25 Ideas for a Silver and Gold Event

Now that winter is finally here, I’m trying to come up with a bunch of ways to decorate for festive, seasonally-appropriate parties. Silver and gold are the perfect colors for setting the mood of a winter wonderland, what with the sparkles and glitz. Check out these 25 ideas for how you can turn your event into a glittery, glamorous party.


  • Dip chocolate-covered fortune cookies in gold dust.
  • Use edible silver and gold spray paint to give everyday dessert items, like sugar cookies or apples, added glamour.
  • Create a gorgeous display of macarons dusted with edible gold glitter.
  • If you’re a skilled baker, try making a gold sequin cake.
  • Serve your appetizers and entrees on posh silver platters, and provide guests with gold silverware.


Silver and Gold Event Tablescape

Rental Table Linen

  • Let a stunning silver sequin table cloth take center stage by using minimal table accessories. Use simple white floral arrangements as the centerpieces, and accent with simple white napkins and charger plates.
  • Swag a silver sparkle overlay over a plain gold table cloth.
  • Use black table cloths and accent them with gold or silver napkins, runners, and chair accessories.
  • Alternatively, use silver or gold table cloths and accent them with black napkins and runners.
  • Accent jewel-toned table linens with metallic accessories such as table runners to create the illusion of jewelry.
  • Use coordinating shades of all gold or all silver in different textures or fabrics for each aspect of the table linen look—the table cloth, runner, napkins, and more.


  • Create a dramatic look with one large silver vase filled with fresh white peonies and gold floral accents.
  • Place gold-glitter candles atop bright silver candle holders or candelabras.
  • Place silver pomanders on top of large golden candlesticks.
  • Incorporate painted accent sticks or ribbons into your bouquets.
  • Fill glass bowls with gold and silver ornaments for a festive look.

Other Decorations

  • Identify each table with a gold glitter number.
  • Or, create glitzy gold name cards for individual seating.
  • Use gold glitter votives filled with plain white candles.
  • String up gold and silver party lights around the room.
  • Hang silver and gold paper lanterns for an intimate lighting effect.
