My four top tips for setting the Christmas table

1. Keep a limited colour theme

 

By keeping the colour on your Christmas day table limited to just a few, the setting will feel spacious and leave the food to do the talking. I find laying a white table cloth like a blank canvas. Perfect for building up the setting, layer by layer.
