The Sainsbury’s Home Winter Tale collection is a delightfully monochrome range of tableware. The pretty flowers provide the only decoration needed, bar some chunky glass and some silver tealight holders. The addition of a rustic wreath and simple fairy lights turns the simply laid table into something special.
Sainsbury’s Home Winter Tale dining collection, prices from £1.50.
Even HomeSense have embraced the pared back look. Catkins in a white pitcher replace the gaudy Christmas tree, while a white wreath, simple garland and fluffy white owl complete the holiday decorations.
And just in case you think that all of this white is cold, just look what happens in candlelight.
