All about:

The Christmas holidays are a special time for families, a break in the year when we take the time to get together and enjoy a moment of conviviality. Meals are characteristically an important part of this. We gather around refined dishes, and watch with good humor the joy and excitement of the children. The house is already in the mood with its lights, the Christmas tree or the crib, all the warm decorations characteristic of this season. The table is the center of attention, and as the host, you want it to be dressed in all its finery, helping to make this an exceptional occasion. You've come up with an original décor for your guests. Choose a few products from our extensive range, and mix and match them to create a personalized setting that reflects your image.

The essentials for a successful festive table

Colors, lights, everything that symbolizes winter, snow, presents and Santa Claus are all evocative of this holiday. There's no need to have them all on the table, opt instead for a few carefully selected pieces. First, there's the tablecloth. Its color determines the rest of the accessories. And don't forget to match it to your tableware. In cotton or polyester, you can choose from a range of shades to brighten up your meal: patterns with stars or silver flakes, plain gold ones. Add a red table runner to highlight your decoration. Lighting is a holiday staple. Place a few mini-lanterns in the shape of a penguin or bear, tea lights reminiscent of the Nutcracker or candle holders surrounded by branches. And LEDs offer a multitude of possibilities: a reindeer, a snowman or a luminous fir tree will light up your New Year's Eve in style. You also have a choice of wooden subjects and garlands that will easily find a place in your decor. The hardest part is deciding.

The little details that make all the difference

The magic of Christmas takes shape in a multitude of details that transform the atmosphere into something unique, specific to the day. The idea is to reflect the festive theme in as many tabletop elements as possible. Think of place cards, for example: golden pineapples, wooden fir trees or gift-wrapped packages will look great. You can also place a small felt bag decorated with red and white motifs, such as a Santa Claus or a snowflake, at each place setting. Place a gift in the bag for each guest. This attention to detail will be much appreciated. Complete with a reindeer-shaped salt and pepper shaker set. And why not create a centerpiece with a bouquet of branches from which you can hang baubles, porcelain or textiles? Choose colors in keeping with the theme, and create a contrast with the branches, which can be white, characteristic, silver or gold. Let your creativity do the talking.
