The best Christmas Tablescapes

Mistletoe Kiss by Summerill & Bishop

The Chicest Christmas Tablescape Collections 2023Pin

For the chicest Christmas tablescape around, look no further than Summerill & Bishop. The cult homeware brand is known for its show-stopping tablecloths, which has seen them collaborate with the likes of Claridge’s and London-based fashion label Shrimps. For the festive season they’ve launched a new table linen collection, entitled Mistletoe Kiss. Tablecloths and napkins are adorned with garlands of the evergreen branches and white berries, with the design created to encourage kissing. Simply pinch the napkin together on the central bow and hold it above your head during dinner to be rewarded with a festive peck.

Dior Maison Cruise 24

The Chicest Christmas Tablescape Collections 2023Pin

Nothing elevates a dining table quite like a Dior tablescape. The latest Dior Maison collection might just be their most enchanting yet, echoing the spirit of the Dior cruise 2024 line dreamed up by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Platters and plates are adorned with delicate butterflies in a nod to the Butterfly Around the World motif conceived by Italian artist Pietro Ruffo, and are combined with a reinterpretation of the French house’s iconic toile de Jouy design. Alongside this you’ll find a limited-edition vase and decorative box, created in collaboration with the Manufacture des Émaux de Longwy, which was founded in 1798.
