Elegant Christmas Table Setting

Find decorating inspiration for your holiday dinning table, with a green and gold color theme. This table setting is traditional and elegant and could even be used for Thanksgiving or a fancy St. Patrick’s day dinner party.

Green & Gold Holiday Table

I love the combination of green and gold because I think it’s a bit unexpected. I mean we see gold paired with pink, black, white, etc., but the green is unique.

It’s elegant for the holidays and would fit into a multitude of styles. I’ve always considered green a neutral color since it’s the color of nature.

Create a centerpiece runner with foraged evergreen clippings, some magnolia leaves from the floral shop, gold candlesticks, and Christmas ornaments. I love the golden underside of the magnolia leaves. They fit so naturally into this color scheme.

Layer modern gold-trimmed dishes with vintage green glass salad plates. Nothing looks better on a table than layers of dishes!

Add details to the table, like vintage salt cellars at each place setting, filled with sea salt and black pepper. I just love adding vintage touches to a modern table setting.

Paper place mats take the place of a tablecloth and provide a pretty gold and white base for each place setting.

Match dining room décor to the table with a long evergreen runner and lots of ball ornaments tucked in. Fill jars and bowls with more ornaments in various sizes.

Use small vintage plates as wine coasters to place bottles of wine at each end of the table. Bonus points if your wine bottle matches the theme!

This Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is delicious with a holiday meal and looks so pretty on the table.

PARTY TIP: Use dishes and serving pieces in unexpected ways. For example, use small appetizer plates or saucers as wine bottle coasters. Or, serve champagne party punch from a soup tureen.

  2. This tablescape is quite lovely, but sassy and sparkly at the same time. I love the green and gold combo. I may have to try that next year–already decorated my dining room this year.
    I’m also intrigued by the paper placemats. Will you share your source for them? Always enjoy your tablescapes.

    1. Thank you Linda! The placemats are from Hester & Cook. I just love their kitchen papers collection.
