Ruby Red and Glittering Gold - Adding Color to Your Holiday Table

By H. Iacobacci-Miller

‘Tis the Season for entertaining. Spice up your gatherings with brilliant colors this season.

Glittering gold emits elegance. Set your table with gold, beaded placemats or gold charger plates. Paired with simple white dishes, this combination is sophisticated without being too showy.

Tie a cream colored rose around your napkins in place of napkin rings. Create a centerpiece with the same cream-colored roses mounding in a gold bowl. Don’t forget candles. Creamy votive candles sprinkled around the table will give your table a soft, warm glow.

 

If you’re looking to add a real punch to your table this holiday season, think red. Ruby red signifies Christmas and reminds us of good old Saint Nick’s attire.

A vibrant red will add cheer and excitement to your holiday table. Decorate your table with red glass vases filled with white poinsettias. For ambiance, use candle holders with red accents and top with rich red candles. Don’t go overboard! Use a textured, red table runner rather than a full tablecloth. To break up the red, use white dishes topped with deep red, linen napkins.

Whether red or gold, these colors will add pizzazz to any holiday table.
