This Christmas, though, we’re planning on doing things properly with a Christmas table that’ll make guests exclaim in delight. Crackers, napkins, centre pieces and candles – we’re not doing it by halves! Here’s what we’ve found to bring some festive cheer to your Christmas table decorations this year.
North Pole friends luxury Christmas crackers, Nancy & Betty
We love these eco friendly, plastic free, recyclable crackers which feature a mixed box set of Father Christmas, elves and Rudolph.
