    Get (table) set for Christmas

    Why dine out when you can revel in #JOSI (the Joy Of Staying In) this holiday season? If you’re planning on hosting a seasonal soirée round yours, give your entertaining set-up a festive facelift with our Christmas table setting ideas. One table, styled three different ways, meaning you'll still give good Insta grid.

    1. Classic

    Dreaming of a dark Christmas

    With table decor this deliciously decadent, who cares about the food? Using dark walls as your backdrop, bring a little warmth to your tablescape with garish gold accents and jewel-toned linens. Handwritten name cards, fine wine and a fancy fruit platter are sure to impress your guests (even if you're ordering in).

    2. Scandi

    #Slay bells ring

    Set the scene, Scandi style. A crisp white tablecloth plus plenty of candles and cut glassware make for an indoor winter wonderland. Use foraged fresh greenery to ‘spruce’ up the table. Complement the icy-cool tones with shiny silver cutlery and matt black candlesticks. Just add a cheese board for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.

    3. Modern

    All is bright

    Swerve the traditional colour combo of red and green with this totally modern twist. Make your table merry and very bright with colourful glassware and too-cute paper pompoms. Monochromatic dinnerware creates a blank canvas to let bright accessories pop. Bonus: this set-up works well for NYE, too...
