Decorating ideas for the perfect Christmas dining table
First, make sure you have enough chairs and extend your table if needed. Lay a heatproof cloth over it to protect the surface, and wash and iron your Christmas linen.
• Table linen – we used a plain white tablecloth, runner and napkins, with a heatproof mat under the table cloth
• Charger plates
• Crockery, cutlery and serving spoons for each course
• Wine glasses, water tumblers and champagne flutes
• Mats for hot dishes
• Place cards – we used luggage tags – and ribbon
• Candy canes
• Table centrepieces
• Candles and holders
