Dining room for a cosy festive feast

Not that the festive season is fast approaching we look to make our home perfect for entertaining as one of our favourite thing about the holiday season, is without any doubt, to have all our beloved ones over – catching up with long-distance friends and spending quality time with the family.

The first thing that comes up in our mind when speaking about the Christmas holidays, is food, of course! Our dining room becomes the hub of the house – the place where we spend time together. For this reason having a big table to accommodate all our guests, comfortable chairs and a big feast, is very important.

So let’s look the 3 key elements to help you create a cosy dining room this Christmas.

Consider the space you have, make sure not to get a table that will overcrowd the space. Rectangular tables are a great fit for large spaces and can accommodate a wide number of guests, but if you live in a small space, you might want to consider an extendible table.

Tired of deciding who will sit at the head of the table? Opt for a round dining room table, this kind of tables allow your guests to seat together in a more casual way, giving them the opportunity to look each other in the eyes and without having to deal with nasty table legs.

Last but not least, consider the style of your house, make sure the table will fit the vibe of your place – concrete or glass table for a modern look, solid or reclaimed wood for a more rustic feeling.

Make sure to pick chairs that are comfortable enough that people would linger over good food and great conversation for hours. Select a chair that has a generous seat, a supportive back and a soft touch – try to opt for upholstered chairs for extra comfort!


Dress up the table for the festive season is one of the pleasures of hosting the Christmas dinner in your home, after all it’s one of the most memorable meals of the year! It will be delicious, so shouldn’t it be pretty, too? If you are looking for ideas for your Christmas decorations check out our previous blog: Create a Cosy Christmas in Your Home.
