White China Place Settings for the Holidays

Basic white china is a versatile must-have for your holiday table. Check out these tips to jazz up your "little white plate" for every holiday, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year's Eve.

Autumn Elegance

Warm up a Thanksgiving table with amber hues. Golden plates and a gilded pear attached to a place card are perfect table toppers for an inviting feast.

Exquisite Touches

Candles and roses are perfect elegant touches for your holiday table. Roses look majestic in low bowls with amber-colored water. Wrap candles in cinnamon sticks to enjoy a splendid autumn aroma.

Christmas Whimsy

Spice up your traditional red and green with a polka-dot salad plate. Add playfulness by wrapping a lime-green ribbon around crisp white linen. Top with a licorice stick and red Christmas bulb.

A Sweet Christmas Table

Sweeten your Christmas table with candy. Place flowers in a small vase and then put inside a larger vase. Pour cinnamon candies between the two vases to create a fun holiday look.

Hanukkah Charm

Freshen up this holiday's classic colors with a silver charger, cobalt salad plate, blue-bowl goblet, and crystal bowls full of tulips. Create some razzle-dazzle with a beaded napkin ring.

Pretty Hanukkah Party Favor

This mini-picture-frame place card is a pretty and practical party favor. Create the Star of David by overlapping triangles of organza ribbon.

New Year's Glamour

For a tabletop as glamorous as New Year's should be, layer a white plate on top of a gold charger and a black beaded mat. White linen goes glam when paired with a black organza napkin and slipped through a rhinestone bracelet.

Luxurious Table Toppers

Guests will toast your beautiful holiday table when you use these luxurious table decorations. Attach costume jewelry to gold-rimmed goblets and place single gardenia flowers in small silver cups for a beautiful and elegant affair.
