Make your Christmas lunch a stylish affair with these fantastic budget Christmas table ideas. Make a stylish statement with inexpensive decorations, ornaments and a few crafty ideas. Start with simple low-cost furniture and build a stylish scheme around it.

Gather pine cones on a winter walk through the park and forest and string them together to make a rustic garland to dress your table. Browse flea markets and car boot fairs for vintage decorations and festive paraphernalia. Buy fabrics and linens from local second-hand shops and upycycle them into festive table runners. Use old scrabble pieces to make attractive place cards and spray paint pine cones in metallic hues for shimmer and shine. Dot a few tealights around the table for a glamorous look that is purse-friendly and minimal fuss. Instead of expensive bouquets, fill glass vases with pretty baubles, tinsel or Holly.
