efforts.
You have a choice here. You could just pull out the dusty reindeer placemats (trimming off the frayed edges as you go), or opt to take your cues from our stylists and sprinkle some quality festive cheer all over your table and give it the Christmas love it deserves.
See ya Rudolph and co.
Up the ante with slick, contemporary silver. For a more formal, polished result include a two-piece table setting complete with entree and dinner plates. Finish off with a metallic silver bauble or ornament placed on each guests plate and a decorative napkin holder – toast to the host!
