Festive dining tables

Intimate moments with family and friends around the dining table, with party dresses, table linens, crystal glassware, and Christmas decorations. Choose from a traditional table setting, a classic arrangement, or one that fits in with the occasion.

Setting the dining table for a festive occasion sets the tone for a wonderful get together for all. You don't have to spend a fortune to create a memorable festive table - mix it up with mismatched crockery for a casual or informal setting, or dust off the best china for sophisticated wining and dining.

If you prefer a more country or relaxed style of dining think organic. Linen, cotton and even burlap to dress the table and then adorn with pine cones, holly and greenery. For festive flair introduce LED fairly lights on the table top. 

In line with current trends, metallic finishes are a wonderful way to dress up your festive table; use Rust-Oleum metallic spray paint to makeover existing pieces in gold, copper or silver.

Keep table settings simple for an elegant dining experience. Add fresh foliage for colour, texture and decoration without the fanfare. Splurge on a quality dinner service that will last a lifetime. 

Red and white will always be a favourite for the holiday table. Drape the table with a plain or patterned tablecloth and set out white dinnerware.

A well decorated festive table provides atmosphere for all invited to partake; whether it's a full-on Christmas feast or a family breakfast, setting the table to match the mood makes all the difference.


Make any occasion special with the right dinnerware. For the festive season choose red or green and white with gold for a traditional festive dining experience - even in a casual dining space.  

Glass cloches over plain white crockery give any setting glamorous and sophisticated appeal. Add some glass vases along the centre of the table and fill with colourful flowers for an easy way to dress up any table setting.
