Christmas dinner is one of the biggest and best meals of the year. So you’re going to want it to be extra special. Food is important of course but also the table settings. It’s sometimes over looked but can really make a difference in making Christmas extra special.
From table decorations to serving the food. We’ve got it covered in this quick guide.
Starting With Cutlery
There are so many selections out there for cutlery. Silver, gold or even rose gold. It depends on the colour pallet of your table. Dark deep colours with velvets and silks look great with rose gold cutlery. For a more traditional Christmas colour pallet gold is a winner. Silver, of course, suits most table settings. Nice cutlery will definitely make a statement.
Plates And Dishes
Often overlooked as an important part of the table setting, we absolutely love the Christmas range from Emma Bridgewater. It can give a much needed boost to the festivities.
It’s a good idea to think up a colour scheme for your lay out. Some opt for traditional and Christmassy aesthetics while others may go for a darker, glamorous look. Either way your plates and dishes can really tie it all together.
Serving The Food
Serving up food in cast iron, not only looks great, but also maintains the heat of the dishes. Whether its piping hot roast potatoes or sauteed veggies, you can help yourself to seconds and they will still be nice and warm for a while after.
We have a great range for you to choose from including the Morso Casserole Dish, Multicocotte’s and Skillets.
We have seen many beautifully designed decorations for the table. From custom made napkins to gorgeously crafted foliage decorations. Holly, thistles, mini trees made from cuttings from real fir trees.
Sometimes a vase with beautiful festive arrangements are that little something that gives your layout an extra boost. Thistles, holly and autumnal leaves go great with a festive theme.
We love these ideas below.
Candles too add to the atmosphere and the overall look. You can opt for tea lights or candle sticks. We love these candle sticks inspired by the interlacing tree roots for something unique for the dinner table.
