Festive dining in style with colour co-ordinated gold & cream
For a luxurious look Gold and Cream make a wining colour combination which oozes chic styling when you get the look right, however, be careful or you could turn your festive table into cheap and trashy which isn't the look that's bang on-trend this festive season. Renowned for denoting luxury and wealth gold adds a gorgeous sparkle to your dining table, team it with creams and ivories and your table will look fabulous without being trashy.
Freshly laundered cream table linen makes a great basis on which to set your table. On-trend table runners will also add a modern touch and if you use a cream table runner in faux silk you'll be adding another sign of wealth and style along, with a soft touch and appearance which provides its own shimmering surface. Marrying gold and cream is relatively easy, the choice of which is the more dominant is a matter of personal taste – if you love the opulence of gold then its that which should take centre stage while the cream sits quietly and comfortably in the background.
You can add a variety of different decorations to get the look you're after; keep it simple and use the warm golden colours of nature to inspire a hand-crafted centrepiece made from foliage and berries with accompanying subtle touches of berries sprinkled onto your table runner. Alternatively go full on and have gold coloured baubles, gold Christmas confetti and tinsel glistening down the length of your table.
Tie tinsel around your napkins to add to the glitz and glamour. Make sure that your glasses, dinner service and cutlery are sparkling clean and set precisely, individualised place names and co-ordinated napkin rings will provide all the finishing touches you need to make your festive dining table glisten with the opulence of gold.
