Give your Christmas table a traditional look with Thornback & Peel’s festive accessories

Partridges, pears, robins and stags – what's not to love about these timeless motifs?

So, with Halloween out of the way and Bonfire Night’s fireworks all safely exploded, what’s next on the entertainment to-do list?

Ah yes, it’s only…. shopping days ’till Christmas.

To beat the mad rush, Livingetc has already picked out which table settings will look best with the big feast and we’ve plumped for Thornback & Peel‘s gorgeous accessories.

Since we’re expecting a multitude to descend on the Christmas party this year, we’ve ordered plenty of crackers to help break the ice.

We’ve opted for two designs: Partridge & Pear and Stag & Spot, each priced at £55 for a box of six.

Each of these little beauties contains a festive hanky, a gold or silver hat, a (hopefully funny or cringe-making) joke and a conversation starter.

And if you’re particulary enamoured of the hankies, an example of which is this delightful red, red robin, they’re also available to buy as a set of three for £15.95 – perfect for gifts and Secret Santa surprises.

Right, all we need now is a table large enough to accommodate our guests…
