London Inspired Christmas Table {DIY}

I received a message from a very dear friend living in London…It read along the lines of “Sam please help me with some Christmas table Inspiration {or rather Instructions}”.

With the theme "London" in mind {having never been there} however It seams like a town rich in history and literature mixed with an eclectic modern vibe I "shopped the home" for a few items to help me create two London looks:

Basic table setup
Linen tablecloth (Ikea)
Table Runner (Ikea)
Plate chargers (I used black)
White dinner plates
Wine glasses

Modern British Table – Option 1
Paper doily (Dollar store) used as coasters
White Christmas tree (dollar store)
White pot (Ikea) to put dollar store Christmas tree into
Mirror ball Tree ornament - These make great take home gifts for your guests (A memory of the occasion)
Black and white twine to tie around napkin (like a gift)




Vintage London Table – Option 2
1 x vintage book
vintage napkins (I got a set of 8 vintage napkins from the thrift store 50c each)
Various vintage candle holders, brass, glass, white
Clay tag Tree ornaments - These make great take home gifts for your guests (A memory of the occasion)
Scrap of paper for place cards





Vintage books are hilarious and rather inexpensive, I bought this one for $1 from an antique shop

The December 2011 Issue of Real living Magazine also has some great table setting inspiration






I am seriously lusting over that gold cutlery set....

Have a gorgeous London Christmas Al!
