Inside: Mercury glass, vintage silver, snow, and candles set the stage for this reflective, soft, and elegant silver and white winter tablescape perfect for January or even the holiday season. ➡
The holidays are over and the house is much quieter. There is a (very) brief time in the new year that I still like to embrace the beauty of winter and the sparkle of the holidays.
And the dining table is the perfect place with the glimmer of white and silver.
This silver and white tablescape set for early January entertaining is so very elegant. And so very peaceful.

The beautiful silver mercury glass finials that adorn my master bedroom fireplace mantel as Christmas decorations in December become the ideal focal point and touch of sparkle as winter decorations. They are the star and inspiration of this whole January table centerpiece, setting the stage for a reflective, soft, elegant table full of silver and white.
The mirror table runner is still in place from my holiday table and is another key element for this winter design. The reflection complements the mercury glass and candlelight beautifully and really amps up the twinkle of this beautiful winter table!
I added lots of white candles down the center of the table among the finials, both real and battery-operated. These battery-operated candles with the moving “flickering” flame are so realistic!
They have a timer so I set them to come on every evening. It’s so calming to walk through and see them glowing every night.
I placed vintage heirloom white plates with silver rims on top of silver chargers. They fit perfectly in this white and silver theme. Finishing the place settings are crystal faceted wine glasses also adding to the sparkle factor.
My vintage silver candleholders are a perfect partner to the mercury glass finials:
And what winter tablescape would be complete without a little (faux) snow? I sprinkled a bit of artificial snow around the centerpiece and then added some natural elements on top with cedar sprigs and pine cones. These cedar pieces are also faux, but I usually use real greenery from our cedar trees for centerpieces and floral arrangements.
And for more winter magic? It really snowed! We don’t often have this view from our dining room window in Texas:
This winter tablescape is a nice contrast to the dark winter days of January with its silvery light. And a relaxing place to have an unhurried dinner with family and friends.
A beautiful table of silver and white sparkle is not only perfect for the winter season, but it can also make a gorgeous, opulent holiday table. And white and silver always work beautifully for winter weddings. Or add a few Christmas table decorations or silver ornaments transforming this into a Christmas table setting.
Here are a few more elements that would shine in an elegant silver and white tablescape:
- A crisp white tablecloth
- Satin white napkins or silver organza napkins
- Rhinestone-trimmed champagne flutes
- Mercury glass vases and mercury glass candlesticks
- White roses, white tulips, white hydrangeas, or any other white flowers
