Wow your guests this Christmas with an easy, stress free table setting that looks amazing.
Here in Australia Christmas coincides with summer and a warm and sunny climate. As would be expected our traditions have changed over the years to suit this time of year and our relaxed Australian lifestyle. It is the start of summer holidays and a time to relax and spend time with family and friends.
When you’re putting together your Christmas table there are no rules – have fun and enjoy creating a special table for your family and friends to gather around. It is the small details that can make all the difference.
Australian style can be reflected in the use of Australian native flora in your Christmas table centrepiece. Here we have used fresh flora from foraged from a local park entwined in a pine garland, keeping the centrepiece neutral you can then customise to your own style and colours by adding baubles and candles nestled along the length of the garland.
Knotted, folded, or tied with a ribbon? There are many ways to style napkins on your table this Christmas. We have used a simple knot here. You can continue your Christmas colour theme on the table by using a ribbon on your serviettes or a bauble on the plate in the same colour as your chosen theme.
At any festive gathering a little table gift makes a thoughtful addition and acts as a personalised place setting. Delight the children with our gorgeous small Christmas tins filled with some sweet treats and placed on their table setting. A pretty bauble placed on a table setting also makes a lovely gift.
No Christmas table is complete without Christmas crackers. Carry your colour theme through to the crackers. A long-standing tradition on most Christmas tables it just wouldn’t be Christmas without the silly hats, cringe worthy jokes and the swapping of trinkets that have spilled out of the cracker onto the Christmas table.
With the table all set, whether you’re celebrating over a cold Christmas lunch, a traditional roast or a seafood banquet you can be sure the table setting is a huge success.
