You've gathered your RSVPs and set your menu, but how's your holiday tablescape coming along? If you're in need of some Pinspiration, this modern Midas touch will make your opulent spread twinkle with hints of warm metals and soft cream. Simply follow these four steps, and scroll through below to shop our décor picks.

1. Create a World
A sculptural, clean-edged look defines this glittering array. Skip traditional floral arrangements, and opt instead for dramatic magnolia branches (spray them lightly with metallic paint for unexpected glimmer). Matte white pottery and serving pieces with stripes of brushed gold form a textured mix. Small details make all the difference here, like cocktail picks capped with tiny metallic balls or tapered candles that look like they've been dipped in molten gold. Geometric tree ornaments placed along the table's surface add visual interest.

2. Dish up the Delights
Indulge your friends with the good stuff. Go for luxe bites, from a tower of shrimp and mini caviar-topped blinis to slabs of white and dark chocolate broken into shards. Stock your bar with anything bubbly.

3. Offer an Activity
Gild your guests, setting out a range of metallic temporary tattoos, including bands of golden leaves and delicate chains. Your pals will flip for their sparkling jewelry.

4. Give Gifts to Go
Send friends off with a little sack of gold-foil-wrapped chocolate balls, which you can buy in bulk and tie up in a cellophane pouch.
