Set Your Table With Flair--New Year's Niceties
Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog! It's so funny as children, we can't wait to grow older; after the age 25, life becomes a blur! I cannot believe another new year is almost here! If you are planning an intimate New Years party, I hope you enjoy this post.
I chose to stay with the traditional colors of black and silver for this New Years Tablescape.
I added this floral arrangement. I chose only two colors; black and white, choosing to omit any greenery.
I wanted the table settings to pop, so I added white placemats and silver and black chargers.
I placed tumblers, flutes, and silver candleholders with white tapers at either side of the table next.
Next, at each setting I placed these glass candle holders.
I placed black napkins and my flatware in the traditional dinner style next.
In each of the candleholders, I placed individual bottles of bubbly (sparkling cider ❤). I love the idea of serving each person their own bottle...I found the idea via Pinterest for a wedding, but I think it would be just as fab for New Years or any special gathering!
and inside each, placed a small can of Fireglow gel fuel. Finally, I placed these top-hat placecard holders. To view the tutorial, visit the post on my blog The Crafting Table by clicking here.
