How To Christmas

Surely the best bit of Christmas (excepting the turkey, the crackers, the log fire, the tree, the paper chains, the mince pies, the endless Quality Streets, the presents) is laying the table. We’re going to guide you through a few madly different tablescapes for the big day.

 

Candy Stripes

Is it just me? My absolute favourite colour combination in all the world is pink and red (and I don’t even particularly like the colour pink). Taking our lead from Projektityyny’s marvellous broad striped red and white tablecloth (matching cushions if you’re interested, FYI), we’ve laid a table celebrating this clashing combo. Keep your china and glassware simple to maximise the pops of colour and stop things getting a little too hectic (Costa Nova white pearl and The Vintage List are the perfect foils). Vaisselle gives us some bold ceramics with a heady mix of stripes and checks and florals for drama. Be sure to overload with candlelight and Heather Evelyn's striped baubles.

Elegant Blues

After Christmas my lovely mum launders the tablecloth for me because she doesn’t trust my housekeeping skills (I have been known to put cashmere on a boil wash and non fast colours in with my white linen napkins so she has reason to be skeptical). If your mum is a mite less enthusiastic about doing your dirty laundry, use a few sheets of beautiful wrapping paper to make a disposable table runner. We love Lucy Brackin’s illustrations for her Wanderlust stationery brand and this pretty floral print is a perfect backdrop for our blue table. Accessorise with a few elegant pieces. We love the soft colours of the Otterbourne Glass candlesticks, the delicate glass pearl flatware and cups and a cheeky Monsieur tree decoration as a table favour.

Cabbages and Roses

Not strictly roses, but all manner of blockprint flowers mixed with Bordallo Pinhero cabbage china, this is our botanically inspired table. We used tea towels as placemats and napkins (nothing like a bit of multi tasking with household linen). If you fancy a bit of origami crafting, try folding the napkins into a Christmas tree shape. It’s always nice to have an opportunity for show and tell around the dinner table. Prop with tonal candles and candlesticks. And treat your guests with a sugared plum.

All American Diner

Possibly the very best of this particular bunch, this is not in fact a table at all. This is the ultimate TV dinner, all laid out on the non de plus ultra of lap trays from Kaymet. Picture yourself in Palm Springs sometime in the early 1960s, perched on your Charles and Ray Eames lounger, watching the classic Rudolph film on the TV (read all about it here) and sipping a Martini (am I obsessing?). To channel these vintage vibes, we used Hay: the rainbow range (in light yellow) as tableware; the borosilicate glass cups, spoon and candlesticks; and the new twist candles. Mosser salt and pepper shakers provide a taste of genuine Americana. Just keep the colour palette pastel and charming. Eat pickles. And ask Big Boy to join you for the meal.
