New Year's Eve Tablescape

I'm late to the party in posting this but I wanted to share the New Year's Eve tablescape I created last week.
Mr. Delight gave me a new camera for Christmas and I thought what better way to try it out than with this "sparkly" nighttime table.


Perhaps it will inspire you with a few ideas for next year.
The chandelier was given a festive look with some curling ribbon and disco ball ornaments.
 
I started with a centerpiece created with a trio of cylinder vases. These were filled with disco ball and silver ornaments along with faux ice chips and topped with sparkly "fireworks" type picks.
 
These were placed on mirrors and surrounded with candleholders and a couple of New Year's horns.
 
The colour scheme of silver, black and white creates an elegant sophisticated vibe to the table.

Martini glasses became placecard holders.
 
They were filled with ornaments, curling ribbon on a base of bubble glass balls.
 
A black placemat, silver charger, black dinner plate and floral swirl white salad plate make up each place setting.
 
A snowflake napkin ring adds some sparkle to a white napkin in a bow fold.
 
Silver gray damask tablecloth was a gift from my daughter...
 
 
...as were these pretty snowflake patterned pillows.
 
Over in the sideboard area, I made this "2015" banner and placed it over this huge clock that normally hangs in the kitchen. Of course, it is set to almost midnight.
 
 
In the middle of the sideboard, some bubbly is ready for when the clock strikes twelve.
 
There will be a toast to the New Year! 
 
My shiny penguin and some winter accents add to the celebratory décor.
 
 
Mr. Penguin looks like he is ready to party!

On the other end of the sideboard, a vase of sparkly branches add a festive touch and a New Year's hat and horn are waiting for the celebration.
 


Disco ball ornaments hung from the chandelier and a lit Christmas tree in the background create a party atmosphere.

Here's a list of a few items you might want to round up to create a similar look.

Thanks for visiting!

All the best for 2015!

Thanks for this systematic update. During the time of Christmas and New Year I have attended many events in New York. They all were well planned and I had so much fun there.
