Table, Fit For A King!

Our Christmas eve table setting, fit for a King. I am using gold and silver accessories.

I alternated the gold and silver plate chargers with our Royal Crown dinnerware. A crown sits on top of every piece.

Jacqueline has these very same plates.

 Gold and cream napkins with a crown napkin ring.

Plenty of candles and glitzy decor.  I am using four crown pieces I  bought this year.

I found the crown centerpiece with the Fleur de lis at Tuesday Mornings.

The other two crowns were found at Ross and the last crown I found at 55 Downing Street.

I placed the gold crown over a battery golden candle.

I tied bows with golden wraps around each chair.  I am using our large gold hurricanes we bought years ago at California Backyard.  I know Alycia and Jacqueline are also a big fan of chair covers. I added golden beads to both of the hurricane vases and placed a luminara candle inside.

I love these candles.  The wick moves like a real candle. They have a
unique waving flame technology. You can also add a remote to make it
easier to turn them on and off.

You can find these candles online at Amazon, Frontgate , Bed Bath & Beyond, QVC, and Kohls.

They are pricier, but well worth it.  Find them on sale, then they are reasonable. Geez, I am starting to sound like a commercial.... ha ha.  I just happen to love them!

Here's a demo.  I am not receiving any compensation for this!

A wide angle shot of our dining room.  We are so thrilled with this addition we added about 4 years ago.

Lots of dripping crystals, and beads were added to this table.  Each place setting has a silver crown photo frame.

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.  My wish is for each and everyone to have a peaceful, happy, prosperous and healthy New Year!  Cheers!

  10. Hi Linda,
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Your table is your plates, I have a dessert plate that is similiar that I bought for whoever or whatever we are celebrating, I call it our
    King or Queen for a day plate, and I have a lil crown that I put a tea light candle in for them to
    blow out. Yea, I agree those candles look so real and you never have to worry about getting
    wax on anything. Loved all the snowflakes hanging over the table. It surely is a table that looks
    like it is for a King and your dining room set almost looks like a Kings banquet hall as well.
    Bet everyone enjoyed it immensely.
    You take care hon, and what a sweet lil great grandie you have there........ glad Mom and baby
    are doing well.

    Blessings for a Wonderful New Year hon,

  13. Somebody come help me up off the floor, please? What a GORGEOUS table, Linda!!! You pulled out all the stops on this is just beautiful. I adore your candle lit pretty. The guests had to feel like they stepped onto a movie set...perhaps from Downton Abbey. (can't wait for season 5 to start Jan. 5th)
    Praying for a Happy & Healthy start to a wonderful New Year for you & yours.
