Spruce up your Christmas table at Victoria Centre Article

Christmas is just around the corner and you can’t turn the TV on without seeing a craft or interiors expert telling you how to dress your festive table to impress your guests. Making it look ever-so-easy they tell you how it takes no time at all to create a scene that looks like it should be in a luxury homes magazine!

Fear not though, we are here to help. Here is our definitive list on where to shop to start your Christmas dinner table off with a bang - ready for your Brussels sprouts and sumptuous roast.

Clink clink with John Lewis

It’s always nice to treat everyone to a nice festive tipple, whether they love creamy Baileys, fizzing champagne or a grown-up soft drink, and you’ll definitely need some sparkling glasses or Christmas cups to serve them in.

A perfect stop for glassware is John Lewis where you’ll find elegant stemless red wine glasses, £26 for a set of four. We also absolutely love this mountain trees pattern metallic gin glass, at £10 which is the ideal treat for any glamorous host. See more stunning glasses here.

Catering for a crowd with Sostrene Grene

If you have a big family, visiting friends or just neighbours unexpectedly popping in this Christmas, you’ll need something quick and simple to serve your drinks in.

Sostrene Grene has some gorgeous festive paper cups, only £1.36 for a pack of six and perfect for any party when you want to avoid too much washing up.

Alongside this are festive paper plates with cute Santa pics for £1.36 for a set of six, ideal for a buffet tea and snacks. The Danish store also has this elegant porcelain mug, a winner for hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies.

Click, collect and go crackers with House of Fraser

House of Fraser has a click and collect deal which gives you £5 with a £100 spend - great if you are stocking up on perfumes and disco party wear. We highly recommend putting that £5 towards these fabulous designer crackers ranging from £5 to £18. With 50% off it would be rude not to.

You can also pick up these striking and unique Hotel Beaten Metal Charger Copper plates to really give everyone something to talk about - discounted from £18 to £13 each. You’ve been warned though, they may be too good to serve your dinner from.

Crackling flames from Boots and Yankee Candle

To add warmth and a seasonal glow to your tables, there are some gorgeous Christmas themed candles at Yankee Candle. At £19.99 each (or two for £36) they come with festive names such as Christmas Magic, Snow in Love, Christmas Eve, Red Apple Wreath and Christmas Cookie.

If you really want to add the wow factor, Boots has these wicked Woodwick candles. Not only do they smell divine, with scents ranging from Fireside to Cinnamon Chai, they also feature natural wooden wicks that create the distinctive soothing sound of a crackling fire for a wonderful cosy night at home.
