     Holiday Tablescape Ideas


Above: The table has been set for a holiday meal with eight guests.  For this function the food serving dishes and platters have been placed on the side buffet, (not pictured), and the guests can serve themselves as they choose.


4 white candles
4 glass taper candleholders
1 black rectangular tablecloth
8 colored napkins
8 napkin rings
decorative jewels
salt and pepper shakers
flower vases

China, Stemware, Barware and Flatware
8 square white china dinner plates
8 salad forks
8 dinner forks
8 table knives
8 teaspoons
8 stemmed water goblets
8 aperitif glasses

8 small white plates

Four colors of napkins have been used, red, orange, blue and green.  The cordial glasses at each place setting match
the napkin colors.  The rest of each place setting features a white square dinner plate, water glass, salad and dinner forks,
table knife and spoon.  Small white square plates have been placed at the upper left of each dinner plate to be used
as a butter plate.  The napkin rings are black leather over stainless steel and work well with the black tablecloth.

To create interest at the center of the table, 3 colored vases have been filled with a flower and/or other greenery picked
from the garden.  Small salt and pepper shakers are also placed around the table.  A smattering of acrylic jewels has
been strewn along the center of the table to add more sparkle.

Four clear crystal candle holders have been outfitted with basic white taper candles and placed along the center of the
table alternating with the flower vases.

This simple yet striking table design sets a festive holiday mood without being too formal.  The white plates will allow
the colorful food to be the star.
