Christmas Table Decor
This year was our first time hosting a family Christmas meal so I really wanted to take the time and make our home feel festive so I thought I would make a special effort with the Christmas table decorations.
When it comes to getting inspiration for Christmas decor, Instagram and Pinterest are great online tools and I follow so many people with great home decor style. Yet at times, it's often hard to find similar items you see from images on Pinterest or Instagram in shops or online.
After doing some researching, it was Marks and Spencers stylish range of Christmas decorations that caught my eye. They have lots of festive decorations in many different styles plus there are enough items to choose from that won't break the bank too. I found this lovely M&S Christmas table decoration set that included a table runner, folded napkins, after dinner mini crackers, table confetti and name places.

I decided my theme this year would be a "woodland Christmas" and decorated the table with faux glitter pine cones and white painted cinammon sticks, also from M&S. These items were originally designed to hang on Christmas trees but I added them as table decor instead which I thought worked quite well.
Cinnamon sticks and pine cones decorated the table
For each table, I added two vases of flowers (vases from Dunelm) and picked up the fresh flowers from Lidl sticking to white, pink and dark pink roses. I used plain white tablecloths to protect our wooden tables and smarten the look of the tables.

I was really pleased with the end result and everyone loved the table decorations. Now Christmas is over, I'm already thinking about the theme for next year's Christmas dinner! Share your inspiration and ideas with me on Instagram and Pinterest!
