Christmas dining

When it comes to festive dining, I have a confession to make: I’m more interested in how it all looks than what it tastes like. Sorry, I’m just not a big eater! But I do love a well decorated table.

Christmas is just the kind of excuse I need to spend hours making centrepieces and thinking of how best to sort out place settings. Here are some ideas that have inspired me this year…

1) You don’t need to overcomplicate things – this simple linen napkin is made into a real attraction with some ribbon, a small card and a sprig of berries:

2) This beaded mistletoe wire is a great idea for decorating your table simply. You could also use it for all sorts of other decorating too, including wrapping presents:

3) These red robin linen napkins are gorgeous, and not so Christmassy that you couldn’t use them throughout the winter. Again, no napkin ring, just a bit of lace ribbon:

4) I love the combination of vintage cutlery and modern bling in this setting; plus I think every festive dinner should be liberally scattered with table confetti:

So, what are you up to for Christmas, and how will you be decorating your table?
