Set a Christmas Tablescape
The holidays have arrived, and I’m embracing my love for gold yet again this season. I recently shared a holiday table with lots of pretty greens and reds here, but I also love white and gold together during the Christmas season! It reminds me a bit of a “white winter wonderland” and though we rarely get snow in Nashville, at least the dining room can be set for the occasion. :)
I had been eyeing these gold cheetah plates for months before I snagged them on a Black Friday sale. I can’t wait to use these year-round, but I knew exactly how I wanted to use them for my Christmas tablescape this year. I placed them on top of my favorite go-to white dinner plate.
The gold chargers are a favorite of mine. I’m often asked where they came from, but sadly, I snagged them at a little hole-in-the-wall shop in Amsterdam two summers ago. So I’m not much help there, but I’ve found some similar looking ones from Sur La Table that are equally as beautiful!
I love adding these mini boxwood wreathes to the back of my dining chairs! I have used them for several tablescapes, and it’s easy to change out the ribbon to match your decor. This ribbon came from NashvilleWraps.com!
At each place setting, I used magnolia leaves with a gold marker to create simple place cards. I don’t have calligraphy-level handwriting by any means, but it can still very pretty and easy to create. I love a personalized touch, especially during the holidays.
I used extra magnolia leaves, pine and holly throughout the centerpiece of the table which was created by gathering all my gold and silver trees together for a festive tablescape “runner”. These were literally cut from my own yard, so setting a gorgeous table doesn’t have to be an expensive venture!
Another tip I have is lighting! I added a few candles and votives in as well as twinkle lights. These are the exact twinkle lights I use! They add the perfect festive touch and kids love them. Adults too. ;)
You can certainly recreate this table with your own holiday decor. You could use shorter trees (which does make it easier to chat across the table), a collection of holiday candles, or other festive decor. I just wanted to show you what a little gold and greenery can do when pulled together. I think it looks magical! George, my pup, also agrees.
