Get ready to sprinkle some magic on your Christmas celebrations with tablescapes that are sure to get your guests talking. Victoria from Signature Event Hire, your go-to company for all things floral, styling and weddings in South Wales, is here to dish out some top tips for turning your festive gatherings into unforgettable experiences with stunning Christmas tablescaping.
With Netflix over nights out gaining popularity, tablescaping is stealing the spotlight as the ultimate way to turn your dining space into a jaw-dropping setting for entertaining guests. Forget just eating; we’re talking about transforming your meal into a magical experience this Christmas. It’s your chance to truly show off your flair and make those Christmas get-togethers even more memorable.
You can start your table transformation by throwing in those classic Christmas hues – deep reds, lush greens and hints of gold to channel that cosy vibe. Creating different textures is the aim of the game. Grab some local materials for table runners or napkins, thinking about the colours you use, and remember the different shades and complementary tones used the better. If you’re after a budget-friendly twist, grab your coat and head outside to grab some branches, greenery such as conifer, pine cones, berries, and pick up some affordable candles. Place them into a cool container (think wood or metal), or create a loose design weaving down the middle of your table, and voila – rustic elegance on a budget.
Now, let’s move to place settings. Think about decking your table with custom porcelain plates with gold accents – it’s like art you can eat off! Get personal with place cards or channel your inner Bridgerton with elegant crystal glassware to toast with, maybe pairing with Gold cutlery? Fancy!. Alternatively, for an option that won’t break the bank, you can hunt down some mix-and-match vintage china from a local charity shop. You may even find some last-minute Christmas gifts whilst on your travels! Have a go at making your place cards yourself with recycled materials to give them that homely touch – also a great way to involve the little ones!
If you’re looking for a simpler option, taking the stress away, try our ‘Signature at Home’ this Christmas. A dry hire service that couldn’t be easier.

Candles, candles and more candles are always the best way to create that luxe, homely aesthetic. Spread the magic with candles or lanterns and create your own winter wonderland. Again, think coloured taper candles to compliment your table, or using different candle holders to create that all important texture! Why not have a go at stringing some fairy lights around the ceiling, for that eating under the stars look, or take the easier route and weave them through a wreath centrepiece for that subtle, Insta-worthy glow.
