Christmas Table Settings

Time to start thinking about Christmas table settings.  It's never too early you know!  Why leave it until the last minute, panic, stress out and then don't bother?  There is just something about a beautifully dressed table that adds a festive feel to your Christmas celebrations.

Look about the house for things you already have such as bowls, jars, vases and christmas decorations.  Forage in the garden for greenery, pinecones, twigs and flowers to place down the centre of your table.  

Op Shops are great places to search for cutlery, crockery and glassware to add to what you already have and remember it doesn't have to match!  Your table linen softens the look and adds texture, colour and style!  We have collected some great images of some simple, neutral Christmas table settings that you can take inspiration, from just one thing to the whole look the choice is yours - get collecting or visit the Dwell @ Home shop for some interesting and unusual items for your table!

Bright Coloured Dining Rooms

If you are going to add colour to any room then the Dining Room would be a great place to go wild!  What a great room to enjoy a meal, chat and have a good laugh with friends and family over dinner and make memories.  So why not create a great atmosphere and stimulate conversation (and the appetite) with a beautiful bright coloured dining room?

You could add colour to the walls with paint or wallpaper.  A rug is a subtle (or bold) way to add colour and the starting point of a fantastic colour scheme.

Maybe it's artwork that sets the theme, or your table settings with flowers to compliment your colour palette.

You are only in the dining room to each for a short time each day so go ahead and make it memorable!
