Elegant Christmas Table Idea

What is your favourite part of Christmas day? Mine is when the family gather together around the table; festive music, amazing food and lots of laughter.

I always love to make the table look that extra bit special, so I thought I’d share a low cost elegant Christmas table setting idea using mostly what I already had around the house.

Table 2016 7

I kept the colour palette light and neutral so it’s in keeping with the dining room decor. Lots of reflective surfaces give the centre piece that Christmas sparkle.

You don’t need to go and spend on Christmassy table wear in order to create a beautiful setting. Here I used a plain linen table runner that I made myself with some leftover fabric, and woven placemats I already had from TKMaxx. They provide a nice neutral backdrop for the lustrous centrepiece. The candles and candle holders were also what I gathered together from around our home. Any crystal or reflective items can so easily be translated to Christmas decor when grouped with a simple festive piece. Here I added mercury glass Christmas trees (Asda and Tkmaxx), simple but effective.

Weaving a white berry garland through the centre of the table ties it all together. I had this one at a garden centre during my annual post Christmas bargain hunt!

The napkins and napkin rings again are not intended as festive items but work so well as it’s all within a neutral colour scheme. (Napkins – Next, napkin rings – a gift but I believe they were from Monsoon). Purchasing timeless items mean they have a purpose beyond Christmas, and that kind of versatility is a win-win in my book. 🙂

A simple garland and fairy lights along the radiator ledge adds some greenery and depth to the room providing a perfectly refined backdrop.

Our dining chairs are so comfortable no-one is ever in a rush to move after eating! They were from TKMaxx and Homesense. We also have a duel purpose piano stool that doubles up as a dining bench if needed for more guests.
