SILVER AND GOLD CHRISTMAS TABLE- A fantasy of a table filled with snow, silver, gold and touches of Christmas green.

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?


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?

Each place is set with two of my favorite white dishes.

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.

  12. Yvonne S. says:

    Love the table settings. I would rather desire a tblescape for hours vs cooking for hours!!

  13. Karen Stopher says:

    Your table is just beautiful! Thank you for saying it is a fantasy table, I see so many beautiful tables with lots of layers of plates, gift, napkins, etc. while the are beautiful to look at they are impractical for me when actually having guests. How to disassemble when ready to eat. It is a great effort now for me to entertain now as I once did. II still want it to be lovely but simple. You have shown both ways many times, So I appreciate your comment, relieves some of the pressure somehow.

  14. Marcia O'Brien says:

    Love your elegant holiday table. Sharing this idea with a local florist I have done business with for many years . She checked on white orchids for me. Her husband had an appointment in the city she had him check on orchids at Sprouts lo and behold he brought home 3 beautiful orchids. She & her husband have 3 of most wonderful daughters. Yvonne you don’t know how far reaching affects your decorating goes. Bless you and your family this holiday season.

  15. I’m speechless ~ which none of my family or friends would believe!

  16. Shirley@Housepitality Designs says:

    Stunning, just stunning Yvonne…love that you sprinkled the snow on the table for that elegant snowy effect!

    I love your table setting! It is so beautiful. The slight touch of green really is perfect. Every time I see your posts, I want to have a dinner party!

  28. Annette Loscialpo says:

    Your table is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen. I’ve tried to copy it with things I already have. I’m over 75 so not too interested in acquiring much new. But you tempt me.

  29. Ruth Newton says:

    This is absolutely stunning Yvonne! I’m so inspired by your beautiful tablescape!

  30. Different and delightful! I love the touches of green. I was at an estate sale and passed up green depression glass. Am rethinking that!! Merry Christmas!

  31. My goodness, I love your style, and all the directions it runs!! Thank you for the idea of wreaths between plates. I’ve never thought of setting a beautiful table just for the lovliness and not for dining!! You inspired me years ago to expand my dish inventory ~ now I think I’ll start to enjoy it more often. Have a blessed and merry Christmas <3
