Lay the Table

Christmas Tablescape

Christmas can be an expensive time, what with all the presents and food. So the last thing you want to do, is spend a heap of money on decorating your table. Well, I’m here to prove that cutting the cost doesn’t mean losing the aesthetic value.

I love a foraged table setting, pine cones, berries, mistletoe, fern leaves, twigs. You’ll find them all in abundance at this time of year. It makes everything look so natural too, which I feel gives everything a more cosy feel; The true aim of Christmas. Tartan is such a beautiful pattern, and I feel these napkins are shown off beautifully against the crisp white dinnerware. Find them here.

Talking of the dinnerware, when this arrived I was overwhelmed by how pretty it was. The rope edging, beautiful embossed Stag sitting proud as punch. And at only £3 each, both dinner plate and side plate really pack the wow factor. Find them here.

If your family are anything like mine, everyone always likes to know where they are sitting. I made it simple this year, with these alphabet tags. Lovely gilded gold with a tiny jingle bell and only £1 each, find them here.

Candy canes always feature at Christmas, I love to attach them to my presents under some ribbon. Here I have popped one in with the cutlery and tied them in velvet. Adds a fun touch to the table setting and will please the kiddos I expect. Find them here.

Talking of kiddos, how adorable is this? I mean!
