New Year's Eve Tablescape

I'm a little late posting this but since its still the first month of the year, I'm going to reveal the New Year's Eve Tablescape I created for 2011.
A trend I have seen lately is the mixing of gold and silver and I went with that look for this celebratory dinner.
The centerpiece is a large glass vase filled with faux ice chips, "disco ball" ornaments and a white pillar candle.
 
 This was surrounded by gold and silver picks and flanked by two silver candle holders placed on a mirror.
 Each place setting was decorated with a party hat and horn. The men guests got this type of hat while....
  
 ...the women got to wear various tiara type adornments.
The trio of pillars add a gentle glow to the table.  
 Star shaped tealight holders placed on the mirror add to the festive atmosphere.

Yep, that's snow outside the window.  It is very high now that Mr. Delight has shoveled the roof after our last big dump.  It is kind of like living in an igloo!
Love these glittery ornaments that reflect the light.

These silver candle holders add more shine to the tablescape.

Of course, New Year's is very much part of the Christmas season in our house and the tree makes a pretty backdrop.



 I used my white, gold rimmed dishes (had for many years now) on silver chargers. 
 White placemats and black napkins were alternated at each place setting.
 The mirror runner is an ordinary dressing mirror that usually hangs in our spare room.

 Bring out the champagne! Its time to celebrate!
 Looking forward to all that 2011 has to offer!
 
 Thanks for bearing with me for this photo intensive post!

Your table is GORGEOUS!!! I love the bow napkin rings and also the combination of gold and silver. I'll bet the glow cast by the candles really made everything sparkle. Thank you for sharing this beautiful tablescape with us.

What a sparkly, pretty tablescape! I know that everyone had a fun time with this.

I love how you placed things on that mirrored surface to make it gleam even more, and I adored the mixing of silver and gold. I like that mix as well.

Very, very, VERY festive, elegant tablescape!

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

XO,

Stunning in every sense of the word! I love the mix of silver and gold. I don't know why people are afraid of that. It always looks so good! Your husband shoveled snow off the ROOF??!?!?! He is really dedicated! It's snowing again here in Lee's Summit, MO as I write this. We just dug out from 7+ inches dumped on us a couple of days ago, and now it's snowing AGAIN! Rats!!! We have a party to attend about 45 minutes from home tonight, and I do NOT want to drive in this! I'm going to pray that it stops before it reaches an inch! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

This table is absolutely gorgeous! I like the look of mixing silver and gold too. Makes everything look richer. And what a feast for the eyes. But then I love anything that sparkles, diamonds, crystal, lights, fireworks...so this is a favorite of mine!

I'm sure every guest at your table felt especially special! Happy New Year to you!
