Shimmer and Shine Tablescapes Idea

Shimmer and Shine Tablescape Idea:

When it comes to holiday parties, creating a fabulous and festive tablescape is just as important as decorating the tree. Here is a shimmering and shining tablescape idea from .

Use mirrors as your base to reflect sparkly gold and silver objects for a truly elegant display that can last right through New Year's. 

First, create a table runner by placing several small, unframed square mirrors down the center of your table.
Place two or three silver, gold and/or glass pillar candle holders (you can also spray paint ones you have) on top of the mirrors.
Top them with 9" gold pillar candles or mix it up and use the gold candle holders with silver candles.

Gather lots of silver and gold holiday-themed objects like clusters of jingle bells and shorter metallic votives and scatter them between the candle holders and down the runner.

For a sparkly touch of nature, gather pinecones from your yard (or the craft store). Brush on some craft glue and roll the pinecones in glitter. Once dry, place a few of those down your runner as well.

Wow!! Superb ideas. The idea of using mirror at base is superb and unique too. Got great ideas from here to decorate tables, and now I am going to use these ideas in decorating table at New York venues where my brother’s reception party will be held.
