Christmas table setting Workshop | The Ned London

Last week, on Sunday 17th of December,  just a week away from Christmas I hosted my last Christmas workshop of the year. Just in time to help you dress the perfect Christmas table and create an unforgettable dinner party for your guests!

In the heart of the City of London, at the Ned member club, we offered a special Christmas table setting Workshop in collaboration with Heaps + Stacks.

Set in the former Midland Bank building, The Ned is one of the most exquisite five-star hotel in London. We were so excited to use their cosy luxurious kennel room for this private event.
Here is a sneak peek of our afternoon:

To help you plan a great looking table and give you some ideas, I composed three different themed dining layouts to inspire you.

Remember to select your dining wear with your Christmas food menu in mind, so you can create beautiful contrast for a visually pleasing table look.

You can also reuse most of your ordinary table wear and just add golden cutlery or joyful napkins.

I love using foliage and greenery on the table, as it will perfume your room and add a natural touch to your decoration. Think about small vases, pines cones and small candles to create a warm interesting background.

Of course, you need to make your table personal, which is the most important step, as your guests will feel so special with their own name tags and most likely they will want to leave with it to remember this night forever.

You can find more of my table settings here.

I love to use clay as it is a very diverse medium for name tags. Using cookie cutter and stamps you can personalise your table very easily.

After a quick demonstration on how to create name tag out of clay, my guests had a go at creating their own ornaments. This activity is so therapeutic and an excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Air dry clay is very easy to use, it will take less than a day to dry to a complete crisp white. You can use golden ink on your stamps for some extra glitter!

My tip is that you smooth any imperfection with a bit of water. I highly recommend this activity with your friends, family and kids.
