Create an uncomplicated organic setting with pinecones and wheat. The gingham tablecloth and natural rattan tablemats add ease and comfort to this table-style. The silverware and the simple fanned-out napkin adds flair and style.

Things To Remember When Styling Your Table:
Use what you already have in your home and create unexpected combinations that will make your table uniquely yours and take your Christmas table to the next level.
Choose a theme - Start by matching the colors to your dining room or Christmas decorations. Opt for a simple tablecloth and pair it with a decorative table runner to create your centerpiece.
Create homemade place settings - Homemade place settings is a great way to welcome your guests to the table and adds a personal touch.
Choose your centrepiece carefully - Your centerpiece is the focal point of your table, but you do not want it to take up too much space. So, pick candelabras or vases with narrow bases so you can still see across the table and have plenty of space for the food.
Meet GoBo. The naturally nurturing, a breath of fresh air for your underarms! Utilising the powerful properties of glycolic acid - already proving highly popular in deodorant products over in the USA - GoBo creates beautifully smooth and soft underarms that can sweat naturally without the inconvenience of embarrassing odour.
We girls have tried GoBo here at Fashions Finest, and we can promise that it really does live up to it’s promises. For the two weeks we have been using this roll-on, we have experienced the subtle, pretty but not overpowering scent, and all day freshness it brings. This roll on deodorant is the UK's first AHA-formulated deodorant that effectively eliminates odours whilst allowing your body to perspire naturally.
Pesky bacteria is killed deep within the dermis while the top layer of skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells - both of which contribute to the dreaded B.O. The result is a natural 'deep-clean' which helps eliminate deep stubborn sweat and grime build-up - ideal to detox your underarms from years of heavy deodorant use in order to switch to a natural aluminium-free deodorant.
Naturally nurturing, GoBo can also be used between skin folds and under breasts to prevent or neutralise body odour. For excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, GoBo can be used under an antiperspirant deodorant to prevent odour and then can be reapplied throughout the day if persistent body odour occurs.
Fashions Finest loves the natural active ingredients, which are actually good for your body, and not harmful, as many deodorant ingredients can be. Fragranced with natural floral waters, GoBo is aluminium-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free, essential oil-free and made in the UK.
GoBo's formulation also provides added benefits for healthy underarms, including helping to prevent in-growing hairs and painful blocked sweat glands and fading dark pigmentation caused by shaving
