The focal point of everyone's day is Christmas lunch, so the table setting is a key look. We're not suggesting that you re-decorate your dining room to achieve the white Christmas look, but you can dress it up in white for the big day. A crisp white table cloth, white plates and napkins with glam but neutral silver accessories will keep the look clean, fresh and festive. The frosted tree completes the winter wonderland picture.
