Xmas and the New Year are preceded by a variety of lunches and dinners dedicated to exchanging the Season’s greetings. Decorations and festive table settings have a great role in creating the right type of magic, typical of the last month of the year.

So, how should you decorate your festive table? Let’s take a look at some tips to make the precious moments you spend with the people you love even more special.

How to decorate your Xmas table

Xmas is a special time to gather the whole family around the table, even those members who live far away and you don’t get to see during the rest of the year. A great idea is to make some placeholders that your guests can take home with them at the end of the meal as a keepsake for the day.

We like the idea of using decorations that guests can take back home with them and hang on their own Xmas tree, maybe collecting them from year to year.

A refined touch is afforded by matching napkins with the table runner, to which you can add your favourite Xmas decorations that may include candles of various sizes and heights that will definitely create a warm atmosphere.

This warmth will be felt to an even greater degree if the room you prepare your festive table in benefits from a stove fire. If you are looking for a stove for your home check out all the Palazzetti models: they are designed to meet all your requirements!

How to decorate your New Year’s Eve table

While Xmas is undoubtedly a family-oriented celebration, New Year’s Eve is a time to have fun with friends.

Why not prepare your table using decorations that are both elegant and fun?  Everyone knows that New Year’s Eve brings a touch of madness with it: to add some panache to the evening, why not use masks as placeholders?

Glitter, disco balls and balloons are also must-haves for New Year’s Eve parties!

A fun idea could be to choose a colour, perhaps an extravagant one like pink, and ask your guests to wear an item of clothing in that shade. Don’t be too strict though: the most important New Year’s Eve rule is that there are no rules!
