Gold Fine China Dinnerware

Completing Our Gold Christmas Tree Tablescape

with Gold Fine China Dinnerware

 

Gold fine china dinnerware adds a certain sense of glamor to a Christmas dinner table.  Gold decor always brings to mind royalty, wealth,  opulence and elegance and this is exactly how we want our guest to feel when they are sitting down to feast at our beautiful gold decor Christmas table.  We want them to feel like royalty.  We want to them to over indulge all their senses with the glamorous  elegance we are providing for them.

A formal table starts with beautiful layers; the first layer of which are the table linens.  When we first selected the table linens for our Gold Christmas Tree Tablescape we wanted to use a light neutral color to help reflect the light generated from all of the candles we are using on our gold tablescape.  Then the tablescape was created in layers using metallic gold, copper, bronze and silver Christmas trees and candles.

The last step of layer is selecting the gold fine china dinnerware sets we want to use.  Once we have selected the perfect gold fine china dinnerware pattern we won’t stop there.  Personally, I usually use two different sets of china to layer, but I have been known to use three sets.  It all depends on the amount of courses I intend to serve my guest and how elaborate a Christmas dinner it is going to be.

By layering our place settings we are giving our guest warmth, visual interest and excitement all at the same time.  The table looks fabulous and our guest know that we care enough about them to have created this gorgeous setting  for them to eat a delectable meal. And we are content with the fact we have done what it takes by going over the top to create a beautiful experience their dining pleasure.

I have selected several examples of gold fine china dinnerware sets, gold stemware and gold flatware place settings to inspire and maximize the effects of the sparkling glamor on our gold dinner table.  For our first layer, a gold charger should be selected to reflect the candle light making the table shimmer and sparkle with holiday magic.

Now that we have selected a stunning gold charger for the first layer of our  place setting, it is time to select the gold fine china dinnerware sets we want to use for our place settings.  As I already said, I like to mix and match two different fine china sets which complement each other. Below I have selected several different styles, in different price ranges, of gold fine china which will complement the Gold Christmas Tree Tablescape we have been recreating.

Beautiful Gold Dinnerware Christmas Table Setting

This is a real simple yet beautifully elegant gold fine china dinnerware setting.  In this example, they used a charger from the Lenox Eternal Collection, a dinner plate from the Arte Italica Vetro Gold Dinnerware Collectionfeatured below, and topped it with a plain white salad plate. The creamy ivory napkin is fanned on the salad plate with a copper bead and cording napkin ring using a fresh sprig of spruce tucked under the napkin ring.  The gold hand painted design water and wine glasses can be found below.

Gold Fine China Dinnerware

Arte Italica Four Vetro Gold Dinnerware

My Mother had a set of this designer gold Italian glassware and I always loved the look of its gold lacy elegance. This Italian made fine dining gold dinnerware and stemware is heirloom quality made of hand-etched glass embellished with 18-karat yellow gold for a stunning and elegant setting. Every Arte Italica Vetro piece is handcrafted into one-of-a-kind unique pieces.

The glassware I am showcasing here is from their gold collection. They also have a silver collection too. This glassware is something I would want to pass down to my future generations as an heirloom collection.  I am featuring a few pieces from the collection to be viewed below, but you can see the complete gold collection at Arte Italica Vetro Gold Dinnerware Collection.  The lacy border design is first intricately etched on the glass then hand painted with 18 karat gold. It has been selling out on Amazon and I don’t think it is going to be replenished in the gold.

Arte Italica Vetro Gold Dinner Plate is the second layer used when setting an formally elegant dinner table. I would first set down a gold charger as the first layer, then place the plate upon the charger as the second layer.

I would then alternate gold banded fine china pieces, such as Lenox Lowell Gold Banded Ivory China, with the handcrafted Italian gold patterned glass. As an example, I might use a Lenox Gold Banded salad plate as the next layer and a Vetro Gold soup bowl as the last layer.

The alternative would be starting with an Arte Italica Vetro Gold charger as the first layer, followed by a Lenox Gold Banded dinner plate, then a Vetro Gold salad plate and so on.

Mixing and matching gold rimmed ivory China with the Arte Italica Vetro Gold will dazzle your guest with their elegance. They will feel as pampered as royalty.

Using Pieces from Sets Featured on this Post

Recreate this gold table setting using pieces from the fine china featured on this page.

 

You can’t tell how exquisite this setting actually looks from this poor quality photo, but when it is put together on the Gold Christmas Tree Tablescape we have been recreating, along with all of the candle light, it is really a gorgeous table setting.

Start tis table setting with an Arte Italica Vetro Gold Charger Plate as the bottom, first layer. The charger is see through glass with 18kt gold hand painted designs so be sure to have a pretty table cloth or place mat underneath it.

For the second layer I would use a white or ivory fine china dinner plate with a gold band edging such as any of the dinnerware sets shown above.

For the third layer I would use a Royal Crown Derby Gold Aves salad plate.

And for the fourth and final layer I would top the place setting with a Lenox Holiday soup bowl and add a gold placecard holder as the finishing touch.

Just like the china pattern, this wine goblet has simple, classic lines that complement a more formal table setting. Pair the goblet with any gold themed dinnerware sets.
