RL Entertaining: Christmas Table Settings (Part 3)

Pair white with a little gold for a one-of-a-kind Christmas celebration


A little gold can make a huge impact and a huge difference in any table setting. You may choose to pair white with gold when you set the table this Christmas. A table set in all white maybe a bit boring so a touch of color is a surefire way to elevate the look from plain to chic.

What you'll need:
  • White table cloth (may have gold stitching)
  • White dinnerware (preferably with  a touch of gold)
  • Gold flatware
  • Pine cones or other wooden ornaments
  • White and gold spray paint
  • White place cards
  • Gold marker 
How to do it:


  1. Set the table as you would using the white and gold theme
  2. Spray paint pine cones or wooden ornaments in white and gold. Let dry before placing on the table. Arrange ornaments at the center of the table. 
  3. Write the names of each guest on a place card using a gold marker.

RL Tip: You can attach small gold ornaments to the place cards.
