Make Christmas dinner a really special occasion with these great table-top looks
Scandi-chic country Christmas table
Try an informal country look for Christmas day breakfast with lots of light wood and white, plus folksy Scandinavian touches. Use red and white hand-painted decorations, homespun-style linens and a seasonal runner on the table. Finish the look by dressing your chandelier in berries and ivy.
• Choose wooden decorations – dress the mantel with a small wooden tree and tealights in glass votives, finish with a garland of ivy.
• Use brightly coloured table linen – red and white gives an instant Christmas feel and is the perfect backdrop to plain white china.
