a new year's eve dinner

A little table for six on New Year's Eve.

Silver chargers and glass plates have 

clock faces nestled between them.

Ready for champagne.

Silver and gold ribbon curls 

provide a festive touch.

Mini silver frames are used as place cards.

We’re all ready to welcome 2013!

A silver pedestal dish holds poppers for midnight.

Party hats and horns await guests.

Tick, tock, midnight will soon be here!

All’s well in the candlelight.

A few scattered ornaments complete the tablescape.

An elegant dinner is in the making.

The guests will soon be here.

An easy design for New Year's!

Silverware, glasses and plates: vintage 
Charger plates: Sur la Table, 
Napkins and table cloth: Home Goods
Napkin rings: Target  

All set!
Here's how I started....

I used 8 x 10 copies of clock faces.

And, these simple glass plates....

Hello, 2013!

Check out the updated version of this table here.

While I’m here today, I wanted to share some of my "Tablescaping Essentials" with you. I have a whole page on the Amazon website with my favorite picks for setting a beautiful table.

Quite often time is of the essence, and I have last minute projects or events to work on, so I turn to Amazon for one or two day delivery. You’d be surprised at how many amazing items they have to offer! And I'm constantly updating this page with my new favorites. 

You can check it out here, at Tablescaping Essentials.
