STYLE IT: Decorating your CHRISTMAS TABLE

We have already featured a Christmas Table Decoration styling piece this year, however we thought we would throw back to this one we did last year, as it is very different to the one we created this year. Enjoy some last minute inspiration for your table and happy decorating!

When deciding on how to decorate your christmas table, it can be difficult to think of something new and exciting each year. We have put together some beautiful yet inexpensive christmas decorations from Myer that will make your christmas table sparkle this holiday season.

For our christmas table this year we wanted to change things up from the traditional red and green theme, so we decided on a colour palette of pink and gold. We used a combination of purchased decorations from Myer but also things you can find around the home for example, Tree branches, pine cones and butchers paper.

We hope you find some inspiration from our table because you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make the table look amazing on Christmas day.

How to lay a casual table correctly:

The table needs to look inviting but organised and have enough space for your dinner guests to eat comfortably.

  • The fork is on the left, knife on the right and a napkin or bread and butter plate is to the left of the fork, at around 10 o’clock. (we didn’t follow this rule as we needed to write name cards on the right of the plate)
  • Always make sure the wine glass and drinking glass are positioned to the right, at around 2′o clock’ of the dinner plate.
  • The dinner plate is the centre of the setting, but if you are serving an entree or salad, you may wish to add a smaller plate on top of the larger dinner plate and serve all the food communally in the centre of the table for people to help themselves.

Large pinecones (we painted the tips of the pine cones in pink paint) and branches were pulled from the garden and Brown butchers paper was used as the tablecloth.

We used a pink uni posca to write the names of our guests on the butchers paper.
