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!
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.
I hope this simple Christmas table setting provides some inspiration for your own holiday entertaining! It’s both easy and elegant, and could work for any December event you’re hosting.
By simply adding greenery and ornaments along with some candles, you can create a table setting that’s simple but still makes the night feel special!
