Styling Your Christmas Dining Table

Written by: Grace Agar

As we gather round the table and begin to celebrate the festive season with loved ones, set the scene and prepare your table for all the festive merriments to come. Tables dressed with overflowing foliage and gentle candlelight, make your dining space the heart of your home. As you prepare to host bustling festive dinner parties or calm, cosy gatherings, we want to share our top tips on how to create the perfect Christmas dining ambience.

No matter the size of your space or table, simple festive touches make the biggest of differences when it comes to your dining space. Begin to dress your table with classic Christmas garlands interwoven along the centre. Choose pre-lit foliage to give an added, effortless sparkle and gently tease the foliage to achieve your desired look. Complement with an abundance of TruGlow® candles in amongst the foliage, mixing and matching different styles from red dripping wax taper to white star pillar candles, to bring dimension and a traditional festive feel.

If you prefer the minimalistic look, opt for more neutral and rustic foliage like our Oversized Mistletoe Garland, and adorn with only Ivory TruGlow® nestled amidst the foliage. Accompany with timeless touches of hessian ribbon bows and soft white decorations for the ultimate Scandinavian inspired festive display, and complete with the matching wreath on a neighbouring wall for a cohesive, calm display.

Whichever style you choose for your dining space, complete each place setting with hand written name cards and napkins tied with quaint little bows for a personal and elevated touch. Style upon each plate and finish with Ivory TruGlow® Mini Votive Candles placed beside to thread a cosy glow throughout. Finish with twinkling Osby stars tied with ribbon, suspended from the back of each chair to bring additional festive sparkle, and welcome a season full of celebrations.
