Our Family Christmas…

Some of my fondest memories are of Christmas. My great aunt with a gardenia tucked behind her ear, Uncle Plonko doing his signature ‘bomb’ into the pool after lunch and my mum spending ages decorating the Christmas table the night before. Every year she did something different and every year it looked incredible.

So, When Freedom approached  me to style a Christmas table I knew I wanted to do it with mum. We’ve got a really similar sense of style…plus she’s my best buddy so it’s the perfect excuse to hang out and create something beautiful together!

 

Five Tips for Decorating Your Christmas Table

  1. Don’t feel like you’ve got to stick to a palette of red and green. We chose a fresh combination of blue, yellow and white as it felt relaxed and summery – just like our family Christmases!
  2. Flowers can sometimes wilt in the heat of an Australian Christmas so we created a center piece from the branches of a 100-year old pear tree at mum and dad’s farm. The yellow lichen tied in perfectly with our palette (without feeling too matchy matchy). We also added some of Freedom’s translucent ‘Quintessential’ christmas decorations that catch the sun and shimmer.
  3. Personalised place settings are guaranteed to make everyone around your table feel welcome.  Mum and I kept things simple and wrapped leather thonging loosely around each serviette and slipped in a hand written name card. To finish it off, we added a single yellow button flower
  4. There’s not much point buying serving ware and platters that look so ‘Christmassy’ you can only use them on one day a year. Stick to neutral white or the timeless appeal of timber that you can use all year round and let your centerpiece and place settings make your table feel festive.
  5. Get creative and look for ways you can decorate with things you already have about your home. For our ice bucket we used a planter while the basket for our Christmas tree normally has the kids toys in it!
