December is a time for holiday entertaining. During Christmas and New Year’s, parties and dinners seem to multiply. For a beautiful holiday tablescape, bring out the old and the new. Gather candlesticks of various sizes and metals, both glass and porcelain plates, and add a dash of greenery and candlelight for a little holiday magic.

A sentimental favorite dish sits atop a gold-rimmed dinner plate stacked on a glass charger. The three plates vary greatly in price and style. One was from a family collection, one was found in an antique shop, and one came from a big box store. But combined in a single setting, they complement one another to heighten the overall look.
