Christmas Table Setting in Gray, White, Gold – Gray and White Holiday Table Setting Idea.
Let’s start with the (faux) crystal candle holders and tapers. Old me would call them old fashioned, old lady table decor. But new/old me? New/old me calls them eclectic. Quirky. A fun mix of old with the new, sparkly white Scandinavian inspired trees.
And the gold flatware (which is actually gold toned stainless I found at Target)? Old me would see them as ostentatious. Flashy. Tacky. But new/old me? New/old me sees them as glam, rich and classy …
I’m liking how this whole new/old me thing works. 😉
Finally, the vintage-look-French-striped napkins (found mine at World Market). Old me would’ve called them rags. Relegated to wiping up messes. But new/old me? New/old me calls them linens. Crisp and fresh and deserving of a pressing before use.
Yes, I did iron them.
In keeping with the everything old is new again theme, I think I’ll apply it to myself. So when I look in the mirror instead of old me seeing wrinkles, new/old me will see lines of wisdom. And laughter. And smiles.
P.S. My apologies if this blog post is filled with ads for old people stuff and services. I mean, I did mention old people stuff in the copy and Google knows and documents everything. That’s not paranoia. That’s just fact.

i solved my lil’ problem with the laptop camera, by just taping a tiny piece of paper over the lens and if i want to use it i just pull the scotch tape. I find its much easier to just cover it then to go into the apps and fiddle with things i know nothing about, (yes, i’m old too) 🙂 btw, i love your old is new look.
I love these low tech solutions to my high tech problems! Thank you so much and Happy New Year! 🙂
New old me will also save a ton of money!! 😉
Turning off the computer camera is easy…or easy to block. Just put a piece of opaque tape over the tiny “eye” at the top of your open laptop.
This gave me a good laugh, thank you!!! I think your table is perfect, I really love your little white trees. I don’t know what it is about this year, but I’m loving all these little trees! Sharon is right, I tape over my camera hole with frog tape. Merry Christmas!
It all looks great Linda and so do you! I love the gold flatware and the gray placemats!
