For my Christmas look, I decided to break out and embrace brights, having thoroughly exhausted the usual Christmas tones over the years. To avoid a table that smacked of the ‘80’s, I kept the look punchy and clean by using a palette dominated by white, adding only pops of neon and touches of coppery-golds to give it that rich Christmas touch.
My flowers were simple and strong so as to not fight with the neon.
Continuing with my light-hearted theme, I added spray-painted plastic toy animals and then customised the look by spraying the legs of our white cross-back chairs. You could do this at home if you have metal or painted wood chairs, as they’re easy to change back to white or even to a different shade for a fresh look in 2018. DIY tassels with neon pom-poms were used as napkin detail to complement our gold cutlery.
Putting this look together was more of a challenge than expected but I loved it in the end and I think the photos speak for themselves.
Have fun creating this Christmas table in your own home – go beyond the norm! Why not?
