Christmas Dinner Table Decorating Ideas
16 December 2016
With just nine days to go before Christmas 2016 is upon us, lots of people are running around trying to get everything organised for the big day. One of the main events of Christmas is the delicious dinner that’s enjoyed by the whole family, and many Mums and Dads flex their creative muscles to create a beautiful table that’s fit for Saint Nick himself!

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, and it really doesn’t get much simpler than this! Just grab some wine glasses and some holly, tip them upside down and pop a little tea light on the top. If you’re feeling extra creative, why not fill your wine glasses with colourful sweets or small Christmas baubles instead?

How cute is this idea? Perfect for families with young children, turning the table into a snowman playground couldn’t be easier. Simply get your favourite white or cream plates, cutlery, napkins, carrots and raisins, and make some cute characters that the kids will love.

Candy canes aren’t just for eating y’know! These mini candy canes look great for dinner table greetings, or can even be used as place cards if you have a larger family. Just make sure to leave room to eat them after your meal!

If you’ve got a little more time on your hands, why not give this a try? Find some tree branches at the local park and carefully chisel away holes big enough to fit some tealights. A beautiful and Scandinavian-inspired Christmas table decoration that’s sure to impress your guests!
