Silver + Gold Tablescape

November 1, 2012

I was asked by Wayfair to partake in their Holiday Tablescape Challenge and I was happy to be one of the many bloggers setting pretty tables this year as part of their campaign.   I’ve always loved mixing metallic finishes especially during the holidays, so I did on this table too, inspired by a fresh geometric fabric I found which combines gold and silver together.

I set a table with versatile place settings that will work for several holidays from a Thanksgiving feast to a New Year’s Day brunch.

For Thanksgiving, simply swap out the glittery tree in the middle for a bowl of pumpkins instead.

Here are a few more shots of the table with the complimentary Wayfair products I received for this tablescape listed below.

    Love the napkin rings. Where are they from?

  16. You had me at “mixing the metallics.” Your tablescape is just beautiful and would be perfect for a Christmas gathering or for New Year’s.

    Now I’m singing with Burl Ives: “Silver and gold, silver and gold, everyone wishes for silver and gold. . . “

  20. Debra says:

    Beautiful – but I always learned that the knife should be facing the plate in a proper table setting….

    The napkins and plates are really pretty and I’m drawn to the gold shimmer tree! I adore the tablecloth too. Okay, it’s all lovely! I am a big fan of silver and gold. When done carefully they pull of the most stunning, classy look. I’ve had my eye on silver and gold this season for sure!

    I love everything about this table setting. It has a nice shimmer although I would have liked to see gold flatware though. BTW I always get the knife wrong in a place setting too.

  31. Vel says:
