It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our home! If you have been following me for a while, you know that decorating my dining room table for the holidays brings me so much JOY! With SO MANY Cyber Week sales going on, I figured now was the perfect time to share my Silver and Gold setting.
Last Christmas, my husband and I hosted our very first Christmas Eve dinner for my family. If you know anything about my family, you know that’s a HUGE DEAL! Growing up, we were raised with very strong Italian traditions. Christmas Eve being the biggest tradition of them all! Each year we partake in a month long event of baking Italian Christmas Cookies. Tri- colored Italian Venetian Cookies, Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti, Coconut Macaroons… the list goes one. By Christmas Eve, our home looks like you walked into a Bakery in Little Italy. Our Christmas Eve dinner traditions include a multi course dinner. We start with Antipasto then lead into the festa dei sette pesci, or Feast of the Seven Fishes. Lobster Bisque, Clams, Mussels, Calamari, Zuppe di pesce… you guys, it’s the absolute best!
So if you can’t tell, Christmas is kind of a big deal to our family. So hosting this event meant everything had to be perfect. Meaning, I needed the PERFECT TABLESCAPE. I always dreamed of having a silver and gold Christmas setting. I stumbled across these beautiful mercury glass trees and fell in love. These were my inspiration for the setting!
I found a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures to add levels. Then, I added a few bottle brush trees, frosted pinecones, and candles! I absolutely LOVE the final product!
If I were hosting Christmas, I would set out my Wedding China. I am one of the lucky few to have received ALL TWELVE settings! With us being out of town this year, I opted to use my everyday dishes. They still make the table look gorgeous! This year, I decided to finish the look with my buffalo print napkins. Turning them sideways with a napkin ring gave them a pretty “BOW” finish!
And there you have it, my silver and gold tablescape! I hope this inspires you one way or the other. I would love to hear about the Christmas traditions that mean most to you!
May your days be Merry & Bright!
