Put It All On The Table
Always wondered how people create those beautifully laid tables for Chrissy lunch? You’re probably thinking that mustn’t be cheap ... well it can be.
Here are some of my favourite looks via Pinterest.
It’s not as hard as it looks. And... even better, you can achieve the look without spending a fortune. You can’t go past a classic Aussie inspired Christmas setting. Think fresh summer linens, vibrant florals, raw timber, coastal blues, dirty muted tones - simple and fitting for a sunny Christmas day.
It’s all in the detail, so you’ll need to arrange a few pieces - here are my picks. Just remember, much like any type of styling, you need to create layers with table linen, dinnerware & glassware, cutlery, napery, decoration, lighting, and my favourite touch is some fresh flowers or foliage.
