There is nothing quite like the squeeze of
trying to accommodate 14 around a table that usually seats 6...if this is a familiar predicament, consider investing in an extendable table with leaves - it means that for the majority of the year it is a convenient size for everyday life and can be transformed for special occasions.
If space is tight in the dining room, opt for benches - they can tuck underneath when not in use and accommodate more bodies than chairs! Remember to order extra chairs though if you have an extendable table.
The set Christmas table is surely one of the biggest delights of the festive season - but don't think you have to stick to a traditional palette of red and gold. New trends include the heavy use of greenery like eucalyptus against white or bare wood or more decadent designs like teal velvet and brass finishes.
