Christmas gathering | Table ware

by | Dec 8, 2014

The first memory I have of Christmas and its magic was when my dear mother took us to Melbourne. We walked the streets hand in hand and I was totally overwhelmed and caught up in the spirit. The city of Melbourne had transformed into a beautiful story book. The city streets had been adorned with wreaths and ribbons and you could almost hear the giant bells ring. I swear I could feel the chill of snow. All that was needed was a reindeer.

I adore Christmas! I love the warm feeling it evokes. I love the giggles and squeals of delight from our children. I love the belly laughs and the wrinkled eyes that accompany them.

I get so inspired by what Christmas could look like, and I delight in planning it out. I love the natural palette of nature and tend to focus on the simple beauty, the shapes and the textures. I want my home and my table to be in harmony with the noise this period brings, and not fight for attention. I want that relaxed feeling that encourages laughs and conversation, the kind that creates memories that live on.

So when it comes to decorating our christmas table, I have my eye on simple shapes, tactile pieces and a few pieces of luxe this year…
