Here Are Your Top Tips For A Twinkling Tablescape This Christmas

Plenty of sparkle and plenty of shine

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 29th November 2019

There’s something magical about this time of year. It’s a warm feeling and it’s not just the Aussie weather. It’s a time of celebration between family and friends chatting around a table and tucking into a delicious seasonal spread. Bring the magic to your Christmas tablescape with some simple Australian-inspired pieces you can pick up from Skygate Home & Life. Plus, a little helping hand from @addicted_to_bargains expert, Samantha Tolley.

LET THE FOOD DO THE TALKING

Let’s be honest, Christmas isn’t the time for light, five-minute meals. It’s the time to dine! Whatever your spread, make sure your set up doesn’t detract from the festive feast by keeping your table styling simple with a neutral colour palette. Throw down with a DecoRug woollen floor rug under a Nick Scali dining table to set the scene. There’s something to be said about seating your guests and what better way to do so than with a set of Pillow Talk placemats, a platter from Early Settler and some traditional wooden servers. The focal point of your table, like these gorgeous native blooms from Pillow Talk, will sit pretty in a chic vase in various hues from Oz Design.

A TOUCH OF GOLD

In a nod to the traditional tones of the festive season, make sure you add just a touch (or a lot) of sparkle! Go for gold and impress your guests with subtle twinkles of shine in your dining table styling. Light up the main event with some warm and inviting pendant lights from Lighting Illusions and keep your adornments natural with a trip to TK Maxx for gold table leaf décor. Put the fun back in functional with some sweet tealights and a gold serving tray from Early Settler, or go one step further and seat your guests on gold thrones aka the gorgeous dining chairs from Oz Design. And, of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a tree! The twinkling glitter tree ornaments from TK Maxx will add real ‘wow’ factor to your table and have your guests talking all season long.

All of this and more can be found at Skygate Home & Life, Brisbane Airport, 30 The Circuit, next to DFO.
