Its that time again....its time to think about the Christmas holiday decor and Xmas dinner table! Everyone I have spoken to has had a crazy busy year, and with keeping that in mind I have decided to keep with a minimalist holiday decor style. The inspiration I have put together for you today is both beautiful and uncomplicated, slightly organic. As during the busy holiday season life can get hectic, so it is great to find decorating materials from your own back yard to compliment this simple, yet stylish look. As we all know the saying 'less is more' and minimalist styling is on trend in a big way at the moment. So I am going to show you how to style your Xmas dining table and impress your guests. Here is a small checklist which doesn't cost the earth and wont take all day to pop together, so you can concentrate on the more important things...like not burning that turkey! Here's how to decorate this years Xmas dining table using the minimalist style look!
1.Garland - To make your Christmas dining table shine you only need a few carefully selected objects. Can I suggest a garland of live pine or gum tree, a few sprigs of rosemary can look simple and also elegant. And offers a unique take on a traditional holiday centrepiece.
2. Linen - Here I have paired with a linen table runner and napkins (not matching)...which gives a homey, cosy vibe to this holiday table.
3. Cutlery - I have chosen the two toned black and gold cutlery in Kingscote design from Shaynna Blaze, gives that glamorous and sophisticated modern edge.
4. Candlelight - Candlelight creates an intimate vibe with a touch of luxe to this table, smaller and lantern candles give a more casual relaxed feel. Use long stemmed candles for a more formal look.
5. Dinner Set - Here I have chosen the mismatched bread and butter plate from Ellen Degeneres designed by Royal Doulton, paired with a black ceramic dining plate to give a more contemporary feel to this setting. I have chosen to only have a linen runner and not tablecloth to showoff the gorgeous oak table top. Layered in greenery plucked from the backyard for a hint of natural texture to finish this considered festive table.
Hope these tips will come in handy when you create your Xmas dinner table. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a fabulous year ahead.
