Take crisp white linen as your base, then simply add some stylish cutlery, china and glassware and arrange neatly; decorate with a festive centre-piece and candelabras and for the perfect finishing touch use glitzy napkin rings and fun crackers. Then just add that delicious Christmas food – your recipe for the perfect Christmas table!
Opulence rules when it comes to celebrating; a heady mix of Plato china (plates £40 each), Ellipse cutlery (£17 set of 4 pieces) and Loop candelabras (£16) and the centrepiece hurricane lamp (£30) from John Lewis all present the ideal setting for the Christmas feast.
Villeroy & Boch Flow tableware and black crystal goblets offer an altogether more contemporary, cutting edge inspiration for a Christmas table; ideal for a minimalist look as featured here.
Alternatively go completely over the top and team with black linen, decorated with elements from the pearlescent Christmas theme from John Lewis.
This uses silver as the core colour combined with white, soft chambray blue, and oyster, all of which beautifully complement the ultra-sophisticated and stylish platinum tree; Wow Goblet £12. Plate from £6.95, Bowl £9.50, Glover & Smith Pewter salt and pepper bowls £21 each.
The 2007 John Lewis Christmas ranges include gorgeous trees, wreaths, decorations, lights, gifts, cards, packaging and foodie treats – in fact everything you could possibly need to make your Christmas as enjoyable as possible.
