Christmas is nearly upon us and the yards are bustling with boats getting ready for the crossing over to the Caribbean, which means it’s time to trade in Sangria and Mediterranean glitz for some rum punch and Santa themed swimwear.
Whether it's a busy Christmas charter season you have coming up, the boss and family, or simply a Christmas with your crew, there are plenty of ways to spruce up your Christmas table and bring some festive cheer to your linens.
Here are three ways to carry your table settings into Christmas
Rich Christmas Colours
I don't know about you, but one of my favorite parts about Christmas is the transition to the rich Christmas colours, bright festive imagery and just a sprinkling of glitter that gives a Christmas theme that magic.
Nothing says Christmas like a table full of gorgeous, rich colorful decorations juxtaposed by beautiful linens and place settings
An off the peg range available from Jacquard Francais or for a more personalized style Franchini Mare have a beautiful range of embroidered napkins and table linen with Christmas motifs, both are fun and traditional; from snowmen, to holly and Christmas trees.
Festive themes and patterns
Another great way to bring eclectic beauty to your Christmas table is by mixing different patterns. Whether it's Christmas themed napkins like these pictured with a traditional Christmas theme embroidery, the combinations can add interest and depth to your table.
Glitter and gold
Christmas may be about rich colours and warmth but when you’re on charter in the Caribbean, it may suit the setting to highlight your linen with gold and white with a glitter accent, so give that snowy magical feel. Your table can evoke this feeling just by incorporating a spot of glitz through the fabrics, and textures such as beading or sequins, as well as using the colours suggested above.
Adding complimentary linen napkins with a gold trim will bring effortless sparkle to a festive table.
