With only weeks left now to find the perfect Christmas gifts, time is running out but what about that all important Christmas party?
If you are planning a home cooked dinner and you are inviting the whole family round, have you remembered the dining table and how much fuss is created when you try to arrange the correct places.
You want to make the right impression so take some time and think about what you will need, table linen, seat covers or pads, napkins and party hats.
Well we cannot help you with the crackers (but this fun idea might be your solution) or the party hats but we can show you some great ideas for dressing your table for the perfect Christmas Dinner.
Festive table cloths
We have the traditional Ivy leaf crisp white table linen and napkins for those of you that want to make a statement, this superior quality tableware is manufactured especially with dinner parties in mind.
The cloths and napkins wash with ease and the fabric is ideal for removing any stain’s that may happen. Some table linen can be ruined if you spill drinks or gravy on them so always try to get a damask fabric to give you a good chance at saving the tablecloth as accidents do happen.
If you want a different theme and you want to add some colour into the party we also have some themed tableware such as the Rooster and country style tablecloths in stock.
The Check and floral designs are pure classics and can be used all year round not just at Christmas and they also come in cotton cloths and outdoor and indoor washable PVC versions which are virtually indestructible.
Dressing up your seating
Seats pads and chair cushions are also very popular at this time of year, not only do they protect your expensive dining room chairs they can also provide comfort from wooden chairs as some are not that comfy for spending long periods of time on while you chat, drink and eat away.
Our seats pads are ideal for all occasions, they have convenient tie backs on them to secure them to your seat and the generous filling gives you all the padding you need.
You can also opt for the bolster pads which are great for children and the elderly where a greater degree of softness and comfort is required.
Take a look at our range of seat pads for inspiration!
Table linen and cotton bedding can make some great gift ideas if you are not sure what to buy your friends and family, there is nothing finer than clean crisp sheets to slip into.
If you are still undecided pure white sheets go with everything and you cannot go wrong with cotton. If you still need to buy the other half something special this is definitely the way to go as the usual chocolates and alcoholic drink is well played out and can sometimes seem like no effort has been put into your choice.
The all important thing about a Christmas party is to have some fun, make a real effort to enjoy the festive break and your guests will have a great time and thank you for it.
