Welcome to our elegant white and gold Christmas table!
I knew I wanted a long runner of greenery and this Christmas table greenery centerpiece turned out just how I’d dreamed it up.
I found the set of five gold candlestick holders at Goodwill and they were too pretty to spray paint so I left them gold. I’m really glad I did! They add a simple touch of sophistication to the centerpiece. The other four candlestick holders were also thrifted and mis-matched so I simply spray painted them white to match the rest of the decor.
I wrapped the large plates in my linen napkins to create a mix of playful and formal. The wrap placement lets their form stay soft and flexible but keeps them in place for a nice place setting.
I made the name place holders out of corks and faux greenery. The jingle bell adds another bit of playful Christmas style to the plate and continues the gold color from the candlesticks holders and silverware.

My son, Andrew, was really excited that I photographed his spot at the table. 😉
The faux poinsettias and birch logs add some dimension to the Christmas table garland centerpiece by adding a few more natural elements to the display.
I can’t wait to see how the table looks in the evening when it’s dark outside!
Isn’t the long row of tall candlesticks so pretty?
I have to be honest, gold silverware is my new obsession… It’s just so stunning and elegant!
What do you think of this simple Christmas table garland centerpiece? Pretty easy way to make a stunning tablescape, don’t you think?
Only a few more days until we get to linger at this table over filet minion and red wine… Yay! Oh, have I mentioned before that I’m a foodie? If not, I am. Like BIG TIME. 😉
