Here in Australia, Christmas is celebrated in summer, so why pretend it’s snowing when it clearly isn’t?! Add touches of the tropics with your décor, like the tropical-themed pattern in our Hayman Range, and natural fibre placemats like Ariel and Shelly to capture the perfect holiday vibes this festive season.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, with the festive season on the horizon. It’s a time to gather and spend quality time with our family and friends, but it’s also the perfect excuse to re-style your home!

While the Christmas tree is the place to establish your theme, the Christmas table is where you can go to town. From table runners to foliage, your table is the perfect blank canvas for a Christmas to remember.

If you need a little inspiration, we’ve got the perfect ideas on how to style your Christmas table this year:

 

Keep it traditional

It’s hard to go past red, green and white when decorating for Christmas. Start with a simple leafy garland down the middle of the table, and add red and white candles in differing sizes.

To keep away from tacky tinsel and Santa motifs (which we still think is a lot of fun if that’s more your vibe!), instead, opt for a darker hue of red for an instantly chic look. Stick to solid colours when selecting tablecloths and introduce simple patterns with more small elements like napkins or bonbons.

 

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie

If your Christmas is more BBQs, seafood and fruit platters than roasted pork and vegetables, an Australian Natives theme could be right up your alley!

Add beautiful sprigs of kangaroo paw, banksia, waratah, wattle and eucalyptus to your favourite vase or use them in smaller pieces for place settings.

 

Tropical getaway

Here in Australia, Christmas is celebrated in summer, so why pretend it’s snowing when it clearly isn’t?! Add touches of the tropics with your décor, like the tropical-themed pattern in our Hayman Range, and natural fibre placemats like Ariel and Shelly to capture the perfect holiday vibes this festive season.

 

Keep it classy

What is classier than silver and gold?! Keep your styling simple with whites and neutrals, and add a pop of colour with our favourite metallics.

Stunning glassware like our Kiara range will add the perfect touch to keep things fancy.

 

Edible centrepiece

One of our favourite past times is eating until we’re about to explode on Christmas Day. If you’re a foodie like us, decorate your table with nibbles!

Depending on whether you prefer to host indoors or out, the weather might impact what you choose to serve. Cheeseboard, fruit platter, or mini bites – we’re sure it will look and taste like all your Christmas wishes have come true.

Display your delectable treats on a serving board for the best wow factor!
