Cre­ate a sparkling ta­ble ready for your fab­u­lous Christ­mas meal. Layer the place set­tings, start­ing with a charger plate, then your din­ner plates. Fill cake stands with fruit and gifts, ar­range beau­ti­ful flo­ral dis­plays stud­ded with gold pil­lar candles along the mid­dle of the ta­ble, and add a few treats at each place set­ting. Hey presto – all set for the main event!
