10 tablescape ideas to add some festive flavour

When Christmas is approaching, you're often looking for good ideas for your table scheme. Classic, original, chic or natural, we've come up with a bunch of Christmas table art ideas, now it's up to you to choose which suits your personality the most. Because there's something for everybody when it comes to Christmas decor!

Exotic chic table decor

Everything looks good in black, even your Christmas dinner table. So why not go for some gorgeous black and white tableware! And for an original touch, mix in some exotic chic such as palm leaves and savannah animals. With black tableware, a touch of gold and some smoked glass, you'll have everything you need for festive fine dining.

Golden table decor

Here's some Christmas tableware with sparkle! Gold is always a good look for Christmas. Gold plates, gold decorations, even your food, thanks to edible gold glitter. Gold is everywhere, and we love it. We think teaming it with white works particularly well for softening the look, but it also works with black or midnight blue. Sometimes all that glistens is gold!

Painted pinecones in a dish

A simple and elegant idea for decorating your Christmas table! Pick up a few pine cones, clean them and paint them all over or just paint the ends using acrylic paint and a paintbrush. Once they're dry, your pine cones will make a perfect table decoration or an original place marker. All your guests will be pining for more!

Christmas crackers for a cracker of a table

Everyone loves presents, no matter what age they are! So while you wait for the grand present unwrapping, you can whet your appetite with a few little ones on your Christmas dining table. You can even make your own Christmas crackers or buy some here. Place one on each plate to spoil your guests. We're crackers for them!

A bright table centrepiece

For your Christmas dining table this year, just think candles. Create a simple centrepiece that brings a warm glow to your table - line candles up in a row or create a group of different sized candles in the same colour as your table decor. Tip: avoid perfumed candles which could mask the flavours of your food. You might also want to add a few little extra decorative elements such as candle holders or candlebras to hold your candles, as well as pine cones, holly, artificial snow, and so on; anything that will blow away your guests!

Dried flowers for an elegant Christmas dining table

Here's an idea for some Christmas table art that is easy to make and really effective! Scatter some dried flowers on your table and add your favourite Christmas baubles to it as well as a few floral candles. Ideally you want to go for a harmonious colour scheme for an effect that is both on trend and romantic.

A red and green centrepiece that ties in with tradition

When you think of traditional Christmas table decorations, you instantly think of red and green. With traditional colours like these, you're sure to please everybody. Play on nostalgia by mixing in classic Christmas icons such as Christmas trees, baubles, Father Christmas, stars, snowflakes and reindeer. The main thing to remember about your centrepiece as well as your decorations is to have fun with them!

Spruce up your Christmas table

This year, are you yearning for a simple look? Then go white, go natural! White creates a feeling of lightness while greenery brings it down to earth. The real advantage is that you can pick up quite a lot of what you need yourself while out walking in the woods, such as moss, pine cones, holly, fir branches, etc. You could also go to the florist for some branches of eucalyptus for an elegant touch that will give your Christmas dining table decor a Scandi look.

Jingle bell jars

Both chic and feminine, glass cloches are a great idea for your Christmas table decor! Instead of just showcasing food, why not try putting something more decorative inside, such as an LED candle, a tiny tree, or a festive arrangement of baubles...
