Idea #1 Australian Summer

⦁ Make use of native plants such as eucalyptus, kangaroo paw, banksia, waratah or wattle.

You can run them along the middle of the table, decorate the backs of chairs, put them in vases or make hanging decorations.

⦁ Go for a coastal theme: use woven placemats, put sand in mason jars and decorate with shells. Use colours such as white, turquoise and green. Or,

⦁ Employ neutral colours such as taupe, white and grey for a relaxed vibe.

⦁ Or, accent your table with green and gold for a true Aussie table setting!

Idea #2 Traditional

⦁ Use fruits such as oranges, pears, pomegranates or lemons to add some colour.fruit table runner



Did you know that in Ancient Greece, they consumed pomegranates on holy days?

The Pomegranate as a symbol represents life, marriage and rebirth. It is a symbol of fertility and abundance.

For nutrition,  pomegranate juice contains higher levels of antioxidants than most other fruit juices. It also has three times more antioxidants than red wine and green tea. The antioxidants in pomegranate juice can help remove free radicals, protect cells from damage, and reduce inflammation.


⦁ Decorate the backs of the chairs. You could get mini wreaths to tie to the back, or use some pretty fabric to tie bows or to drape around the chairs.

⦁ Get a rustic, wintery feel with some wooden touches. Use a wood slate as a placemat, run pine cones down the middle of the table or put branches in a vase for a centrepiece and hang decorations off of them.

⦁ Table scatters. Little things can have a big impact – using a craft hole punch cut out stars from coloured paper and scatter them around the table red

⦁ Layer the different components. Start with a table cloth, add a table runner and placemats, then add decorations on top. Go bold with your table cloth, such as plaid, or keep it simple to add the sparkle on top. Think about using a scarf for a table runner, or tablecloths as placemats.

⦁ Don’t forget about the scents! If you want to emulate a traditional winter Christmas, use cinnamon or gingerbread, but if you want something more contemporary, go for citrus or coconut.

⦁ Fill mason jars with colourful things such as cherries, cranberries, succulents, walnuts or baubles.

Personalise each person’s seat

⦁ Make edible name-card holders. Using a fruit such as an orange or a pear, pin a little name-card to it.

⦁ Chalkboard placemats. Spray paper with chalkboard, paint and write the names of your guests above the plates with white craft pen. Decorate as much as you want!chalkboard table setting

⦁ Set a small gift for each person on their plate.
