Christmas Table Styling Ideas

6th December 2023

One of the most joyful aspects of Christmas is gathering around the table with our loved ones. So, take the opportunity to slow down and style a festive feast that will bring a little magic to their day. Dazzle your guests with striking glassware, delight them with thoughtful gifts, and assemble your very own showstopping centrepieces.

Bring warmth to the table with candlelight

Nothing makes us feel more festive than the inviting glow of candlelight. The effect of multiple twinkling tealights and lanterns can be mesmerising. Pair our Mohani Lantern with our new Rustic Pillar Candles for an atmospheric glow on your Christmas table.

Our hand forged Jahi Brass Candlesticks will add a rustic sophistication to your table or mantelpiece. Mix different candle heights for an eclectic look or introduce an elegant candelabra for additional impact. If you’re struggling to find space at the table, you could also display a candelabra on a sideboard or in the hallway to welcome your guests as they arrive.

Elevate your tableware

How you present Christmas dinner is almost as important as the feast itself. As it’s the season for indulging, we suggest displaying your food on beautifully crafted tableware. Layer handmade ceramics alongside your favourite serveware and bring out the best cutlery for your guests to enjoy. Our Bwari Round Marble Serving Board makes a sophisticated statement and will suit a variety of design schemes. Serve your dishes on natural wooden boards, such as our Ajuru Server, for a more pared back aesthetic or curate together a variety of different shapes and sizes for an eye-catching display.

For the plates themselves, opt for the classically simple design of our Cali tableware, with its rich, warm aesthetic and an eye-catching glaze that reacts in the kiln to bring out earthy bronze and rock-pool blue hues. Our hand forged Yani Cutlery set features a decadent matt black finish and is the perfect companion to elegant tableware.

Accessorise, accessorise

It’s the finishing touches that make all the difference. Set the scene for Christmas dinner by introducing personalised place settings. Our Nela Shell Placename Holders are inspired by nature and are mouth blown for a uniquely crafted appearance. When considering napkins, opt for something sustainable and hard-wearing.

Our hand woven Sanee Napkins are made from a combination of natural cotton and linen, giving them a soft, luxurious feel. Their charcoal hue and understated design make them a stylish addition to almost any tabletop. Tie them in a knot and rest them on your dinner plates or introduce some festive flair with a brass napkin ring or a foraged sprig of holly.

Create showstopping centrepieces

Every festive table needs its piece de resistance. Whether yours is an edible showstopper or a striking over-the-table display, Christmas is the perfect excuse to exercise your creativity. Keep things simple by adorning the centre of your table with a cluster candelabra or elevate your Christmas cake by displaying it on a beautifully carved cake stand.

If you’re feeling extra creative, bring your guests closer to nature by suspending a foraged arrangement above your table. Glossy evergreen foliage would be perfect for this as it has an understated elegance that would sit well within an Opulence Christmas scheme. Interweave your display with our Anara or Onir Giant Baubles for added opulence.

Show your guests how much you care by placing a small and thoughtful gift at each place setting. Give scraps of fabric a new lease of life reimagined as wrapping paper and tie presents with string or strands of colourful sari fabric. For gifting ideas, browse our Thoughtful Gift Guide.
