One of our favourite parts of Christmas is gathering around the table with friends and family. It’s a place where we can leave all the weight of the year behind and soak in the joy of good conversation and laughter. 

Find the fun in styling your table by looking for trinkets around your home and forage in the garden (or your neighbors) for natural touches to create something simple and honest.


 Mix & match cutlery, plates and glassware – ask your guests to bring their faves.

 For something a little fancy, ask your older relative’s what’s in their cupboards.

 Add florals or touches of greenery from the backyard. Herbs create a sweet & fragrant touch.

   Save fallen pine cones or gumnuts to scatter on your table, Christmas tree or to string together a garland.

 Place a Christmas tree decoration on each napkin or wrap a warm bread roll.

Try your tablecloth on the diagonal to get more coverage or layer different pieces of fabric.
