A WINTER WHITE AND SILVER HOLIDAY TABLESCAPE

Welcome to the Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate & Decorate. I’m thrilled to have you join me today and I’m so happy to be a part of this tour! This is my second tablescape/entertaining tour that I’m a part of this week. If you’re new to CitrineLiving, welcome, I’m so happy you’re here. If you’re a regular reader, then you know how much I love to create tablescapes that are interesting, somewhat ‘out of the box’ and personal. I shared a fabulous red, white gold and table this past Tuesday, which I know you’ll love – you can read all about it here. Today I’ll be showing you a winter white and silver holiday tablescape – a more subdued and elegant approach to Christmas. What I love about this table is that you can use this theme for New Year’s as well, since it’s neutral and more ‘Winter focused’.dining-room-black-walls-white-tabescape-holidayI recently updated this room, which was previously layered with pattern, color and texture. I wanted a neutral space to be able to create tables that wouldn’t compete with the surroundings and to brighten up the room as much as possible. Have a look at our updated dining room herechandelier-lantern-crystal-christmas-tablescape-holidayThe idea behind this table was a glistening winter wonderland, using reindeer, snowy trees, snowflakes and metallics to create a cool and crisp scene in our dining room.holiday-christmas-tablescape-white-silverUsing a cake stand as the focus of the table, I layered it with a crystal beaded candle holder surrounded by silver and pearl ornaments. Flanked with some of my crystal and mercury glass candlesticks, which then lead over to a forest-inspired grouping with my beloved white reindeer, snowy trees as well as more candles and ornaments.
white-cakestand-silver-christmas-ornaments-centerpiece-tablescapeI often layer table runners crosswise for a tailored look. Here, I actually used napkins to create the bottom layer. They’re a nice large size, which covers the table well and I made sure to lay them as close together as possible to hide the table from showing through the center.holiday-tablescape-silver-whitewhite-cakestand-silver-ornaments-christmas-tablescapewhite-christmas-tablescapeI love to loosely place decorations on the center runner, however notice when you look at the full table, that there is still symmetry happening, which keeps it contained and gives everything a sense of place.christmas-ornament-white-silver3white-silver-christmas-ornamentchristmas-ornament-white-silverI really love this ornament, can you tell? I couldn’t choose a favorite shot to share so I’ve used them all.. haha ;)christmas-ornament-white-silver2More trees and ornaments are displayed atop the side cabinets to reinforce my wonderland theme even further.

Don’t be afraid of mixing different types together, you may be very pleasantly surprised with the results.white-silver-christmas-holiday-decor3mercury-glass-ornament white-silver-christmas-holiday-decor2 white-silver-christmas-holiday-decor4The crystals on the chandelier catch the late rays of sunlight here so beautifully as well, don’t you think?

I love the juxtapostion of all that texture against the more streamlined place settings.A WINTER WHITE AND SILVER HOLIDAY TABLESCAPE Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed your stay and found some inspiration for this holiday season!

    I feel like I just opened a high-end magazine when I feast my eyes on your silver and winter wonderland table. Your photography and styling is as beautiful as your decor. I’m lovin’ the last overhead shot and those of the crystals of your fixture sparkling above the table!

    Tamara, your tabelscape is beautiful! I really love how you spread the cloths for your foundation on the table, leaving the wood somewhat exposed. I am one who favors wood and letting it shine. The sheerness of the use of the napkins really amps up the glam factor, in my opinion. A beautifully set table with the crystal, silver and white. Happy holidays!
