If you have the pleasure (or not in some cases…) of hosting Christmas dinner for the whole family this year, make sure they feel the seasonal spirit by decorating your dinner table like a pro. Christmas dinner is arguably the best part of the day, as we go all out indulging in ALL our favourite festive treats. Apparently, us Brits consume a whopping 5,200 calories during Christmas dinner alone (and feel no guilt) so your table should wow as much as the fabulous food. Here,we’ve put together some top tips for decorating your dinner table this Christmas.
A creative centrepiece is sure to add the wow-factor to your table. Candles are a timeless classic – why not pick some pillar candles and sit them in a mini wreath? This will make your design look super stylish and festive. If you’re short on space, use a tall, thin vase and fill it with festive flowers such as Red Poinsettia or Christmas roses.

Traditional Table Cloths
Protect your table and create a real sense of occasion by opting for a traditional table cloth. Depending on your colour scheme, you can get sparkly gold and deep red cloths perfect for Christmas. If you’re worried about the little ones’ spilling, why not go for a DIY table cloth. Use black or brown paper and supply the kids with colouring pens and pencils – let them decorate the table as they please – it will keep them busy whilst you tuck into your turkey!
Perfect Place Settings
To create the perfect place settings, use your finest plates and cutlery. Try stacking your plates on top of one another – put the largest plate on the bottom which will be used for the main meal and pop the starter plate on top – this will add a sense of luxury to the table. On top of your plates, lay decorative napkins in festive colours such as red, green and gold. To really show that this is a special occasion, use stylish napkin holders with glitter or diamantes to create seasonal sparkle!
Follow these tips and tricks for a magical Christmas dinner table that will wow all your guests this year. There are endless possibilities for creating beautiful settings to suit any table regardless of size and shape, so get creative. With the table sorted, you can relax and enjoy the tasty treats!
