Maxwell & Williams' longstanding, must-have White Basics range is the perfect starting point when it comes to building a table setting for the holiday season.

Whether you want to stay traditional and use Christmas inspired tableware to decorate this year, or try something fresh and new, we’ve got you covered with these four table settings sure to impress!


Offset your White Basics with the stark contrast of the charcoal-rimmed Charlton range to create a high contrast monochrome setting.

Set with Elemental black cutlery and match with black and white floral arrangements. A white napkin tied with black ribbon will complete the look.

Classic Christmas

To create an elegant yet festive setting, style a textured version of Maxwell & Williams' classic white collection: White Basics Diamonds with gold-rimmed Swank side plates, Elemental gold cutlery and gold napkins.

Add to the festive glow with candles, fairy lights and Yuletide servingware pieces. Finish with a small sprig of greenery and handwritten name cards for your guests.

Colourful Christmas

Mixing vibrant colours with your White Basics is a fun way to liven up your table. Choose a modern tablecloth and add bright side plates from our Wayfarer range, napkins and new Pete Cromer coasters. Set with copper Elemental cutlery and serve a colourful drink to get the party started.

White Basics

For a refined dining experience, layer your whites and top each setting with linen napkins in a muted tone, silver cutlery all atop a beautiful linen tablecloth. We chose a midnight linen to truly offset the bright white of the tableware.

Opt for a low height, fresh floral arrangement as a finishing touch. Keep the foliage contemporary by mixing natives and cottage garden sprigs with more traditional blooms.
