How to Do Tablescaping

You should be aiming for professionally staged, but effortlessly stylish’ table settings, according to Katrina Burroughs, Interiors Editor of The Sunday Times.

Start with the tablecloth, which must look like a piece of art in itself. Then mix it up with abundance, so nothing matches. Try and pull the look together with a theme of sorts – vintage perhaps, and mix and match your glassware and cutlery.

An overall colour or look could complement your design, like we’ve shown you here with some Christmas and nature-inspired tablescapes.

How to Dress Your Christmas Dining Table

Tablescapes should add a dramatic and memorable table setting to welcome any friends and family this Christmas.

Candles in abundance will bring theatrical lighting to your table and we recommend accessories, flowers and greenery at different heights to add impact.

Rustic charm, sophisticated elegance or log cabin-inspired comfort and warmth. You choose, just don’t forget to add the turkey!
