Tableware has been stealing our homeware hearts in 2020, so what better meal to embrace the trend than a Christmas Day feast. Often one of the few meals of the year enjoyed with so many loved ones, Christmas mealtimes embody the beauty of food to bring people together. Enhance that mood with an exquisite tablescape. Here’s our inspiration round-up.
Like the stunning design pictured by BoConcept, a hanging arrangement adds a wow-factor to your celebratory meal – and leaves more room on the table. Fashion a hanging display from pine branches and cones for a traditional, wreath-inspired take, or mix in modernity with toi toi, eucalyptus or dried flowers. The addition of hanging decorations, like here, brings a definitive Christmassy touch.
If you love the charm of classical Christmas style, embrace greens, reds and golds. A white tablecloth can set the scene, overlaid with table runners, linen napkins and polished cutlery. Crystal, (or crystal-look) glassware and candle holders will add a glint of occasion, especially with the lit candles themselves. Employ pine, or pine-look, greenery adorned with ribbons, mini-cones and the odd ornament.
Stylists and interior magazines are showcasing contemporary takes on this traditional day which include more pared back table themes. We’re seeing natural, terracotta and forest green coloured linens alongside jute placemats and ceramic serve ware. Festive colours are being delivered with gold cutlery and candlesticks, and baubles used as napkin ties. Dried flowers endure, but perhaps with a pop of fresh red for some floral festivity.
