Now that our dining room makeover is complete, I was excited to dress it up for the holidays! This years decor theme for the room is silver and gold with crisp white and greenery.
What I love about these Christmas dinner tablesetting ideas are that they create the look of a fancy table but are rather easy to put together without a lot of fuss. In lieu of a tablecloth this year I chose these fun Cedar Branch placemats from Pier 1. They look so pretty real and give a natural, woodsy vibe to the table.
Gold flatwear is all the rage this year. I remember when it was a big trend back in the early 90’s. This particular stainless steel flatware set is from Target. Believe it or not but I don’t own any formal china. Maybe someday I will but I’ve gotten away without needing any for nearly 25 years of marriage. I like to dress up my basic white everyday plates with fancier salad plates. These pretty little gold scripted holiday plates are from Pier 1.
Cut crystal glasses add so much sparkle and shine to a table. These were an amazing thrift store find. But I bet most of you are wondering about the Christmas Tree Napkins! Aren’t they adorable? They are so easy to fold.

The holiday centerpiece was quick and easy to put together. It is a marble and gold platter with two porcelain reindeer I’ve had for years and a scattering of ornaments. Little dollar store votives and white camellias cut from our yard surround the centerpiece. They start blooming in October and bloom all through December. The bushes are loaded an are simply gorgeous!
Again, with keeping the decor simple, I filled a sleigh with ornaments and hot glued evergreen sprigs to form rings which slid over the candle pillars.
My favorite addition to the Christmas decor this year is the magnolia wreath and some magnolia swags. Magnolia trees grow everywhere here in the south. I’m hoping to one day plant a magnolia tree in our yard so that I don’t have to raid our neighbors tree!
The magnolia swags were draped across the windows. Here’s an easy tip: Use zip ties to hold the middle of the swag to the window hardware to create the double draping.
