A Simple Christmas Table

When it comes to Christmas there’s a tendency to go overboard with the decoration. Multi-coloured lights? Sure. Tinsel? The more the merrier. There’s no need to throw style completely out of the window during the festive period though; incorporate minimal design, fresh neutrals and clean lines with subtle seasonal touches instead to achieve an effortless look. Coggles has put together a few Christmas table ideas

#1 The Serveware

There’s no denying that food is at the heart of Christmas and so, therefore, is the table upon which it sits. The best way to decorate it is to keep colours to a minimum, sticking to a few neutral shades and textures; think a dark natural wood table covered in a crisp white linen runner and matching napkins as your base, covering the top in light grey and white pieces. Combine contemporary monochrome hues with sensory contrasting textures found on plates, serving bowls, jugs and more from the likes of Broste CopenhagenFerm Living, and Anna + Nina.

The Cutlery

To add that Christmassy feel, choose gold cutlery from Fazeek, or stay traditional with brushed silver cutlery from Bugatti. The gold provides a premium feel to the table with little need for more decoration due to its striking presence.

The Glassware

Whether they are used for water or champagne, a matching set of glassware on your table will look impeccable. There are plenty from renowned brand, Tom Dixon, ranging from champagne flutes to glass decanters, whisky glasses to premium wine glasses.

The Decorative Additions

Set the correct foundations to your Christmas table with a simple table cloth, our favourite includes the anna + nina Cheers tablecloth. Add a simple touch of warmth to the space with candles from SKANDINAVISK festive candle range, whilst choose to accompany them with the perfect candle holder. This will add dimension to the table and become the perfect Christmas table centrepiece feature.
