Tips to Decorate your Christmas Table

Christmas is fast approaching and we are all feeling the stress of all the tasks that are still to do ready for the big day. At Flingers we understand how special it is to have the whole family sat around the table for Christmas dinner. So don't worry about dressing the table as at Flingers we have everything you will need all in one place. 

We have been inspired by some of the beautiful decorations and table settings above and thought we would deliver some helpful tips for your Christmas day meal. 

How to Dress your Christmas Table:

  • Use a simple colour scheme. This year we are big fans of the luxurious and very festive colours of red and gold. Select your colour scheme to ensure the finished table is well co-ordinated and stylish.
  • Create a festive centrepiece to add a little something extra to the table decor. Dress the table with red and gold candles or if you are feeling a little more creative, use holly branches, berries and flowers in a small vase for a more traditional look.
  • Layer different textures. Use a table runner for a luxurious feel and choose placemats and napkins to pick up the colours of your dinnerware,
  • Add a personal touch by using special items as favours or place cards to delight your friends and family. 
  • Use serving plates to allow each guest to help themselves to the perfect portion and help avoid waste.
  • Take the time to ensure each place setting is identical to the next for a smart and well presented table.
