Its beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here at Woods Furniture...

Twinkling trees and frosted greenery deck the windows, creating a wintery backdrop for a selection of reindeer that even Father Christmas would be impressed with! The festive scent of mulled wine and gently warming mince pies greets you as you step in from the cold, and the warm glow of our nutmeg candles fills the air with anticipation and joy. Its difficult not to be inspired as you meander around the store, and our beautifully laden tables make it simple to see how you can recreate that extra special Christmas at home.

Your dining table never works harder than it does throughout the holidays. Festive dinner parties with friends, the traditional Christmas roast with family or toasting in the new year, sat around the table with your nearest and dearest. It's where food is shared, laughter is had and where all the best memories are made.

Hosting Christmas yourself this year? Never fear. Here are four ways to impress your guests and create a memorable festive table...


 
Walking in a winter wonderland...

 

Bring some Nordic charm to your table with a crisp, cool centrepiece of white and silver. Intermingle intricate baubles and icy snowflakes into greenery to create a fresh Scandinavian feel. Weave in fairy lights for sparkle and add shining glassware. Add warmth with the soft glow of a trio of candles and layer our luxurious sheepskins over dining chairs and benches to add sumptuous texture and a contempory yet cosy feel.

 

The holly and the ivy...

 


If the nostalgia of red, green and gold fills you with the Christmas spirit, then make the most of our beautiful artificial springs of holly, ivy and mistletoe. Use garlands of green; studded with red jewel-like berries to invoke the tradional colours of the season. Pillar candles and our silver and gold lanterns make for a cosy feel and our lovely red and white hanging decorations can be dotted in amongst the foliage.

 

Baby its cold outside...

 


Prefer a more neutral palate? Invite nature into your theme with a beautiful bough and greenery running down your table. Pinecones and berries, all lightly frosted with a sprinkling of glitter creates the feel of a winter woodland. Perch tiny sweet robins onto twigs at different heights to add interest and layer our embellished white crockery with our linen napkins to add natural textures. Add the personal touch with unique place settings. Write your guests names onto tiny chalkboards, or brown luggage tags tied in a bow around each napkin.

 

All I want for Christmas...

 


Create a luxe look with a black, white and gold scheme. An ornate candelabra does the talking and sophisticated black tapered candles add drama and create atmosphere. For a regal touch, our snowy peacocks add a unique talking point and make a wonderful contemporary alternative to tradional decorations. A sprinkling of white stars and sparkle, and this table is set ready for a cosy celebration on a dark and frosty night.

There’s so much to see at our High East Street and Brewery Square stores! From twinkling glassware, gleaming crockery and table linens to warm candles, artificial greenery, accessories and decorations - there's everything you could possibly need to make your Christmas table truly sparkle this year!
