Christmas Dining: The Nordic Way
Depending on your familial dynamic, Christmas dining differs greatly. Every house has its rituals; whether it be Granny at the head of the table, or dogs devouring dinner, side-by-side with the family – it’s a unique affair. This season, we can’t promise that Uncle John will chew with his mouth closed, but we can ensure your table is looking fantastically festive.
With little timesaving practicalities (hello, deceivingly realistic-looking plastic cutlery), and enough fairy lights to deck out Santa’s grotto, your table will be twinkling in no time.
This year, we’re loving the rustic, Scandinavian approach, and it’s a look that isn’t just applicable to table tops. See how the trend manifests itself within bedroom interiors, below. We just know you’ll love it!
And don’t be shy when it comes to decking the halls. Christmas decorations aren’t just for the tree, you know. Dress-up the dining room too, with baubles, wreaths, and hanging decorations to make your foodie gathering that bit more special. Mix and match the pieces you choose for that eclectic Scandi look. Traditional triumphs over contemporary, so red, white and novelty Santas are your best bet. Throw in something sparkly if you just can't quell your inner magpie!
We’re quite sure that nothing screams Christmas more so than tinsel. And we think using it as an alternative table runner / centrepiece is just a little bit genius. It adds a shimmer to your table and frees up the tree for even more hanging decorations. For a glowing touch, we’ve layered ours with some spicy-scented candles, just be careful if you choose to do the same!
Pssst: no, you can’t count laying the table as a gift! So don’t forget to grab some after-dinner pressies for whomever made your Christmas meal possible. Head over to Primarket for some super-cute bits and bobs. Toys, winter-warming essentials, novelty goodies – it’s all going on. And just in case you’re wondering, we want one of those ginormous hot chocolate mug sets!
So, turkey-carvers, bubbly-sippers, and pudding-scoffers: unite! Set the table for the chef, show some appreciation for their skills, and enjoy a festive feast under terribly-trendy circumstances, with our Scandi-inspired Christmas homeware.
