A beautiful rustic table setting is one of the most simple yet stylish settings for Christmas at home. Decorated in whites, wood and greens, it creates a mood very respectful of nature and feels very friendly and laidback. Mix accessories like wooden candles, pine branches and chic metallic Christmas decorations with white plates and green glasses for a pared back table that won’t take long to prepare, but will wow your guests come meal time.
Nordic themed interiors are very much on-trend right now and you can easily incorporate this style into your own table settings on Christmas day. Forget messy tablecloths and linens – these only get dirty and create more washing later on! Rather, style a natural wooden table with ceramic plates and gold cutlery, accessorized with tiny tealights, mini Christmas trees and red berries to create a cosy Christmas ambience.
Dreaming of a white Christmas? Add a dash of Ibiza bohemian style with a paisley print tablecloth, beautifully embossed plates and mother-of-pearl cutlery for a Christmas dinner you’ll never forget. Bring the Christmas feeling to the table with dashes of vibrant red – think tall tapered candles, angels, hearts and vintage inspired decorations – and fuse with festive elements like stars, mini Christmas trees and pine cones. Using pretty heart emblazoned mugs instead of glasses brings a true boho feeling to your lunch – what else would you sip mulled wine from anyway?
If you like your Christmas experiences to be madcap and whimsical, then take inspiration from this ‘Ibiza Crazy Table’. Cristina says this is perfect for those unconventional types who don’t like traditional Christmas decoration. It’s all about colours and gold, with a rustic wooden blue table as the base, teamed with acid coloured plates and golden cutlery, metallic coloured angels and mini hearts strewn across the setting. The mosaic ‘Magic’ sign centerpiece brings everything together, with teensy trees and quirky decorations like birds, buses and hearts adding the finishing touch. The fun will start before you even sit down to eat!
