This week we focus on how to set the perfect Tartan Christmas Table. Everyone looks forward to that all important Christmas Dinner, what better way to make it even more special this year than with the a touch of Tartan? Creating a table with the wow factor can set the tone for the entire Christmas dinner. We think the best place to start is by picking a colour theme, for a traditional festive colour why not go for Red? Once your colour theme has been finalised its time to start thinking about table cloths and table runners. A tablecloth is a great way to flood the table with colour and pattern, whether you decide to start with a plain colour and add other tartan details or have tartan as the basis of your theme and then pick out plain accessories. Our tartan tablecloths are available in variety of sizes and tartans with six tartans in stock and the option to have a custom table cloth in your own family tartan. Stewart Royal is always the most popular predominately red tartan which also incorporates festive green yellow and white. Our storeroom is piled high with Stewart Royal tablecloths napkins and runners because of course just after Christmas comes Hogmanay then it's Burns Night. Plenty of opportunities to use your new tablecloth! If you prefer a plain tablecloth or already have one in your drawer a great way to then add in tartan detail across the table is with a table runner. The red tartan looks fab over a plain white tablecloth! Napkins are something often forgotten but all of these small details are vital in creating the wow factor and even if you have plain coloured napkins you can tie them with a tartan ribbon to add a bit of festive cheer. We do a range of tartans in polyester and also over 500 Scottish tartans in the wool tartan ribbon range. Tie it all and include the same ribbon into table decorations where you can really start to make the table your own from a stunning centre piece to candles, name places and winter flowers there are many routes you can take. Create some decorations of your own is such a simple but personal touch. Another very important factor is fun, making the table an enjoyable place for your guests to relax. Christmas crackers, games and good music are all a great way to make sure the party is flowing while you focus on getting the courses prepared. Enjoy!
