a beautiful new year's celebration



Elegant white roses and hydrangeas, glittery stars and
brass candlesticks are simple elements that work perfectly with the tablescape.


Do you get sentimental about the year ending? Somehow, the passing of another year seems a little sad, but for me it’s ultimately overshadowed by the thoughts of what the new year will bring.

To celebrate the incoming new year, I love to set up a lovely table that celebrates the passing of time.

Time will definitely be on your side with a table set with festive clocks, glittery details and mixed metals. That’s what it’s all about when decorating for New Year’s Eve!

Everyone will want to ring in the New Year surrounded by opulence, and an upscale end-of-the-year dinner party like this is so easy to put together when you start with an amazing tablescape like this.


Setting a table with a mix of our favorite metals,
includes gold rimmed champagne glasses, silver chargers, copper lanterns
and a glittery rose gold table runner.
These fun clock plates are a cinch to make!


Clear glass dinner plates, silver chargers and a selection of pretty paper clock faces are all you need to create this festive party idea.

Simply layer the paper clock cutouts between glass plates and silver chargers.


Don’t be afraid to mix and match plates, glasses and other tableware. 
It only adds to the interest of the tablescape.


A striking bouquet of white roses and hydrangeas prove to be the perfect focal point for our dinner guests, while the cascade of glittery stars surrounding the table reminds us of 
the magic of midnight, 

when the ball drops, 

the fireworks go off 

and kisses are exchanged!



It’s all in the details, so finish of the year entertaining in style and
 make sure to have plenty of “midnight kisses” on hand for everyone
 to indulge in some decadent chocolate treats.


All that glitters is not gold. Don’t stop at one metallic element for your table. For this tablescape, I’ve selected a mix of gold, silver, copper and rose gold accessories.

This combination of metals creates that opulent look everyone loves on December 31st!


The magic of midnight awaits each guest, but while they wait,
they’ll enjoy a fun and festive New year’s eve table.


Copper lanterns and glitzy votives provide this table with just the right ambiance, while vintage brass candlesticks and elegant white tapers create a luminant backdrop.
