Seasonal Decorations: Create A Magical Day With the Best Christmas Table Setting

Hosting Christmas lunch or a festive get-together? Preparing a festive feast can be particularly stressful, and as a result, the table setting can often be the last thing to think about. Rather than throwing out some old Christmas tableware as the guests knock on your door, consider planning your ideal Christmas table in advance.

From baubles to garlands, here are some Christmas inspired table settings you can draw influence from.

Santa Red

Splashes of red are a simple yet effective way of signalling that, yes you are aware it’s Christmas but no, you aren’t a fan of the glitter, snow globes and mini-statues. Red glassware and plates are a great way of incorporating some Christmas spirit into your table setting. Red lilies or chrysanthemums make for a great floral centrepiece to tie everything together.

White and gold

A match made in heaven: white and gold. While pulling out the white linen isn’t always the best idea at Christmas family lunch, a crisp white tablecloth brings out gold cutlery and Christmas decor beautifully. Christmas tree statues and gold garlands like these make for a great table centrepiece.

Contemporary Christmas

If traditional Christmas decor isn’t your style, consider taking a more contemporary approach to your table setting, by playing with texture. Bring in neutral linens and complimentary native garlands and arrangements to create an Australian coastal feel.


If baubles, candles and green and red garlands are your thing, then a table setting like this one might work for you. Tying in the rich traditional colours of Christmas, this festive garland stands out against more muted tableware.
