Admit it, you love to pull out all the stops for Christmas—decking out your home in festive colours, putting up an eye-popping tree, finding the perfect gifts, and creating a beautiful spread at the Christmas table. Christmas brings out the Martha Stewart in you like no other occasion can but sometimes, you want to appear like you didn’t stress too much or try too hard. You shouldn’t really have to either. We give you a range of options for styling your Christmas table so you can be the hostess with the mostest effortlessly.

Simply white

Keep it clean and fresh with crisp white crockery and serveware. Plain white tableware is incredibly versatile especially for families on a budget as it is easy to dress up for special occasions. Invest in good quality white tableware which you can transform with napkins, candles, flowers, and crackers in a feature colour or motif.
