So here are our festive tips on how to prepare your dining table for Christmas. 

Create a centrepiece

If you want your Christmas table to have a real impact, we recommend always starting with the centrepiece. And in this case, it’s the choice of table! We have a range of unique dining tables that will catch the eye of every guest that walks into  your home. You can then look to find some stylish dining chairs to provide the comfy seating you need during the many dinner parties!

The next preparation is how to dress your dining table.

Dining Decor

Soft furnishings are a perfect way to start laying the table for Christmas. This could a table runner as a base, before layering up your look by adding stunning pieces for your table setting.

LED Candles

You can look to create a magical atmosphere by lighting some LED candles without the fear of the house breaking out into a fire. You can dress your candles with a pretty ribbon or place them on top of a candle stand to add that wow factor.

Octopus Wine Holder

A bottle of wine is an essential during Christmas dinner parties, so why not give it its own space at the table? The unique octopus wine holder not only adds style but is a good conversational feature. It comes in two Christmassy colours: silver and gold. So there isn’t the worry of whether it’ll match your existing Christmas decorations.

Another extra special touch to your dining table at Christmas is making sure every delicious course is served on the right tableware. Try stacking soup bowls on top of matching dinner plates for a fabulous feel and then using different textures and finishes. If your Christmas decor throughout your home follows a certain theme, don’t be afraid to ramp it up in your dinnerware!
