How to set a beautiful table for Christmas dinner

Christmas carols are already in the air. The celebrations are only days away, and this year you are the one throwing the holiday get-together. If you are still looking for inspiration and wondering how to get started, keep reading on for tips from the Stylodeco team. 51943 Oak Slice extendable dining table (2)_1024 x 575 Start with the basics Christmas presents the rare opportunity for all of us to come together and share a wonderful meal so our foremost advice to throwing a fabulous celebration is to do a sit-down dinner. It does not have to be formal and pompous. With a little creativity, it can be simple, festive and around the table, your friends and family will be more enticed to engage in conversation. 1 For this special occasion, you might consider shopping for a brand new table to host in style. If so, don’t look any further, Ethnicraft offers the ultimate design. Scandinavian-inspired, a massive oak table with a remarkable design, the Slice Extendable Dining Table seduces with effortless elegance. This gorgeous table’s innovative and clever extension design allows you to accommodate up to 12 diners. The more the merrier! 2 The extension mechanism is hidden and easy to use, working as a great party trick to surprise your guests with. First pull the extendable end towards you, then unfold the sides, bring the two parts together and secure with the locks. Now, you are all set to lay a beautiful Christmas table.

We love a mix of silver, copper and light pink hues. Once your colour scheme is decided, start setting your dinner table with dinnerware. We used modern and elegant stoneware plates and wine glasses by House Doctor to serve as the perfect base to build upon. KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA Spills at a dinner party are (probably) inevitable. If you’d like to protect your solid wood dining table from spills and stains, try dressing it up with linen tablecloth and napkins from Stylodeco’s soft shade collection. Experiment and play with the contrast of the table linens to create the desired look. As a natural fabric, linen is perfect for tropical weather, and highly absorbent if any drink spills. Decorate your holiday table to make it your own. You could use a traditional table runner or create a sensational runway using stylish accessories. We guarantee that it will keep your diners entertained. 4 In theme with the holiday spirit, spread some cheer with Christmas paper baubles and stars. Nothing says Christmas like pine cones, so complement the display with Hubsch’s chic pine cones and bells. Finally, add a trendy note with adorable deer antler ornaments. 5 6 The magical touch – lighting Lastly, add an element of enchantment with candles, especially after sundown. Create an interesting look by mixing all kind of shapes, colours and dimensions. The different styles will blend beautifully, and bring character to your table. From pillars, candle trees and t-lights, candles are magical when it comes to setting up a unique feeling and atmosphere. target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Candle_1024 x 575 Finally, make this year’s Christmas meal one to remember with great food, drink, company and conversation!   Celine is part of the Stylodeco blog team and a home decor aficionado.
