Step 2:

Add pine-cones and oyster shells I painted gold pretty much placed down the middle of the table. You can use any size pinecones. I found these in my back yard so I saved money instead of purchasing them at the craft store.

Step 3:

I love candlelight dinners so I added some mini glass candle holders to bring warmth to the table. Tealights are perfect too.

Step 4:

Gold is an amazing color for the holidays and  I used my Lenox china which has a gold rim around the plates. I love how it goes with the gold oysters and pinecones.
