Creating a beautiful tablescape is my favorite holiday to-do and I am so excited to finally share this Elegant Gold and Silver Christmas Tablescape today as a part of the Loveliest Looks of Christmas Home Tour.  There are links to everyone’s tour at the bottom of the post.

Juliska Isadora Round Placemat / Juliska Firenze Charger / Juliska Puro Platinum Dinner Plate (currently 25% off) / Juliska Firenze Salad Plate / Dogwood Hill Designs Napkins / Juliska Metallic Bead Bouquet Napkin Ring / Large Mercury Glass Tree / Medium Mercury Glass Tree / Small Mercury Glass Tree / London Glass Hurricane / Grand Baroque Sterling Silver Flatware

There are so many beautiful details it’s hard to decide where to start. The inspiration for this table began with Juliska’s Firenze pattern in gold and silver. I have long admired this beautiful pattern. The movement of the design and the shimmer of the metallic details are gorgeous. This colorway of this special pattern comes in chargers and salad plates. The dinner plates are Juliska’s new Puro Platinum pattern Dinner Plates.  They are currently 25% off until December 7.  This beautiful pattern is a great cross over look with fine china but is more substantial and is dishwasher safe!  The wine glasses are Juliska’s Amalia pattern and also currently 25% off.

The perfect accent for this place setting are the beautiful custom napkins with silver embroidery from Dogwood Hill Designs with the finishing touch of the gold and silver Juliska napkin rings. I have known the owner Mia Davis for many years and love her gorgeous embroidery.  You’ve seen her cocktail napkins in my Fall Outdoor Tablescape and Gin Trolley posts.  Be sure and order now for Christmas.  The deadline is December 9!

I love mixing favorite pieces from my Christmas decor collection to create centerpieces. This year, I’ve chosen the beautiful mercury glass trees. As I shared with you in the Holiday Decor Shop I love collecting mercury glass. The shimmery silver glass mixes well with any color you choose to use for Christmas. I’ve used three sizes and staggered them down the table while making sure not to block anyone’s view.

The centerpiece features a true staple in my party closet with the large glass hurricane. You’ve seen this versatile glass piece on tablescapes here and here and also a pair on my mantle here and here. To create this centerpiece, I added a small cylinder vase to the center filled with water and then carefully placed tiny gold, silver and iridescent glass ornaments from the craft store that match my Christmas tree.  I topped these with Dendrobium orchid’s that I ordered from the florist.  It would be equally beautiful with white hydrangea and a mix of other white flowers.

One of the main reasons I chose a gold and silver tablescape this year is the opportunity to encourage us all to use our “good silver” and to honor my mother-in-law who recently passed away.  She was the one who made sure we received all our Sterling Silver placesettings and gifted them to me each Christmas and birthday for the first few years we were married.  She also gave the girls and me her amazing collection of Sterling Silver including the gorgeous candlesticks and tea service.   I treasure all of these gifts from her.

I love dressing for the Christmas and all the parties and events. I am looking forward to wearing this soft gold sweater dress from Lilly Pulitzer to Christmas parties and throughout the winter season. The lurex thread add the perfect amount of shimmer to this balloon sleeved easy silhouette. It fits true to size and I am wearing an XS.  I love this gold brocade dress from the Holiday Playlist post as well.  You can see more Holiday Styles in my Holiday Style Shop and How to Wear Jeans to A Holiday Party, a reader favorite!

A little bit different than years past, I am saving our Christmas tree to be decorated when my oldest daughter comes home on December 12 for Christmas break for her freshman year. However, you can see my full Christmas home tour here and here. This year taking a cue from the tablescape the highlight colors will be gold and silver.  You can see a round up of those ornaments and ribbon in the Decor and Gift Wrap Shop as well as all the wrapping paper from the Gift Guide photos below.

Music always helps to set the tone for a gathering and I hope you’ll download the Alicia Wood Lifestyle x Jackopierce Holiday Playlist to be the soundtrack for the holidays.

I hope this Elegant Gold and Silver Tablescape has inspired you to use your “good silver” and create a special tablescape for your friends and family.  It is always my desire to give you ideas that you can easily recreate.  Be sure to visit each of my darling friends and their homes below.

    All the details in this beautiful, elegant and stunning tablescape! I absolutely love it! I love how you incorporated the gold and the silver. My home is decorated with gold and silver and there is something magical about mixing these two metals. I am sorry about the passing of your Mother-in-law and I love how you are honoring her. That is a great idea that she gifted you those special gifts when you first got married. This is a great idea that when my daughters start to marry, I will do the same to them and gift them these precious gifts. Your style and fashion is sophisticated and timeless. I love the inspiration that you give to all of us.
