It’s the most wonderful time of the year and with the Christmas season well and truly underway, we have a huge range of festive table settings for your home that will make you the envy of all of your friends and family. So, let’s simplify entertaining at home to be an elevated Xmas dining event!


When we think of traditional Xmas table settings, candlesticks and wreaths lining the centre of the table, with Bon-Bons on the side, and the addition of timeless red and green tablecloths is what generally comes to mind for most of us. So why not embrace the classic colours of the Xmas season by implementing some of our own traditional pieces that will set your table setting above the rest.

  • Holly, jolly and bright – Implement pieces of dinnerware, servingware and napery that use colours such as red, green, gold and silver that really incorporate the traditional colours associated with the festive season.
  • Go all out! Decorate the tree tinsel laden tree with rustic wooden decorations for that country living style, tie the presents with big bows, and line the table with bells, decorations and Bon-Bons – More is more!
  • Centre of attention – with so many focal points to style in the home, you can’t go without adorning your dinner table. The dinner table is central to an Xmas get together. Pull out the good dinnerware and accent your table setting with crafted Xmas ornaments, decorative bowls filled with sparkly pine cones and accent your napery with themed placemats and table runner. Don’t forget to hang a wreath on the front door or even bring it to your dinner table as a centrepiece.

Set your sights on elevating your space

Not all homes will be lucky to have a stunning fireplace with stonework, ornate mantlepiece features let alone remodelling in marble finishes. Luckily for clever stylists, and those who have a great eye for design, focal points can easily be created with furniture.

By selecting key pieces of furniture, you’ll be able to draw the attention of your guests and create an inviting and beautiful space.


When living Down Under, it can often be a challenge to decorate for a holiday that is synonymous with winter in the Northern Hemisphere when the temperature is pushing 40 degrees plus outside. It makes sense to steer away from decorations inspired by snow or music about roasting chestnuts by a cosy fire and opt for summertime trends. When we say “summertime”, we think you can skip the koala in a Santa hat or those surfing Santa ornaments.

We understand Xmas in Australia is all about enjoying the warm weather and making the most of what’s in season, so let us show you how easy a contemporary Aussie Xmas can be!

  • Silver bells – Down Under we have one of the most unique landscapes in the world, consisting of an abundance of colourful and vibrant flora, so why not embrace this in your choice of Xmas table setting colours?! To nail this theme, you can incorporate local bush colours such as paperbark neutrals, gumtree green, silver and blue, and vibrant bottlebrush red, and put a contemporary country style with an Aussie twist on your Xmas table setting.
  • Modern country styling evokes the timeless is the natural beauty of rustic settings. Incorporating rustic wooden pieces into your table settings this Christmas can add an element of heritage and country styling. Complement decorative wooden servingware , such as a classic resin printed mango wood bowls, carved wood trays and washed white wooden candle holders for your centrepiece, creating a focal point and a talking point with your dinner guests.
  • Talk with textures – you can show your style through textiles for your table setting. Whether you’re dining in the great outdoors or preparing the head of the table for your guests, you can add your style through selection of natural fibre napery, linen look cushions and lightweight woven throws for when the evening cools.
