We wish you a very natural Christmas

The next best thing to dining outdoors at Christmas is bringing the outdoors indoors.  And keeping it natural of course.  There is something very calming and relaxing about a natural Christmas as the pictures below show.  Dwell is particularly fond of a pared down natural Christmas which allows us to focus on the details, in particular the food which we love to enjoy with our families and friends amidst lots of love and laughter.  We wish you a very natural Christmas xxx

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!
