It may sound simple but give your table a quick polish; youve invested in a beautiful wood product so show it off at its best
Make sure everyone can sit comfortably and get in and out easily with plenty of space around the table.
Protect it ......... Make sure your table stays looking in tip top condition by protecting the wood with stylish coasters and placemats. Add these to your Christmas list if you dont have enough
Decorate it ..... choose a theme for your table and get creative Whether you choose cool and contemporary or go for a traditional look use your imagination. You could tie in your Christmas table with the decor of the room or use your Christmas tree for inspiration and tie in with that.
