Build your Perfect Holiday Table

Build your Perfect Holiday Table


Posted By: Maxwell & Williams

Setting the table for the holiday period can be one of the more fun and stress-free parts of hosting the big breakfast, lunch or dinner. With inspiration from our new collections and some tried and tested favourites, we’ve set out six gorgeous settings for you to try at home.

 

Poinsettia

 

Poinsettia’s combination of red and green, and painterly Christmas icons like cherries and the Poinsettia plant make this setting the perfect look for the traditionalist holiday decorator. Simply mix with White Basics and some sage green linens and you’re ready to cheers to the season.

Garden Friends

 

 

What better way to celebrate the Southern Hemisphere holiday time than with adornments of native plants and birds. This setting not only brings colour to the table but a sense of calm on a day that can sometimes comprise overexcitement (and exhaustion!). Katherine Castle’s Garden Friends plates pair perfectly with our range of foliage inspired placemats to create a sense of tranquillity.

Diamonds

 

 

Don’t let your days of cooking and food preparation go to waste. Let the delicious spread shine on the table by setting a simple backdrop of our White Basics Diamonds collection. This idea is kept modern but still celebratory by adding pops of colour in the cutlery and a bright balloon garland – a fresh take on traditional table décor.
