5 tips a stylist swears by to make your Christmas table shine

Make your Christmas table look the best it's ever looked!

The table is the centre of every home on Christmas day, where food and family gather. So if you're looking to give your Christmas table an extra bit of love and attention, stylist, Natasha Hockley, provides five simple ways you can do so on a budget. 

1. Pick a theme

Decide on your theme for the season and don’t be afraid to embellish your Christmas table with miniature ornaments or bon bons for an extra special festive feel, like these metallic Christmas bon bons available at BIG W.

2. Create layers

The table is the perfect place to create layers that take the eye on a visual journey. Experiment with stacking plates and bowls to 'wow' your guests on arrival. Always start with the largest items on the bottom and build upon this. A metallic charger plate is a perfect addition to any festive table.

3. Glam your glasses

'Tis the season for cheer! Stylish stemware will delight your guests and family members. The Lustre range from BIG W is sure to be a crowd pleaser and look fabulous on the big day.

4. Mix and match 

Mix & match your platters and grazing boards in the centre of the table for nibbles and Christmas treats. Not only does this create a stunning visual but it allows you to introduce seasonal serve ware for extra awe. Star shaped platters and plates are perfect at this time of year.

5. Add greenery

Finally, add some organic greenery to your table using fresh herbs or floral arrangements. This can be featured in glass pitchers or in vases and the aroma of fresh herbs will delight the senses.
