Its nice to create a tabletop for Christmas day that has impact, to make the day memorable rather than repeating what you did the year before. One way to do this is to mix and match china – a new accent plate, with a bold pattern, will really update your existing china and wine glasses and reduce the cost of investing from scratch. New placemats, napkins, candles, sparklers and fir cones will also add a new twist.
Perhaps the most dramatic and festive of all the Christmas table styles is Ski Chalet Luxe, (shown here) a style that mixes traditional red and white with accent plates decorated with folk art patterns in black. A felt placemat completes the look. For more Christmas decorating ideas, using this dramatic colour scheme, see our December issue, out now!
