Here at Portmeirion Group we celebrate those special moments when family and friends gather around the table to share their stories and enjoy each other’s company. That means that we especially love Christmas! It’s the pinnacle moment in the year when our tableware really comes to life so we know just how important it is to have that fabulously decorated table. And, we can help you make a wonderful impact this year.
We’ve created a number of different looks this year and will take you through each one, step by step. Here’s the first one.
The Winter’s Scene Look (Modern Classic)
Our Spode Winter’s Scene collection is perfect for this theme and, as it can be used all year round, it’s a great investment.
The secret to achieving this lovely, warm festive feeling, is to use fruit and greenery as your centrepiece. We’ve used fir tree branches, pine cones, oranges and apples to create an affordable centrepiece inspired by nature.
To recreate this look, follow these simple steps:
1. Place fir tree branches in the centre of your table. These can be found in the garden or at your local florist.
2. Add in some pine cones. These can be dipped in glitter or sprayed with gold/silver paint for an extra bit of sparkle! Then place some glossy red apples (we shined ours to create extra glossiness!) alongside oranges. The vibrant hue of the oranges will add a traditional touch to the table without looking old fashioned.
3. Add candles to set the scene. We recommend Wax Lyrical’s Snow Forest candles. The delicate woody scent perfectly complements this nature inspired look!
