Create The Perfect Festive Table with Cotswold Grey
When it comes to setting your table for the big day, we believe simplicity is key. Creating an environment that feels relaxed yet still special can feel a daunting task, but rest assured! We share our top-tips to curating the perfect festive table to guarantee a magical Christmas Day that both you and your guests will treasure for years to come.
1. Create warmth and ambience with Candles.
Candles have the ability to instantly warm up a space and provide a sense of relaxation, while bringing a touch of elegance to any interior. Pair tall pillar candles with those of smaller sizes to create height and depth, and place classic tapered candles on holders to add a touch of true luxury to the table. Beautifully scented candles will also help fill the space with soothing aromas to help you and your guests enjoy a relaxing evening.
2. Use foliage and floral arrangements
Bring colour, texture and a seasonal touch to your table through the use of foliage and floral arrangements. Our range of in-store artificial flowers, crafted from luxurious Silk, are perfect for this and can be paired with Holly and Christmas tree branches to create a wonderfully festive centrepiece. We recommend using clear vases to keep the table looking fresh and clean, or place along the centre in a runner-style to help fill larger spaces. For a finishing touch, place one or two baubles into the vase and a sprig of eucalyptus for a modern and contemporary twist.
3. Ensure your table feels inviting with handwritten personalised place cards.
Make your guests feel extra special this Christmas with their own personalised place cards. Use foliage, such as pine cones and branches, as card holders and simply place on top of dinner plates to create a wonderfully inviting display. Whether you choose to handwrite or print them, we guarantee your loved ones will adore this thoughtful touch.
4. Choose a colour-way and stick to your theme using elegant accessories.
Opt for a singular colour scheme to keep your table looking fresh and orderly. Our new range of unique tableware comes in an array of designs, each with different size options that can be displayed together. Intertwine a napkin to add texture and use matching or contrasting candles and accessories for a pop of colour if desired.
5. Add cosiness to your seating arrangements
Keep your guests comfortable and warm with our luxuriously soft sheepskin seat covers. A perfect fit for both chairs and benches, these cosy covers are made from 100% New Zealand sheepskin and will add a touch of luxury to your space throughout the festive season and beyond.
