It won’t belong before Christmas is upon us again. What are your plans? Are you going to be entertaining family this year? If you are you may enjoy our suggested Christmas table flowers in this post.
Good luck to you if you are. Christmas is a wonderful time of year but can also be pretty stressful with all the things to think about, remember, buy and organise.
So if you do have a lot of family or friends over for Christmas dinner, they you’ll want to put something special on. Yes the menu you create and the food you prepare is of course important. You want everything to be just right. You want the people that attend to talk about your Christmas dinner for years to come.
You’ll want to put in the same amount of effort into your Christmas table layout and decoration as you do into the menu you’ll prepare.
So how can you do this? What can you do to make a big impact?
Let us help you with some of our Christmas table decorating ideas.
First you will need to consider what theme you will use for Christmas day. There are many different colours that work well for Christmas table settings. From crimson reds, golds, silvers, purples there are many colour themes you can choose. You tablecloth is going to be your canvas, your background material. The colour of your tablecloth is going to hugely influence your choice of colour for your theme. Reds for example will look better on a neutral colour of white, cream and maybe even gold. Contrast that for a second with using a black table cloth. Doesn’t quite have the same effect does it?
So remember to choose a nice neutral colour for your tablecloth. There are also a number of different styles and shapes that you can use. You can cover all of the table or have it drape across the table in a diamond shape.
Once you have chosen the main colour theme, you can look at bringing out specific tones of that colour with your tableware and accessories. Think napkins, crackers, placemats, floral arrangements. There is so many ways to customise a Christmas table for maximum impact.
We hope that’s given you some food for thought and we also hope you put some thought into your food!
You don’t want a beautifully laden table with a Christmas dinner that lacks taste!
