When Christmas is in the air it’s time to set a table worthy of the season. This year my decor is soft and filled with lots of silver and white and touches of gold. No reds here just celadon greens and evergreen. All of this is laid over a tablecloth of snow! Because aren’t we all dreaming of a white Christmas?
Hey friends, our latest Decorating Tips and Tricks podcast is all about Christmas shopping. And we love small businesses so we are concentrating on fabulous small businesses with gorgeous and unique things! We call our episode: SHOP SMALL GIVE BIG.

Today I’m so thrilled to be part of STYLED AND SET HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING BLOG TOUR. Make sure to check out the beautiful tables at the end of this post!
Today my table is set with lots of metallic sparkle and just a hint of green!
This Christmas table is what I like to call a fantasy table. Full of pretty touches that may not work if we actually were to sit down and have dinner at it. But what better time for a snowy fantasy than at Christmas, right?
The top dish is called Leaf And Berry. I bought it years ago and I have not been able to find this pattern for a while! It looks very festive and although I use it all year long I think it looks the best at Christmas!
One of my favorite tablescaping tricks is to put a wreath between plates. Such a surprise and a beautiful look!
I also use…
- grapevine wreaths
- preserved boxwood wreaths
- willow wreaths
- magnolia leaf wreaths
- moss wreaths
For today’s table, I used faux pine wreaths. I do take all the plate and the wreath away before serving a meal.
Do you see the little bees on the handle of my flatware? These are my everyday stainless but I thought the bees would lend themselves to the nature theme of the table. If you like my flatware you can see it HERE. These would make a beautiful Christmas gift!
The light reflects off of these fluted green and clear glass goblets. They give the other shiny objects on the table a little competition! The green flutes came from target years ago. Go HERE to see their new style. So pretty!
A pretty silver glass ornament tied up with a celadon bow sits at each place. I love to give my guests something small to take home.
Snow creates a table runner drifting down the center of the table.
Three potted orchids are the star of this table. I put them in these ornate mercury glass cache pots.
The center of the table is also filled with glass balls and frosted pinecones and mercury glass candles. Oh, and a sweet pair of reindeer’s salt and pepper shakers.
