a homemade christmas - cute table setting idea

I had a little play this morning with some ideas to decorate our Christmas lunch! Homemade finishing touches at Christmas time are as sweet as my Granny's chocolate pudding. In just one short craft-ernoon you can whip up some decorations that will make your table pretty special and not cost you many dollars!

I hope you enjoy this little bit of inspiration and make your Christmas a homemade one. If you want some more DIY inspiration to keep you busy over summer make sure you check out this post - it's one of my favourites.

Read on for where I found my items!


• I wanted something natural so the calico tablecloth was perfect - and it's only $4/metre (120cm wide) at Spotlight

• I made some confetti using a hole punch and last year's old Christmas gift wrapping! It was gold with tiny white spots so it looked super cute and celebratory scattered all over the table.

• I bought a heap of mis-matched cutlery from the local op shop and tied a set together with twine. 

• The hessian placemat is super easy to make and only $4.45/metre from Bunnings.

• Fairylights give some sparkle to the table and these pretty ones were from Freedom for $29.95. 

• The scalloped white plate was a cute find at IKEA for $4.99ea (you might recognise these from my Christmas in Colour post!)

• The fabric napkin is another Spotlight find - this was only $10/metre and I loved the summery colours.

• The plate was finished with a little 'Ho Ho Ho!' message that I printed at home on brown card and secured with a little wooden peg. I went for a generic message rather than name cards as that would have been a little too formal for our Christmas lunch! Pegs were $9.95 for a pack of 30 from Typo
