Break tradition to suit your style

You don’t need to buy traditional red, green and gold Christmas table linen and décor, especially if it clashes with your home décor.

Instead, use table linen that you already have and add festive touches with gold accents or inexpensive festive items like homemade salt dough star-shaped place setting décor.

Use what you have and borrow what you need

If you’re hosting a big family Christmas this year, don’t feel compelled to buy new dining furniture to accommodate everyone. Instead, use foldout patio tables you may already own or borrow some from family members.

You can set up the tables in any formation you like and create a cohesive look by using the same coloured tablecloths.
