Going all white can really make a big impression. It’s a simple but very elegant way to dress the holiday table and puts the focus on your feast! It’s also a good way to save money, since a white tablecloth and napkins will work as a great base for your table all year.
HOW TO: Start with all white linens and white (or cream) dishes, then add a special touch and festive feel by embellishing each place setting. To stay consistent with the monochromatic look of the table when doing this, stick to natural colors or metallic, like silver or gold. Decorate plain white napkins by tying them with ribbon or using a pinecone. Another very simple way to create a special place setting is to decorate each plate with a small Christmas card (with a personal message to each guest) or small gift (like an ornament) wrapped in gold or silver paper with a pretty bow. For the centerpiece, use candlesticks in varying heights with white, silver or gold candles. Then scatter a few pinecones or gold and silver Christmas balls at the base of the candlesticks. This will create a magazine-worthy look for your holiday table and make your guests feel special!
