How-to Videos: 3 Stunning Christmas Table Setting Ideas
There’s nothing I adore more than Christmas, and when it comes to creating an amazing tablescape I am well and truly in my element. While the tree tends to be the focus during the festive season, you should never overlook the beauty and impact a well-styled Christmas table setting can bring to your home.
I caught up with the team from Metricon recently to style up a festive storm in their display homes, snap the festive tables and record some how-to videos while I was at it, to show you how easy it is to create three different but equally stunning Christmas table settings; Scandi, Global Fusion and Maison Classique – using your home’s existing design as an inspiration point.
A Scandi Christmas Table Setting
A Scandinavian Table setting is all about clean lines and subdued colours. The exception when it comes to a Christmas table setting – as you can see here – is that an accent colour like red really elevates the look and allows the space to feel more festive. White and blonde timbers are still as present as ever, though, and bringing in some elements from the garden is a great idea, too. The best part about Christmas table styling is that you can draw ideas and inspiration from your home’s existing designs and bring it onto the table. More on this in the video below.
A Global Fusion Christmas Table Setting
As the name suggests, a Global Fusion setting meshes international styles and really gives you the freedom to go non-traditional with your colour story. This table setting is all about mixing eclectic pieces you’ve collected from your travels and utilising coppers, reds, rich browns and blacks. Metallics are trending hard at the moment, so if you’re a fan of those you’ll love the Global Fusion theme. It also allows you to create real wow moments with individual place settings, which are explained in more details in the video below.
A Maison Classique Christmas Table Setting
If you love all things French, you’ll find the Maison Classique table setting to be right up your alley. This look is a modern take on a traditional French look, pairing new items with your treasured possessions and allowing silver and glass pieces to shine. Somewhat softer and possibly more feminine, there’s a real sense of luxury and sophistication to this setting. So if you like your Christmas to feel a little more formal, check out the video below to see how you can make the Maison Classique look work for your home!
Three three themes for this Christmas table setting story were taken from Metricon’s Lookbook, which is a fabulous source of decorating inspiration online. With oodles of images to look at, you can find a style in the Lookbook that you love and discover ways to make it shine in your own space. It should also be noted that the pieces in these three style stories came from Adairs.
