Your to do list is most likely coping ticks all over the place. The good/completed/done kind, not the bush walk/blood sucking kind.
Now it is time to plan the extra little touches for the day, starting with how you are going to dress the table.
I will be keeping things simple and not making any extra work for myself, hopefully. I am taking inspiration from a few of the table dressings below plus I have my eye on some kangaroo paw (the plant, not skippy) that is in bloom down in the park for a cost-effective centre piece. I think I will be taking a late afternoon “walk” on Christmas Eve with a pair of scissors, shhh!
I hope you get some inspiration too. Oh, and my table will have paper plates because at the sink is NOT the perfect place to spend Christmas Day!
These first two are from Yummy Mummy Kitchen. You can see how I am thinking I need greenery. So pretty and not over done. I love the hessian table runner, and I just happened to pick one up at a local discount shop. Score!
Still with the runner and a little bit of green. I also love the special Christmas starter cocktail. This table was found on French Larkspur.
Sugar and Charm have put together this setting and I love the little gifts in each place. Hmm, now I am wondering how to incorporate? Maybe using some no bake goodies that I have been reading about. I can do that!
This is actually a wedding setting but I love the simplicity and abundance of nature. I would switch around the candles for fat ones too, just because of personal preference. This is from Once Wed. Do you like skinny candle-sticks?
And just to mix it up and highlight how my brain works, a completely different style of setting that I am loving the guts out of. White with neutral tones. I could even see a pop of colour in there and it would be a fitting beachside setting. From Sarah Sherman Samuel.
On a little Christmasy side note: Spotify have THE BEST Christmas playlists going on. This one is in overdrive at our house but they all get a run.
Do you like to dress your table for the big meal? Listening to carols already?
