I’ve teamed up with Out & Out Original for some dining table styling. I’ve created a guest board on Pinterest that you can see here. I like styling dining tables even if it’s not for something special. I don’t like leaving a table empty. For Christmas I’ve come up with really simple styling of this beautiful oak table. I’ve decorated with boxes in white and gold, chocolates, candle holders and Christmas decorations. I don’t think all of the decorations have to go on the Christmas tree.
Eucalyptus is something I love at Christmas time. A couple of branches in a vase will last you the whole Christmas period.
If you push your dining table up against a wall you can easily add a few plants or accessories without it taking up too much space. Here’s an example. I think the most important thing is to have a dining table that you can extend. I remember from when I was younger that we used to extend our dining table for family occasions, Christmas being one of them. It was nice to have everybody around the same table.
