There are many twists of Christmas charm that work well for a winter wedding, and I particularly like these ideas for traditional Georgian Christmas wedding table styling. With the beautiful backdrop of the magnificent dining room at Pentillie Castle, these styling ideas feature an abundance of wintery green foliage, including holly, ivy, conifer and of course Christmas tree. With the plentiful foliage table runner, the pops of colour from the red berries, dried orange slices and pomegranate work a treat. Giving a nod to the traditional Georgian Christmas theme, fruits used in the styling complement the food displayed.
If you’re looking for Christmas wedding place setting ideas then you will love the cute holly table mats. They sit under gold chargers with white china plates and a super cute conifer wreath placed on the napkin; so Christmassy and yet so simple.

Holly, Gold and Foliage
“It was a delight to dress the dining room at Pentillie Castle, a grade II listed country house in Cornwall. The mahogany table worked perfectly as a foundation for our traditional Georgian Christmas styling.
“We used holly printed placemats, gold charger plates, gold rimmed dinner plates, ornate gold cutlery and cut glass wine goblets to add a luxurious and festive feel. Mini wreaths sat pretty on the plates, with name place cards handwritten in gold pen by a local calligrapher.
“Seasonal foliage was the centrepiece, and included berried ivy, conifer, pine, berried eucalyptus, orange winter berries and slices of dried oranges with large fresh pomegranates. Gold candlesticks with oatmeal coloured candles entwined through the garland added warmth and elegance.
“Sweet treats in vintage glass dishes adorned the table and embraced the simple decadence of the tablescape. Rich mini bundt cakes topped with cranberries echoed the wreaths and traditional berries and greenery of this time of year. A hearty mountain of French macarons were each filled with a smooth raspberry and white chocolate ganache, with an intense hit of a raspberry reduction hidden in the centre to delight and surprise.”
