White Christmas Tablescapes
Winter white reminds me of the clean serenity of a blanket of freshly fallen snow in the woods. It looks so beautiful and pure with a sense of peace. The key to creating an all-white table top landscape that’s not flat or sterile is to layer different shades of white, ivory, cream, icy blues and pale grays along with a mix of textures and metallic accents.
The magic comes when the shiny metallic ornaments, lots of candles, lots of glitter and sparkle plus beautiful flatware in silver, gold or copper are added to the table.
Contemporary settings can be created by mixing sleek lines in white with the hottest color of the season such as aqua, purple, neon greens or black. It is a modern trend that is very popular this season.
It gives a clean minimalist look with a small burst of color and bits of natural elements such as bare tree branches or pears mixed it. Often the natural elements will be spray painted in the theme color with metallic gold, silver or copper paint and added in for industrial contrast.
Using white in a shabby chic setting or an antique Victorian Christmas Tablescape is a style which has been popular for at least 10 years and is still just as hot today. Use mercury glass, star and ball ornaments covered in glitter, homemade ornaments made of lace and sheet music and natural elements such as pine boughs and pine cones painted white and flocked with white or silver glitter.
My personal favorite is shabby chic mixed with coastal, using old worn elements of yesterday to remind me of a beach house weathered by the sea salt and the wind. I like mixing seashells with mercury glass, sea glass and shiny Christmas ornaments surrounding by lots of candles in crystal candle holders. I like setting the table using my Lenox fine china with platinum rimmed bands, silver flatware, and crystal stemware.
Adding lots of candles, silver, crystal, glitter and sequins are all elements which should be incorporated with white table top decorations for the light to reflect off. They give the table its magical sparkle which is such a huge part of Christmas. White flowers, white tablecloths, and white napkins should be used to give the table an elegant snowy, wintry feel that sparkles and shines with the icy crystals of the decor as they dance in candlelight.
