5 Creative Ways to Decorate the Christmas Table

Celebrate in style this festive season with these expert tips!

We spoke to The Home's senior stylist, Marj Silva, to bring you creative ideas for the Christmas table setting.

Place Card Baubles

Think outside the box when it comes to guiding your guests to their seat. You can easily find inexpensive glass baubles that open and close, and make them into fun party favours! Fill them with chocolate or trinkets that suit your theme, and top with the guest's name for a sweet and special place card solution.

Rosemary Wreaths

Personalise settings with a dash of traditional charm found in mini-rosemary wreaths. Tie the base of rosemary twigs to a piece of string, and then simply tie the string ends together for a quick-and-easy napkin accessory. Oh, and it smells gorgeous too!

Christmas Mobile

With a delicious menu planned, there may not be much room left on the table to decorate with. In this case, think up! Create and hang a Christmas mobile over the dining table. You can use bamboo or dowling with drop decorations to create this simple feature piece over your feast.

Decorate With Natural Elements

Bring the outdoors in, and create interest to your stylish table with organic shapes. It's as simple as picking up a beautiful branch on your next walk around the block! This textural discovery can be laid as a statement centrepiece, or grouped in a bunch and showcased in a tall vase.

Use a Fresh Palette

Ditch the red and green this season and decorate with non-traditional shades. An Australian climate calls for a colourful Christmas, so brighten up your table with on-trend pastels and zesty shades for a truly summer-inspired setting.
