Modern Christmas Table Setting Ideas
Christmas dinner is an event we look forward to all year! While the food is always a highlight, Christmas also allows us to spend time together and reflect on the past year. The perfect setting for gathering everyone together, we believe your table is just as important as the Christmas tree. So, if you’re anything like us, chances are you’ll be thinking about how to decorate your table in sensational style! With that in mind, we’ve put together three modern Christmas table setting ideas that will enchant your guests this Christmas…
First of all, the secret to a great table scheme lies in your essentials. Therefore, don’t forget the importance of fabulous festive tableware! From plates and cutlery to napkins and platters, tableware is key to achieving your final look. Another key consideration has to be your decorations and finishing touches. Maybe you’re planning a glamorous green and gold theme? Or maybe you’re drawn towards a decadent dining table with a bold black colour palette? Either way, no Christmas table is complete without a few festive flourishes! We love any excuse to entertain and Christmas is the ideal occasion to celebrate in style. So, don’t be afraid to go all-out with your decorations - the more maximalist the theme of your modern Christmas table setting, the better!
Inspired by the latest trends, we’ve curated three top themes to explore in your home this year. Because of our desire to reconnect with nature, green remains the top trend for 202o. Another trend that remains as popular as ever is pastel pink. Although this year, we’re pairing, rose-tinted hues with gold for extra glamour! Finally, we couldn’t resist the beauty of a bold black table setting...
Boldly Black Christmas Table Setting
A great alternative to traditional red or green, black is a classic colour that looks amazing with everything. Due to its dark and dramatic palette, black looks fantastic all year round but really comes alive at Christmas! The secret of creating a chic black table setting is to keep things simple. So, invest in your tableware and let your additional accessories do the talking.

Green & Gold Glamour
In contrast to the black table trend, the Green & Gold theme is all about colour and playful pattern. Combining natural elements with party pieces, our modern Christmas table settings ideas are designed to inspire! While green is a colour with its origins in nature, gold introduces warmth and luxury to any setting. As a result, this trend achieves balance and creates a beautiful backdrop for your Christmas dinner!
