All-out traditionalist

Our traditional table is perfect for those whose motto is ‘more is more’ when it comes to the holidays. Keep to a red, white and green palette for an authentic festive feel, then add warmth with a run of golden fairy lights. Baubles needn’t be saved for the tree, nor foliage for wreaths; both make striking table decorations. And you can’t go wrong with a few classic touches – think Christmas characters, pillar candles and fresh cranberries.

Scandi chic

Scandinavians know a thing or two about design, so it’s no surprise they’re experts at holiday decorating. Create your very own Nordic-inspired wonderland this year with metallic table linen, patterned crockery and ceramic lanterns. Fir tree sprigs and rustic wood slices make elegant table decorations, as do our woodland animal ornaments. And why not try tying together bundles of cutlery with string, threading through a few baubles for good measure?

Understated elegance

Perfect for pared-back homes, a minimalist table can be just as effective at conjuring the magic of Christmas. Start with the basics – choose classic pieces with subtle twists, like this white tablecloth and napkins, checked with silver thread. Then, opt for a single, statement centrepiece and bring the glow with elegant tealights. For a personal touch, make your own place cards from simply wrapped parcels tied with string.
