A Table for the Season

So folks its that time of year again.... Tis the season to deck the halls with bells & holly and all that palaver, but hows the epicentre of all your festivities looking??
Nope not the tree, the roaring log fire, decorations or even the colour scheme, all very important components in making it gel together I know.

But I'm talking dining tables and all the trimmings !!
