Seeking some festive dining inspiration? You are in the right place. Whether you are hoping for minimalist magic at your next holiday get-together, or opting for maximalist dinner table decadence to adorn only the most opulent of soirées, we have curated the seasonal set-ups that should be on everyone's Christmas list, and importantly, how to recreate them at home..
THE WINTER WHITE DELIGHT TABLE
Inspired by snow-covered December days and wishes for a white Christmas, The Winter White Delight Table is pure festive fantasy. Even better, we have specifically designed this set-up to be easily recreated with some of your classic white tablescaping staples.
Crisp white and soft green make a super fresh alternative to traditional festive pairings. Carry the colours of your floral palette and foliage throughout your table extras to keep things cohesive, with sage-patterned crockery, white linen napkins, and matching taper candles, all topped off with your best shimmering silver cutlery.
Want to add maximum interest with minimal florals? Using our Bailey bud vases to create depth, different levels, and dramatic definition is a wonderful way to work with fewer stems, as they epitomise luxury with just two to three per vase. The trick is in keeping your stems at a variety of heights for vases full of volume, as shown with our selection of roses and hypericum.
THE RUBY RED WICKSTEAD TABLE
Dialing up the holiday dazzle, The Ruby Red Wickstead Table was designed with deliciously indulgent dining in mind. Filled with jeweled tones of rich rouge and glistening gold, that take inspiration from the colour and texture of that traditional velvet stocking you once placed by the fireside, updated with a grown-up twist. Now, they lend themselves perfectly to this sophisticated setting that would work as well for a Christmas date night as it would an extravagant dinner party.
The ultimate Christmas combination; red, gold, and green should always be seen. To keep this table arrangement looking polished, stick entirely to one shade of each, rather than a tonal selection. We have opted for a rich and vibrant red, alongside deep green foliage for a classic festive feel.
Why not bring the tones of your tablescape to the rest of the room? Adorn your walls, doorframe, or mantle with our Red Berry garland and Red Berry Wreath to perfectly mirror the accents of your dining set-up.
THE EMERALD GARLAND TABLE
Capturing the essence of winter walks in the great outdoors and bringing the spirit of the season inside, The Emerald Garland Table offers wonderous woodland styling with a touch of holiday luxe. Inspired by crisp Christmas time mornings, and cosy festive nights by an open fire, this table evokes memories of yuletide tradition at their very best.
A table made with nature-lovers in mind, get ready as our free-flowing Red Berry Garland takes centre stage. Styling her could not be simpler, and the festive sparkle can be dialled up on down depending on your desired look. We have chosen to weave our wreath around ruby-red taper candles, but you could also opt for tonal florals in bud vases.
Borrow from aspects of your Red Berry Garland by highlighting seasonal berries or hypericum as individual floral place settings. This not only helps tie your entire table together, but adds a personal touch that every guest can take home with them, too.
THE ENCHANTED CHRISTMAS TABLE
Taking inspiration from twinkling Christmas lights and delicate seasonal trinkets, The Enchanted Christmas Table puts an intricate spin on classic festive styling. With dainty bud vases displaying each carefully curated stem's exquisite beauty, this is the table of choice to highlight hand-picked luxury.
Working with a smaller space? The Enchanted Christmas Table makes for the perfect mix-and-match set-up. Choose your favourite aspects - whether that be our Red Berry Centrepiece, or array of floral wonders in Bailey bud vases - then scale them back to suit your size.
This table is all about multi-tonal hues in the festive season's favourite shade. Work with everything from deep burgundy and classic rouge, to more contemporary coral reds to keep your arrangement looking modern and fresh.
THE SEASON'S CITRUS TABLE
Available exclusively in the UK, The Season's Citrus Table lends a nod to festive tradition and welcomes a new palette of warm winter tones. Summoning the scent of zesty tangerine and sweet-toned cinnamon, this is the table to help you revisit all of those childhood Christmas memories, and make new ones as you do.
This tablescape is all about texture. Bailey bud vases filled with rouge-hued skimmia are perfectly paired with the traditional fir foliage and rich-toned oranges of our Dried Citrus centrepiece. Our florist's top tip? Keep your skimmia stems long to maximise height and drama across your entire dining display.
Be inspired by The Season's Citrus Table to mix a warming festive cocktail to match! Simply blend together orange and grapefruit juice, with a touch of grenadine syrup and soda, topped with sparkling wine and - of course - a slice of seasonal citrus fruit and cinnamon sticks to garnish. Serve them up as a seasonal welcome drink to your guests on arrival.
