Planning your Christmas table setting this year needn't be difficult! So many of the roundup articles I found had lame, dated or just downright confusing examples of how to decorate your table. I wanted to do something different!
Before you scroll on for some festive ideas for your Christmas table decor, be sure to get your free printable watercolour Christmas table decor (below). You can download the editable place cards, typing in your guest's names before printing. The napkin wrappers come in two sizes; a large size with a Merry Christmas Wreath and a smaller size with a cute foliage Christmas pattern.
I'll also include a video below of how I put this table decor decor (it's super easy!).

I always have the odd year where I need to do everything blue. Yes strange, given I'm a pink girl!

I also love the crushed velvet ribbon around the cutlery.
Beautiful Australian Christmas Inspiration
I love seeing the pretty colours and florals of my home country making such a beautiful splash at Christmas.
My favourite table settings are the earthy and rustic-looking tablescapes this year. I'm really in love with the warm, natural and muted Australian theme. Living in Australia I am so used to a warm Christmas, I haven't even seen snow… ever! It's nice to see some gorgeous themes and colour palettes that reflect the warmer weather and the native flora I've grown up with.
This year I am taking the boys down south to Busselton where we will stay in a holiday house. I'm not too sure what the dinnerware options will be however I will set myself the challenge to come up with a simple yet amazing centrepiece on the fly!
