Make Christmas dinner more magical

When we get together with family and friends during the holiday period, it’s almost always around the table. And even small spaces can play host to extravagant festive feasts – especially when you cram in a few more chairs and turn your sideboard into a handy extra serving space. Here’s how!
Three people gather round a round INGATORP table decorated with fresh flowers to eat a holiday meal together.

Get round the table

A round table gives any festive meal a family feel, as the shape means everyone faces each other and nobody feels left out sat on the end. This one’s wipe-clean too – which is really useful at tidying-up time, trust us.

Make an impression with dinnerware

White’s alright, but bolder is better – layer contrasting-coloured plates for the different courses of your Christmas meal to add interest (and make everyone excited for what’s coming next!).

A selection of IKEA food, including plant balls, salmon and crispbread, is arranged on a grey sideboard.

Try out something tasty

Picked out the perfect serveware, but don’t have anything to put in it? We’ve got a whole range of Christmas and holiday food that’ll give you a taste of how we celebrate up here in Sweden.

Step up your serving game

Serving is half the fun – and even more so with this INBRINGANDE serving stand. Use it to set the table for a party or carry it around to serve visitors tasty bites like canapés or pastries.

Save leftovers for later

Too much food to go round? These containers keep it fresh for meals to come! Alternatively, send it home with your guests if you’re not so keen on eating leftovers until New Year.
