Elegant Silver Christmas Tablescape

We Do Love Elegance at Christmas

Elegant Silver Christmas Tablescape with Evergreen Center Piece Flanked by Silver Reindeer

And I do love the elegance of a Silver Christmas Tablescape. This silver and cream tablescape was created by Bonnie and shown by Susan from the Between Naps on the Porch Blog on one of her websites home tours pages. The marriage of the silver and creams of the table decor with the dark brown tones of the dining room are quite lovely, however, I want to drop the creams and brown and stay with the elegance of silver.

Now, let’s see what we can do to re-create this Silver Christmas Tablescape by taking it up to the next level of elegance with magical, enchanted silver table decor.

The first thing we need is a blank canvas which happens to be our tablecloth. I have an Irish white linen tablecloth (just like this one) which I like to use for many of my tablescapes. It was passed down from my Grandmother and it looks lovely for many different events. However, for this elegant silver tablescape, I prefer to use a silver or a platinum tablecloth to really make this table sparkle and to take it to the top of elegance.

On Bonnie’s tablescape in the top page photo, she chose to use an artificial evergreen swag as the base of the tablescape centerpiece. I prefer to use fresh evergreens for centerpieces. I think the scent coming from the fresh boughs is divine.

Every year we go into the woods on a Christmas tree farm and cut down a fresh tree. The bottom branches get trimmed and the trimmings are mine to use in tablescape decorations, on mantels, as wreaths, or wherever I like. The owners of the Christmas tree farm save trimmings for me too so that I always have an abundance of Christmas tree boughs to use as I like, inside or out.

Unfortunately, many people these days do not have that option. They may use artificial trees or live in an area too far away from fresh greens and boughs. However, it is possible to buy fresh boughs and branches at home improvement stores such as Home Depot or Lowe’s.

If fresh is completely out of the question in your home, for whatever reason, then, by all means, use artificial. I have found several really nice swags for you to consider from Amazon

Lighted Evergreen Holiday Christmas Garland

6 Ft Lighted Evergreen Holiday Christmas Garland - ChristmasTablescapeDecor.com6 Ft Lighted Evergreen Holiday Christmas GarlandClick Here for Details

A beautiful artificial 6-foot evergreen garland that can be laid out on the table or wrapped around a centerpiece. It is a lovely arrangement of faux pine needles with pine cones, holly, and white Christmas berry which are an excellent match for an elegant silver tablescape.
To begin the creation of your evergreen tablescape centerpiece, start by determining the length you will need for your table. With a table 6-foot or longer, depending on the thickness of the garland, one 5-ft to a 6-ft length of garland should be sufficient. For a smaller table, or if the garland is thin, I would then fold the garland in half or double up on the garland, whatever the case should be for your table.

Christmas Pine, Eucalyptus, and Red Berry Garlands

Combine these two garlands by gently twisting them together for a fuller more interesting variety of greens to lay down on the table.

Brighton Pine Eucalyptus & Christmas Berry Garland - ChristmasTablescapeDecor.comBrighton Pine Eucalyptus & Christmas Berry GarlandClick Here for DetailsChristmas Smokey Pine and Red Berry Garland - ChristmasTablescapeDecor.comChristmas Smokey Pine and Red Berry GarlandClick Here for Details

If you want the center arrangement to be lush and full, consider doubling the number of garland strands you plan to use. If the table is over 6-feet I would definitely use two strands of a 6-foot garland to lay down the length of the table, side-by-side, for the added fullness. Then twist the strands of garland loosely in a rope fashion and place on the center of your table, fluffing where needed.

Next add in the silver decoration picks, glittery pine cones, silver ornaments, candles, and lights you have chosen to use. Many of these pieces you may already have in your collection.

Make memories for your children on a nature walk in the woods collecting pine cones to add to the garland on the table. Make a day of it and plan a picnic. When you get home, clean the pine cones and paint the tips with glue and dust with silver glitter or spray paint the cones with silver glitter paint. No kids or no time? Buy a bag already painted. Better yet, buy them painted and attached to picks to make it even easier to add to the table garland.

Reindeer Candle Holders and Figurines

Part of this tablescape decor are reindeer figurines. The reindeer figurines featured in the photo below are candle holders and the ornaments cleverly held by the reindeer antlers are candles. I couldn’t find any silver reindeer candle holders similar to the ones she used that I liked, or that I thought were particularily appealing or attractive.

The pieces I found were either very cheap looking or too contemporary for the style of elegance we want to achieve when recreating Bonnie’s original idea. Instead, I am featuring a different variety of reindeer figurines and candle holders we can use for our own creative visions. Mix and match, layer and arrange, creating the look, you’ve envision for your own elegant silver themed Christmas tablescape.

A beautiful set of 3 serene reindeer to nestle amidst the tablescape evergreens. Place them in the center of the table anchored by a set of tall silver candlesticks.

In this next set of reindeer I would order two sets and place a standing deer at each end of the garland and the sitting deer in the center inbetween a pair of tall silver candle holders as the focal point of the centerpiece.

Antique style silver prancing deer table decor will add a feel of old world luxury to any Christmas table. They have a stone-look and are well suited for any tablescape with a silver theme. The deer are embellished with a white leaf pattern and comes with a dusting of “snow” bringing memories to mind of a serene wintery walk in the woods on a snowy morning. Each deer will arrive in a box in two-pieces. The ornately designed pedestal will have to be screwed into the reindeer.

He would be lovely centered between the two prancing deers featured above or the pair of silver standing stags featured below.

They may look like chrome or stainless steel, but these Christmas deer pillar candle holders featured above are actually made of porcelain! They will refect the table candlelight beautifully on any dinner tablescape or mantle display.

I believe in using lots and lots of candlelight for Christmas and holiday tablescapes. I like using groupings of three to create small vignettes. Put a vignette in the center of this tablescape creating its centerpiece.

Mercury Glass and Crystal Tea Light and Votive Candle Holders

Nestle in as many tea lights and votives that you can in and around the garland, the table, and at each place setting. Crystal and silver go together beautifully, like raspberries and dark chocolate. So don’t be afraid to mix and match these two elements on an elegant, formal, silver tablescape.

Add a tea light or a votive candle next to each place setting too. Place them to the top right of the dinner plate and next to the bread and butter plate.

Mix lots of crystal votives with votives of silver mercury glass on the dinner table to add even more glimmery magical light to the enchanted scene we are creating. We want this table to sparkle like magic!

The next mercury glass votives I am featuring below are gold on the inside and silver mercury glass on the outside. The gold reflection will give off a welcoming warmth to the sparkling tablescape. They are available in packs of 6, 12, and 36.

Crystal Chandelier Lighting

In Bonnie’s photo, looking up towards the ceiling, notice the evergreens Bonnie wove around her chandelier? Pay special attention to the extra long crystal icicles and the crystal snowflake ornaments she hung from the chandelier. Aren’t they lovely? They add a beautiful icy shimmer to the silver on the table while reflecting the candlelight.

You don’t yet have a chandelier over your dining room table? Why not get one up this holiday season? After all, where are you going to hang all the gorgeous crystal snowflakes and crystal icicles if you don’t have a chandelier?

The crystal chandeliers I am featuring below are as affordable as they are stunning! And they are on sale just in time for the holidays. There just isn’t an excuse not to get one at these prices. You will be so glad you did when you see how fabulous it looks hanging over your dining room table!

You may want to add more light to the evergreen on the table and into the chandelier by weaving this gorgeous silver ribbon lit up with cool LED lights. It comes in 6′ lengths and would also look lovely woven into greenery placed over the mantle and on outside front door decorations.

Hanging glass and crystal snowflakes, icicles, and crystal rain drops from the chandelier will add illumination to your dining room in a way that will dazzle your guests. The glass and crystal ornaments will reflect the light so well you will see the sparkles dancing on the walls like fairies dancing in the snow. Hang the pieces from fine nylon thread and they will give the optical illusion of magically dancing in the light on their own. Hang them on silver LED light ribbon for additional layers of sparkle.

I have bought a total of 3 sets of these glass icicles. They are fabulous and you can’t beat the price (1/3 the cost of real crystal) for a quality product. They are glass, but by the way they reflect the lights on the Christmas tree, you would swear they are crystal. They are beautifully handmade into 3 different lengths giving the illusion of real icicles dripping from the tree branches. They feel like they are so delicate that they would break easily, but they don’t. That is, as long as they are taken care of properly, they won’t.

I have crystal snowflakes that I put up with a large evergreen swag above the inside front picture window. I arrange the evergreens stretching them across the length of the picture window on the wall. I hang the crystal snowflakes from the swag branches on either ribbon or monofilament line (fishing line) at different lengths which hang down in front of the window.

I like to hang a long 2′ length, then a shorter 1′ length, then a long 2′ length, etc. continuing across the length of the window. The snowflakes reflect the sunlight during the day, the Christmas tree lights, and the outside lights shining through the window at night. They look fabulous and so festive!

Silver Tablescape

Stunning Silver Christmas Tablescape Ideas

Silver Pedestal Center Piece Bowl with Silver and Aqua OrnamentsCreating a Silver Christmas Tablescape doesn’t have to be difficult. With the insanity of the Christmas rush that hits us every year, deciding on a theme for our Christmas dinners can be that one more thing that makes us feel completely overwhelmed. It doesn’t have to be that way. Seriously, the hardest part is deciding the colors you want to use as this year’s theme.

Metallic décors are always a popular choice, regardless what is trending for the current season. For example, creating a gold tablescape is glitzy and glamorous; mix it with gemstone colors such as reds, greens or purples, and the color gets elevated to a richer more regal level.

Silver, like gold, is another versatile metal that can be mixed and matched with any color in the rainbow to make dazzling Christmas tablescapes. Because of its ability to reflect light, silver gives the illusion of ice turning a tablescape into a magical winter wonderland.

I have found a few simple, but elegant Christmas Silver Themed Tablescape ideas which you can easily recreate for a stunning Christmas table. Take an idea and add silver pieces to create an elegant Christmas story on the dinner table. Surround the tablescape with lots of candles and tea lights to add to the glimmer and sparkle magic always invokes. I like to surround and intertwine the centerpiece story with glittery garland and silver beads. Add stars to the table and mirrors under pieces. I always try to add pieces that sparkle from the reflected light.

Keep in mind there are only two really important things to remember when searching for Winter Christmas Tablescape Decor.

Have Fun and Enjoy the Season!

A Silver Contemporary Christmas Tablescape Idea

A Silver and White Contemporary Christmas Tablescape Idea

White is a fabulous color to blend with silver metal elements when designing a minimalist silver contemporary Christmas tablescape. Sarah designed this fabulous minimalist contemporary tablescape which she featured on her website,  Adventures of Our Family, on a very small budget.

Some of the table items are pieces left over from her wedding, some came from a local dollar store and some came from a local thrift shop. With a can of white spray paint in hand she turned her table decorations into something….well….fabulous!

Sarah mixes a bit of Old World charm with modern style by using a white Battenburg cut out lace table runner with a silver monochrome design in her table setting. This design will be an easy one to recreate with a few very small change options. As always I will included resources for you get a better idea as to what you too can achieve.

Sarah’s lovely tablescape design begins with a cut out design white Battenburg style lace table runner similar to this one.

I like the alternative idea of keeping with the silver contemporary theme by substituting a contemporary glitzy silver table runner with a chevron design instead of the antique style white cutout lace table runner.

Sparkling sequins and chevron designs are at an all time high in popularity this holiday Christmas season and this white and silver sequin table runner is perfect to use on a contemporary silver Christmas tablescape.

I would use it again for a New Year’s party or any special holiday event. Imagine how beautiful it will look when paired with cobalt blues for a special Hanukkah event.

Add an air of elegance to this silver contemporary Christmas tablescape by placing this silver table runner, handcrafted with embroidered beadwork, down the center of the table.

A more trendy approach to a contemporary table design for this holiday season would be to place 3 shorter length table runners across the width of the table instead of one down the length of the table. Just like they have done with the silver beaded table runner in the photo.

The 3 silver table runners do not necessarily need to match, but for this contemporary design I would keep them all silver. Perhaps place a sheer organza with a silver geometric design in the center with a solid silver satin on one end and a silver beaded table runner on the other end. It keeps with the silver contemporary theme, yet is an elegant design.

Sarah’s design using the white willow branches placed in a white vase as the focal point of her Christmas tablescape is gorgeous. She used decorative pieces she already hand on hand leftover from her wedding reception. We can do the same with either these white birch branches or there is a better idea, if you and your kids have the time.

Take a nature walk, collecting dead branches as you walk. When you have enough for your display, take them home and spray paint them white. All you have to pay for is the paint and the kids will have a great time helping Mom.

Most of us have a ton of old flower vases hanging out in the cupboards. With the great spray paints we have on the market these days, I would grab a can of Krylon Gloss White spray paint and paint one of the large vases to hold the tree branches for my centerpiece.

Did you know that Krylon now makes a spray glitter too? Why not add extra sparkle and glimmer to the table by spraying the branches with a top coat of Krylon Glitter Blast, Diamond Dust or Glitter Blast, Silver Flash.

Don’t have a glass vase; only a plastic one hanging about? Not a problem. Krylon makes a plastic fusion spray paint formulated to adhere to plastic.

I found three awesome video tutorials for DIY painted vases. Watch all 3 to see which idea will work the best for your personal preference. The first video has 3 different easy to do painting techniques.

Krylon also makes a mirror glass paint that will give the vase a mirror finish. With a vinegar spraying technique it can be made to look like silver mercury glass instead of a silver mirror. Watch this next DIY tutorial to earn how to do it.

In this last video tutorial she uses Plaid Delta PermEnamel Paint to paint her vases instead of spray painting with Krylon.

DIY Painted Glass Vases

 
Place a crystal candlestick on each side of the tree branch centerpiece arrangement. Sarah placed a dollar store tea light candle on top of each candlestick, but I would prefer white table candles.

I would then place silver votive and tea light candle holders staggered down the table from each candlestick and at each place setting.
 
This pair of crystal candlesticks by Godinger have been listed at an unbelievably low price!

Next, fill an apothecary jar with silver and pearl beads. Sarah, being a very budget conscious girl, used two thrift shop find glass pieces; an apothecary jar and a glass bowl with a silver-tone rim. She placed them on dollar store stands that she painted white. This is certainly a thrifty option!

You may already have the pieces you can use packed away in your own cupboards. If not, check out the thrift stores and the Dollar Tree Stores in your local area to see what you can find. A little paint and glue can do wonders!

Now, if your budget is extremely tight, it is perfectly fine to get a bowl at a local thrift shop like Sarah did and glue it to a pedestal that you can pick up from the local dollar store. Paint it white or with a Krylon Mirror Paint which will sparkle in the candlelight beautifully.

A Contemporary Silver and White
Table Setting

 

Silver Contemporary Charger Plates

The first step in layering our silver contemporary table setting is to start with a silver charger. Sarah used a ruffled edge silver charger set that she bought at a bargain price. I found a charger just like hers, unfortunately not at thrift store prices. It is still a really good buy and will be a wonderful first layer of your table setting.

Have a look at several more contemporary silver charger options I found in my search that you may like. If you already have a set of silver chargers in your cupboards, by all means, use them and don’t purchase something new unless you want a brand new contemporary design.
 

Mirror Charger Plates

Anyone can plop down a plain silver charger, but I think it takes a unique individual with an eye for design to use these silver mirror glass chargers. They will be a definite attention grabber in any place setting as they reflect the candlelight beautifully!

This elegant mirror chargers are made entirely out of mirror glass and will make a stunning statement on a contemporary silver themed table setting.

Keep in mind that the mirror charger is strictly a decorate table piece used to hold a dinner plate. Its purpose is to add decorative style to the dinner table. It is NOT meant for food use. Also, the manufactures recommend washing by hand only. I like to clean them with a glass spray and paper towels.

Most of us have at least one set of white china that we love to use when layering our table settings. This is the exact same set that Sarah used for her table setting on her silver and white tablescape.

I think the square white dinnerware set will also look awesome layered with a square silver charger and contrasting silver plates.

I am a big fan of the high quality of Lenox bone china and this new Opal Innocence pattern is gorgeous! The platinum rims and silver floral scrollwork pattern accented with pearls on the white china will be an amazing addition to our table and the perfect way to pamper our guest.

Sarah made her own silver satin napkins from a piece of fabric she already had on hand. If you like to sew and have the time to do so, have at it. Keep in mind that satin is no longer a cheap fabric to buy and you may end out spending more in time, energy, and money if choosing to sew them yourself.

This set of silver poly satin napkins are very affordable and will cost less to purchase than it will cost to sew them yourself. That is unless you already have the fabric on hand like Sarah did.

Sarah placed a large glittered snowflake on top of the folded silver napkin as the final touch to her place setting design. She picked them up at a dollar store.

For my guest, I would step it up a notch by placing a crystal snowflake Christmas ornament on each place setting napkin. The snowflake Christmas ornament will be a party favor for each guest to take home when they leave and hang on their own Christmas tree. It will be a momento that they can cherish for years.

I am so amazed at how beautifully these acrylic snowflakes reflect the lights and send sparkles all over the room as if they are real crystal. I have ordered both acrylic snowflakes and icicles in the past, and was so pleased with them I am ordering more this year. Your guest will feel special when they receive one to take home.

This is a pack of 24 pieces; 6 of each style. They can be used to decorate other places in the home if you’re not planning on 24 guests for dinner. They are really a great bargain for the quality of the acrylic pieces.

Crystal Platinum Banded Stemware

When having guest over for Christmas dinner, it is the time to get your very best crystal glasses out of storage and use them. USE them… often! Enjoy what you have and let other’s enjoy them too. That is what they are for!

If you haven’t yet started your crystal stemware collection, there isn’t a better time to start than now. Crystal, like silver, gets more expensive every year and vintage crystal sets are now worth a small fortune. During the holiday season, crystal stemware often goes on sale for the Christmas shopper so keep your eye out for the crystal stemware sales. In fact, the Vera Wang and the Lenox stemware featured below are on sale right now.

I prefer using platinum banded crystal stemware when setting a contemporary silver and white table. Even though they are actually a classic style glass, their clean lines have a modern look. Above are 4 selections you may want to have in your crystal goblet collection.

In my opinion, there is NOT enough candle light on this tablescape! I believe in placing as many candles as possible on the table to give it that magical festive Christmas feel.

They will make your guest feel welcomed by the warm glow cast by the candlelight. I have found it best to use unscented to prevent conflicts with the aromas of the food being served.

Elegant Silver Table Setting

Setting an Elegant Silver Table

Elegant Silver Christmas Tablescape Place Setting

To complete the silver tablescape we started HERE, we will finish the tablescape with an elegant silver table setting. Our tablescapes are all about layering, and the first layer after the tablecloth will be the silver placemats. They are the foundation on which we will be building each place setting.

I found several opulant, glittery, sparkly hand beaded placemat styles to make your elegant silver table settings shine, plus a platinum cotton damask by Lenox in a more subtle style.

I found a set just like the ones used in Betty’s photo at the top of the page. I bought them, but up close they looked so cheaply made (as if the silver paint would chip right off the plastic on the first washing) that I returned them and am not featuring them at all.

I don’t know about you, but I do not like using plastic for anything on a formal table. I prefer sterling silver, but not everyone can afford the high price of sterling silver these days. A silver plated charger will look just as elegant as a sterling silver charger at about a third of the cost.

Elegant Mirror Charger Plates

Mirror chargers are another option for a holiday tablescape with a silver theme. The mirror chargers will enhance the look of the finished table setting. Mirrors will reflect the light from the candles and the Cristmas tree lights (if there is one nearby) adding an iridescence to the reflections in the mirror.

I am a real big fan of Lenox china and feel that you can never have too many different Lenox fine china patterns as long as you have the room to store them when they are not in use.

Lenox has come out with a new pattern that is the very trendy burnished floral look in platinum that is so popular today. This china pattern can be layered with cut crystal plates like Bonnie has done in the photo or with the Lenox Platinum Banded Pattern.

Almost everyone has a stash of cut crystal or clear pressed glass salad/dessert plates in their collections. Often we get them as wedding gifts or we have picked them up inexpensively at thrift stores, antique shops, and garage sales.

Crystal glass plates and bowls are one of those “must have” standbys that work really well when layered with other china pattern pieces for just about any seasons table decor. If you are just starting out and haven’t gotten a set of them yet here are two different sets of moderately priced glass salad/dessert plates.

Note: Fine china, European glassware, and higher end serving ware should never be microwaved or put through a dishwasher. Unless a piece specifies that it is microwave and dishwasher safe, it IS NOT.

I think these next square glass salad/dessert plates will add another layer of interest to the table setting. I would use them as a contrasting layer when using a round dinner plate, but I think they will look fantastic when layered with a square dinner plate too.

Bonnie used pearl handled flatware in the creation of her Christmas table setting. The closest match I could find to Bonnie’s vintage set are these pearlized flatware sets. They are made in Italy and are very pretty sets indeed.

Sterling silver is the height of luxury on a formal table setting and I believe it is the best tableware possible to offer my guest when invited to an elegant Christmas dinner. Sterling silverware is very expensive to purchase when looking at a full service 66-piece set.

Often a couple will receive a 5-piece place setting for a service of 4 as a wedding gift. Then they can add pieces to the set over the years as they can afford them. This is how I completed my 1st set of Manchester sterling silverware, adding pieces as we could afford to do so.

This set of silverware is a simple, yet elegant streamlined Italian Barocco pattern which may be monogrammed at a later date if you choose to do so. Wallace silversmith is a well-known silverware company whose sterling silver products are expertly crafted here in the United States of America.

Christmas Holiday Cloth Napkins

For added decorative flair, next we need to set folded holiday cloth table napkins next to the place settings or on top the last layered plate with sparkling napkin rings. Setting neatly folded cloth napkins adds a touch of elegance to the formal dining table. Martha Stewart has some good ideas for folding napkings here on her webite.

Bonny used white Battenburg lace napkins, like the set featured next, with sparkling napkin rings on her brown and silver tablescape.

White napkins are fine, but intead of using white, I think for the table setting we are creating silver napkins are the better choice. I have found several wonderful silver examples for you to choose from to create your own tablesetting.

They are a high-quality, upscale napkin at an affordable price. The elegant platinum napkins are textured solid woven damask fabric and are perfectly suited to a silver themed table setting.

After either folding or rolling our pretty silver napkins, slip on a sparkling holiday inspired napkin ring for the last element of sparkle at the place setting.

The last thing we will add as a final layer to our silver table setting are some glittery silver snowflakes. Snowflakes with silver glitter will enhance the sparkle and glam of the table when a few are laid randomly on the table, nestled into the fresh evergreen boughs, and hung from the chandelier. The lights in the room will dance off the glitter filling the room with Christmas magical.

Silver and Crystal Tablescape

Elegant Silver and Crystal Christmas Tablescape

This silver and crystal tablescape setting for Christmas is a really easy one to recreate and can be done with any budget. Most of the centerpiece can be created with items from the Dollar Store in your local area if your budget is very limited.

If not so limited, we can run with this idea and recreate a gorgeous, elegant tablescape in silver, white and crystal.

There are 3 possible options laying out the tablescape foundation before placing the silver chargers as the first layer of the table setting.

1. The first thing I would do to create a similar, but more elegant setting would be with the use of a white tablecloth, or a pretty silver tablecloth. If working on a budget, the table will still have a simple, yet elegant feel.The white reflects the candlelight from the silver and crystal pieces (or glass as a substitute for the budget minded) being used on the table to heighten the glimmer and glam effect.

I absolutely love a white tablecloth and I think this beautiful White Damascus Tablecloth will be stunning with our silver Christmas winter tablescape theme. This wonderful tablecloth from Waterford (who is well known for its exquisite cut crystal) has an elegant, reversible tone on tone white damask weave giving it a silver sheen.

2. Place a mirror, or mirror tiles, down the center length of the table as the base for the tablescape. This is an ideal arrangement as the mirrors will again reflect the light off of the silver and crystal placed on it while giving an extra depth of glimmer.

I love the possibilities available with this beautiful bevel edge octagon mirror. Placed side by side down the length of the table it will make a fabulous statement as the base of the tablescape design. With a 12″ size it is large enough to be placed as a center octagon tile piece to hold an ornament filled bowl beautifully. Or four tiles can be placed in a diamond pattern at the center of the table. Play around with them on your table to see what works best for your setting.

3. Place a silver table runner down the center length of the table – Placing a glittery table runner is the second option for adding glam to our tablescape base.

This is a gorgeous table runner! It is a perfect background for a silver and crystal themed Christmas tablescape. It will bring a simple elegance and magical highlights to the dining table with its stunning silk jacquard fabric.

Silver Silk Jacquard Damask Table Runner

This silk jacquard damask table runner comes with a silver tassel attach at each end of the runner. The runner can be used by itself on a beautiful wood table or it can be placed on top of the white tablecloth to tie everything together.

When working with a tight budget, it is still possible to create a beautiful silver and crystal tablescape. If on a budget, most people will already have a crystal or an inexpensive glass bowl on hand to put in the center of the table and fill with beautiful silver Christmas ornaments which may already be packed away in your closet.

If not, thrift stores, Dollar Stores, discount stores and garage sales are great places to find the pieces you need for cheap.

Otherwise, I go for fabulous with a gorgeous, artistically designed, decorative bowl to create interest on my table.

I Have Hand Selected a Variety of Silver and Crystal Bowls
to Re-create a Better Version of this Tablescape.

The focal point of this tablescape is a crystal bowl on a pedestal filled with shiny mosaic silver Christmas ornaments and silver fruit. The base of the bowl is surround by white feather garland and silver fruit with a touch of greenery.

The bowl can hold anything sparkly and glittery such as silver ball ornaments, mercury glass birds, silver stars and silver seashells. It is entirely up to you. Finding the right vessel to hold these decorations is the key.

A plain glass bowl could be used if that is what your budget allows, but if you really want a fabulous table that pops I suggest you dress it up with a fabulous bowl as the major focal point.

All of the silver glitter floral pieces and ornaments can also be found at the Dollar Store. You can spray paint anything silver and add glitter if you wish to really make the table sparkle. The table will sparkle and shine from the glitter and no one will be the wiser.

I would add more sparkle around the candles and centerpiece with glittering silver and crystal garland, white feather boas, mercury glass ornaments and candle holders. Clear glass stones and sea glass can be strewn on the table and added to the centerpiece bowl for even more sparkle and shine. Drape silver and crystal bead garland around the candles and intertwine with the garland.

If you really want your tablescape to twinkle, glitter, and shine in the candlelight, draping strands of crystal garland around the Christmas tablescape is a fabulous way to do it. The garland can be positioned on the table by weaving it around the candles and votives; wrapping it around the stem of the decorative bowl; weaving a strand or two around the ornaments nestled in the bowl; draping it off the bowl in loops; and weaving it around any greenery or evergreen garland you have incorporated into the scenery.

I think they will give a glamorous, sparkly look grouped together in the centerpiece bowl. I would mix a selection of shiny silver ball ornaments, silver mosaic ornaments, matte silver ornaments, and glittery star ornaments.

This Christmas tree figurine has been used in many of the tablescapes featured on this site because it is amazingly beautiful. It looks like crystal and reflects light like crystal and you won’t realize it is not crystal until you actually touch it. It is a fabulous piece to use on our silver and crystal tablescape.

This table is not set with candles, but a Christmas table must have candles, the more the better! I would use two or more crystal candlestick holders of different heights to anchor each end of the table. Then I would use smaller votive and LED tea candles spread randomly throughout the table.

If there is room for a few tapers on each side of the focal point centerpiece, I would add them too. Mercury glass vases with fresh cut flowers or greenery can be also be added to the mix.

Waterford does make the most beautiful crystal pieces and the
Lismore Collection is just one of their fabulous lines.

I can just see the sparkles dancing on the walls as the light reflects off of this gorgeous Crystal Lotus Pillar Candle Holder piece. I can almost see all of the faceted cuts that make this crystal candle holder so beautiful, but the photo does not do it justice. A couple of these on a silver and crystal tablescape will look stunning for any occasion. The candle is included.

If crystal table pieces are not within your budget use cut glass and silver mercury glass instead. They are not only beautiful, they are much more affordable. Better yet – mix it up and use a little of each. The candlelight will reflect off the crystal or glass turning the dining room into a magical space full of warmth.

I like to put one votive candle next to each guest place setting, and then I like to fill in empty gaps on the table with smaller tea lights. These silver mercury glass votive holder cups will work perfectly for that purpose while adding old world elegance to our Christmas table. The oval jewel design on each one will look stunning with the candlelight.

These Vintage Style Glam Silver Mercury Glass Candle Holders should be placed about the table in a random order and used for both tea lights and little flower vases.

How Do I Layer a Place Setting?

Start with a white linen table cloth as the first layer on the table. Next add silver chargers for each guest at each place setting. On top of the charger add a white dinner plate with platinum band rims. Keeping with our silver and crystal theme, I would use a crystal salad plate as the next layer with a soup bowl topping the layer stack. A place card for the guest can be placed in the soup bowl or on the table to the top right of the dinner plate.

Silver and Gray Glass Beaded Sunburst Placemats

Silver hand beaded placemats can be used instead of, or placed under, silver charger plates.

All of the gorgeous bead work on these placemats are done by hand. They will look stunning on a silver and crystal themed table.

Normally, for a silver themed tablescape, I would use round silver metal chargers for my place settings, but I found this fabulous square mosaic silver charger that I think is a perfect change when looking for a more contemporary feel to this tablescape! It is a perfect match for the silver mosaic disco-style ball Christmas ornaments.

Whichever charger you chose to use, the second layer, placed upon the silver charger, will be the dinner plate. This should either be fine white china, like this Kilbarry, with a silver banded rim or a clear cut crystal plate (glass for the budget minded).

Fabulous items to use for place card holders are a silver bird, a silver Christmas bell, a silver star, a pine cone spray painted silver or a silver pear.

Pine cones and pears are the two easiest items to use as place card holder which you can make yourself. Just spray paint the pine cones, or craft store pears silver. If using a pine cone glue a ribbon (with their name written on it) to the underside of the pine cone and glue a few silver beads within the pine cone gaps on the top.

If using a pear, write the guest name on card stock and cut it out in the shape of a pear leaf. Attach the leaf to the pear with a crystal or pearl head florist pin. Finish it off by adding a silver magnolia leaf, a sprig of sugared rosemary or pine and a sprig of winter berry and place the pine cone or pear next to this pretty fresh garnish.
