Selecting Your Festive Placemats

Festive placemats for the Christmas table

Favourite festive period for millions

Christmas is the favourite holiday period for millions of people all over the world. This is the time when we come together, celebrate, and spend quality time with our loved ones. This day is just around the corner, and if you are like many, you’re probably already envisioning how this day is going to be. In this article, we’re going to help you with choosing the festive placemats design for your Christmas dinner table.

Selecting the right material for your festive placemats

The first thing that you need to do when choosing the festive placemats is to find the right material, for this we find the rigid, cork backed type is best. Christmas is the time when we are all gathered together with our family and let’s face it, no one actually pays attention to how careful they are at the dining table. Things can be spilled and you definitely don’t want your favourite tablecloth or even worse your precious furniture, to be ruined. Make sure that the placemat is stain resistant and waterproof and that you can easily wipe them clean once the dinner is over.

Opt for an interesting design

When it comes to the design you need to consider if this dinner is going to be something casual that you just sit down with your family, if it’s going to be a high-end dinner, or if you are looking for placemats to set the kids’ table. Depending to a certain extent on the type of decoration you plan on having, you can choose a set of the Wrendale Christmas placemats.

There are so many options and you can start with something minimalistic that contains primarily a white background, for example the Plymouth Penguin Parade placemats that feature the type of festive design that can also be used all year round.

On the other hand, you can opt for the traditional red, white and green and you can choose a placemat that is busy, festive, and that is going to scream Christmas – such as the Spode Christmas Tree tablemats. The ultimate choice is up to you and you need to check different options out before making the final decision.

Choose place mats that reflect your style

When you start looking at placemats you will see that there are so many different types and designs. Starting from the shape, to the colours, and even the type of material are going to be different everywhere. There are no exact rules that you need to follow - it is left up to you how you want to represent your personal style and your festive spirit on this special day. When choosing the right shape, design, and colours you should definitely consider getting something that is going to match the whole look of not just the dining table but also the dining-room. You can always go with the traditional Christmas colours, but you can also choose something a bit different and unique that is going to add your own touch to the whole festive atmosphere.

Choosing the right set of festive placemats for your Christmas dinner can certainly be a tricky task. The best thing you can do if you want to save yourself a lot of time and trouble is to first choose the tablecloth, and all the other decorations. This allows you to decide what you want to achieve when you add the placemats as the final part of your table design - whether to select a formal Christmas design or a fun set of Christmas placemats.
