Four stylish ways to nail your Christmas table setting

Article by Homes to Love

Festive decor doesn’t have to be the kind you keep in a box all year and only pull out for Christmas. Get inspired with these four timeless table settings 

Green, grey and brass

A moody botanical theme reins supreme for a stylish yet festive affair. Add texture to your table by mixing stormy greys and warm forest greens and use bright brass accents as your final flourish.

Minimalist, modern style

Give your Christmas table modern edge using balck and pink with clean, minimalist lines. Keep the decorative elements to a minimum. and start with a muted-pink base and then layer with dramatic pops of black.

Rustic, neutral style

Use rustic textures and neutral accents to create a subtle table setting this Christmas. Get inspired by Scandinavian style and use crockery with soft, organic edges and thread wood and rough textures throughout your table setting.

Copper and navy

Warm metal hues and deep tones are a welcome change from the glitz and twinkle of Christmas decor. Mix navy ceramics with glints of copper in glassware and cutlery for a sophisticated setting.
