Gold Inspiration for Your Holiday Home

easy ways to add a touch of gold to your fall table

Hello! I’m Corey from Hey There, Home and I’m thrilled to be here kicking off the first of many roundups to get your creative juices a-flowing when it comes to getting your home ready for the holidays.

It seems that gold has worked it’s way into everyone’s hearts again this year and I’m not complaining. When everyone was into silver, I was still loving gold. It has taken over as the go to metallic so today I gathered up more than a dozen easy ways for you to add a touch of gold to your fall table.

Place cards are a really fun way to personalize your holiday table and make for a really fun diy cause there are so many possibilities.

Chelsea, from Lovely Indeed created these super simple, and stunning gold hoop place cards with one of my favorite little touches…air plants!

diy gold dipped concrete place card holders

Last year I created these gold dipped concrete place cards with a modern vibe and used them on my table for dinner, and for photos throughout the season.

Tan at Squirrelly Minds came up with a really simple way to use all of those pine cones that your kids may be collecting this time of year. Just give them a shot of gold and they make for a perfect place card holder.

We all know that paint can do magic and well, gold paint, I think we can agree does twice the magic.


If you are looking for simple and stunning without the worry of spills and stains, then my friend Haeley from Design Improvised has you covered with this gold stamped paper table runner. Easy-peasy.

You can even easily give a dose of gold to your inexpensive flatware and Cyd of The Sweetest Occasion shows us the easy steps.

Or how about creating a gold pumpkin centerpiece with a faux pumpkin like Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling did here?


Caitlin and Manda at The Merry Thought created a really modern look by painting their pumpkins. And of course the touch of gold is the cherry on top.


You could of course take it up a notch and emboss your votives with gold leaves like Francesca from Fall for DIY.


Or follow Amy’s lead at This Heart of Mine and give an extra special touch to some garland with gold leaf.

Gold tape is always a favorite too and total bonus, it is usually not permanent so you can decorate for the holiday and change it up next time.

These copper grid votives from Marlene at Idle Hands Awake are stunning!

And finally, you are going to definitely think up a way to use this adorable free printable from Bre at Bre Purposed. It is so simple and just the extra little bit of gold we all need in our lives.

Do I have you convinced that you just might need a little extra gold in your life this season? Bring on the spray paint, glitter, pipe, metallic tape, and anything else with that warm shine to it!

I guess it’s time to leave you to it! We are so excited to be kicking off what we know will be a season full of awesome ideas and are thrilled to have you along for the ride!

I’ll be back in December sharing a Christmas DIY, but until then be sure to come by and visit me at Hey There, Home!
