Red and white scandi-style table
Modern, cosy and relaxed, the classic motifs of Scandinavian design work so well for a Christmas table. Lay a crisp white linen cloth and overlay with a robust red runner down the centre. Decorate small glass tealight holders with plain red or gingham stick-on ribbon and splash out on some red-handled cutlery to give white crockery a Christmasy lift.
