The home of inspiration


It’s that time of year when colder weather and darker nights have arrived and you’re spending much more time snuggled up on your sofa.

Fear not! With the Christmas party season firmly on the horizon, there’s no better time to host your own dinner party.

Whether you’re a meticulous planner who considers every detail or someone who prefers a more relaxed affair with finger foods and friends, at the heart of every great dinner party sits a beautiful dining table.

We’d love to hear how you’re planning your Christmas dinner parties, sourcing a crowd-pleasing menu and calculating the number of extra seats you’ll need. Share your dream dinner party with us and you could win a new Emily dining table set and 4 cross back chairs.

Which guests will be given a seat at your dining table?

Whilst you’re preparing for the upcoming festivities, we want to know which famous person (or people) you’d most want to invite over for dinner this Christmas.

Would you dine in with David Beckham, quiz The Queen about her record-breaking reign or put the world to rights with Prime Minister David Cameron?

It’s a question some of us will know the answer to straight away. Or you might need a little bit more time to think about whom to pull your Christmas cracker with.

Perhaps there are a few famous figures you’ve been longing to meet, so you can finally get the answer to that burning question you’ve always wanted to ask them.
