10 Glam Metallic Table Accessories Perfect for Your Holiday Parties

Dress up your holiday table with brass, silver and gold for a luxe look that will wow your guests.

There's something about the holiday season that just screams sparkle and shine. And for us, that means metallics. Brass, silver, gold, pewter — we truly love them all. As you start to plan your holiday tables and centerpieces, we thought it would be fun to do a roundup of our top 10 metallic table accessories. Take a look:

Metallic Charger

White and Silver Table Setting

White and Silver Table Setting

While you don't necessarily need a charger underneath your dinner plates, they definitely bring a bit of pizazz to a table. They feel like table jewelry to me, so I always like to include them when I’m putting together my holiday tables.

Our Product Pick: Pewter Charger, West Elm, $39

Brass Flatware

New Year's Brunch Table Setting

New Year's Brunch Table Setting

Metallic flatware has been a major trend for the past few years and it's not going away anytime soon. Give in to the trend. A great set of gold flatware will pop on your dining room table. You can choose between a dull or shiny finish, though I personally love the shine.

Our Product Pick: Almoco Flatware, Design Within Reach, $53

Placecards might seem a bit formal, but I think it's a fun way to add interest to your table. Instead of traditional placecard holders you can use pinecones or acorns. But if you do want to use more traditional holders, these metallic pinecones are even better than the real thing.

Our Product Pick: L'Objet Pinecone Placecard Holder, Bloomingdales, $195


Metal Touches for Shine and Depth

There's nothing quite like a simple white candle in a silver candleholder. The effect on the mood and lighting of your room will be nothing short of stunning. (Try taking a selfie and then report back to us!)

Our Product Pick: Owl Mercury Glass Votive Holder, Etsy, $13

Holiday Decor

Silver and White Simple Christmas Table Setting

Silver and White Simple Christmas Table Setting

You can really have some fun on your Christmas table with metallic decor that keeps everyone in a festive mood. Small trees work well, as do reindeer or pretty metallic snowflakes. Try pairing white flower arrangements with your decor to amp up the brightness even more.

Our Product Pick: Metal Wire Christmas Tree, CB2, $29.95

Metallic Pitcher

Clever Vessels

A metallic pitcher can work as a fab table accessory. You can use a pitcher for water, homemade ciders or even for a flower arrangement.

Our Product Pick: Hammered Copper Pitcher, Williams-Sonoma, $99.95

Napkin Rings

Christmas Tree Napkin Rings

Christmas Tree Napkin Rings

If you like to use linen napkins when entertaining, consider getting yourself a set of metallic napkin rings. You could look for vintage rings and put together a mismatched set, or purchase a new, matching set.

These jingle bell rings will definitely keep the kids at your table happy.

Our Product Pick: Jingle Bell Napkin Ring (Metallic Red), Pier 1 Imports, $3.16

Copper Mugs

Festive Hot Chocolate Bar

Festive Hot Chocolate Bar

Copper mugs are everywhere now that the Moscow Mule cocktail has grown in popularity. But even if you're not serving Moscow Mules, I still think they make a nice touch. Try serving cold apple cider in your mugs or any other cocktails you might have on your menu.

Our Product Pick: Four-Piece Copper Mug Set, Kohl's, $34.99

Salt and Pepper Shakers

Whether you have one salt and pepper shaker on your table or have a set for each seat, they look great with metallic touches. For a fun twist, try filling up your salt shaker with colored sugar and using them on a dessert table. 

Our Product Pick: Mason Jar Salt and Pepper Shaker, World Market, $5.98

Metallic Vase

Almost any color arrangement of flowers would look gorgeous in a metallic vase. If you feel like there is a bit too much metallic on your table, try using silver or gold vases for arrangement in other areas of your house such as your entrance or in a guest bathroom.

Our Product Pick: Metallic Vase, Macy's, $39
