home: made [ Christmas table ]
If you are hosting Christmas and want a showstoping table to impress your guests, then today we share some amazing inspiration and ideas to do just that.
We have collected some of our favourite images from idealhome.co.uk and amara.com to get you in the mood for getting creative.
First thing is to decide if you want to go for simplicity or maxamlist as well as a possible colour scheme. Don’t worry about matching it to yout room, it’s Christmas!
Think about the number of guests and how much glassware, cutlery and plates you will need. These don’t all have to be on the table at once, but it is nice to have everything available for your guests.
Depending on if you have a round or rectagular table you will need to consider a centrepiece. On a round table go tall in the middle with a few differnet pieces, or on a rectugular table have a longer centrepiece running down the middle, and if you have space try a hanging decoration above to compliment.
Build the table up with your items, keeping everything evenly spread, so everyone gets to see your design. Also a nice touch for your guests is to peronalise something, maybe a napkin ring, a cracker or a simple name card in the middle of their plate tied to some foliage cuttings.
