Christmas Dinner is probably the most significant meal of the year, it is a great time to get together and share a meal with friends and family. The dinner table is the focal point around which these festivities take place, so dressing it well is very important.
If you’re hosting Christmas Dinner this year, here are some nice table tips that will help you set the scene.
The foundation of any nice table setting is the tablecloth. It won’t look great by the end of the dinner (all that spilt wine and gravy does tend to ruin its pristine, ironed finery), but it’s the canvas on which you can create a splendid table. A white tablecloth is probably the most traditional.
Christmas has always been the time to get out your best china. If your plates are looking a little chipped and rough around the edges, you may want look for a new dinner set before Christmas starts.
Nice cutlery makes eating that much more enjoyable. Silver is traditional for Christmas.
Be it a bowl of fruit, a vase of flowers, or a piece of art glass, every Christmas table should have a centrepiece. Antiques shops are great places to pick up vases, bowls and art glass. Pick some flowers from your garden, or get some on Christmas Eve from your local florist for a flower arrangement that will wow the guests.
Hope you guys enjoy and make a wonderful Christmas table.. Next i’ll be showing some ideas for you Chritsmas table aswell. Xoxo S.
