a tablescape for new years eve

With Christmas only ten days away, that means New Year’s Eve is around the corner! Today I’ve put together my dream New Years’ Eve tablescape by using some of my favorite vintage heirlooms and some new sparkly accents from Oriental Trading. 
I’ve updated my 2012 NYE “clock-themed” tablescape that some of you may remember. All you have to do to recreate this look is have a set of clear glass dinner plates which are really inexpensive and also so versatile! Then print off a set of clock faces so they fit the size of an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. No fancy paper needed! The clock faces will be round, so just cut them out carefully with scissors. Nestle them between your glass plate and a silver or gold charger plate. 
I used "Happy New Year" tiaras, with the headband removed, to accent each place setting with a fun salutation! 
Under each place setting is a round circle of glittered gold mesh fabric that I cut out, as well. The light hits all these sparkly accents and makes the table come to life! 
Winter evergreens layered diagonally down the center of this round table add the perfect foundation for the white roses and gittery gold votives that add a hint of glamour. A garland of dreamy silver stars sways quietly in the background.   
These antique silver goblets hold little arrangements of roses, but they also come in handy for a favorite beverage. 
  Champagne (or sparkling grape juice) is mandatory!
 Here's the view from the top…
 I can’t believe 2017 is almost here!
I love how this layer of glitter fabric detail adds dimension. 
A toast…
 to all of you!
 Thanks for stopping by and visiting this year!
  Cheers and Best Wishes... 
for the new year!  xoxo
