Unusual (and easy) festive table decor for a stylish Christmas dinner

We all have that one friend or relative who trims up their house like it’s in an interiors mag come December.

Where we tolerate embrace the Christmas chaos of half-working lights and tinsel of indeterminate age, they perfect Scandi chic and showstopping trees with muted colour schemes. But, when it comes to the dinner table at least, it’s not as hard as you think to style a Christmas to impress.

Scroll through our gallery below for unusual – and importantly, easy – decoration inspiration for this year’s Christmas table. We’ve got statement centrepieces, personalised place settings and, of course, a touch of natty Nordic class.

Bring on the hosting, because we’ve got this...
