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.
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).
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.
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...
