What are the traditional colours you think of for Christmas decorations? Red, green, gold, and white perhaps? These do all make lovely combinations for a very striking and bold table setting, but a more muted setting can also work and be just as festive.

Blue isn't used very often as a Christmas colour in its paler varieties, but team it with a muted red, along with traditional white, and it can really work.

Here are some ideas for how you could lay a table in different way. It's still Christmassy, but a little bit unusual.

It's also an idea for a Christmas gift, coming downstairs on Christmas Day to fresh linen napkins, and a pretty place setting, is quite a lovely idea.

You can mix and match bargain items with more expensive ones, and it doesn't need to cost too much money. If you're happy to wait until the last minute, many Christmas items like plates, tablecloths, and crackers will be reduced already a couple of days before Christmas.

And if your budget doesn't stretch to a whole new dinner service, then many shops do really nice paper varieties.

You can supplement a normal, white set of plates with some prettily patterned paper side plates or napkins. Or you could extend the theme into smaller gift items, like oven gloves or a tea towel.

If you would like to carry the muted theme through to the Christmas tree but only have bright decorations, there is a very simple solution: fake snow spray! A quick dust of that will ensure that the tree complements your colour scheme perfectly.
