The festive season is a time when you’ll be welcoming more visitors than usual. They’ll be dropping by with gifts, coming over for Christmas lunch or dinner and around for catch-ups in that awkward week between Christmas and New Year’s.

Because of that, you’ll want to make sure your home looks its best and is dressed for the holidays — but not in a tacky way, of course. You can still have decorations that convey the holiday theme, without them being gaudy.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite pieces that fit that bill. From green-trimmed side plates and linen napkins, to red and gold ornaments, these are the decorations that after Christmas is over, you may even want to keep out.
