Simple Holiday Table Setting in Pine and Gold

This simple holiday table setting combines lots of greenery with pops of gold and copper for an easy but elegant table perfect for everything from a holiday dinner party to Christmas Eve.

I always love entertaining, but there’s something really special about hosting during the holiday season. Everything feels extra festive at this time of year and I love to create a table setting that honors that!

However, though I want it to be beautiful, I also want it to be simple. Because who needs to be creating a complicated tablescape when everything else is so busy? Between decorating, shopping, parties, sending cards, and more, the season can be pretty hectic!

So this table combines lots of simple greenery with pops of caramel and gold for that extra bling the season deserves, while still feeling simple, calm, and beautiful.

The centerpiece consists of a glass hurricane surrounded by fresh pine, cedar and eucalyptus clippings layered over a rustic linen runner.

I also added some gold votives along with some gold and coppery ornaments for some added sparkle. I mean, the season calls for a little sparkle doesn’t it?!

Gold flatware is one of my favorite things, and it works especially well during the fall and winter months. I love the way it warms up the table!

I layered my favorite white dinner plates over a rustic gold charger.

Little wreath napkin rings surround my favorite linen napkins, along with a glittery pinecone ornament. I didn’t use place cards this time, but you could easily tie them to the napkin rings along with the tiny pinecone. And if you can’t find a tiny pinecone, use any small ornament. These mini mercury glass ornaments would look adorable!

The sideboard is standing by with wine and extra glasses. I also use it to serve, or to store dishes while we’re eating.

  1. Hi Sheila – Just beautiful! Would you please provide the details on your dining room table. It’s so handsome. Thanks … always enjoy visiting your site. CB

    1. Hi Carol! Thanks so much for your kind words! My exact dining room table is unavailable but I’ve linked 2 in the post that are very similar (and less expensive!) You can find them at the bottom of the post. You can also shop my dining room in the “Shop my Home” portion of the blog, linked here:

      Hope that helps!


  2. This is beautiful as usual. Thank you for all the time you put into sharing your talents and your home with all of us. You help us to make our homes more beautiful. I am grateful for your help! May I ask where you got the glittery pinecones from? They steal the show. I searched all over the web before asking you !
    Thank you and, Merry Blessed Christmas to you Sheila and your family!

    1. Aww thank you Rose! That is such a lovely compliment – you truly made my day! Those little ornaments are a few years old and were probably found at some place like Home Goods (they came in a box of 8). Believe me, I also looked and looked online for something similar to link for you! I did source a couple of little pinecone ornaments they are just not as ‘glittery’! Sorry about that. But I think the table would be equally cute with ANY small ornament (even a small ball)!

      Merry Christmas to you too and thanks for stopping by!


  3. Just beautiful as usual. Thank you for all the time you put into sharing your home with many of us. You have helped us all so much to make our homes more beautiful . So the million dollar question of the day is? The tiny glittery pine cones steal the win! Where May I ask did you find them? I always search the web before getting the courage to ask, but I cannot find them.
    Merry Blessed Christmas to you Sheila! And to your whole family!

  4. That is a beautiful table setting. I especially like your new white dishes. Good choice!
