Our traditional Christmas table ideas are perfect for those who like their holiday season with a sprinkling of fun. Keep to a red, white and green palette for an authentic feel, mixing and matching festive motifs like Christmas trees and candy canes. Tie everything together with a table runner and place sprigs of holly in clear glass vases around the table. Add warmth with a run of twinkling fairy lights and flickering candles to set the scene.
Perfect for pared-back homes, a minimalist table can be just as effective at conjuring the magic of the holidays. Start with the basics and choose classic pieces with a wintry twist, like these star-scattered placemats. Then layer up beautiful white crockery, topping each place setting with a star-shaped bowl to continue the celestial theme. Add a subtle glow with elegant tealights and blue and white baubles at differing heights above the table for a stunning final touch.
