It’s that time of year when stress levels rise thinking about the preparation for the big day when you have family and friends over. You are in charge and in control of making sure the turkey is cooked to perfection and served up on time with all the trimmings?! But are you dinner party ready? Here are some top ideas to help you plan.

Firstly, the focal piece is the table. You want a dining table that is not only practical but stylish too. When it is so prominent in your kitchen or dining room, although its main purpose is functionality it doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful all year round too!

Secondly, your seating around your dining table. Do you want the practically of dining chairs that can be wiped down after sticky little hands have been sitting at the table, or thinking of something more opulent and grander such as rich velvets?

Finally, how is the table going to be dressed? There are endless ideas of table décor and tableware to really give your guests the wow factor. Ideal home have collated a fantastic set of ideas to gain lots of inspiration from, no matter what your style. Modern, glamour, timeless, Victoriana, the list of styles are endless, and you can really bring your creativity into full force.

Its always a lovely time to get children involved in crafting some special bits too, adding a unique touch. Salt dough ornaments and decorations not only provide some great entertainment value and lots of messy glitter, but can add that final touch to your Christmas table and really make it feel like a festive family occasion! The great thing about salt dough is that the decorations last and can become a staple part of your yearly Christmas decorations too.

Whatever your style, all the team at Housecosy wish you all a very merry Christmas!!
