Dynamic Designs for the Christmas Dining Table

Having the family sit down together to eat happens less and less these days. What better excuse than Christmas dinner to pull out all of the stops and let your creativity run wild with the decoration of your dining table. Ikea's blog has a lovely simple idea using lots of white candles and candle sticks, this would work equally well for a dinner party or a small wedding. Add bursts of colour as an accent, either with flowers, or with the food itself.

Heals furniture stores in the UK have some fantastic ideas if you want to go for a brighter more opulent dining room and dare to be different. The pinks and purples in this first image would work just as well for a New Year soiree.

Add some extra touches with some interesting place settings or place mats. These fantastic place settings are from Charles and Marie or you could try making your own

What are you doing for your table this Christmas? I am going have a think about it now and possibly go and collect some leaves to paint gold and scatter over the table.

Happy table decorating.
