Today I’ve been trialling my Christmas table decor – this year I’m going for white, gold and silver to match my decorations!
I will probably tweak bits of this on the day but here’s the preview!
Tablecloth – Home Bargains
Table runner – Link
Close up of the tablecloth and runner together. These are bargain crackers from B&M – very happy with these!
Crackers – B&M (£3.99 for 10)
Snowflake Tealight Holder – The Range
Placemats – from Next (similar ones currently in B&M too)
These napkins are a little fiddly but think they look great! I’m on the hunt for star shaped chocolates to put at the top though! My napkins had silver one side and white the other, one napkin can be used and will give white and silver alternate layers or you can put two back to back (like I have done) and get all silver.

Silver napkins from Asda
Gold stars are from a pack of foil confetti
This beauty in the middle is part of the same range as my garlands and wreath – again I’ve added a few silver baubles to match my theme!
The gold and cream one is currently out of stock but here are the other colours:
Table Centrepiece (gold and copper) – Link
Table Centrepiece (silver) – eBay Link
The chairs have also been decorated in matching colours as above!
Silver Ribbon (one roll was enough for 8 chairs plus spare) – Link
Gold Poinsettias (bunch of 7) – eBay Link
They also come in silver:

Step 1 – measure out the length of ribbon you need and cut a piece off the roll – I used the floor as my guide for these (pull around the top like pictured and cut the ends where its near the floor)
Step 2 – Knot the ends together once
Step 3 – Create bunny ears and tie into a bow (the usual method of tying bows didn’t produce as neat bows)
Step 4 – once the bunny ears are tied they should look like this
Step 5 – fan out each side of the bow by holding each edge and pulling apart
Step 6 – Once fanned out, it should look like this – adjust the bows until they are equal
Step 7 – fold each end in half and cut at a diagonal
Step 8 – Once cut each end should have a little triangle cut out like this
Step 9 – Wrap the wire stem of the flower around the middle of the bow like so
Step 10 – Straighten the bows and flower into place and it’s done!
And there’s the overall effect!
Lots of love
