To make your table confetti and gold 'star' decorations, start by cutting some ivy leaves - we got these from our garden.
Then, use spray mount and place them, one by one, onto some gold leaf (this is dutch metal from a craft shop at around £5 per book).
Less is more here as they have such impact. We only used about 7-8 ivy leaves with gold and left the rest natural to use as table confetti.
...and don't worry about any holes or textures as they only add to the organic beauty of it!
Now, to create your christmas tree napkins, take simple white cotton napkins, to keep it elegant, and follow our picture guide below to learn how to fold it.
Once you get the hang of one you will easily get into the flow for all the others and perhaps this can become a new tradition.
Flip it over at this stage to fold the sides over, one after the other, making the tree shape come to life...
Now flip it over again and pull the corners up one by one, tucking them under as you go...
Buckley can't resist getting involved...
You may notice that we don't have crackers on our finished table for this very reason - he hates the bang so we don't use them.
Place a gold ivy leaf at the top of your napkin trees to look like a star and sprinkle the rest of your leaves across the table cloth for an added layer of natural beauty.
Tuck a name card into the fold of the napkin tree so that your guests know where to sit - nothing beats a hand written place setting in gold pen!
The curves of the candle sticks are so mesmerising that you could put them on our mantle piece all year round when they are not entertaining your guests.

But for now, paired with the vintage pink crockery and relaxed look of the crumpled tablecloth, they are sure to give you a dinner to remember.
Here's to you and we hope we've helped to inspire you to go organic with your table dressing x
