Candlelight Supper: Black & Gold Plaid Christmas Tablescape

Black & Gold Plaid Christmas Tablescape

Plaid is still such a trend again this year.  I wanted to do something a little different after I found these gold and black plates at Homegoods this year.  I combined the plaid with polka dots, stripes, and lots of textures.

I am using a mirror frame to anchor the centerpiece.  I think a tray, mirror, platter, or another container makes it so much easier to contain a centerpiece.  My frame is a very heavy metal frame.  It was a mirror from Pottery Barn.  The original price marked on it was $300.00.  The glass had a big crack so they had a price tag of $10.00.  I felt it was a great price.  Purchased at a PB/WS outlet tent sale.  It is the original color.

            Little desserts with a sparkle of edible gold glitter on them.

                            A deeply rich golden dinner plate.

     Gold flatware has a lot of texture that blends with all the texture in the plate stack.

My favorite prize for every Christmas guest.  A fun Christmas Cracker/popper.  Having scalloped edges on them to match the scallops on the golden dinner plate.

I love your comments.  Feel free to leave one, they are much appreciated.  Thank you.

What a great idea to use a mirror for a platter! That frame is just stunning! I love the black and gold. It is so fun and dramatic. I always like to use an usual color combination - or less traditional, I guess! Hope you are ready and have a wonderful Christmas. said...

Gorgeous Valerie! Gold and black is so elegant, perfect for New Years too- the mirror platter is a real wow factor!

This is so elegant and gorgeous! Love the platter/mirror! I bet they wondered what you would do with a mirror with a big crack in it;) Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, Valerie!

This is so glitzy and festive! Your centerpiece is stunning! I love the idea of crackers, but a few years ago i had them for 12 people and it was so messy....I found confetti everywhere for days!!

This is a different take on a Christmas table and I do like it, especially the polka dots.
