Begin creating your traditional table setting by laying down a festive table runner, before carefully placing your dishes and cutlery. Why not add some gorgeous snowflake napkin rings to your setting, paired beautifully with some Christmassy red napkins?

There are plenty of ways you can create a centrepiece, but for a really cosy & festive feel, place some candles in the centre of the table for a gorgeous soft warm glow. Opt for Christmas candles as opposed to real candles with a flame; this way you can enjoy the realistic flicker, without the worry of placing them near materials or curious little hands at the dinner table.

The same goes for our super safe glitter tea lights. These cute candles will stay cool to the touch and will look fabulous dotted around your Christmas table, for an extra touch of sparkle.

Accompany the candles with some festive flowers or place them inside a Christmas wreath. If you’re feeling extra creative, why not rustle up your own festive mason jar lights?

Colourful Christmas Party Table Decoration Ideas

If you want to steer away from the traditional approach this year, why not go wild with colour at the dinner table to get everyone in the party spirit? Brighten up the table with some multicoloured lights, such as our best-selling multicoloured star lights. Drape them across the table between your crockery or pop them inside a glass bowl or jar for a truly colourful centrepiece.

If you're in the baking spirit, rustle up some Christmas cakes using some festive Christmas toppers and cake kits for an added dash of colour at the dinner table. Or, use these awesome cake stand to host the finale of the feast; the scrumptious Christmas cake!Don't forget the bottle of bubbly and plenty of party poppers to create the ultimate Christmas party setting for your guests.

Sparkly, Silver & Metallic Christmas Table Decoration Ideas

We absolutely adore the metallic theme at Christmas, especially since it looks super sparkly and sophisticated. This theme looks extra gorgeous on a white table, complete with well-dressed white chairs.

Add a touch of twinkle with some gorgeous LED tea lights dotted around the table or place them in some tall candle holders that will act as your centrepiece, as seen in the beautiful setting below.

Finish off your silver Christmas theme with some fresh white flowers and some beautiful metallic table accessories or keep it minimalist with some simple LED taper candles and silver crockery.
