CHRISTMAS DAY DINING ROOM - NORDIC ELEGANCE
Our Christmas day dining room takes its inspiration from nature and uses lots of everyday objects, plus plants, branches and berries you’d find on a crisp winter’s walk. Decorate the entire length of your table with a handmade garland, bringing in rustic ceramics, linen and light woods a classic colour palette of red, green and white.
If you're hosting Christmas dinner this year, you'll want to set the perfect Christmassy scene in your home, with the dining table taking centre stage. We have shared our top styling tips to help you create a magical Christmas table setting that will impress your guests.
GET THE LOOK
THE CENTER PIECE | Draw your eye to the center of the table with a table runner, on which you can lay your garland. We used a lovely red linen one from Nordic house which fit in perfectly with our colour scheme. Add height to your table decorations with candles and mini Christmas trees. We used these wonderful battery candles from Nordic house which are a great substitute for real candles if you have children or pets. The mini trees from Party pieces add that extra bit of festiveness, especially the battery light up tree which adds that extra twinkle!
KEEP IT SIMPLE | We kept the natural rustic feel with the white linen napkins from Rowen & Wren, these look great all year round, but we added a festive flare by adding a berry spray from Party Pieces. We would also recommend keeping your tableware all classic, white and simple like this set from Dunelm.
NATURAL FOLIAGE | Head into your garden to collect a few little cuttings of evergreen foliage to dot around you table, keep them looing fresh in these delightful mini vases from Nordic House.
MAXIMISE AND OVERSIZE | Oversized Wreath - Play with the scale of your decorations for added impact. The English Garland Company has some amazingly realistic wreaths, like the one above.
FOLIAGE | Use festive foliage to dress the table | easy to find in your garden or opt for ever lasting faux branches like these from Maisons Du Monde.
ARK WORK | The style of this room is about simplicity and nature, so we chose art to reflect this. These lovely botanical prints by King and McGaw with their Oak frames fit in perfectly.
GET HANDS ON | Make your own oversized advent calendar to dress your wall. This also allows for bigger presents!
REAL TREE | For this Nordic theme you can't get better then a real tree, nothing beats the smell! Patch not only sell house plants but also perfectly shaped Christmas trees like the ones we used to style our rooms.
