Christmas decoration isn’t just all about the tree! Here are my three different ideas for your Christmas Day table arrangement!
🎄 scandi noir Christmas table
This table arrangement is about borrowing from nature and utilising the seasonal palette. As a centrepiece, place a layer of green moss down the middle of a bare wood table. Strew with pine cones, oranges and whole walnuts. Intersperse with different sized pillar candles for a nonchalant ‘undone’ feel.
Keep your Christmas dinnerware simple and let the centre-piece shine. Loosely knot raw linen napkins in the centre and place onto plates to finish off the relaxed yet elegant vibe of this cosy contemporary table.
Tip: Store the fresh evergreen in the fridge before use.
🎅 rustic Christmas table
This is your more traditional table.
Break out the Mason jars and put them to use as Christmas table decorations. Fill them with small bunches of holly and pine greens. Perhaps add a few sparkly woodland creatures dotted about.
Details like forest green candles in brass holders, red napkins, small vases of seasonal winter blooms all add rustic charm. Check out Berts home store for their trad Christmas decs!
Tip: A little origami napkin-work can add an instant dose of seasonal cheer even if you have left decorating the table until the last minute!
☃️ minimalist Christmas table
Instead of going full on ‘Christmas’, think a chic modern minimalist table in tones of white, black and grey for a grown up and sophisticated vibe. Use a white linen table cloth & napkins, grey crockery, clear glass and simple white candles to create a neutral base.
Paper decorations are everywhere this year and a trio of simple black-and-white paper stars or pom poms, hung above the table will add drama and tie the design together.
Tip: For a bit more ‘Christmas’, dot around some wintery pinecones and pine trimmings or perhaps lay a pine sprig on each napkin.
