Scandinavian style table dressed for christmasChristmas table with antlers and table runner
Christmas table decoration with candles and pineconesAs you probably know I love interiors and good design, and while I've only hosted Christmas dinner once I love throwing a good party, whether it's the wild ones from my younger years or a more civilised sit down affair, so getting into the festive spirit I decided to dress my table for Christmas and have a few friends over for some feasting.

So whenever I'm out I love to keep my eye open for pieces that would work well on a table and oftern buying the odd thing here or there. After a trip to Copenhagen I fell in love with this mug which I was served coffee in at the Kunst Museum, when I got home I tracked it down and promptly shipped some over.

For me it's all about the details, I love to add those extra touches that make your guests feel special. For this table I have gone for cooler colours channeling a scandi vibe choosing pale blues, whites, greys and silvers. 

Christmas decorations on table for dinner partyI used this rather beautiful antler from the wonderful Bouton to create a dramatic centre piece, some wooden stars from Hobbycraft, and this rather fetching glittery silver christmas tree candle which I picked up from TK Maxx in their Christmas shop. I would definitely recommend a browse there as you can pick up some real bargains.

I layered the plates and used some foliage to dress them, as well as adding some foil confetti to the table to make it fun. I also added some Jaime Oliver wine glasses and vintage grey smoked glass tublers for water, I only wish I had a good decanter.
