HOW TO LAY YOUR CHRISTMAS TABLESCAPE
Start with your white linen table runner. This can be placed down the centre line of the table. It works beautifully on a wooden table, but you can place it on top of another tablecloth too. Think of it as the red (white) carpet for your central display. Next position your placemats for your guests, whichever side up you would prefer: you can choose from grey or pink, or even mix ’n’ match.
Add cutlery and china (we prefer to have plates on the table as guests sit down, then remove them to serve, but that is your call!).
Add the champagne glasses at the top right corner of the placemats. The mats are big enough to accommodate the glasses.
Place your napkins in the centre of each plate, or you could fold them in half, concertina them into a fan or get creative! (swan, anyone?) We think the patterns are so pretty they look lovely just resting on each plate as they are, but a sprig of Christmas green on each napkin finishes them off beautifully.
Start decorating the middle of your table with your star garland and any Christmas foliage you may wish to use. We like to intertwine the garland with ferns, ivy, holly… any evergreens work well. To add some serious sparkle, grab some battery operated fairy-lights and coil them around too. Pine cones and bio-degradable glitter also look fabulous scattered among the greenery.
Next, position your pillar candle holders at each end. If you have a round table, place the candle holders just to the side of the eye-line of guests as they look across at each other.
Place your trees and snow stag either in a group at the centre, or spaced out along the centre line. The garland can be gently curved around your decorative items so they appear to be nestling cosily in it.
Complete your tablescape by dotting tealights in any gaps and keep your table game handy to bring out and surprise your guests!
Now you are ready. Light your candles, pop the champagne cork and enjoy the most magical, festive meal. Merry Christmas, from Dress For Dinner.
