    • Glamorous Holiday Gala

      An elegant affair with lots of shimmer and sparkle is the perfect excuse to break out the good china.

    • Shiny Place Setting

      Creative touches make this party look expensive -- but are super cheap. Instead of purchasing a pricey metallic table runner, use an inexpensive silver curtain panel.

    • Classy Chargers

      Don't worry if you don't have china to match the theme. Casual white plates will work just fine. Just make sure to use gold or silver chargers beneath each place setting.

    • Special Occasion

      Ornamental china with hints of silver and gold set the scene for a swanky holiday soiree. Create your own decorative plates by adorning glittering rhinestones to plain plates.

    • The Right Touch

      Simple white napkins pop with a matte silver napkin holder.

    • Silver Lining

      Choose clear glasses and goblets with a hint of shimmer, such as this fancy, silver-rimmed glass.

    • Go for the Gold

      Line buffets and drink displays with decorative metallic garlands and metallic votive candleholders.

      Tip: Dust bowls of pinecones or modern potpourri decorative balls with gold glitter for some extra decoration.

    • Snazzy Centerpiece

      A quick trip down the holiday decorating aisle is all you'll need to create a chic centerpiece. Here, we used two, 12-inch ornament stands, small ball ornaments (in both matte and shiny gold), silver and gold garland, and a few votive candle holders with a gold foil finish.

    • Pretty Detail

      If you're using assigned seating, look for silver and gold ball ornament place card holders to match your shimmering centerpiece.
