Decorate your Christmas dinner table to set a colourful stage for the delicious holiday feast you plan to serve. Use a variety of festive decor items, such as candles and pine cones, to create an inviting look. A decorated Christmas dinner table will welcome guests and set a warm tone for the evening.


To create a sophisticated table design with timeless appeal, pair a crisp white linen tablecloth with rolled cloth napkins. Up the elegance factor with gold accessories, such as gold-toned napkin rings and gold-rimmed plate chargers. Arrange gold candlesticks filled with red taper candles in a line down the centre of the table to provide warm illumination as well as a splash of colour. A vintage crystal vase filled with red roses and white calla lilies will make an eye-catching centrepiece. After dinner, treat guests to gold compote dishes filled with old-fashioned peppermint ribbon candies.


Create a cosy tablescape with a rustic decor theme. To begin, provide each guest with a red and green plaid place mat. Set a small plate filled with vibrant orange kumquats at each place; use them to hold name cards. A small grouping of potted miniature firs can become a simple and charming centrepiece, while wooden candlesticks filled with red and green taper candles will add a pop of colour to the table.


Use nature as your inspiration when decorating the Christmas dinner table. Cover the table with a white cloth and run a fragrant evergreen garland down its centre. Scatter vibrantly hued botanicals, such as oranges, persimmons, lemons and sprigs of red berries, on either side of the garland. Use large pine cones as natural guest place card holders, and light the scene with pure white tapers set into wooden candlesticks.

Winter Wonderland

Use a winter wonderland theme to design an enchanting Christmas table. Start the look by covering the table with a silvery blue cloth and sprinkling iridescent glitter over its top. Create a scene-stealing centrepiece by filling a silver urn with silver spray-painted manzanita branches and draping strings of crystals and pearls from them. Set a glass tea light holder filled with a silver candle next to each place setting.
