Art de la table Christmas


studioReskos has masterfully captured this festive table setting. This photograph is part of a series that captures rustic and contemporary takes on Christmas table ideas. With an earthy and natural aura, thanks to the sunset colour scheme and raw materials, this setting is reminiscent of a Tuscan or Mediterranean summer. Just because the weather is dreary and grey outside in the UK, doesn't mean you can't pick a theme that transports you to another place for the day. Don't forget, Christmas on a global scale doesn't involved snow and mulled wine. For some, it means beach cricket and cold beers!

Doe, a deer!

The amount of songs and stories that are written about Reindeers, or Rudolph in particular are endless, and so, these Nordic creatures are now forever present in our Christmas decorations. Whether hanging on a tree, or put together in a beautiful centre piece for the table like the one pictured, Reindeers always hold a special place in our hearts. This rustic arrangement has a touch of greenery, wooden textures and burnt, tarnished tones, creating a modern take on a traditional theme. This image is also photographed by studioReskos.

Classic & elegant

Expect the unexpected

The festive season is the one time of year we need to be prepared to have unexpected guests or family members drop in, so it is important to make sure we have a suitable amount of boards and platters to serve up nibbles and cakes. These wooden board by Harch Wood Couture come with a little love heart in every corner, with no two boards being made the same. Now, a boring cheese or fruit platter will have a certain country or rustic charm! Like pictured, you can easily match these boards with other Christmas oriented decorations, such as the candle holders with bows and Christmas coloured napkins. Tres chic! 


Light:  Household by Skandihome

Candles are such an important part of the Christmas table. Since the middle ages, we have used a large candle in our homes to represent the star of Bethlehem that lead the wise men to Jesus. Aside from being a wonderful centre piece to a Christmas dinner table, candles were once used to decorate Christmas trees as well— thankfully far safer options have been invented! Depending on your love for candles, you can light a series if one is not enough, creating a sparkle and twinkle to your Yuletide dinner! Skandi Home brings us the elegant gold lipped candle that is pictured. It is available in three different sizes, so there is definitely one to suit you!
