Holiday Tabletop: Sparkle & Shine

goldtable_1

As previously mentioned here, I love and enjoy traditional holiday décor as much as anyone. However, there is something about silver, gold and sparkle that lights me up inside. Perhaps it’s the glamourous side of me, but holiday décor that shimmers and sparkles adds a level of chic sophistication that red and green can’t compete with.

Like most table settings it’s all in the details. Mix and match silver and gold in different saturations to achieve your desired aesthetic. For me that means a table runner that incorporates both silver, gold and sparkle, silver charger plates, glittery trees, metallic reindeer and an assortment of tree ornaments in complementary tones. To soften the brightness I add pops of white with china and candles. White has a subtle way of balancing everything while enhancing it at the same time. The perfect finishing touch?
