“Christmas for me is a time to relax and unwind, I like to keep things simple and not too Christmasy. My Christmas table setting is like my own decorating style – relaxed laid back and casual. Of course colourful
too with a touch of my two favourites – stripes a little bit nautical.

I love incorporating nature in to all things that i do and have used blue spruce a type of pine as my touch of Christmas as decoration on the table (from www.pearsonsflorist.com.au) I love that it’s classic Christmas with a twist. I love to customise and to use what I already have. I made these paper placemats from some artist paper and some spare paint and used irregular brush strokes to create the stripes in my favourite shade blue. I love combining timber with strong bright colours I think this is a very Australian style and a Christmas table setting is the perfect time to add a pop.

I have used the Hay Kaleido trays from yellowbungalow.com.au; bees wax candles from www.queenb.com.au are perfect for the table I love scented candles but not at the dinner table – candles always add a little magic. I love to serve my favourites prawns, pavolva (which I love to decorate at the table with summer berries) ginger beer and champagne. Remember to leave room for these and not overcrowd your table – I like a layered but stream lined style table. Christmas for me is spent with family and friends never too far from the beach.”

Jason’s table is MARK TUCKEY’S PAINTED RAIL DINGING TABLE
