3 Tips to Set a Magical Silver and Gold Christmas Table
Create a Fabulous Centerpiece
Try creating a centerpiece that you can leave up for the whole holiday season. This will allow you to enjoy it for a long time and will take one thing off your plate the day of the get together.
For my centerpiece, I used ornaments I already had on hand. Large, medium and small, mercury glass silver and gold ornaments, mixed with a gold leave garland, some snowflake ornaments and ribbon!
Recreate the Look
- First place your favorite white tablecloth on the table. My favorite is this gold scalloped edge tablecloth.
- Second, lay out your gold leaf garland.
- Next, start laying out your largest ornaments first. Tuck them into the garland. I used 5.
- Mix in your medium ornaments – about 5-8.
- Tuck in your small ornaments – around 5-10.
- Place a few snowflake ornaments leaning on the ornaments – 5-8.
- Tie some thin ribbon to the large ornaments. Curl with your finger.
- Use a few gold leaf picks for added fulness.

Make your Place Settings Special
The key to a magical place setting is to make the guest feel extra special! It starts with pretty dishes! For my magical silver and gold table, I used these charming gold ruffle chargers. They are whimsical, fun and affordable!!!
My gold rimmed dishes add a touch of class. If you are looking for a versatile set of dishes that you can use for any season and for every occasion, these are a fabulous option!
Use gold flatware to tie the look together. This is another thing I use ALL the time!
For that extra special something, something, use these darling poppers by Jouer. I placed one at each seat at the table for my girl friend’s to take home. The gold popper includes two lip glosses -one sparkle and one matte. The blush popper has a rose lip scrub to exfoliate and lip enhancer to create fuller lips. Everything from the packaging, to the glitzy tag scream Christmas magic! They really make the table magical!
These would also be a fabulous stocking stuffer or gift for any girl in your life.
Create a Magical Mood
Create a magical mood by adding votives to the table and a few tapper candles. I love this gold set of votives. They dress almost every single table I set! Whether y0ur party is during the day or night, light your candles to add some Christmas magic!
Think about what else you have displayed in the room that can add to the feel. I added some mercury glass Christmas trees for their reflective finish. Light dances off them creating a magical mood.
Try setting a magical silver and gold Christmas table at your house this year!
