Home: Christmas Table

Christmas Eve is nearly here, so it’s time to prepare everything – mostly the time to enjoy ourselves. I don’t know about you, but I enjoy myself the most in a pretty festive setting – the candles lit everywhere, the tree standing in the room, just being pretty, the food ready AND the table looking fabulous.

In our family, it’s become a tradition that I prepare the table for our Christmas dinner. I’ve always loved it and tried to think of something new every year. I’m still thinking what to do this year, so I gathered some inspiration that I’d like to share with you.

 

Štedrý deň je takmer za dverami, takže je najvyšší čas pripraviť sa na sviatky – a na to, aby sme si ich poriadne užili. Neviem ako vy, ale ja si ich viem najlepšie užiť v krásnom vianočnom prostredí – pri zapálených sviečkach, krásnom stromčeku, pri skvelom jedle A úžasne prestretom stole.

V našej rodine sa začalo akosi tradovať, že sviatočný stôl na štedrú večeru pripravujem vždy ja. Odmalička ma to bavilo a už teraz sa teším, ako opäť vymyslím niečo nové. Doma u rodičov je to celkom jednoduché, keďže máme peknú bielu kuchynskú linku na mieru, ktorá dokonale zapadá do vianočnej nálady, a tak je ľahké zladiť s ňou takmer čokoľvek. Niekedy som výzdobu ladila do červenej s množstvom krásnych vianočných ruží, inokedy som stavila na rozprávkovú bielu a metalické farby. Téma zimnej rozprávky sa mi stále páči, tento rok by som však k nej predsa len chcela pridať ešte niečo extra. Keďže ešte stále zbieram inšpiráciu, rozhodla som sa dnes s vami o ňu podeliť.

A big branch with some christmas balls hung over the table are a perfect idea if you have a place for them 🙂 I don’t, but it looks great, especially with some vintage-looking decorations.

This is much closer to my own setting – all white, with a touch of nature in the house. I love the natural table runner and the simplicity of it all.

I fell in love with this idea right away. How lovely are the cranberries and greens in the glasses? I need to look for some berries around here…

The white + golden combination is what I’ve been going for for the past couple of years. It’s pretty, elegant, simple and creates a real winter fairytale at home. What do you think?

Another lovely and simple idea 🙂

If you find the tartan plates, this might be the most royal setting you can get. Just pretend that you’re having Christmas at a Balmoral castle and waiting for the queen to appear 😀

I love this idea, because it’s so cute! I love the colors, the soft transparent balls on the white branches, the unexpected flowers – everything! Although I have no idea where I’d get the spring flowers in December…

I have to admit, I never thought how pretty the pomegranates could look as a decoration! How great is this centerpiece?

Reindeers, deers and their friends are always a good idea!
