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 perhaps 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 a top trend for 2023. Another trend that remains as popular as ever is pastel pink. Although this year, we’re pairing, rose-tinted hues with red for modern glamour! Finally, we couldn’t resist the beauty of a bold black & gold table setting...

A Green & Gold Festive Table

The Green & Gold theme is all about subtle colour and festive foliage. 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!

Embracing the glamorous theme, garlands are our go-to for instantly transforming the look and feel of your Christmas table. Bringing instant glamour to your decor, a gorgeous gold or faux foliage garland along the table ensure a decadent dining experience worthy of the occasion. In addition, finishing touches are incredibly important and can take everyday tableware to the next level for your festive feast. Christmas only happens once a year so you may as well have a little fun! Therefore why not add a selection of colourful green, gold and pink dinner candles, forest green honeycomb Christmas trees and vintage gold rim glassware to your final look to tie everything together?

Bold Black & Gold Christmas Table Setting

A great alternative to traditional red or green, black and gold is a classic colour combo 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 to creating a chic black and gold table setting is to go all out. So, invest in your tableware and let your additional accessories do the talking.

While a minimal scheme is great for everyday meals, we adore a maximalist approach to entertaining at Christmas. Firstly, a fabulous set of Christmas crackers is essential. This year, the Dark Floral design is one of our favourites and pairs perfectly with the black and gold theme. In addition, decorative objects help create drama. If you’re looking to add extra magic to your scheme, introduce the ambience of candlelight and a few finishing touches. From gorgeous gold stars to battery-powered twinkling fairy lights, the more glitz and glamour at Christmas, the better!

Perfect Pink Christmas Table Setting

It’s hard to resist the power of pink! Probably one of our favourite trends from the past few years, dusky pink tones are going nowhere. So, why not embrace a beautiful pink palette this Christmas?! As a departure from classic Christmas styling, the rose-tinted trend adds statement style to your table setting…

Chic and fabulously feminine, shades of pink have become a new neutral in interiors and are guaranteed to draw attention. While beautiful on its own, we love pairing pink with accents of glamorous gold and red. A match made in heaven; this modern Christmas table setting idea is perfect for Christmas parties and entertaining. While you can never go wrong with fresh foliage at Christmas, we also love fairy lights on a tablescape for festive twinkle flair. Alternatively, why not use one of our Up & Over Table Clamps to create a fabulous backdrop of red and pink paper honeycombs? And last but not least, add a set of rose pink glassware and voila, you’ve created the Christmas dining table of dreams…
