Embellish certain parts of the room and table setting with festive accessories. For Christmas, a white table cloth is essential as it sets it apart from any other time of the year and elevates the room. The table itself is strewn with pomegranates and accents of red and gold found within the china and the red velvet napkin rings. If you look closely, even the napkins have a subtle red thread squaring off the corners.
Try something different. After covering the fireplace in greenery, I hung unusual tapered foliage from the mantlepiece, and from the candelabra overhead, to give the overall scheme some extra depth. Small touches of gold to the table top will also glitter prettily in the candlelight.
