1. Consider a colour palette other than red and green
Red and green may be traditional Christmas colours but a neutral palette of white and metallics paired with fresh greenery make an effortlessly elegant tablescape.
2. Make your table holly jolly
A little bit of holly strewn across your table adds an instant festive flair. Alternatively, consider dressing each guest’s place setting with a sprig of holly placed on napkins.
3. Consider going rustic chic
What a rustic tabletop lacks in colour, it more than makes up for in style. Simple, clean, natural and fresh, this look is easy to pull together with linen, burlap, pine boughs and candlelight.
