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.
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
