Thinking back to my childhood Christmases in Germany it was all about the beautiful tree lit with red candles, that only my Opi (grandfather) was allowed to light and the glass beads that hung from each branch. Then of course it was about the presents! And after that our festive dinner on Christmas Eve.
The opulent dinner table for 30 people was set with a crisp white table cloth and laid with my Omi's blue and white Zwiebel Muster patterned china from Meissen. I think that's why I'm so drawn to this colour in ceramics. It's so elegant, timeless.

I'm really excited to use my blue bubble plates this year and had the most fun recreating the table. 
I've gone full on blue bubbles but of course they work perfectly mixed in with other sets like Royal Copenhagen and Meissen as well as plain white china too.
I chose a dark navy linen table cloth and matching napkins to off set the vibrancy of the bubbles and decorated the table with flowers in my bud vases.

As well as using Paperdreams beautiful paper trees dotted along the centre and the beautiful twisted candles in grey and bordeaux from Paia Copenhagen

 I couldn't help myself but create my own crackers. I took last years mish mash selection and wrapped them in my signature bubble tissue paper. Added some bows and voila!

And what's a table without a Christmas cake! Bake your own or I can highly recommend Waitrose Christmas Cake mix Then add fondant and decorate with cut out snowflakes and a dash of edible glitter.

And how glorious does the cake look on my stand? The perfect way to present dessert.
