You've thought about gifts, who to invite and the all-important Christmas feast, but what about the Christmas table decorations? Here at hardtofind, we have done the thinking for you and come up with some fabulous Christmas table ideas, complete with Christmas crackers.

If you're entertaining with kids this Christmas, keep it simple. You can't go wrong with a red, white green and metallic colour scheme. Think paper napkins, plastic glasses and of course plenty of bon bons.

For a more sophisticated affair, keep a neutral palette with hints of metallic. Think European linen placemats, elegant glassware and fresh flowers. Trios of gold and silver baubles look striking in simple porcelain bowls as centrepieces, while fresh orchids make beautiful plate decorations.

And if you're entertaining overseas guests this Christmas, make their Xmas truly unique with Australian-themed table decorations. Set up a wooden table under the shade of a tree to enjoy the Aussie Christmas sun. Decorate the table with a natural coloured table runner, red napkins, a wreath centrepiece made of native Australian flora (think banksia, waratah, wattle or eucalyptus), vintage-style cutlery and tea lights.
