5 days until Christmas…..
And if you haven’t given any thought to your Christmas table yet, don’t fret! I have a board full of beautiful, simple ideas to help.
Christmas should be about enjoying time with family, soaking up the magic, drinking, eating and creating memories so keep your jobs list to a minimum and use my three top tips to create a magical Christmas table.
- Use a tablecloth or runner to add colour and texture to your christmas table. It’ll make it feel more special and creates an easy foundation to build upon.
- Create a centre piece or runner. I love simple greenery, filled with candles and twinkle lights. Ivy and eucalyptus are my favourite, adding a magical touch to your table. Ensure you use different textures and height here. Different types of greenery mixed together, glass and metals, small tea lights and tall candlesticks. It’s up to you how much you want to add and keeping it simple is no less beautiful.
- Think about a simple place setting for your guests, napkins, place names, a small sprig of greenery or table favour. All these touches add to a beautiful festive table, elevating it from the ordinary. This year I’ve got a small jar of chutney for the men and small candle for the women and will box and ribbon these for each table place.
