4 ideas on how to style a stunning and elegant Christmas table
Creating a beautifully styled Christmas table is a wonderful way to enhance the festive atmosphere and make your holiday celebrations even more special. Whether you're hosting a large family gathering or an intimate dinner, attention to detail in your table decor can enhance the overall holiday experience.
For 4 weeks in December, we will provide you with 4 different ideas on how to style a stunning and elegant Christmas table setting with the Legio Nova Series. Each styling will present a distinct theme that integrates both style and personality, that you can use as inspiration for creating your own Christmas table setting.
Theme 4: Classic Christmas
Here comes our last suggestion for a beautiful and elegant Christmas table setting. This theme is named ‘Classic Christmas’ reflecting a more minimalistic and simple style approach. This table setting style is more classic yet still very elegant. This fits perfectly with the Legio Nova tableware, which is also characterised by its minimalist design. Since the styling is so simple there is room for including small table lamps as a ‘cozy’ element in your table setting.
The key to a beautifully styled Christmas table is to have fun and let your creativity shine. Whether your style is classic, minimalistic or, rustic. It is all about balancing elegance with warmth and to infuse your own personality into the décor, which will make your holiday celebrations memorable for years to come.
Theme 1: Raw Christmas
The first theme of Christmas table décor is titled "Raw Christmas," reflecting a fusion of raw metals and organic design. This beautifully styled Christmas table utilizes simplicity and muted colors along with elements from nature—the warmth of wood, the Christmasy-allure of spruce, and the rustic charm of pinecones. These elements elegantly contrast with the steel cooking island and the classic Legio Nova porcelain.

Theme 2: White Christmas
Our second suggestion for a beautiful and elegant Christmas table setting is named "White Christmas," as this beautifully styled Christmas table uses the colour white to create coziness and a festive atmosphere. The white Legio Nova tableware, the white tablecloth, and the beautiful white details in the room create harmony. Together with the simple decorations, it makes the table appear beautiful, elegant, and festive at the same time.

Together with the spruce decorations and the fir cones, it makes the table appear festive and elegant and brings a feeling of ‘home’ to the table décor.
4 tips and ideas to help you achieve a stunning and inviting Christmas table setting
1. CHOOSE A THEME
Start by selecting a theme that resonates with your holiday spirit and your personal style. You could include traditional colors like red and green, create a winter wonderland with white and silver decor, or select a rustic theme with natural elements like pinecones and spruce.
2. INVEST IN TABLEWARE
Invest in high quality tableware that not only elegantly complements your chosen theme and personal style, but also easily can withstand a lifetime of everyday use including being oven and dishwasher safe.
3. SUITABLE GLASSWARE FOR THE OCCASION
If you're serving wine or champagne, it is important to ensure that you have the right glasses and select suitable glassware for the occasion. This ensures not only aesthetic compatibility but also enhances the overall dining experience.
4. USE LIGHTING AS A CENTERPIECE
Use lighting as a central element in your table decor. Let it not only serve as the focal point of the table but use lighting or candles to create a warm and cozy atmosphere that enhances the overall dining experience.
