Festive Feast | real living magazine
Amart Furniture is excited to partner with real living magazine stylist Jackie Brown to bring you the latest looks for you home with the Smart Styling series. In the January edition, Jackie demonstrates how you can create a stunning festive feast setting for your Christmas celebrations. On this page you’ll find the products Jackie used to create the stunning look you see above.
Keen to create a stunning outdoors festive feast setting of your own? Jackie says the starting point is a great table setting, and loves bench seats as they can squeeze in a few extra people. For larger gatherings, Jackie suggests using an indoors setting, as she has here. Take it outdoors for your feast, then just take it back indoors again. Easy! Build the look by layering simple crockery – Jackie suggests white as it’s easy to accent with different cutlery, glassware, and napkins. Just like indoors, decorate your setting with flowers and candles, but Jackie says you can afford to go for bigger, bolder flowers, and chunkier candlesticks and votives when outdoors.
You can create an intimate feeling in your outdoors dining zone by grouping pot plants around the table setting. Worried you’ll spend the whole day running back and forth from the kitchen? To make outdoors entertaining that bit easier, Jackie suggests placing bowls and platters of all the food on the table and letting guests serve themselves, so it’s more relaxed for everyone, including you!

Jackie’s top tips for a pretty festive feast table setting on a budget:
- Use decorative paper napkins to dress up plain white crockery.
- Place a single flower or sprig of foliage from the garden on each place setting.
- Decorate and flavour jugs of tap water with slices of orange, lemon or lime or even mint leaves.
