Our stylists love making tables feel extra special by creating a place setting for each person. Grab some lovely linen-cotton napkins, tied with festive decorations, or even just some string with fragrant herbs and spices. Tying up some cinnamon with your napkin will add delicious Christmas smells to the room, or you could opt for rosemary which looks great paired with native gums.
In classic Aussie style, we recommend keeping the dinnerware simple. Think traditional white plates and silver cutlery. You can add colour to other elements of the table. Christmas crackers are a great way to add colour if they fit the theme. If you can't find the right colour cracker, you can get your DIY on and make your own or wrap ribbons around any bonbon in a colour that suits your table.
Following these decorating ideas will help make your Christmas party extra special. Forget candy canes, cranberries or plaid - you can achieve a beautiful Christmas look with a modern flair more suitable to holidays in Australia.
