Gold and Silver Snowflake Christmas Table Setting

One of my favorite things about the holidays is the multiple opportunities we have to gather with family and friends to celebrate the season.  If you read my last post, you know that we are hosting two seated dinners for Christmas this year.  This Gold and Silver Snowflake Christmas Table Setting is the second table I have set for both events.

The first event is our neighborhood progressive dinner and we have 20 guests coming for the main course.  Based on the numbers, I set this table for eight, a table for 6 in my smaller dining area and a table for 4 in my breakfast area.  In my last post, I shared how I came up with my snowflake theme.  I wanted to have a theme that could be shared on all of my tables with differences based on all of my serving pieces.

The elements from this Winter White Snowflake Table Setting that I am also using on this new table setting include:

  • The natural greenery
  • Ornamental Christmas trees
  • The silver beaded chargers
  • White dinner napkins
  • The Riedel wine glasses
  • Christmas ornaments
  • Snowflake-themed plates
  • Snowflake-themed placemats 
  • A variety of votive candle holders

Gold and Silver Snowflake Table Setting

For this new table setting in my dining room, I wanted to stick with the theme, but modify the colors to coordinate with the Christmas decor in this room.  I decorated my tree in this room with a mix of metallics, so that is why I chose to use gold and silver for this area.  Fortunately, I already had these perfect snowflake plates (from HomeGoods) from last year so they started things off.

The place settings for this Gold and Silver Snowflake Table Setting

The big find for this table setting was the placemats!!  Since you probably will not believe that I stumbled onto them at Big Lots (while shopping for a specific white elephant gift), I took a picture of them to prove it!! He, he!  Yep, that price tag says $2.50!!

Since we are only serving the main course, I kept these place settings simple so that my guests are not having to deal with multiple plates.  I actually may be using a formal plastic plate over this one because we have to dash off to the next course after our course and we don’t want to be dealing with washing plates for 20 that night!

To coordinate with the other tables, I used the same silver beaded chargers, our Riedel wine glasses, white dinner napkins (with silver trim) and the natural garland in leiu of flowers.

The Centerpiece for the Gold and Silver Snowflake Christmas Table Setting

To create this centerpiece, I started with the natural cedar garland I bought from Home Depot for $15.99!  It was so long, I could drape it over the ends of the table.  The garland curved naturally and I just ran with that.

In fact, I had so much left over, I cut off the access and placed it here…

Next, I placed in the gold cone Christmas trees.  Using different heights adds to the drama of the centerpiece.  I chose to use these Christmas trees to coordinate with the Silver and Gold Glam Christmas Centerpiece I created for our buffet (shown here).

All there was left to do was to place in a variety of gold Christmas ornaments and then the votive holders.

I will be making some changes to this area after the new year.  If you would like to shop the look of my dining room as it is now, click on the images below.

I am so glad you stopped by today to see our new Gold and Silver Snowflake Christmas Table Setting!  Now that the tables are wrapped up, I can focus on menus and other party planning.  I highly recommend getting your table setting ready early to lighten your load as you get closer to your functions.  Are you hosting any Christmas parties this year?!

    This looks nice in a bright and airy room as you have here, the natural light makes the gold and silver accent pieces sparkle! I am sure your guests will give you lots of compliments once they see your christmas dining room and table setting.
