Festive decorations for a beautiful dinner table
Dining with family and friends is one of the best things, especially if you’ve gone all out with food and drinks. Whether you’ve spent the day in the kitchen yourself or have ordered in, everything tastes better when enjoyed sitting at a beautifully decorated table! Read on for our tips on creating a beautiful table setting for any occasion.
Step 1: Create a good base with a tablecloth
A festive table starts with a beautiful tablecloth. It gives the table a warm, inviting look. Select a tablecloth than can be machine-washed for ease, and re-used for sustainability. Cotton is a great fabric for this and can be machine-washed.

If you have something special to celebrate, such as a wedding or birthday, or are hosting a dinner party, create your very own personalised tablecloth featuring your photos of choice. It will be a great surprise for everyone, as well as a conversation starter.
Step 2: Beautiful, shiny glasses
A festive table wouldn’t be festive without beautiful glasses. Keep your glasses nice and shiny by hand-rinsing them as much as possible, as this helps prevent limescale and glass corrosion. No-one likes a dull glass!

If you’re celebrating a special occasion, you can have special glasses made featuring the text of your choice, such as names and/or a date. If you’re celebrating an anniversary, have beautiful champagne flutes engraved for the happy couple, featuring their names or initials. We also offer water glasses, wine glasses, beer glasses, tea glasses and many more!
Step 3: A chique decanter
A beautiful decanter is a must for a beautifully decorated table. Fill it with wine, water or juice. Especially when drinking wine, your guests will appreciate being able to pour themselves a glass of water on the side. Add a few mint leaves and a lemon wedge or fresh fruit to add flavour. The decanter can be refilled throughout the evening.

Step 4: Beautiful wooden serving platters
If you are serving fresh french bread, tasty dips or a cheese board, use our beautiful wooden serving platters. You can choose from round, oblong or square wooden platters, which can be engraved with the text of your choice and one of our lovely designs.

Step 5: Luxurious cotton napkins
No festive table is complete without beautiful napkins. You can go for fun paper serviettes, or sustainable cotton napkins, which can be machine-washed. Fold your napkins or add a fancy napkin ring and place one on each plate to complete your festive table setting!

Step 7: Add soft light with candles
Your table is looking pretty good by now with a beautiful tablecloth, napkins, glasses and wine cooler. Now it’s time to add some lovely soft light with candles! Candles create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Just make sure to keep things safe and ensure they aren’t too near anything else on your table.

Step 8: Festive decorations
The final step is for those who have some space left over! Complete your table setting with small decorations, such as pine cones in autumn, beautiful flowers in spring or Christmas decorations for Christmas dinner, such as this cute snow globe which can be personalised with the photo of your choice.
