It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Danetti HQ, but are you all set for the big day? We’ve chosen our top 5 dining table and chair sets that will be ideal this Christmas. And the best bit… order before 10am time on the 17th December* and you can have your new dining set before you can say “ding dong merrily on high”! *if the items are in stock.
Whether you’re having a big family get-together, a quiet one with your loved ones or friends over for festive drinks, we’ve got the best dining sets for you this Christmas and our top tips to help your Christmas run smoothly. And don’t worry, there’s still time to get your order in before the big guy arrives on the 25th.
The Large Family Gathering
If you’ve got a large family over for Christmas, you’ll want everyone to be comfortable around the table, but you also need to have a large enough table to accommodate everyone. This is why the Fern Grey Gloss and Ida Extending Dining Set is perfect. The double extending table can seat four to ten people, so it’s great for everyday living and entertaining.
Top tip: Don’t be afraid to use place names. It may seem a little formal, but it means you have full control of where everyone sits, ensuring everyone’s happy. Put yourself somewhere near the door so you have easy access to the kitchen. Place names don’t have to be fussy, a simple gift tag on the napkin will look lovely, but if you have the time why not go all out, it is Christmas after all!
White Christmas Luxe
White, silver and ice blue tones are perfect for a stylish yet festive look to your home. Carry the colour palette of your ice white Christmas tree through to the table décor by clustering luxe baubles on a silver tray or in a hurricane jar, alternatively try spraying pinecones silver and dotting amongst a garland runner. The Bay Velvet Chairs and Mellow Dining Benches in petrol grey would be perfect for this look. Style with the Mia 6 Seater White Ceramic Dining Table to complete your luxurious white Christmas look, or the Tiva Glass and Chrome Table, like @our_montreux_home did:
@thelittleterracehouse combined the Zen white gloss table with Loop benches for her cosy, white Christmas look. For a similar style check out the Zen White Gloss and Dover Bench Set for a crisp white and grey look.
Top tip: Lay the table the day before. Lets face it, Christmas morning is busy enough, the bucks fizz isn’t going to drink itself now is it? Laying the table on Christmas eve is just one less job to do on Christmas morning.
For a contemporary festive feel add bold colours to your space with pompoms, baubles or colourful candles. Our Arc and Riva 4 Seater Glass and White Gloss Dining Set is the perfect choice for adding a bit of fun and colour to your home this festive period. The Riva chairs are available in a range of bright colours from lime green and ink blue to fuchsia pink and grape purple. The glass top Arc table allows light to pass through, so you can keep the look light and bright. Alternatively, style with moody lighting and deep, rich coloured table settings for a decadent look.
Top tip: If you’re going for a colourful Christmas, be bold, really go for it! Don’t shy away, this is a time when more is more.
Christmas Games Table
The Curva Matt Grey Extending and Petra Dining Set is the perfect setting for gathering friends for leisurely dinners and a board game; who doesn’t love a board game at Christmas? A round or oval table is ideal for entertaining as there’s a common centre that everyone has access to and the Curva table seats up to six when extended. The Petra chairs are so comfy with their premium faux leather upholstery and thick padded seating - perfect for that never-ending game of Monopoly.
Top tip: Create a zoned drinks area where people can help themselves. Not only will it make guests feel relaxed yet involved, it’ll leave you free to get on with other things. Having a dedicated drinks space also leaves more room on the table, this works well for dinner and evening games time.
Small Space Christmas Dining
If you’re having a small and intimate Christmas this year, check out the Valencia Clear Glass and Walnut and Form Blush Velvet 4 Seater Dining Set. A round table is such a convivial way of dining and the glass table top gives the space an open feel. The brushed brass detailing on the tables and chairs will coordinate beautifully with your gold Christmas decorations. And if an unexpected guest turns up, the matching Plaza Blush Pink Velvet Stool will make a handy extra seat.
Top tip: - If you’re concerned about space on the table for decorations once the bowls of cranberry sauce and sprouts are laid out, think about hanging your décor over the table. Different heights should always be considered when decorating the table, so take it to new levels and hang your décor instead. If you have an over-the-table light already, try weaving some festive foliage around the lights, alternatively arrange large, statement baubles over the table, or decorate your pendant lights with subtle yet cute bows and miniature wreaths. But remember, don’t light candles on the table if you have hanging decorations.
