Festive Table Styling – Day 9 of 12

Festive Table Styling – Day 9 of 12

Hey Lookers

Welcome to Day 9 of my 12 Days of Christmas

Preparing and styling the table for the big day is such an exciting part of the whole festive season. There are so many styling options to choose from and you can get really get extra creative.

My colour scheme in my dining area is silver, gold and copper so I am opting for metallics as the key theme.

Key to styling any table is a creating a statement focal point – typically a centrepiece. This can take the form of foliage, candles, ornaments, pinecones.

This is one I created myself

Some ideas How To Create a Statement:

  • Fill a vase or bowl with baubles, pine cones or string lights for an easy but effective Christmas centrepiece.

  • Create a Winter Wonderland scene by filling jars with Epson salts, spare baubles, some fresh cranberries and a tea light

  • Use your cake stand to make a stand out centrepiece, filling it with baubles, pinecones and other festive ornaments

  • Transform an old tray by adding decorations to it, some candles and foliage, this can create a wonderful centrepiece.

  • Use ornaments such as lanterns or Stags (which I am obsessing about again this year) and surround them with pinecones, cranberries and fresh greenery for a festive effect.

  • Finish by spraying your centrepiece with Festive Fragrance and add extra festive candles around your home to transform it into a winter wonderland scent.

Below are some table styling ideas where I drew some inspiration from and I love this ‘How to Set a Table’ infograph.
