Ah, Christmas dinner - 25th December’s greatest highlight. Sat around the table surrounded by those we love… roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and pigs in blankets. As we bring together our loved ones for flavours and feasting, it’s essential that our table is looking on-point, after all, what good is a plate of grub without the Insta photo to prove its deliciousness? With our wonderful selection of kitsch, and classic, kitchenware, we’re ready to dress your table to perfection from as little as £1.50!
The hustle and bustle of Christmas day dinner is sure to cause a little fluster. As the oven bellows smoke and your pigs escape their blankets, stress levels are likely to rise. Though we can’t guarantee your roast potatoes will be crisp, we can make sure you’re sitting comfortably on the chicest table in town. Whether you’re feeding the five thousand with a family gathering, or cosying up with your nearest and dearest, our value prices are a definite crowd pleaser. Remember, no matter what your menu has to offer, a well-dressed table always suggests good taste.
When it comes to prepping for your Christmas feast, a table cloth is essential. Boring, we know, but a block colour of white (or red, obviously) is the perfect off-set to a seriously glam look. Lay out your cloth and get to work! A table runner will bring a colour scheme together, so our reversible red-to-grey option is ideal. Coordinate your place mats and coasters for a contemporary feel that’s pretty and practical.
Next on our checklist? Candles. These are a must for a warming glow that invites friends and family to your foodie feast – keep away from the Christmas pud until it’s time for dessert…
Like a well-stuffed Christmas cracker, we’re brimming with nifty ideas for those finishing touches. Baubles should never be restricted to the Christmas tree, those bad boys should decorate anything and everything. Try filling a mason jar with mini baubles and a few holly sprigs for an easy DIY centrepiece (swirl fairy lights inside for a romantic touch!), and spruce up those name cards by tying to mini candy canes – cheeky sweet starter? Yes, please. Don’t forget the napkins for those post-pud fingertips, now you’re officially ‘set’!
Of course, it’s not all about how your living space looks this Christmas (ahem…), it’s a time for bringing together those we love, eating too much, sleeping too much and, well, eating far too much. But we may as well do so in serious style, so head in store to pick up your table top essentials and enjoy your day as the ultimate host!
