Elegant White and Gold Tablescape

After all the red hubbub of Valentine’s Day, my soul was crying out for some calmness and rest for my eyes.


The elegant white and gold tablescape was born.


The classic stoneware pieces are upgraded by lavish use of crystal and metallic accents — Grandma’s silver does its job again!

IMG_7234BThe key to an all white tablescape is texture and layering. Embossed detail creates interest on the dishes, golden embroidery on the placemats is mimicked on the wired ribbon accent, and the tablecloth, napkins, French scarf, and the bread warmer add lacy textures.

  1. It is very elegant! Those jam pots and the butter dish are “swoon” material – gorgeous. Love the way you added the touch of gold to all of the white.

    • Diane, thanks for visiting! I recently went through all my “stuff” and sorted it out by style and color, and then stored it that way. I was surprised to find that I had three crystal jam pots, because I didn’t buy any of them. They must have been a favorite of my mother-in-law. We’ve discovered a wonderful new set of jams made locally, so I can actually use these beauties.

  2. You are so right about all-white tables needing texture — and shine! Your table is gorgeous and so serene! The white tulips are perfect to carry out the calm, elegant look.
