Taking its cue from the icy blue on the wall, this subtle holiday table is done all in whites and silvers with touches of yet more chilly blue.
Linens are laid on lavishly with two tablecloths of slightly contrasting textures. Slipcovers transform plain chairs into elegant seating.
A huge silver vase is filled with hydrangeas, roses, and glass ornaments in matte gold. (Look for ornaments on wires in a craft store, or simply twist some florist's wire to the ornament loops and insert them into the foam in the vase.)
Dust off silver pieces to use with smaller accent flower arrangements. If you don't have enough silver then create an inexpensive look-alike by spray-painting metal or glass cups with chrome-look paint.
