Deck The Tables
Preparing for Christmas dinner or lunch is about more than just the food. It's the chance to have some fun with beautiful and decorative flourishes.

The World Child Cancer Charitable Trust teamed up with MiNDFOOD for the MiNDFOOD Festive Home tour, which helped raise funds for children with cancer in the Pacific.

Ten gorgeous homes around Auckland kindly opened their doors to showcase their spectacular Christmas table settings, designed by some of the finest Kiwi decor stylists, to excite and inspire visitors for their own entertaining these holidays.

Of course, vibrant touches of red and green are always hero colours for this time of year, but if you feel like steering away from the classic palette, all-white is a striking choice that can look quite stunning with accents of gold or silver, or even more natural decoration such as ferns, greenery or flowers picked straight from the garden. No matter the time you dine, a flickering candle always creates a grand sense of occasion.
