Once Halloween ends, I am one eager gal to get things going for the holidays! I start thinking months ahead about what color schemes I might use, the formality of my decor, and how I will utilize my prior year’s decorations in new ways. Today, I am sharing a little Silver and Gold Glam Christmas Centerpiece I put together for the buffet in our dining room.
For this area, I decided to use a combination of metallics so that I can pretty much do anything with my multiple table settings throughout the holiday season. We will typically entertain at least once a week during the holidays, so I wanted to keep my color palette neutral.

How I created this Silver and Gold Glam Christmas Centerpiece
This was a very straightforward process. First, I placed the three Christmas trees randomly on the buffet (putting the tallest one in the middle).
Secondly, I wrapped the Christmas garland around the bases of the trees until it felt balanced. If you don’t have garland that works you could use Christmas picks to achieve a similar look.
Next, I placed in the large handblown gold glass ornaments for contrast and then followed up by placing in the rest of the antique mercury glass ornaments (from HomeGoods).
Any variety of ornaments would work here along with a different color palette that would work with the rest of your decor.
Finally, a few votive holders finish off the look. Super festive!
Can I tell you how difficult it is to shoot photos of glass and with mirrors without photobombing the shots?! I see myself in every close-up shot in the glass ornaments, so there is no guessing who took these photos. Insert smiley face.
Having the mirrors behind this centerpiece doubles the impact it has which I always have to think about.
Thanks for stopping by to see this simple silver and gold glam Christmas centerpiece. There is a lot more decorating going on around here. We go home to Dallas for Thanksgiving, so I like to come back home here in Denver to a fully decorated home to enjoy for the coming month.
Do you do your Christmas decorating before or after Thanksgiving?? I would love to hear from you.
