A Feast for the Eyes: Honouring the Most Memorable Meal of the Season

Winter is truly a magical time of year up north. Vibrant green coniferous trees are soon peppered – and sometimes blanketed – in bright white snow, providing much needed contrast for the many dark hours ahead. Although the days darken early, there’s also a bright light ahead: The Holidays.

The Holidays are sure to lift spirits, as well as fill the calendar with family get togethers, cocktail parties with friends and work celebrations. For many, the highlight of their holidays is Christmas Dinner. This year, the table setting can shine just as much as the food served!

When considering the table setting, think about bringing those rich winter colours inside, put your own twist on the trends and challenge yourself to do something a little different. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Choose a principal colour, like plum or maroon. Colours like plum and maroon are rich in depth and speak to the time of year. Bold colours allow for simplistic and sophisticated accessories. Play with plain white dishes to give the table a crisp, refreshing feel, and look for gold trim for an elegant touch. Brass napkin brass rings will give this look a rustic feel.

Display buffalo check to its full potential. There are so many fun and inventive ways to use this perfectly northern pattern for a Country Christmas look. Play with different options, like cloth napkins, trays and dishes, and pair with the natural beauty of the outdoors. White candles or candlesticks would make a great addition, as well as some greenery. Using black rod iron accessories will help to deepen that traditional look and feel.

Experiment with gold and copper. This is a trend that’s becoming more and more popular. Take a modern approach to your festive table by pulling out pale grey pieces. Include warm white tableware to depict the beautiful white snow outside, and find fun and inventive ways to use gold and copper. This copper trim tray or an antler centrepiece embellished with gold are sure to spark conversation. This look can be kept elegant and simple, or for a more fun and challenging approach, use textured pieces like fringe napkins.

Only a few more days until the Holiday celebrations begin, so start thinking about what ingredients will make your table sing for the holidays, and which colours and prints will best highlight the delicious food ahead. Putting a little bit of extra effort into the table setting will deepen what the dinner table is emblematic of: family gathering, connecting and being thankful.
