New Year’s Eve is one of my all-time favorite holiday’s (I have a lot of favorites, I know.)The pressure of the holidays is past; it is a night to celebrate the good times had over the year and dream with anticipation of the memories to be made in the upcoming months.
Whether it is for 10 or for 2, nothing is more glamorous than an intimate black-tie dinner to ring in the New Year. Prepare a fabulous table, put on your best dress, sit down to a decadent meal and linger into the New Year with lots of bubbly and laughter.
Creating a table suited to this occasion is best left to the chic metallic mixed with black and white, an elegant and classic combination that screams Hollywood glam, perfect for this yearly celebration. Raid your cabinets and mix various size vases down the center of your table, filling some with silver beads, others with noise makers or curled ribbon. Leave one of two for flowers but keep the look minimal here as well, using only one or two colors per vase for impact.
This is your time to pull out all the stops. Glam all the way. Cut crystal champagne glasses to reflect the light mixed with solid black wine goblets for a bit of drama, all set on pure white linen is sure to makes a bold statement sure to impress your guests.
For the placesettings, don’t be afraid to mix your plate patterns, especially if they have metallic accents, trust me it will all look great under candlelight. Pull it all together with a solid black napkin wrapped in silver beaded garland.
MUST HAVES FOR THIS TABLE:
Now pop the champagne and celebrate in style!
