Every year, Le Jacquard Français produces a limited edition table linen collection, especially created for the Christmas festivities. This one, called Magie d’Hiver (translated “Winter Magic”), served as the inspiration for my New Year’s Eve table setting (purchased at J&M Garden, Madison, NJ). I love the silver dreamlike winter scene featuring snowflakes and forest animals.

I carried the silver in the tablecloth throughout the table setting with a centerpiece consisting of a silver sleigh filled with pine branches embellished with beading and silver glitter, pine cones, silver snowflake ornaments, and big white faux amaryllis flower (from Seasons, Madison, NJ).

tableclothOn either side of the sleigh are two double candelabras with crystal prisms (from Home Sweet Home, Chatham, NJ) with pairs of silver candles from Caspari. The centerpiece is wrapped with silver ribbon bejeweled with crystals and pearls (from Seasons, Madison, NJ).

For the place setting, I layered Lenox Opal Innocence plates on silver chargers topped with crystal dessert bowls (Shannon by Godinger). The silver is Wallace Windsor Rose (1942) and belonged to my husband’s grandmother. The crystal stemware is Waterford Maquis, Allegro pattern. The vintage embroidered linen napkins are from Summit Antiques Center, Summit, NJ.
