Are you organizing a Christmas lunch or a festive meeting? Preparing for a festive feast can be especially stressful, and as a result, table setting can often be the last thing to think about. Rather than throwing away old Christmas dinnerware while guests are knocking on your door, consider planning your ideal Christmas table in advance.
From baubles to garlands, here are some Christmas-inspired table decorations you can get inspired by.
Red santa claus
Splashes of red are a simple yet effective way to signal that, yes, you know it’s Christmas, but no, you’re not a fan of glitter, snow globes, and mini statues. Red glassware and plates are a great way to incorporate a little Christmas spirit into your table. Red lilies or chrysanthemums make a stunning floral centerpiece to tie everything together.
White and gold
A heavenly marriage: white and gold. While pulling out the white laundry isn’t always the best idea at a family Christmas lunch, a crisp white tablecloth makes gold cutlery and Christmas decor beautifully stand out. Christmas tree statues and golden garlands like these make a great centerpiece.
If traditional Christmas decorating isn’t your style, consider taking a more contemporary approach to decorating your table, playing with texture. Bring neutral linens and free native garlands and arrangements to create an Australian coastal atmosphere.
If you like green and red balls, candles, and garlands, then a table like this might be right for you. Taken from the rich traditional colors of Christmas, this festive garland stands out from the more understated tableware.
