3 Christmas table looks with Dee Campling

‘Tis the season to get stylish

Interior designer and stylist Dee Campling shows us three fabulous ways to style the same white plate for Christmas Day. Read on to find your favourite.

“You absolutely cannot beat a pure white dinner service. It’s so versatile and the neutral nature of the colour allows other elements of the dinner party to take centre stage. If you’re a brilliant cook then it can be the food that takes centre stage of course. If, like me though, you’re not a great cook, then understated white tableware allows you to get as creative as you like with your table styling skills.”

“Sainsbury’s Home’s Purity tableware is the perfect example of a neutral dinner service. It’s beautiful but understated, functional but not bland and easy to mix and match. Sainsbury’s Home also has some brilliant decoration ranges available this Christmas which I’ve used to style up the Purity set in three different ways for Christmas.”



“Sainsbury’s Home Winters Mist range is for lovers of the paired back Scandi look.”

“This look is all about white and silver and very little other colour. To complete this look I’ve styled the Purity tableware with luxury silver crackers, star candles and a silver charger and added texture with a linen tablecloth. A little colour has been added with Winters Mist faux wreath and Winters Mist faux garland.”


“Create your own white Christmas with this fresh and light look and cosy it up by lighting the candles – the candlelight will reflect beautifully in the shiny surfaces and stop the look from seeming cold or sterile.”




“Sainsbury’s Home’s Very Merry Christmas range is new and a modern take on playful and kitsch.”

“I love the bright colours in this range and who doesn’t love a dog in reindeer ears and a bauble covered jumper? Here I’ve picked up on the red of the doggy decoration and added red bingo game crackers, a snow globe cloche and a monochromatic table cloth.”




“Sainsbury’s Home’s Forest Hideaway range is inspired by the British countryside and is all about foraged foliage and rustic textures.”

“I’m a huge fan of foraging and here I’ve collected snow berries, pine cones and ferns from the woods to embellish the table. It’s really fun to go out and collect foliage from the woods and has the added bonus of being free too.”


“The colours and textures of the foliage, together with the rustic wood of the table really highlight the clean lines of the tableware. I’ve accessorised the look with jute coasters, gold bells and tartan crackers.”

“Whichever look you go for this Christmas, Sainsbury’s Home has enough stylish accessories to help you pull of your perfect Christmas look.”
