1. Simple white on white with a pop of metallic: Create a winter wonderland theme for your next holiday dinner party with elegant whites and pops of metallic that will have you embracing the winter snow. Cover your table with a white satin table cloth and stack white ceramic plates on top of each other. Top the plate setting with mini gift boxes with a silver ribbon tied to it with little treats for your guests. Accessorize with pinecones spray painted in frosty silver sprinkled across the table. Place silver ornaments in a glass apothecary vase for a simple yet striking center piece.
2. Glamorous forest theme: Switch up your traditional white plates and adorn your wooden farmhouse table with gold metallic leaf-shaped dishes for a festive forest theme. The metallic gold hues mixed with the natural grain and dark walnut stain of the wooden table create a warm and inviting space for guests to wind down and enjoy a glass of wine. Decorate with reclaimed wood barks and wood slices for a natural rustic feel.

3. Punch of plaid: Add some print to your table setting with a bright red plaid cloth laid out on your table. This fall fashion trend can also be incorporated into your décor design for the holidays for a festive cottage look. Complete the table setting with burlap placemats to highlight your fancy silverwares and garnish the center of your table with green leaf garlands for a burst of green. Use wooden benches instead to create additional seating perfect for a casual family-style dinner.
4. Traditional Christmas china with a modern twist: Update your Christmas china with modern patterns such as chevron and ikat for a blend of traditional and modern. Try a bold chevron pattern in burgundy for your placemats or a teal ikat napkin folded on top of the plate. Stick to the same colour tones as your chinaware for a more uniformed and monochromatic look. Complete your festive setting with gold utensils for an elegant finish.
