Five Festive Table Themes for a Stylish Christmas

It's the most wonderful time of the year as we gather with friends and family to enjoy glorious food, get competitive playing Monopoly and sing a long to favourite Christmas carols! If you are hosting this festive period, help set the scene with a gorgeous dinner table in celebration. There are so many themes you can pick from, so we have picked our 5 best Christmas table themes for 2021 and how you can recreate them easily at home. So grab your mince pie and mulled wine and get inspired for Christmas interior designing!

Traditional Twist

A classic Christmas table featuring colours of gold, red and green is stylish with a nod to traditional seasonal shades - and doesn't have to be boring! Natural decorative items help create the traditional theme such as dried red berries, pine cones and luscious green foliage, whilst gold accessories such as cutlery or candle holders adds that twist of  luxury vibe. Our bunch of gold leaves Christmas decoration available online is a winner for table decor at Christmas time!

Magnolia the Florist can help with the table setting decorations, such as designing a bespoke table wreath using seasonal foliage and nestle a beautiful candle in the centre.

Touch of Luxe

There are a few colour options for Christmas Luxe style so you can get creative; firstly pick a metallic such as copper, rose gold or silver and then pick your focal colour – we love icy blue, blush pink, emerald green or teal for opulent luxury shades.  

For the luxe look at home for your Christmas table, lay the settings with cutlery in your chosen metallic colour, champagne flutes for the bubbles, and add hints of your focal colour with napkins, velvet baubles and other sumptuous decorations in luxury materials. A centre piece of fresh flowers in a stylish vase will be the perfect finishing touch – luxury cream roses with sparkly decorative twigs in your chosen metallic will have you and your guests dreaming of white Christmas!

Scandi Style

The Scandi style for Christmas is pretty cool and minimal; with a mix of natural textures, sleek lines and industrial metals. It also has the added bonus that it fits in with New Year Eve celebrations. Our florists recommend using silvery foliage such as eucalyptus on the table, investing in matte black accessories such as candle holders , crisp white linen and add faux fur throws over the seats or silver Geo print cushions for Scandi warmth.

For a Scandinavian style table centre piece with a twist, we love the idea of using plants! A couple of green houseplants or smaller cacti in stylish Scandi inspired pots in the centre of the table look fab, and can even add a few festive decorations to them if you wish - just  keep them neutral.

Wild & Rustic

Popular for its eco-friendly options, a Rustic table theme is easy to create at home. Start saving jam jars and glass containers to use as tea light holders, use twine or hessian to add natural touches and cut green foliage or wild roses from your garden as plate decoration. Dried fruits such as oranges, berries, cinnamon sticks and pine cones also look fabulous in a vase as a centrepiece and smell divine too.

Rainbow Pop

For something a bit different this festive season, how about Rainbow theme? You can have fun using bright colours for a modern look (which also works well all year round for table themes so worth the investment) by using baubles, coloured fairy lights in a vase, rainbow napkins....the list goes on!
