A Christmas Table Setting

Back when I created this table setting, I knew I wanted to create a table setting for Christmas using many, if not all, of the same objects.   I saw this dinner with JY and Ashlee as a great opportunity to create something new!   Here's what I came up with.

First, I placed our white runner across the table.  I laid our silver chargers on top to keep the white table runner white throughout the meal.  For the other two place settings, I pull out our moss green place mats.  

Next I placed our silver and gold mercury votives and the larger candlesticks on each side of the runner.  

I finished the look by stacking gold and silver ornaments, leftover from these pillars, in this glassware.

The shine and sparkle of the ornaments and votives reminded me of hundreds of tiny lights, which gave me an idea.  I went into our living room and light all of the various candles we had on our bookshelves.  Now the theme of the dinner really was a night of many lights!

Alas, the table setting was short-lived as Woods decided the ornaments looked an awful like some of his toys and took to batting them around while we tried to sleep.  Oh well, it was beautiful while it lasted!

Have you done your table setting for Christmas?  Share stories or links below.  I'm always looking for new ideas!


  1. I love it. I used all silver ornaments for my table setting but I do like the silver and gold combo. It came out great!

  2. Thanks Ashly! I hope you have a Merry Christmas!! :)
